King Robert Baratheon is dead, and the lands of Westeros brace for
In the second edition of A Game of Thrones: The Board Game, three to six
players take on the roles of the great Houses of the Seven Kingdoms of
Westeros, as they vie for control of the Iron Throne through the use of
diplomacy and warfare. 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!
In addition to featuring updated graphics and a clarified rule set, this
second edition of A Game of Thrones includes elements from the A Clash
of Kings and A Storm of Swords expansions, including ports, garrisons,
Wildling cards, and Siege engines, while introducing welcome new
innovations like player screens and Tides of Battle cards.
Tides of Battle cards are an optional mechanism that brings an element
of unpredictability to combat, representing erratic shifts in the
momentum of war due to factors such as weather, morale, and tactical
opportunity. During each combat, both players draw one Tides of Battle
card from a communal deck, and its value modifies the strength of his
chosen House card. What's more, such a card may also contain icons that
can affect the outcome of the battle, all of which delivers a new level
of intensity to your military engagements.
