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.


Praise for Lords of Waterdeep!

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.

Are you sure about the price sanuku?
I think 9.99 in NZ is right.

Instabuy.
I love the physical boardgame.

Unexpectedly cheap compared to Agricola, but still not going to touch it without the Scoundrels of Skullport expansion, or if SW Master Set is released. Whichever comes first.

Edit: Sanuku fixed his pricing error

Looks good but.....
If they think I'm buying this when they haven't even sorted out the restore purchase in summoner wars they are sadly mistaken.
It's been months now and I still don't have all the packs I bought.

My most anticipated game for tonight! I can rarely ever get a bunch of people over to play so being able to play one of my favorite boardgames at my leisure or even start the game on my iPad while over at a friends house with no need for setup is going to be a nice feeling!

Also: I didn't know that the game has expansions! I own the physical version and am normally in the know of things like that! Thanks to the poster who mentioned expansions for this! Time to go spend some money on buying those later today!

This will likely contend for my GOTY. I absolutely love the physical version and it looks like they did a stellar job on the implementation.
