Dungeons & Dragons - Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage Board Game

October 5, 2018 - 1:31am

WizKids have published multiple games using their Adventure System which makes them all compatible with one another. Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage Adventure System Board Game is the latest release for this system. Other releases for this game system include Castle RavenloftThe Legend of DrizztWrath of AshardalonTemple of Elemental Evil, and The Tomb of Annihilation. 

"In the city of Waterdeep rests a tavern called the Yawning Portal, named after the gaping pit in its common room. At the bottom of this crumbling shaft is a labyrinthine dungeon known as Undermountain, domain of the mad wizard Halaster Blackcloak, who has seeded his lair with monsters, traps, and mysteries."

This game includes multiple scenarios, challenging quests, and game play designed for 1-5 players, ages 14+. There are also new Environment and Bane/Boon cards, and Trap and Spell decks. The other significant improvement is that players can now reach level 4 with their characters and gain even more powers ... so you can finally tackle the earlier, harder games with characters more capable of handling them (I'm looking at you Wrath of Ashardalon). As with previous incarnations of the Adventure Game System, the Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage Adventure System Board Game will also release with a Premium Edition which features pre-painted miniatures. This game will be available in March of 2019.
