“Valar morghulis,” Arya repeated. It wasn’t hard […] Across the yard, she could hear men dying.
–George R.R. Martin, A Clash of Kings
The time has come to follow the battles and intrigues of A Game of Thrones: The Card Game to the Eastern lands of Essos Beyond the Narrow Sea. Valar Morghulis is now available at your local retailer and online through our webstore!
All men must die. But some deaths are more costly than others.
While the Great Houses of Westeros play their game of thrones, Valar Morghulis adds sixty new cards to the game (three copies each of twenty different cards) that explore the deadliest aspects of Essos and its intrigues. From The Kindly Man (Valar Morghulis, 1) and Magister Illyrio (Valar Morghulis, 16) to Thirst for Vengeance (Valar Morghulis, 12) and Maester Kerwin (Valar Morghulis, 11), these cards explore the roles of the deadliest and most vengeful players, as well as the game’s deadly impact on the Great Houses.
The Calm Amid the Storm
Not all is death and despair among the new cards of Valar Morghulis. As the Great Houses extend their machinations to the Free Cities of Essos, new players take the stage.
House Baratheon gains the services of a powerful Ally known not for his prowess in battle, but his thoughtfulness, kindness, education, and well-trained hawks. The heir to Highgarden, Willas Tyrell (Valar Morghulis, 9) was crippled in a joust by Prince Oberyn Martell but remains a desirable candidate for marriage for all those seeking to ally their Houses to the wealth and power of the Tyrells.
In A Game of Thrones: The Card Game, Willas Tyrell shares stats and abilities that represent his position of power and the uncertainty of his involvement. His Ally trait makes him vulnerable to removal, as does his two Strength. Still, he presents Baratheon players the means to deal with some of the game’s greatest schemers. While he’s participating in a challenge, participating Lannister and Martell characters do not count their Strength. This gives Baratheon players the means to push Intrigue or Power challenges through Lannister and Martell, or to win them on defense, meaning that Baratheon decks might gain some much-welcomed respite from the storm of Intrigue challenges launched against them!
Death Comes for Us All
