Lords of Waterdeep

Waterdeep, the City of Splendors -- the most resplendent jewel in the Forgotten Realms, and a den of political intrigue and shady back-alley dealings.

Lords of Waterdeep on iOS brings Wizards of the Coast's award-winning board game to iOS devices. Players will be able to enjoy games against the computer, friends or the online community through Playdek's real-time and asynchronous game servers.

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.
