Soon you will be able to battle Starks vs. Lannister on the table as you try to lead your favourite characters to victory.
I have been looking forward to this ever since we had the pleasure of playing the game at CMON Expo this year. In a collaboration with George R. R. Martin and Dark Sword Miniatures, they’ve created some really beautiful, one piece miniatures.
There’s your standard fodder characters or Combat Units, for mixing it up in battle, plus your special characters. These are recognizable warriors that can help drive the plans of your house, while offering extra bonuses to the units they are with.
And then there’s one more type of character. These are the Non-Combat Units. These characters come into play in the Tactics portion of play. You can try to influence things going on in the game through the use of your powerful, recognizable character.
These characters also bring extra cards with them for your Tactics Deck.
This is probably my favorite part of the game. You try your hardest to tactically maneuver your units to your advantage on the table, and just when you’ve got the enemy exactly where you want them…they produce a card from their tactics deck that foils your carefully crafted plan!
The tactics cards offer all sorts of twists and turns. There’s things to be played to strengthen your efforts in an attack, there are things to minimize the effectiveness of the enemy’s attack and all sorts of other shenanigans.
I think my favorite answer to all the questions asked about what else/who else we’ll see in the game moving forward was, “If it happened in the books, it’s fair game.”
And naturally there is a Kickstarter Exclusive mini, The High Seneschal!
Now you just need to decide which side of this massive war you’re going to be fighting on.
Will you be joining the fight for the iron throne?
