Oh my God, I'm so excited for this. August can't come soon enough.

New Lords means I might even put Larissa back in the game, heh!

Yeah, I'll likely pick this up. More LoW? Yes please!

The thing that surprises me the most is that they waited this long for the expansion.

Considering the cost of the expansion, it better be huge. I paid all of a buck or so more for the game itself. Glad to see the expansion happen though.

Wow. Almost 2 years for an expansion? Good thing there's 2 expansions in the box. It feels like they're losing money by waiting that long.

It would appear they are at least taking their time and not churning out crap like those D&D ripoff automated games. this is a good solid game and it looks like they are adding to the game but doing it carefully.

I'm not sure about that. LoW may actually be gaining momentum. It gets mentioned in forums and podcasts as much now as it ever did, and I am seeing it start to break into bigger chains. (And I know that my game group keeps asking for it regularly.)

It's possible that it's gaining momentum, but I've seen cries for expansion for a couple of months now. Will those people still have interest in 9 months? It's hard to say. Maybe the newness will wear off. I've got over 50 plays in and I'm not sure if I can wait 9 months.

Well, it is mentioned in the manual.

I think my wife and I will still be chomping at the bit even years in the future. This game has been fun each and every time we play, and it is pretty much the first game we introduce to "new gamers".

That being said... Yeah, it sucks that they are taking a year and a half to release an expansion that was mentioned in the manual. Compare that to Mage Knight, which released an "unplanned" expansion in less time. Who'da thunk WoTC wouldn't be milking us for 3 or so expansions a year!?

Great news. Lords of Waterdeep is high on my wishlist, after one play at a convention, so I'll be picking it up soon. An August 2013 release suits me perfectly

I wonder if LOW wont become another "staple" game like TTR, Dominion, Settlers, etc. It's ease of entry makes it very accessible. Expansions sound like a great idea. But quality is key. Lets see....

These aren't the Lords we're looking for.

But...but...does this mean that LOW, which has my favorite box insert EVER, will no longer fit every single game component perfectly?

Yes. I therefore suggest not buying it.

There is always a chance the expansion box insert will hold the base game as well as the expansion.

WOOOO! Love waterdeep. The one thing is that I am really hoping the expansion includes more Lords.

Echoing the anguish from some other posters, why only next year August? LoW was a huge success and should have followed up immediately with an expansion. I hope they incorporate more interaction between the lords (sabotage through intrigue, agents, blockings, etc), linked quests (for bonus points) and special characters as adventurers or agents (e.g. Drizzt, Wulfgar, etc)

Anyway, excited as a spring bunny now!

I had mine sleeved with perfect-fit sleeves and it worked moderately OK. But I ended up unsleeving them just to take advantage of the "fits every component perfectly" aspect of the insert. Plus I needed the sleeves for a different game.

How cool would it be if they included mini-meeples in the expansion. Where's that petition? I'll sign it!

Given the strong sales numbers they could easily justify small figures representing the character classes. If they made them 15mm scale or similar to the pieces in the Risk game they could be molded in the corresponding color of plastic.

Someone already made mini meeples. I got them off of here somewhere. I love them! They weren't that expensive either
