Now there’s a new way to explore the depths of Undermountain–newly announced from WizKids, a new Adventure System Board Game brings the module of Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage to a board game near you.

The dungeon of Undermountain is legendary throughout the Realms. From its iconic entrance at the Yawning Portal, to the insane, immortal mage who built, designed, and populated it, Undermountain is home to monsters and treasures of legend. And now, WizKids is bringing this legendary dungeon to their Adventure System Board Games, which are board game representations of some of the more popular D&D Modules, like Against the Giants and Curse of Strahd. Let’s dive in and see what ol’ Halaster Blackcloak has cooked up for this edition.
