Description & Details

Lords of Waterdeep is a strategy board game, set in the D&D world of Waterdeep.

Wizards of the Coast and Playdek present the award-winning Dungeons & Dragons board game 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.

Praise for Lords of Waterdeep!

Well done and faithful implementation of the boardgame. Good AI strength, multiplayer is well supported. Visually is excellently rendered. You may want to shut off the audio. The music is repetitive though not too intrusive. There are some sound files that sound like placeholder files were left behind - instead of instrumental music cues, there are what sound like the game's developers humming little tunes. Controls are probably better on tablets, very fiddly on phones. Overall a good buy.

This app doesn't work on my Google Pixel after installing Android Oreo. I tried fiddling with several app permissions without luck.

I cannot install on my Google Pixel. Love the app on iPad, but want to use on phone.

Lack of notifications on Android 8.0 makes multiplayer super annoying...

I have one of those notifications (red circle w/ white number on top right of app) and I have clicked EVERYWHERE on the app, in the app itself and I don't know how to make it go away. I have turned off notifications in the app itself and on my phone so any advice is appreciated. Other than that...it's one of my favorite apps to date

I own and have played the actual board game many times, so I feel like I'm not a beginner player. However, the AI on this game is simply too hard. Even on the "easy" setting, it is virtually impossible to win a game against the computer even if you play optimally, or pretty close to it. It gets to the point where, although it's a great game and well-implemented, it's frustrating to play since you can rarely, if ever, win.

Love it! I bought it for myself on my Nvidia Shield K1, bought a copy for my mom, and also installed it on my LG G5. Runs great on all of them. My only comaint is that all the expansion stuff is locked out on my LG G5, amd when I go to the in-app store, it shows the expansions for sale but says I already own them. Is there any way to synch the in-app purchases so my phone can access the expansion content? Thanks for making this! 😁

3 stars for now. When it runs I love it but on my LG Gpad F second generation I have tried to play about 10 times. I can't make it past the first round without it crashing. Once that is fixed 5 stars all the way.

I was pretty excited to see this game available for Android. I have the board game and the expansions (plus a Broken Token organizer insert, upgraded metal coins and Meeples instead of cubes). Needless to say...this digital version is a fantastic replica of the actual board game. My only "complaint" (which is minor) is that the music that plays during the set up or load screens is very repetitive. However is isn't a problem at all during the game. All in all...it plays great on my ZTE Warp Elite phone and I look forward to eventually playing it on my tablet as a bigger screen would be most welcome. Highly recommended!
