On The Horizon: Lords Of Waterdeep expansion...

Last night we got yet another play of Lords of Waterdeep in with my ridiculously cute new DnDeeples (which can be ordered from a very nice Canadian guy on BGG.)  Suffice to say having little warriors, wizards, rogues, and clerics instead of cubes makes a world of difference to game play.  I'm now realizing this rather lightweight, remarkably unoriginal worker-placement game may well be the most played game for me this past year.  It does nothing new but it still does it quickly, simply, and with a ton of fun and interaction.

So I'm pretty excited to see the announcement for the upcoming expansion on BGG:

Lords of Waterdeep: Scoundrels of Skullport adds two new expansions to the Lords of Waterdeep board game – Undermountain and Skullport – inspired by the vast dungeon and criminal haven under Waterdeep. The Skullport expansion adds a new resource to the game, Corruption, while the Undermountain expansion features bigger quests and more ways to get adventures. Players can choose to add one or both expansions to the base game.

Lords of Waterdeep: Scoundrels of Skullport also includes new Lords, new Buildings, and materials for a sixth player.
We knew this was coming from the extra space on the board but it's still something to look forward to!
