Product Description

From the Manufacturer

King Robert Baratheon is dead, and the seven kingdoms brace for war. House Lannister, whose daughter Cersei was Robert's queen, claims the throne for her young son Joffery. From the Dragonstone Isle, Stannis Baratheon knows that Robert was not the true father of Joffrey, and rightfully demands the throne for himself. One the Oron Isles, House Greyjoy is about to embark on a second rebellion, but this time with a much grander goal. In the north, House Stark gathers its strength to defend what is right, and in the south the wealthy House Tyrell harbors an old ambition to sit on the Iron Throne. As armies gather and ravens fly, a clash of kings is inevitable. Based on the best-selling novel series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin, the A Game of Thrones board games by Fantasy Flight Games lets players take control of one of the great Houses of Westeros and embark on a epic struggle to claim the Iron Throne. Immerse yourself in a game of clever planning, careful allocation of power, diplomacy, and the exciting flavor of a Song of Ice and Fire. Along with the games board and rulebook, there are over 370 game pieces included.

Product Description

With this fantastic board game, players can enter the world of George R. R. Martin's best-selling A Song of Ice and Fire fantasy series and take control of one of the great houses of Westeros. Using warfare, diplomacy, and treachery, players vie for control of the Seven Kingdoms.

A Game of Thrones is by far the most balanced strategy boardgame I have ever played.
JoR
These cards are selected by the players in the conflict and will decide the total combat effectiveness and total casualties in the conflict.
Dhampire
All in all it takes one game to fully comprehend the game and it's workings and after that things go much smoother as exsperiance grows.

As an experienced gamer who has tried out a wide range of strategy-oriented products, I have found the Game of Thrones to be an especially strong one (which is fairly surprising given that it was not designed as a stand-alone product but instead grows out of a series of genre novels). It is a nice game in all of the superficial ways: gorgeous board, sturdy and attractive pieces, strong box in a convenient size to add to shelf and with attractive artwork that would make you proud to have it there. But what especially impressed me is the overall unity of the design.

Most niche board games come with extremely thick manuals filled with idiosyncratic rules to govern every situation. They may be enjoyable, but they take forever to learn and you generally cannot get non-gamers to invest the time. We feared this game would be the same, but I sat down with my wife, kids, and a family friend so that we could walk through the manual and we quickly realized that the rules were especially consistent and logical. Even my 12-year-old daughter picked them up quickly.

If you're looking for a comparison, I'd say that among the traditional war games this one most closely resembles Diplomacy, and anyone who has played Diplomacy will find the rules particularly comfortable to learn. The action choices are similar, and determined in advance in a similar fashion. Randomness plays little role in battle outcomes. And, like Diplomacy, the game even permits the addition of a negotiation session as players make non-binding deals with one other.

But don't take these comparisons too far. This isn't Diplomacy with a new thematic overlay.

The wonder of this game is matched only by it's complexity. To compare it's similarites with Risk, the only other strategy board game I have played, is to say they both have armies. The differences then take flight with an innovative battle system which involves no luck only strategy, ships to give a whole new element to consider with the transport and aid they offer, a system of bidding for three seperate offices which greatly affect the players ablities to operate on the field of battle. Consider before purchusing the depth of the game, as not only dose it take time to memorize the rules but the game itself takes time to set up with its many pieces. Yet there is no board game I have ever played that rewards skill rather than chance the way this one dose. Simple games are fun to pass the time, but to play A Game Of Thrones is a rich and rewarding exsperiance. All in all it takes one game to fully comprehend the game and it's workings and after that things go much smoother as exsperiance grows. To me worth every cent.

This is a great game. If you like games of strategy with a great story behind it, this is the game for you. The game doesn't require that you have read the books though. If you've read the books then you'd probably agree with me that this board game really brings out the best of the books. It's a very well designed game. Honestly this game is very balanced and it's hard for one player to run away with it. It's fun. A lot of fun. And yes... Winter is coming...

This game is the definition of strategy game. Gone is the dice mechanic of Risk and having one guy in Indonesia defending Australia from the invading horde. Gone is the marches across entire continents with improbably large forces from Asia. This set speedily reduces the diplomatic dealings of Diplomacy while still retaining the elements of mystery and subterfuge. This game has ruined me for playing Risk and Diplomacy and has replaced them both on my game shelf.

This game is for five players (six with the Clash of Kings expansion) set in the world of the novels, Westeros, and deals with five of the royal houses seeking the throne after the death of Robert Barratheon. The houses are; Greyjoy, Stark, Barratheon (Stanis), Tyrell, and Lannister. Scattered about the continent, each house is tasked to capture and sway other feifs to their cause, through conflict if needed.

Actions are determined by tokens that are placed face down on the board with your armies. You can try to ally and bargain but, never, are you allowed to reveal your marker until it is time to flip them all. Never are you allowed to be 100% sure of your alliance! Once all tokens are down, they are revealed and resolution takes place by order of influence within the court of Westeros. Army size is regulated by supply limits in areas taken and held, the ability to recruit more soldiers limited by the tides of the Westeros Deck draw at the start of each turn. This one random action in an otherwise planned game forces players to carefully consider conflicts since (as it is really) casualties are hard to replace with more trained soldiers.

This game is alot of fun that I think everyone can enjoy, even if they have never read the books. In the game you put down orders to your troops and then everyone reveals what they are doing at the same time, so that way your alliances and startegies are always in question a little. "Is he gonna attack me, if he does I wont be prepared cuz im taxing the people this turn..." stuff like that. Its alot of fun but trying to get four or five people together to play is tough. Its a really fun game, good buy!!
