WizKids Announces Dungeons & Dragons: Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage Board Game

WizKids has a new board game they're working on that takes place in one of the most iconic locations in the Forgotten Realms. It's Dungeons & Dragons: Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage. Players head through Undermountain in search of treasure. Will you make it out alive? WizKids is offering both a standard and a deluxe version of the game.

From the website:

In the city of Waterdeep rests a tavern called the Yawning Portal, named after the gaping pit in its common room. At the bottom of this crumbling shaft is a labyrinth dungeon known as Undermountain, domain of the mad wizard Halaster Blackcloak, who has seeded his lair with monsters, traps, and mysteries.

As an adventurer in Dungeons & Dragons: Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage board game, explore Undermountain in search for treasure while navigating numerous traps and ominous monsters.
