Based on the best-selling A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones is an epic board game in which it will take more than military might to win. Will you take power through force, use honeyed words to coerce your way onto the throne, or rally the townsfolk to your side? Through strategic planning, masterful diplomacy, and clever card play, spread your influence over Westeros!
The updated second edition brings a host of enhancements to your A Game of Thrones experience. It incorporates elements from previous expansions, including ports, garrisons, Wildling cards, and Siege engines, while introducing welcome new innovations. Convenient player screens will hide your underhanded dealings from prying eyes, while new Tides of Battle cards convey the uncertainty of war. This, along with updated graphics and a clarified ruleset, means the time has never been better to claim the Iron Throne.
Game of Thrones: The Board Game’s totally updated components will draw you into its world of sun-scorched sands, lush forests, and chilling northlands while bringing your favorite characters vibrantly to life. The board is masterfully rendered to resemble paint on distressed parchment, and the improved token and card art represents the finest A Song of Ice and Fire imagery in the industry. Finally, attractive marbled plastic figures, shaped as footmen, knights, ships, and siege engines, display your military might to the realm while contributing to the game’s high-quality aesthetic.
At the end of the tenth round, the player who controls the most areas containing castles or strongholds, having brought enough of Westeros under his control, is crowned winner and ascends to the Iron Throne as undisputed ruler of Westeros. Can you gain dominance over your enemies, or will you bend the knee to a false king? The time has come to defend your claim!
