Admittedly, I haven't actually played the board game using this expansion yet. It REQUIRES 6 players (unlike the original rules that allow for as few as 3 players), and I haven't had an opportunity to have so many interested players in the same place at one time. However, I wanted to write this review to explain what exactly comes in the expansion for the price.

Overall, I think it's pricey for what you get. Basically it's just new character cards for each house, and some cards that tell/show you the new setup of the board and rules. However, I think it's still worth it for the refreshing taste it gives the original "A Game of Thrones 2nd Edition" board game.

The starting locations of armies are completely different. Apart from the new cards, this is the main difference in the expansion. Armies are spread across the board, meaning battles can, and likely will, occur on the 1st turn. There are also fewer turns per game than the original 10 rounds. I can't remember the exact number, though. This new layout of armies definitely freshens things up, as Greyjoy has a vast navy from the start, while Tyrell is stretched from their home all the way to the sea surrounding Baratheon's castle. The Lannisters control King's Landing from the start, and Baratheon has troops near Winterfell. Martell and Stark have armies slightly spreading from their original locations, but nothing too drastic.

The cards offer some new strategies, and shift the power from the original card set. The Stark cards are far more powerful than before, while House Greyjoy loses much of their advantage in the card arena. And, naturally, the positions on the influence tracks are different this time around.

If you want to freshen up "A Game of Thrones," and you have 6 players who are interested, I would definitely advise getting this expansion. It's expensive for what you get, but I think it's worth it if you can get people to play it.

I absolutely love this expansion set. It takes away the tedious opening moves that have little excitement and requires a bit of luck. It balances out the house cards and allows for combat right off the start. It also gives some house cards that have some incredible flavor text such as Walder Frey allowing you to change enemy support icons... red wedding anyone? All in all this is a must buy for anyone who loves the books or boardgame.

This one of the best strategy games ever. And this update allows you to move basically up to date to where the books are as you battle for the future of Westeros. If you like the Game of Thrones miniseries, books or the game of Risk this is for you.

If you have played the base game a couple of times and are looking for a new challenge then you really ought to pick this up (so long as you're playing with 6 people). The new house cards have a different look to them and a somewhat cheaper feel to them but they change the way the game is played drastically. One Greyjoy card even lets you look through the Westeros decks and choose the next card that will be played (spoilers it was a muster). Cards that are printed zeros can really be 5+ based on certain conditions and the Stark (actually Bolton now) house has some really interesting cards.

The reason for the 4/5 instead of 5/5 is once you first set up the game and look at the pieces it will strike you as super unbalanced. Greyjoy actually has all their ships basically already on the board and the Baratheons can get basically wiped out on the first turn if they're unlucky. If you look on Reddit people say you can win with any house but if you're the Lannisters (who get attacked even more in the expansion that before) or Baratheons you're gonna have to get a bit lucky.

While I have yet to get a full 6 people to try the alternate setup, these cards are very fun to play with!

This is a great example of how to add an expansion to a card/board game.

The balance and excitement brought by the new cards is great. It feels different enough from vanilla, with old strategies being obsolete and flat out wrong.

I'd recommend this to anyone who enjoys the bass game.

I expected more from this expansion. it is just another starting set to play, and it is a little unbalanced.

Better than the previous expansion, but I wish it added more to the base game beyond new cards.
