Lords of Waterdeep

Thanks to Susan for suggesting this:

"I played this at Board Game Bash and promptly purchased my own copy. It is easy to learn but complex enough to be a lot of fun!

Game description from the publisher:

Waterdeep, the City of Splendors – the most resplendent jewel in the Forgotten Realms, and a den of political intrigue and shady back-alley dealings. In this game, the players are powerful lords vying for control of this great city. Its treasures and resources are ripe for the taking, and that which cannot be gained through trickery and negotiation must be taken by force!

In Lords of Waterdeep, a strategy board game for 2-5 players, you take on the role of one of the masked Lords of Waterdeep, secret rulers of the city. Through your agents, you recruit adventurers to go on quests on your behalf, earning rewards and increasing your influence over the city. Expand the city by purchasing new buildings that open up new actions on the board, and hinder – or help – the other lords by playing Intrigue cards to enact your carefully laid plans."

    We played with 5 then 3 players and it played well both times! The second time around we got a bit more into trying different strategic approaches as well as some wicked shut-you-down action. This game is deceptively simple to learn, revealing its complexity as players become more experienced.

    About how late do these usually go? Looking forward to it!

    And yes, Kate, since Waterdeep just came out a few months ago, most of us are still beginners.
