What this is: a CCG-type fantasy strategy game with some board-game-ish components to give a nice tactile feel to things. The goal: to accumulate 15 Power tokens (representing political clout) before any other player. Plays 2-6.

This game is beautiful; let's start with that declaration. The core set includes 4 pre-made decks for the Stark, Lannister, Targaryen, and Baratheon Houses; six grey plastic moulded pieces that represent various courtly positions like Crown Regent, Hand of the King, Master of Coin, etc.; really pretty Gold Dragon coins and blue Power pieces; and a very nice, durable board for the coins and power pieces that centers the field of play nicely.

Onto the gameplay: there are three different types of attacks or "challenges" that can occur - military, intrigue, and power (aka political). Each character is marked as able to participate in some (generally, not all) types of challenges, meaning that deploying a character that can handle Intrigue on a field full of Military and Power characters can lead to a broadening advantage.

Different types of Challenges yield different results: successful military challenges let you kill off the defending player's characters, intrigues force the defending player to discard random cards from hand, and power challenges let you poach Power points from your foe. Intrigues are probably the least direct in achieving victory - holding the lead in in-play characters gives you Power points late in the turn, and Power challenges directly grab them for your side - making Intrigues sort of the "Dishonor"/bad guys strategy.

Finally, a very neat gimmick is the Plot Deck - reminiscent of the old Middle Earth CCG's long-events, i.e.

I've played a few games of Magic over the years, it's a fun game. What turned me off about it is the fact that you have to spend a good deal of cash on cards to come up with a competitive deck. The system is similar to baseball cards, you have to buy a lot of random booster packs in hopes of gaining a decent card. Any more there are online sites that offer singles, but they can be ridiculously expensive.

The system in this game is quite different, and I like it. You don't buy boosters, you buy monthly chapter packs, and you know exactly what comes in each pack. Unlike Magic, this game doesn't reward the person who spent the most money on their deck or bought the most boosters. Ten bucks gets you a chapter pack containing 60 cards. There are also a few of 110 or 165 card packs available that focus on one house for around $20. That being said, this game is by no means free. I have a few different decks which I would consider competitive (not on a national level or anything, but good solid decks), and I have sunk around $140 into the game. That may sound like a lot, but ask a person who plays in Magic tournaments how much money they've spent on the game. The answer will probably amaze you.

Other than the cost factor, this game is a good time. I have a number of friends who meet regularly to play board and card games, and this has become a favorite of ours. It's engaging, tactical, and is complex enough to keep us interested in the game long term.

I recently purchased this game to give it a try on our weekly game night. Our game night consists of 4-6 guys playing things like Axis and Allies, Magic: The Gathering, Risk, Stratego, or just Super Smash Bros, and we all got into the new Game of Thrones HBO series, and some of us got into the books.

So when an Amazon search of "A game of thrones" brought up this LCG I gave it a shot. For under $30 it seemed like a worthwhile set since it comes with enough for 4 players right out the box.

The details of the set have been covered in other reviews so I'll skip that. My set however came missing the "Stark" deck. Undaunted I emailed Fantasy Flight Games and they sent me the Stark deck right away, I had it in 3 days from noticing the deck was missing. All in all I can't complain about the missing deck because it instilled a great deal of faith in Fantasy Flight Games for their quick and ZERO hassle resolution of the issue.

Now we are all old school MTG players who no longer have the money or desire to keep up with the full time investment that can be MTG. The concept of an LCG rather than a CCG appeals to that greatly as it allows for casual and even competitive play with a much lower monetary investment.

Many of the conceptual elements of the game will be familiar to MTG players. But the addition of plotting, multiplayer titles, three types of conflict, and other developments make this, in our opinion anyway, a superior game for older and more casual players. No you do not have anywhere near the level of deck variety as MTG, but it is affordable, each part of the game is very strategic, the balance is impressive (Save the Lannisters are a bit overpowered), and the learning curve is only about 2-3 games.

I used to be a big Magic: The Gathering fan years ago, and am a fan of the books and TV series which inspired this game as well. I purchased this to play with friends who were also familiar with the source material, but not so much with LCGs (Living Card Games, for those not in the know)in general.

So far, I've found the game to be far more enjoyable than Magic if there are 3 or more people playing. The play waters down a bit with only 2 people but is still enjoyable, just not as deep or potentially intricate. The learning curve is a little steep for someone not familiar with LCGs, so if you've never played one, be prepared to grind through one or two 'rough drafts' of game play before you actually fall into its rhythm. GoT features a very cool, ever-shifting (in my opinion) political sub-mechanism which layers the game play well, and there are rules variants included to broaden that depth even further (note: the political aspect is unworkable for and is not used in 2 player games). The physical design of the game is above-par, and much of its artwork is beautiful if not heavily stylized. The box is not so sturdy, though. Mine lost a corner on day 2, but honestly, that's NOT a big deal, and so far is my only complaint.

This core set includes a full deck for 4 of the 6 houses (Lannister, Baratheon, Stark, and Targaryen) as well as House Cards (Which admittedly don't do much for this set) for Martell and Greyjoy. If you wish to play the latter 2 houses, you will need to buy the appropriate expansion packs for them. The decks come 'pre-tuned' and ready to play.
