Well it’s one of the best works of fantasy ever written. It is also coming soon into an original HBO series. SO when I saw a starter box set of A Game of Thrones for sale at Neutral Grounds, I plopped PHP 1,800.00 for the deck.
The rules are overwhelming. You don’t need to be familiar with the series to play nor understand the mechanics, but the artwork and familiarity to the backstory add the much appreciated visualization to the land of Westeros. I won’t discuss the rules — let Board Game Geek do it. And the Wikipedia page.
As for me .. well, photos!
There are some odd inconsistencies with character descriptions from the book vis a vis the artists depiction. Special note goes to Brienne of Tarth, Lord Varys Tyrion Lannister, and The Hound as the illustrations give more credit to enhancing their physical beauty than the actual description in the books. Nonetheless, a card game fit for 4 players.
