Varys smiled apologetically. “I will not keep you long, my lord. There are things you must know. You are the King's Hand, and the king is a fool.” The eunuch's cloying tones were gone; now his voice was thin and sharp as a whip. “Your friend, I know, yet a fool nonetheless… and doomed, unless you save him. Today was a near thing. They had hoped to kill him during the melee.”
    For a moment Ned was speechless with shock. “Who?”
    Varys sipped his wine. “If I truly need to tell you that, you are a bigger fool than Robert and I am on the wrong side.”
    “The Lannisters,” Ned said.

   –George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

The third Chapter Pack in the A Tale of Champions Cycle for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game, On Dangerous Grounds introduces new locations for each house that expand the game’s battlefields. While enemies hover on all sides, On Dangerous Grounds adds cards that promote the cycle’s new Melee keyword and create dynamic player interactions in the game’s melee format. It also advances the cycle’s focus on the game’s unique lords, ladies, knights, and other personalities with new Ladies and a pair of new plots that can drastically alter the balance of power between the houses.

Clarity in battle

In A Game of Thrones: The Card Game, you must always remain on your guard. Your enemies launch their schemes on multiple, simultaneous fronts, harrying you with military forces, working their intrigues in the shadows, and working to turn powerful lords and ladies against you. You must tread carefully. A moment’s lapse of attention could prove your undoing.

Still, there are some individuals who thrive in the confusion of layered intrigues and mass battles. They retain crystalline focus of all that transpires around them. The new Melee keyword introduced in A Tale of Champions allows such characters to use their opponents’ confusion against them in the chaos of combat, and any character with the Melee keyword gains one Strength for each character opposing him in a challenge.

Several cards in On Dangerous Grounds have the Melee keyword or can bestow it upon your characters, including Champion’s Favor (On Dangerous Grounds, 58). This low-cost, neutral attachment can be played during Setup, meaning it’s never a dead draw and can help you win early challenges against teams of lesser characters. Your powerful characters can charge out of the gates, swords swinging, and ride through any number of weak characters, each of whom only fuels your thirst for glory.

You win or you die

In A Game of Thrones: The Card Game, you dance with death and glory at every step. You’ll need sharp focus and nerves of steel to survive while challengers come at you from every side. On Dangerous Grounds offers exciting new means to outwit your foes.

Head to your local retailer today to pick up your copy of On Dangerous Grounds, or order it online from our webstore.
