Even though I've never played the Lord of Waterdeep board game, I'm ridiculously excited for Wizards of the Coast to get deeper into the world of iOS- If only for the foolish hopes of an eventual real Dungeons & Dragons apps (Like virtual books, character creator, etc.) or an iOS Magic the Gathering Online client. While those things might never come, what we do have is a company renown for making great physical game ports teaming up with companies with great IP… And that's something worth being excited for.

Check out the trailer:

Additionally, be sure to check out this video that actually goes over how the game is played. The above trailer doesn't do the best job of that:

Lords of Waterdeep is scheduled to be released "this month," and while a price has yet to be announced, I can almost promise it'll be significantly less than the $34.99 the physical board game costs.

    Umm.... There actually already is a MTG online app, but it is only for iPad. I may be wrong, but I think it's the same kind of thing you get on ps3 and xbox 360: mtg 2014, 2013 etc

      That's Duels of the Planswalkers. While it is MTG, it is not MTG Online, which lets you build your own deck. It's basically an online version of the card game.

        I see, the whole pre made deck thing did bug me when I tryed on my xbox

    I've played Lords of Waterdeep once and have been itching to play again. It's an excellent game.

    Good, substantial, high quality board game. And now there will not be a zillion pieces to juggle and/or

    Good, substantial, high-quality board game. And now there won't be a zillion various pieces to juggle and/or misplace. I'm liking this physical-to-virtual board game porting trend, and I hope it continues.

      Now if only someone would port Runebound and Descent, then I would be a happy camper!

    Lords of Waterdeep is a really fun game. Good for all ages. When you first read the rules it might seem intimidating, but after a turn or two it's a piece of cake. That's not the same as saying that the strategy is obvious. I'm still not that great at the game, but I always enjoy playing it.

    Lords of Waterdeep is one of my favorite boardgames in recent years! It's basically a resource management game disguised as a themed Dungeons and Dragons game, and trust me, it straddles that great balanced line of feeling like both a euro-boardgame and a (Ameritrash) western-boardgame.

    In short: this can't come out soon enough! Minute one purchase!

    The Boardgame is great and this looks like a literal port as opposed to a port lik "Stone Age" let's hope that means it will come to iPhone as well
