Lords of Waterdeep is a fairly new worker placement game that has received a lot of praise from the community. The mechanics are simple to grasp, the theme is light and fun, and the art is pretty nice too. All of this combines into what I feel makes a great gateway game. If you’re trying to get your friends into heavier games, this would be a good place to start. It has the D&D name on the box, but it doesn’t really have too much to do with D&D and shouldn’t scare you away if you’re not into that sort of thing.
