The lights are on
Today, for the very first time, a Dungeons & Dragons themed board game has landed on iOS devices. The award-winning Lords of Waterdeep is now available to download for $6.99 on iTunes.
The digital board game is developed by Playdek, best known for the games Agricola, Ascension, and Summoner Wars. The game is compatible with iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch, and requires iOS 4.3 and up to play.
The iOS version of Lords of Waterdeep allows players to jump in at any time and play on all their iOS devices, after downloading it for one. It also lets them play against friends, the online community, or against the computer.
Our Take:Lord of the Waterdeep is one of the rare D&D themed games that isn't impenetrable to people unfamiliar with board games, so it's a great selection for Playdek's foray into making D&D titles for iOS devices. To learn more about it, check out Miller's in-depth impressions of the board game.
