Sept 10, 2017

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. In such a dangerous and changeable landscape, it seems impossible that something as fragile as a dream could long survive. 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.

August 21, 2017

The north reels in the gory aftermath of the Red Wedding. In a single day and night of misfortune, House Stark is left leaderless—usurped by the treachery of House Frey and House Bolton. Yet the Red Wedding was not the only dire plot that now grows to fruition in Westeros. For fifteen years, House Martell has plotted vengeance for the murder of Elia and her children—and with Oberyn Martell in King’s Landing, their chance for justice may have arrived. Now you have your chance to join these schemes and many others: Oberyn’s Revenge  is now available from Fantasy Flight Games for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game!

In keeping with the key themes of the Blood and Gold cycle, Oberyn’s Revenge continues to offer support for the bestow keyword, as well as powerful new economy cards and new ways to spend your gold. You’ve had the chance to read Ryan Jones’ writing about his champion card—The Iron Bank Will Have Its Due. Now, prepare to enact your own plots and schemes as you battle to seize the Iron Throne!

The Wars to Come Expansion for The Iron Throne Board Game Available Now

July 11, 2017

The Wars to Come expansion for The Iron Throne board game is now available at retailers from Fantasy Flight Games.

With its two new Houses and twenty-five game-changing allies, The Wars to Come brings more players, more intrigues, and more betrayals to your battles for the Seven Kingdoms.

Based on HBO’s award-winning Game of Thrones television series, The Iron Throne challenges you to outwit and outmaneuver your rivals. You send your leaders to meet each other on the field of battle, you make alliances with other Houses, and you break those alliances. In the end, there’s only one thing that matters—your place atop the Iron Throne.

Now, with the addition of House Greyjoy and House Martell, The Wars to Come allows you to enjoy these contests with as many as seven players. But it’s not just the size of the game that changes; you’ll find that these Houses also permit more scheming, more uses for your hostages, more aggression, more trickery, and more of all the carefully constructed chaos that makes both the game and the HBO series so fantastically absorbing.

A Game of Thrones Catan Announced by Fantasy Flight Games

July 4th, 2017

Fantasy Flight Games is excited to announce A Game of Thrones Catan: Brotherhood of the Watch, a standalone game of resource gathering and trading based on the classic Settlers of Catan. The battle to defend the Realms of Man begins in this new strategic game grounded in the engrossing world of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fireseries and adapted for Catan by Klaus and Bejamin Teuber.

The Brothers of the Night’s Watch seek a new leader from among their ranks. Jeor Mormont wishes to promote one who can improve the infrastructure of the Gift, the bountiful and undeveloped area south of the Wall bestowed to the Watch by the Starks thousands of years ago. Drawing sustenance from the unforgiving landscape of the north offers enough challenges, but whomever takes up this task must also man and defend the Wall against the onslaught of Wildlings fighting their way into Westeros. Many brothers now compete to build, defend, and do what they can to protect Westeros, but only one shall rise above their brothers to become the new Lord Commander. But be wary—the north holds many dangers, and winter is coming.

House Stark bestowed the Gift to the Night’s Watch when the Order was first founded thousands of years ago. By right, this area belongs to the Watch to supply provisions to the stalwart brothers who guard Westeros from the north. In game, each of these areas supplies one of five resources: lumber, brick, wool, grain, and ore. The barren Ice Fields, however, produce nothing.

Players take on the role of Brothers of the Night’s Watch and use these resources to strengthen their hold on the north by building roads, settlements, and keeps; recruiting guards for their patrol; or buying Development Cards. Each of these acts bring players increased power and recognition through the awarding of victory points. The objective will be familiar to players of the original Catan—the first player to achieve ten victory points wins the game and becomes the new Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch.

But this is not as easy as it sounds; the area surrounding the Gift can be treacherous. Wildings from north of the Wall have crossed over, and follow their own rules of honor which often conflict with the laws of Westeros. One of their ranks, Tormund Giantsbane, does not respect the Watch’s claim to the land as he moves throughout the Gift, robbing resources from the Brothers sent to provide for their Order.

June 4th, 2017

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce The Brotherhood Without Banners, the sixth Chapter Pack in the Blood and Gold cycle for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game!

The tumult of the War of the Five Kings shook the foundations of Westeros, fracturing the peace that had endured since Greyjoy’s Rebellion. In this new war, the Great Houses were forced to choose sides, some supporting Renly or Stannis Baratheon, others lending aid to Robb Stark, Joffrey Baratheon, or Balon Greyjoy. Yet there are also those who fight for no king, but for the people. To some, they are no more than outlaws, but for others, these men and women are champions and heroes—true knights.

Take up arms with outlaws in The Brotherhood Without Banners, the sixth Chapter Pack of the Blood and Gold cycle! As the cycle draws to a climactic conclusion, you’ll have the chance to see the themes of the cycle more fully realized, with new economy cards and new support for the bestow keyword across all eight factions. Whether you’re serving the Night’s Watch with Donal Noye or leading the brotherhood with Beric Dondarrion, this expansion has plenty to offer, including a brand-new agenda inviting you to join the brotherhood without banners.

Guarding The Realm Available for Game of Thrones TCG

gt17_box_300

May 10th, 2017

Guarding the Realm, the second Chapter Pack in the Blood and Gold cycle for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game, is now available from Fantasy Flight Games!

Like the other packs of this cycle, Guarding the Realm follow the events of A Storm of Swords, bringing key characters like Melisandre and Wex Pyke of House Botley to the foreground. If you’re going to protect the realm, there’s always a price to pay… and with new economical options and the bestow keyword, it’s up to you whether you’ll pay in blood or in gold.

As the Great Houses of Westeros scheme and plot their enemies’ demise, the last scion of House Targaryen slowly travels west across the continent of Essos. Daenerys’s path leads her towards the Iron Throne and King’s Landing, but many obstacles remain before her—starting with the garish, opulent cities of Slaver’s Bay. Astapor, Yunkai, Meereen: these are cities that have stood since the days of Old Valyria, growing fat off their foul trade in human lives. But everything is about to change for the Ghiscari, and lead your faction on a new path with Guarding the Realm.

April 27th, 2017

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Oberyn’s Revenge, the fifth Chapter Pack in the Blood and Gold cycle for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game!

Many lives were lost in Robert Baratheon’s bloody rebellion. Some, such as Rhaegar Targaryen, died in honorable combat on the field of battle. Others, like Elia Martell, were brutally slain at the hands of the conquering Lannister forces. For fifteen years, House Martell has held its thirst for vengeance in check, waiting with the utmost patience. And although the Red Viper’s duel with Ser Gregor Clegane ends in tragedy for House Martell, it is also the catalyst that sets Doran Martell’s plots in motion…

Oberyn’s Revenge, the fifth Chapter Pack in the Blood and Gold cycle, continues the major themes of the cycle and invites you to play out some of the most iconic moments from A Storm of Swords. Even as dark events and schemes unfold around you, you can use your gold and the new bestow keyword to gain new levels of control over the game. As new versions of the Red Viper and Bran Stark enter the game alongside characters like Irri and Ser Garlan Tyrell, your vengeance is about to become more vicious than ever before.
