    Has anyone ever played the GOT Board game?

    I bought it a long time ago, but never got a group to play it - it's pretty intimidating when setting it up and going through the rules book but once you get going it makes sense and it is a lot of fun.



    Finally got a game together the other night and it is a lot of fun, like Risk on crack. If you are into that sort of thing I recommend giving it a try.

    My friend found a website, thronemaster, when you can play it on-line either live or a slow game.

    Does anyone play on there, I'm just starting but would be nice if we could get a TMB game going.

    I own it. Only played it about 4-5 times. It does say 3-6 players but it's much much better with 6. That said it's really entertaining as there's a whole bunch of strategies to win. Reminds me of Catan meets Risk with side games/bidding.

    I used to play it all the time, but it's hard to find people willing to dedicate that much time into a board game. I really like it though

    I still haven't broken out my Game of Thrones Risk game. I need to get some people over to the house to play it.

    Game is amazing, my wife and I play an alt 2 player version, we love it

    They also have 2 alternate decks, the DwD version is pretty sweet, has Jon in it under Baratheon.

    Suppose as Stannis was at the wall while he's LC, he's the 3 and his ability is changing the wildling token up or down.

    Mance is the 0; his ability is to take the current wildling token as his final combat strength, so he and Jon are nice tandem for smaller battles

    I'm working on a write up for my 2 player version, actually have a couple of them, will post once finished. But i write about as quickly as GRRM so...

    In my latest we use all 6 houses, 2 of which are ally's and you get to place 2 of their support tokens, but their army's are all stationary. Wish I had more time to play and/or my wife would just take her turns more quickly. Takes her like 20 minutes to play her tokens... always say i love you babe but holy fuck...

    I'd like to see your write up when it's done. Is I'm sure it's not as fun, but I can seldom get enough people to play the game

    Played 4 times in the last 3 weeks. Even with everyone knowing their shit the games are at least 2 hours long. Super fun though
