The Skullport expansion brings with it Corruption, a new resource module that has both benefits and disadvantages to it for players. This expansion also includes the Rapid Expansion Promo Card which allows you to obtain more buildings to add to your collection.

New Lord Cards, new quests, and new intrigue cards can be found. The map has been expanded and advanced buildings have been added that will provide more resources for the players to acquire. These additional cards and buildings are sure to make for a challenging game against strategic players.

The expansion also adds a player, for a total of 6 giving even more players the chance to engage in D&D action whenever and however they want.


The Undermountain expansion gives players the chance to explore Undermountain, a vast and multileveled dungeon beneath Mount Waterdeep that once served the crazed wizard Halaster as a site for magical experiments. In this labyrinthine with few refuges for weary adventurers, players can enter new quests to discover rumored wealth but must brave the mysteries and monsters beneath the City of Splendors.

With three new Lord cards including the Wizard Halaster Black Cloak, clever dandy Danilo Thann, and Halaster’s apprentice Trobirand, players can test their skills on four new quests and new intrigue cards. An expanded gameboard with three new buildings and an extra agent, as well as a handful of new buildings for purchase, keep the gameplay challenging.
