A Game Of Thrones: The Card Game 2nd Edition is a fantastic card game from Fantasy Flight and I’ve been playing it nearly every day for the past week! So, seeing a new Chapter Pack from the end of the first cycle has filled me with glee. Take a look at Calm Over Westeros…
In this pack we follow the story as Tyrion Lannister comes to the Eyrie while over the sea Khal Drogo is at the mercy of a practitioner of Blood Magic. The way in which these different packs tell the story of A Game Of Thrones has been great AND we get a whole bunch of awesome cards too.
The Starks are getting some brutal military power in the shape of Greatjon and his warband who gain extra strength for the amount of plots in your used pile (the more turns you play the stronger they become). We also mentioned the deadly blood magic practised by Mirri Maz Duur…
Her ability is great for picking out those characters that you think deserve to die very quickly indeed. Because of her strength of five she will be drawing in more expensive characters and can pick and choose if she wants to claim power, cards from the opponents hand or just kill them outright.
With her and the Plaza of Punishment (kills low strength characters) you have a potent combination for the Targaryens.
Have you been playing this game?
