A Game of Thrones (2nd Edition)
In A Game of Thrones: The Card Game, the warring factions of Westeros await your command, inviting you to engage in a life-or-death struggle. In every game, you select devious plots and challenge your opponents on the field of battle, through back alley intrigue, and in the political arena. Whether you play a against a single opponent, in a game known as a joust, or engage in a battle of three or more players, called a melee, winning challenges against your opponents is the way to victory.
In the game of thrones, knowledge is as powerful a weapon as Valyrian steel or dragonsfire. Without wielding swords, ambitious characters likeTyrion Lannister, Petyr Baelish, and Olenna Tyrell successfully navigate deadly political upheavals and wars. What you know can benefit you, and even cripple your opponents, but in the words of Petyr Baelish, “what we don’t know is what usually gets us killed.”
In Game of Thrones: The Iron Throne, which uses the game systems from Cosmic Encounter, you and your friends each command one of the Great Houses of Westeros, pitting iconic characters against each other in epic battles and schemes. Negotiate, bluff, forge alliances, threaten your rivals — use every tool at your disposal to spread your influence, establish supremacy, and claim the ultimate prize: the Iron Throne!
