This has replaced Twilight Imperium as our go-to long strategy game

I really like this game - it has a strong theme, great production (I love the little coloured lacquer pieces) and is a good price considering its size and what you get.

My group finds it to be snappier than Twilight Imperium which was our previous day-long strategy game. It can run to about 6 hours (so it is a bit snappier than TI) with the full player count but I don't find it drags too badly. You can always be doing something like discussing the current battle with a neighbour or something.

One thing I really like is that it doesn't have any dice component - the battles are all done on who can bring to bear the highest strength. If you do want an element of chance they include an optional module called Tides of Battle which works quite nicely.

I would caution that the game does not work quite as well with low player counts of 3 or 4. That being said, if you are prepared to shell out for the recent Mother of Dragons expansion, that fixes this issue and brings a lot of other improvements besides.

I would recommend this game to anyone who likes longer strategy games like TI or Axis and Allies, or to any die hard Game of Thrones fans because it really captures its theme well!

Great enhances the base game

Would never play the base game without this expansion. It makes lower player counts much much better as well!

Cross the Narrow Sea with the Mother of Dragons expansion for A Game of Thrones: The Board Game! Clawing their way into power, this expansion includes a side board of the Free Cities of Essos and an overlay of the Eyrie, as well as new characters and mechanics to bring House Targaryen and House Arryn into the fray. As you make your claim to the Iron Throne, you can call other Houses to your cause with the new vassal mechanic, or even ask for aid from the Iron Bank of Braavos. But be cautious, for the Iron Bank will have its due, and if your campaign proves to be a poor investment, the money lenders' retribution will be swift.
