Lords of Waterdeep Expansion: Scoundrels of Skullport (D&D Boxed Game)
Book Description
Release Date: August 20, 2013 | Series: D&D Boxed Game

Scoundrels of Skullport adds TWO new expansions to the Lords of Waterdeep board game -- Undermountain and Skullport -- inspired by the vast dungeon and criminal haven under Waterdeep. Players can choose to include one or both expansions in a Lords of Waterdeep game. The expansions also allow the addition of a sixth player.

The Skullport expansion adds a new resource to the game: Corruption. The Undermountain expansion features bigger quests and more ways to get adventures. Scoundrels of Skullport also includes new Lords, new Buildings, and set-up materials for a sixth player.

This is the only one I could find on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Lords-Waterdeep-Expansion-Scoundrels-S...

EDIT: According to that link, price is to be $39.99 with a release date of August 20, 2013.

EDIT: Seems pretty pricey. For comparison, the MSRP on the base game is $49.99

Nothing like making sure they have enough development time! August 2013? Really? How much work is it to knock that thing out? I am pretty disappointed with WOTC's dedication to the game. I guess I am spoiled with Thunderstone, Quarriors, Rune Age and just about every other expandables game system on the market today that have a decent release schedule. LOW is a bonifide moneymaker, too. shake

I don't have a problem with this.

Already when the main game came out, they hinted at a future expansion. This means they probably had most of it developed or at least had some ideas. Then they saw the game was well received and also listened to feedback (we want more and different lords). So they had all the time needed. Also don't forget the game is hot and people want more of it (I do). So why wait and let it cool off?

Keep in mind that the release date is what was found on an Amazon page - there isn't anything official about it. So, fingers crossed, maybe sooner?

Though, when someone found info about Wizards of the Coast's Dungeon! remake, it was found on Amazon in March of 2012. It released 7 months later in October, 2012. I suppose this time frame (December, 2012 to August, 2013) is almost the same.

GenCon would seem very likely for wizards to release it.

I know the board is big already, but I would love to see board add-ons ala Talisman. That would really expand the game out into new areas....

Something has to justify the proposed $39.99 expansion price so perhaps there will be an extra board.

The amazon price is down to 28.57$
I wonder if it's too early to pre-order ...

Remember that for pre-orders with Amazon, they give you the lowest price it's been before the release date. So if it dips down to $15 for one day, that's the price you'll get it at.

But they charge you when you order? And then give you money back?

This isn't entirely about development time...

Two words: GenCon Release.

No, they only charge you when they're getting ready to ship the item out. Note that this is how it's done on Amazon US. I can't say for certain what their policies are in other countries, but I'd imagine they're similar.

Oh man oh man oh man, I can't wait!

My only sadness is that it won't all fit in one box, what with the perfectly designed insert.

Unless...they make the new insert and box big enough to house the entire thing!

... and design an insert that will fit sleeved cards!

Oh BTW, how awesome would it be if the expansion came with mini-meeples to replace the generic cubes?

The existing design does just work with the green sleeves from Mayday. It's snug though.

But yeh not seeing how an expansion will integrate with the existing box. Perhaps that explains the price, a new box and insert?
