With board games and smart phones being two of the most popular diversions around nowadays, it’s inevitable the two will meet. I thought I’d look at a few of the app versions of of board games I’ve played. I won’t talk too much about the game itself; I want to focus on how good the app adaption (appaption?) is.

Been a while since I’ve done one of these! I’ve talked about some items I like, and one that I hate, so let’s talk about a building I’m more in the middle on: The Lost Cavern.
My wife asked me, “Are you going to talk about any of the cards you don’t like in the One Item posts?” Oh yeah, I could talk about some of the lame cards and buildings too! So today we’ll talk about the lamest building in LoW, Hall of Three Lords.
Ah, the Ambassador. A very powerful little agent that can make a world of difference in your game. I admit I didn’t quite understand him when I started playing LoW, but since I did he’s become one of my favorite little guys.
Howdy, in this edition of One Item we’re going to look at a very fun quest called…ha I have absolutely no idea what this quest is actually called, let me look it up…OK it’s called Threaten the Builders Guilds apparently. It’s a very cool quest because as part of the reward you get all the buildings currently in Builder’s Hall!
In this week’s edition of One Item, we’re going to look at what I call the “crazy buildings”. They’re a set of 5 buildings, 1 for each resource and 1 for gold, that yield a crazy amount of resources for everyone. Not just the player who lands there, but the owner, and possibly even the other players!
Per Jessica’s request, the next Lords of Waterdeep card I’m going to quick-hit you with is…Deal with the Black Viper*. For a long time this was my quest, and I would drop everything to acquire and do it when it came up. Nowadays I don’t go at with quite as much abandon, but it is definitely still one of my favorites.
*- One of the funny things about doing these posts is I’ll actually learn some names of things in the game. Despite playing hundreds of times I probably know the name of fewer than 10 things in LoW, since their names don’t matter.
I thought it would be fun to do some quick-hitting mini-posts that focused one specific card or building in Lords of Waterdeep. It would be fun to do one of these every week or so, but we’ll see how it goes 😉
Hi! It’s been a minute since I last posted here, and to try to get back into the swing of things I thought I’d do a quick post about an old favorite, Lords of Waterdeep. My now fiancé and I have played this so much that we’ve adopted a number of house rules to customize the game. Feel free to use any of all of these in your game, or if you have any of your own add them in the comments!
Back to good ole’ Waterdeep! I know I’ve talked about it a lot, but I’ve played the heck out of it and it’s such a great game I just can’t stop myself. I talked before about specific plot quests but I thought this time I would take a step back and talk about a more general aspect: the quest types and how they play.
