When you play A Game of Thrones the board game, you win or you get mad at your friend who beat you. Right now the 2nd edition of the board game is on sale for $27.99 on Amazon. That's the lowest price we've ever seen for a game that normally sells around $48 or more. It hasn't even dropped below $40 in more than a year.
This is a game for three to six players. Each player takes control of one of the Great Houses of Westeros. Names you'll be familiar with like the Lannisters or Starks. From there you set out on an epic campaign to capture as many strongholds and castles as you can over the course of ten rounds. Each House offers an assymetrical experience, which means you have a lot of replay value with this since you can switch the House you play. One game takes about three hours to play through, so it's definitely not a short experience. And trying to be the one sitting on the Iron Throne really shouldn't be quick and easy.
The second edition of the game features a lot of good changes. It incorporates elements from past expansions without the need for anyhting new. It also has updated art and a streamlined rulebook that's easier for everyone to learn. You'll also see new enhancements like the Tides of Battle cards and player screens to stop prying eyes. Find a lot of your favorite characters from the books in those cards, too.
