While Lords of Waterdeep is a great game in its own right, the Scoundrels of Skullport takes the game to a higher level. When Lords of Waterdeep was released for the iOS, the game was a faithful recreation, but it is hard to go back to the base game after playing it with the expansion. Now Playdek has finally make the Skullport portion of Scoundrels of Skullport available.
Playdek, a leading mobile video games publisher, today announced that Scoundrels of Skullport, an in-app expansion for its award-winning Lords of Waterdeep game for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, has arrived on the App Store. Set in the Dungeons & Dragons Forgotten Realms universe from Wizards of the Coast, the Skullport Expansion takes players into the heart of Undermountain where new dangers await.
Skullport — also known as the Port of Shadows – is nestled in the heart of Undermountain. A haven for nefarious crimes, underhanded deals and back-alley murders, Skullport is a hive of evil beneath the City of Splendors.
The expansion gives players the Rapid Expansion Promo Card to garner more buildings faster and stop opponents from doing the same, and a new resource module – Corruption.Unlike other resource modules, having Corruption penalizes a player at the end of the game. Players must strike a balance between greed and the potential harm of Corruption.
“We are pleased to deliver the Scoundrels of Skullport expansion so quickly to our fans who are hungry for more Lords of Waterdeep,” said Joel Goodman, CEO, Playdek. “Playdek’s partnership with Wizards of the Coast continues to bring these great hot properties to mobile platforms for all levels of players to experience.”
With the expansion, players receive three new lords including Irusyl Eraneth, Sangalor and the Xanathar also known as “the Eye.” Players also receive four new quests for each quest type, new intrigue cards and an expanded gameboard with three new buildings.
The game supports up to six players (up from five) in pass-and-play and asynchronous online multiplayer, as well as player-versus-computer, giving even more players the chance to engage in D&D action whenever they want.

If you enjoy the base game, then I highly recommend getting both of these expansions, especially since Undermountain is only a dollar. Playdek does a great job with their translations, and these are no exception. If you aren’t sure, be sure to check out my review of the original game.
