Interesting stuff on the horizon this year from WoTC

Other than the obvious big news about 5th edition ... WoTC has some interesting stuff slated.

One is what Mike Mearls calls a "euro" style board game.  We'll see if it lives up to that, but it sounds interesting none the less.

"Now on to board games. Lords of Waterdeep is slated for March. It's basd on the city of Waterdeep in Forgotten Realms. Each player takes on a lord of the city and competes for influence and prestige by recruiting adventurer's and sending them on quests. Euro style game. You'll be hearing more about this too as we go forward."

Then Dungeon Command:

To me interesting stuff jumping out so far and now for me Dungeon Command chief among them.  It sounds like a tactical battle game.  A return to minis out of WoTC as well.  Interesting stuff ... as well the cover art for the 1st ed reprints?

I'm about "Euro-boardgamed" out, but it will be interesting to see how their foray goes.

The diceless, less random minis game sounds intriguing. It depends on the figs themselves and what types of factions they put out.
