Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Journey to Oldtown, the second Chapter Pack in the Flight of Crows cycle for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game!

Little is certain in the world of A Song of Ice and Fire. Lives are ended with a stroke of steel and mighty strongholds are brought crumbling down into ruin by sieging armies.

And yet, a dream—of power, or wealth, or love—may be all that keeps the players of the game of thrones moving forward. Now, you can pursue some of your own dreams with the newest Chapter Pack for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game.

Journey to Oldtown, like The Archmaester’s Key before it, focuses on amplifying the major themes of the game’s fourth cycle. While it continues to follow A Feast for Crows, this cycle brings new strength to the bestow keyword and provides incentives for the factions to forge alliances and band together. Along the way, you’ll encounter a host of iconic characters and locations entering the game, including The House of Black and White, Thoros of Myr, a new version of Arianne Martell, and a lord of House Botley, Tris Botley.
