A Game of Thrones: The Card Game

Postby Redav » Monday May 25th, 2015 2:39am

Has anyone played A Game of Thrones: The Card Game? We have been thinking about getting a card game like Thunderstone but as someone in the family already has it and because we love ASoIaF and GoT we thought we'd look into this. I've also found that there's a 2nd edition out or coming out this year and would happily wait for it if it streamlines things.

It looks like there's a lot to it;

2014 Review of LCG (2008 version)

Second Edition news - sounds like it'll be available relatively soon

More detail about the Second Edition

Clearly sounds deep which as the reviewer says, could be it's problem but it still sounds interesting.

Bah! If it was really a Game of Thrones card game then the rules would be predictable.

1. The coolest characters die immediately after you get them and you can never use these cards again.

2. If a crappy character is killed (Jothrey) then an equally crappy character will take it's place (Tommen).

3. Cerci and Sansa cannot be killed, and once drawn must remain in your hand and alienate your coolest cards (forcing you to discard one per turn of your oponent's choosing)

4. John Snow trumps everything. He's not Ned's bastard son, he is his nephew, and a Barathion or Targarian and either way, he will be king!

5. It must be played in the nude.

Any others I'm forgetting?

Yeah, dwarves get shat on regardless of how much good they've done.

One of those previews has a video about game play;

A Game of Thrones: The Card Game Second Edition Tutorial

And this mob have some videos based on the previews;

Team Covenant

It's a bit more involved than I expected but I wasn't expecting something simple.
