I was a big fan of Game of Thrones Living Card Game (LCG) 1.0 and was heavily invested in that game. In all honesty though 1st edition had run its course with it extensive card catalogue, which made it difficult for new players, and broken game mechanics the game needed a complete re-boot. At first I was gutted that I would have to re-buy all the cards and start again as none of the 1st edition cards can be used in 2nd edition, but after seeing the new cards in 2nd edition I can see it's totally worth it! Of all the LCGs available Game of Thrones has always been my favourite.

The designers have done a fantastic job tightening up the mechanics of the game and making it simpler. Be under no illusion, this is a complicated game to play when you take into account all the rules and then each cards abilities, where those abilities fit within the turn structure etc. However, compared to 1st edition, this is now much more thought out. There is now a lot more focus on challenges, challenge based effects and playing the game rather than a card having super abilities that completely cripple an opponents decks ability to make challenges in the game!

I love the whole Game of Thrones lore and this game allows you to immerse yourself in eight different factions of the series. There are more characters than from just the TV series but you don't have to have read the books to appreciate the game. The factions included are Stark, Lannister, Baratheon, Targaryen, Greyjoy, Martell and new to second edition Tyrell and Nights Watch.

One of the biggest appeals for this game is deck building. Straight out of the core box you can make decks, most by allying two factions together to give you enough cards in a deck (e.g.

My my, this is a complex and cutthroat game. There's so much to keep track of but once you've had 1 or 2 games you know what to look out for and its ruddy good fun. We found if you try and work the game out from reading the instructions alone you may get confused but playing the first game slowly, openly and fairly whilst referring to the instructions as a group makes it a lot more straight forward.
My partner and I imagine it would take weeks of regular play to know the rules off the top of your head but (like another reviewer has said) that's half the fun, if that is your idea of fun. If not, maybe you'd enjoy Cards Against Humanity, Snakes & Ladders or something a bit simpler.
We had our first 4 player "melee" and it took about 2.5 hours to complete; 2 and a half hours of head rubbing, rule reading, back stabbing goodness.
True to the books rather than the series which makes it so much better than that HBO version.

The game itself has 8 different families and players combine 2 families (or Factions as they're called in the game) alongside some neutral cards to create their deck. Once you've had a game or two using the standard deck set ups the game encourages custom deck building.
Another great thing about this game is the amount of expansions it has.

I was afraid it will be one of these LCG games, were to get something from it you will be forced to spend gadzylions of pesos. Thankfully it is working perfectly even in basic set. Hours of planning and trying to kill these bloody Lanisters!

Brilliant game, was looking at his ages ago as I have played all Pokemon, Yugioh and more recently MTG in local hobby store events. I could never keep a high interest in MTG even though my mates travel all over the place playing, just wasn't my game. Already having a history of card games and a huge interest in the Game of Thrones world made this perfect, After looking at this game for ages I finally jumped in and bought 3 of these Core Sets which is highly recommended if you want to play at a local card shop or with a larger group. Was able to build a Night Watch Stark, Baratheon, and Targaryen decks without saying "damn I wish I had more of _______ card" which is why 3 core sets is recommended. Would highly recommend this to anyone that has an interest in either card games or game of thrones. Looking forward to taking my Nights Watch Stark deck to a Red Saturday event soon.

If you like Game of thrones and you like card games (of the more modern type such as MTG or NR) then this is a no brainer. I'd have to actually put this above netrunner as the best card game I've ever played. The mechanics are strong, fun and tactical and the way the card powers thematically work with the source material is astounding.

Amazing game. Worth buying at least 2 core sets if you want to play as a single house instead of mixing two. With two sets you can play a fairly balanced four player game too =)
