|A Game of Thrones: The Board Game Second Edition | Published 23 November 2011|
“The whole of the realm denies it, brother. Old men deny it with their death rattle, and unborn children deny it in their mothers’ wombs. They deny it in Dorne and they deny it on the Wall. No one wants you for their king... You may well have the better claim, but I have the larger army.”
- Renly Baratheon

How will you extend your reach and gain control over Westeros?
An Enticing New Edition of a Classic Game
The second edition of A Game of Thrones: The Board Game has been completely updated with new components. The beautiful new game board resembles a hand-painted map, and tokens and game cards feature masterful imagery. The game also includes 138 attractive plastic figures that represent your footmen, knights, ships, and siege engines.
Besides the marvelous components, A Game of Thrones: The Board Game Second Edition features enhancements to the original game, incorporating elements from previous expansions into the game. Garrisons, siege engines, and ports are all included in this version. Several new elements have been added as well. The Tides of Battle cards enhance the risks and uncertainty of combat. Additionally, player screens keep your plans and schemes secret from your rivals.
Controlling the Seven Kingdoms
A Game of Thrones: The Board Game Second Edition develops over three phases. In the Westeros phase, players draw cards and random events and game procedures are resolved. During the Planning phase, players place their Order tokens on their available units, preparing them to execute your orders. In the Action phase, the Order tokens are resolved and forces clash.
To win, you must be the first House to control seven regions containing Castles or Strongholds. The game ends immediately if this condition is met. Otherwise, the game lasts ten rounds and the House with the highest position on the Victory track wins the game.
It takes guile, sweat, and sacrifice to dominate your enemies and gain control of the Iron Throne. Do you have the determination to complete the task? Find out in A Game of Thrones: The Board Game Second Edition, on sale now. March to your retailer to get your copy, and let the game begin.
Based on the best-selling novel series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin, A Game of Thrones: The Board Game Second Edition lets 3-6 players take control of the great houses of Westeros in an epic struggle to claim the Iron Throne.
played it for 3 weeks i na row now. 4 player is a little tough on placement.
Just received this as a Christmas gift and I am amazed at the production quality, I have played my first game, a three-sider, and to use the word intriguing would be an understatement. This is an excellent game.
Game has been ordered, can't wait hold it in my hands :D
Nice one, trailer looks nice. Especially because you don't need the additional Martell board anymore, and the whole design looks streamlined.
But just as a side note on the trailer: it's "When you play the game of thrones, you WIN or you die." That's important for us hardliners...
It's a fantastic game!
i want to try it.
Nice, Banners of War and GoT right next to each other!
