Fantasy Flight Games have capitalised on the success of A Game of Thrones with a re-print of their Card Game for the franchise. This version of the game uses images from the TV show rather than artwork and is focused on the two player experience…
While the mechanics are more or less the same as the original Living Card Game the decks are pre-made and it’s focused completely on developing your strategy rather than drafting and creating your own decks.
This seems like it will be a good gateway into heading onto the main Living Card Game after you’ve had some experience with this current iteration. Of course this is going to play well as a stand-alone property too, getting picked up by people who are avid fans of the TV series.
The lower cost of entry into the ‘experience’ is certainly something that will appeal to a lot of people.
A Game of Thrones: The Card Game allows you to take control of one of the main houses in Westeros and through war, politics and subterfuge earn enough power to stake your claim on the Iron Throne.
Do you think you’ll be picking this up?
