    Lords of Waterdeep is an elegant D&D-themed board game port that fans can enjoy in both single and multiplayer modes.

    Lords of Waterdeep provides an intense, strategic experience that’s best played with friends, and though it can occasionally lean on the rules to the point of becoming convoluted, the varied gameplay and great potential for inter-personal interactions make for an awesome experience.

    A superb re-creation of a popular and unusual Dungeons & Dragons board game, with excellent usability, tough AI opponents and little multimedia tweaks that really add to the experience.

    Compared to some of the card games Playdek has handled, Lords of Waterdeep has a less busy play area, so it works out well even on the smaller screen of the iPhone

    it might be a great board game it doesn't seem like it), but its a pretty boring ipad game. I tried learning the game on youtube and watched an indepth review of the board game to get better acquainted before i started playing, but that didn't really enhance the experience. I got this b/c i used to be a D&D fan, and i like board games, and have bought lots of Ipad and Iphone games just to see if they live up to their reviews. This is one of those purchases, where I feel like Homer Simpson when he goes Doh! Does not give you any of that D&D feel I was anticipating. I've been playing all sorts of strategical games on the ipad like Skulls of the Shogun and Hero Academy, doesn't give you any of that feeling either. Playing other opponents feels so disconnected, you might as well be playing your foot.. Collecting wizards, fighters, and rogues complete quest, but not actually using them or giving them any role play value seems pointless to me, might as well call them red square and blue square, which they do. This game is not fun, and I'm kind of annoyed at the high price and don't want other people to lose their money pointlessly like I did. Full Review »
