Lords of Waterdeep Part I

This Friday, in lieu of our D&D game (which is temporarily on hold), we'll be streaming a Beamdog office game of LORDS OF WATERDEEP.

If you've ever wanted to know more about this board game, tune in and watch the Beamdog staff learn the rules. Amber, an experienced player, will teach the others how to hide their identities as the masked Lords of Waterdeep while they gather resources (fighters, rogues, clerics, and wizards) to complete quests in the City of Splendors.

We'll be playing the original version of the game with no expansions at 3 pm MDT on Friday, July 24 on our Twitch stream. In the future we intend to demo more boardgames (perhaps the TEMPLE OF ELEMENTAL EVIL!), so if there's a game you'd like to request we demo, drop us a note in the comments or tweet us at @Beamdoginc.

Announcing Siege of Dragonspear

We are pleased and proud to announce Siege of Dragonspear, the newest, largest expansion for Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition. The original 25+ hour storyline bridges the gap between Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition and Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition in the classic 2D style of the originals.

You can visit now to find all the details on the new expansion.

Last night we had an amazing announce party at the Art Gallery of Alberta. We gathered in the theater and watched the timer count down to zero. The sound of all our guests counting down from ten was awesome! Then the trailer for Siege of Dragonspear played. Minsc's voice called out in the dark theater: "My friend! It has been too long since Boo and I have seen you!" What an incredible experience.

Trent Oster, our president, talked about Beamdog and how we reached this stage of designing, developing, and distributing our own games. Phil Daigle then talked about Siege of Dragonspear and all its amazing new features, which were later demoed on twitch. If you missed the live stream, you can watch the video and trailer here.

Thank you to all our guests who turned up to help us celebrate, and to all the fans who watched us live. We'll have more content about Siege of Dragonspear on the Beamblog in the following weeks!
