App description: Wizards of the Coast and Playdek present the award-winning Dungeons & Dragons board game Lords of Waterdeep!

Now available: The award-winning Dungeons & Dragons® expansion for Lords of Waterdeep Scoundrels of Skullport!

Skullport -- also known as the Port of Shadows is nestled in the heart of Undermountain. A haven for nefarious crimes, underhanded deals and back-alley murders, Skullport is a hive of evil beneath the City of Splendors.

This expansion brings with it Corruption, a new resource module that has both benefits and disadvantages to it for players. This expansion also includes the Rapid Expansion Promo Card which allows you to obtain more buildings to add to your collection.

New Lord Cards, new quests, and new intrigue cards can be found. The map has been expanded and advanced buildings have been added that will provide more resources for the players to acquire. These additional cards and buildings are sure to make for a challenging game against strategic players.

The expansion also adds a player, for a total of 6 giving even more players the chance to engage in D&D action whenever and however they want.

Welcome to Waterdeep, the City of Splendors! A city run by a secret society of masked Lords who rule with shady back-door dealings and unmatched political power. In Lords of Waterdeep players will play as one of these masked Lords and will need to recruit adventurers to go out and complete quests for them. The more quests they complete, the more control and influence they have over the city.

Players can expand the city by purchasing buildings that will open up new opportunities within the city walls. Intrigue cards can be used to help the player and may also either help or hinder their fellow Lords in their quest to become the supreme ruler of Waterdeep!

Lords of Waterdeep is a turn-based strategy game played in 8 rounds and can be played against AI or with up to 5 human players. Players take turns assigning their agents to do their bidding, whether it is to recruit new adventurers to their tavern or purchase a new building for the city. Points and resources are gained by completing quests, playing Intrigue cards, constructing new buildings or having other players utilize the buildings you have constructed. At the end of the 8 rounds bonus points are awarded and the player with the most points at the end wins the game.

There are at least a few means via Intrigue cards, buildings, and quest rewards to reduce it, but it is far easier to get than remove.

One of the cleverer aspects is how the penalty you get at the end of the game is NOT just based on your personal corruption level, but how corrupt Waterdeep has become as a whole. Basically every token of corruption becomes a bigger penalty the more tokens are distributed amongst your fellow players.
Sounds good. Bought the add-on but not in the mood to start a game today... It's added another section to the board? Can it be played together (optionally) with the first expansion?

Yes, and yes. Playing with both expansions sets the game to "long game" mode, and removes a random collection of 25 intrigue cards, 30 quest cards, and 12 building tiles from the base game.

Can't hug every cat.

How is the tutorial for a total board game newbie? I would love to start learning board games and this one sounds pretty fun. Also how is it on iPhone? I'd love to be able to play on the go, but I have an ipad 2 if the iPhone version isn't up to par.

It is good but as a newbie myself I learned from some various youtube videos explaining the basics. Trust me, it's very very easy. To understand how easy it is, let me tell you that in your turn, you can do only two things, one: place a worker, two: complete a quest.
But the difference is where to place a worker so that you can have the most benefit of your turn or the game in general.
It's not like other games where you have so many rules and it's chaotic. It's simple but not for kids.
In iPhone 4 that I had it, it was slow. I couldn't play it properly. Maybe it was due to ios 7 but in iphone 5s is very good due to the bigger screen and it's very smooth. I believe that in all the iphone 5 is all right but I cannot be sure. It's not frustrating either because the game is recommended for vertical position like the board itself = aka the iphone in normal position but you may need to do some times a zoom in / out but then again you don't have to.
It's recommended for iphone & ipad and I'm glad that playdek shows support to IOS in general :-) Neither Bang! is on android as well. One reason too for not having an android device

Anyone else seeing a message saying there's an update when trying to play online? The App Store shows no update, and I can't play online because of this message. Is an update really coming or did something get messed up on my device?

[update] nevermind, just got the App Store update notification.

The update is live in Australia - fixing a few different bugs and allowing Poison Quill to work with Study in the Librarium.

Bump for both the current sale price and that the IAP expansions are also on sale for just a buck each!

I usually do not have the patience for deeper strategy games, but I found it really easy to get started with Waterdeep. The tutorials do a good job of transitioning a new user, but it will be a long time until I master this game. I really love it.
