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.
Also just in general, this does require 6 players so beware.
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.

Fast bloody action, although not good for less than six players.Published 10 months ago by Jonathon Kent
the expansion makes the game much more reasonable. Has you jump right into the game. Has spoilers so if not up to date in show/books it will ruin some parts.Published 11 months ago by jzhehehdhueueuewuueygzhgsghsgqqwwjuuiuuuuuuiiiiiiiiiiiii8ii8ii88ii890àßdddddeujeuueueuuwueuwuuwuwuiwuwuwiiwiuwuwiwiwiiw
