Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent game one of the best I've ever played Wife non-gamer love it! An Excellent worker placement game, easy to learn and non-gamers love it and become addicted to wanting more. Great to pull out after a dinner party if non-gamers have an open mind. Nice art on the cards and board. Great with expansion as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great game! I purchased this game last month and I couldn't be more pleased! The instructions in the box are slightly confusing, so I would recommend that one watch a video or two on YouTube to understand the game better. I watched one 10 minute video and was able to play the game quite easily. The artwork and pieces are very nice (kinda wish the money pieces were plastic instead of card), but I think my favourite thing about the game is the wonderful way the game packs up. Everything has a place and it's very tidy. I would definitely recommend this game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid strategy game for people looking beyond lighter stuff Lords of Waterdeep (LofW) is a DnD themed "worker placement" game, meaning each player has a supply of worker tokens which they spend to perform actions from within a pool of actions available to all players. The main goal is to complete quests cards, which can be completed by gathering and spending resources. The player who most effectively uses their workers to complete quests and strategically block their opponents from taking vital actions will be the winner! The components are very good. The board looks great, the cards have decent art, the money chips are custom shapes and the wooden pieces are colorful - overall the production is high quality. Seeing the game set up on a table is very impressive and eye-catching. LofW looks complex but it boils down to a very simple game of collecting. Those who are accustomed to deep strategy games may find it too simple and even repetitive after just a handful of plays. This game is great for people who have played beginner light strategy games like Settlers of Catan etc and want to "graduate" to something a little more complex. There is an expansion for LofW called "Scoundrels of Skullport". I haven't played it, but I've read/watched reviews and they are mostly positive. This means that if you enjoy the base game, you can get the expansion and extend its replay value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect intro to worker placement I have been slowly introducing my girl friend to Euro games. I was scared to try this one with her but decided before buying to download the Ipad app. After she played it a couple of times she wanted to try the actual version. It is an easy game to learn fast paced. There is a lot of strategy involved in this game if you make the wrong move you will fall to defeat. Every time I play this game it always comes down to the bonus round.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent game! As an individual relatively new to Euro-style games like this one, I have found it to be an enormous amount of fun, even after having played it multiple times. There is certainly some luck involved, but I have never felt as though I had no control over the outcome, and while some strategies may well be better than others in this way or that, it feels as though there is a variety of ways to succeed. It's relatively easy to pick up and get playing with enough complexity to keep you playing it again and again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Best for less experienced Euro boardgamers This is a good, fun boardgame, no question. However, people less experienced with Euro-style boardgames will get more out of it. After two games it seems the single best way to win is to focus on completing quests, and any other strategy is a distraction. That, and the fact the luck factor has a little more control over who wins than I would prefer, are what pull this game down a bit. By comparison, the better Euro-style boardgames offer more than a single viable strategy to win, and rely less on random luck or have ways to offset bad luck (e.g. trading in Catan). As an experienced Euro-boardgamer I still found the game a fun fantasy based alternative to the purely historical based Euro-games.
