Tyrants of the Underdark: A New Dungeons & Dragons Board Game is Coming!

Gale Force Nine (GF9) has announced that they are releasing a new Dungeons & Dragons board game in the Spring of 2016. Tyrants of the Underdark is set in the Forgotten Realms and will be playable with 2-4 players in about 60 minutes. Tyrants of the Underdark is being designed by the same team that brought us Lords of Waterdeep so this will be an exciting addition to the D&D universe. The GFN Press Release also states:
Designed by Peter Lee and Rodney Thompson, Tyrants of the Underdark is a competitive board game in which you play as a drow house recruiting monsters, cultists and demons to aid you in controlling locations such as Menzoberranzan and Blingdenstone. Using power and influence as resources, Tyrants of the Underdark features multiple strategies you can use in crafting your deck of minions. Be the spymaster infiltrating your enemy's strongholds or the deadly war-leader concentrating on assassinating enemy troops. No matter how you decide to play, whoever controls most of the Underdark at the end of the game wins, unless there's some hidden strategy in play.
There are also some images of sample cards, miniatures, a market deck, and a house card from ICv2 that look really cool.
