From the review:
Wizards of the Coast surprised everyone this year in making the Lords of Waterdeep. It is a worker-placement game which takes place in the city of Waterdeep. Players are wealthy lords, hiring the locals, and completing quests for cash and privilege Each lord has a specialty which is kept secret from the other players. These are used to net them bonus points at the end of the game. Waterdeep plays 2-5 players and takes around an hour to complete.
