Description Edit | History

Game description from the publisher:

King Robert Baratheon is dead, and the lands of Westeros brace for battle.

In the second edition of A Game of Thrones: The Board Game, three to six players take on the roles of the great Houses of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, as they vie for control of the Iron Throne through the use of diplomacy and warfare. Based on the best-selling A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones is an epic board game in which it will take more than military might to win. Will you take power through force, use honeyed words to coerce your way onto the throne, or rally the townsfolk to your side? Through strategic planning, masterful diplomacy, and clever card play, spread your influence over Westeros!

To begin the game, each player receives an army of Footman, Knight, Siege Engine, and Ship units, as well as a set of Order tokens and other necessary components. Each player also receives a deck of unique House Cards, which are used as leaders in battles against rival Houses.

Each round in the game is made up of three phases: the Westeros Phase, the Planning Phase, and the Action Phase. The Westeros Phase represents special events and day-to-day activities in Westeros. There are three different Westeros Decks, and each denotes a different global action, potentially affecting all players.

The Planning Phase is perhaps the most important. Here you secretly assign orders to all of your units by placing one order token face down on each area you control that contains at least one unit (Knight, Footman, Ship, or Siege Engine). This portion of the game emphasizes diplomacy and deduction. Can you trust the alliance that you made? Will you betray your ally and march upon him? Players may make promises to each other (for aid or peace, for example), but these promises are never binding. The result is tense and compelling negotiations, often ending in backstabbing worthy of Westeros!

During the Action Phase, the orders are resolved and battle is entered! When armies meet in combat, they secretly choose one of their House cards to add strength to the battle. Finally, the Houses can consolidate their power in the areas they control and use that power in future turns to influence their position in the court of the Iron Throne and to stand against the wildling Hordes.

In addition to featuring updated graphics and a clarified ruleset, this second edition of A Game of Thrones includes elements from the A Clash of Kings and A Storm of Swords expansions, including ports, garrisons, Wildling cards, and Siege engines, while introducing welcome new innovations like player screens and Tides of Battle cards.

Tides of Battle cards are an optional mechanism that brings an element of unpredictability to combat, representing erratic shifts in the momentum of war due to factors such as weather, morale, and tactical opportunity. During each combat, both players draw one Tides of Battle card from a communal deck, and its value modifies the strength of his chosen House card. What's more, such a card may also contain icons that can affect the outcome of the battle...all of which delivers a new level of intensity to your military engagements.

6 A Game of Thrones: The Board Game (2nd ed) -- illustrated tutorial and cheat sheet [Errors fixed by Batz]
I fixed two small errors noted in the comments of the original file page. https://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/77536/game-thrones-board-game-2nd-ed-illustrated-tutoria I had to use some PDF cut and paste hacks so the fonts look a bit weird and the grammar is not ideal. But at least it works! All credit to the original author (ghopper21) who did a great job. As it has been 3 years since his last input to the file I guess is not going to update it. If he ever does I will take this down.

15 Interactive Beginner's Reference
v1.2 (printable) There is a lot of information for beginners to the game to learn. This reference is designed to ease that burden (and on the person constantly reading and verifying rules) by displaying the relevant rules at the right time - in context, if you like. The idea is that this PDF can be displayed on the game table using a tablet (possibly a phone but the text may be too small) in full screen mode. The primary parts are the Phase and Combat sequences, but there are various other information pages that can be jumped to quickly using the Contents, to which there is a link on every page. In this way, players can read the relevant rules themselves if they feel they need to. Any suggestions for improvement will be welcome. v1.2 changes: - Added more starting details (Wildling...
4 A Game of Thrones for fewer than 6 players
This is not my file. Knaken originally posted it here: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/738141/play-any-house-3-4-and-5-players The link in his thread has since gone dead and some people in that thread wanted it uploaded to the files section of BGG. Since I had it downloaded to my phone, I thought I would upload it to the geek so that others could have access to the maps. Personally, I have played a few variations off this pdf, and they are balanced enough for casual play. Hard core players will still want to play with 6 players. These maps don't really change too many of the lesser player imbalance issues, they just move them around and provide extra variety for lower player counts.

4 Gra o Tron dla 9 osób PL, Print & Play
Zamieszczony tutaj projekt miał na celu spolszczenie stworzonej przez „Pypoka” 9 osobowej wersji Gry o Tron pt „Winds of Winter”. Jak się okazało ww autor nie posiadał już oryginalnych plików na których można było by łatwo takie zmiany przeprowadzić. W rezultacie zacząłem tworzyć elementy od podstaw, używając gimpa i całej masy innych grafik. W rezultacie bardzo niewielka część Pykok'owej pracy przetrwała w sposób nie zmieniony. Chciałbym jednocześnie zaznaczyć, że praktycznie żadne zdjęcia czy rysunki nie są mojego autorstwa. Jedynie karty są w znaczącym stopniu stworzone przeze mnie. Cała reszta to żmudna obróbka setek różnych grafik ze sobą tak aby wyglądało to przyzwoicie. Wszystkie pliki ze względu na rozmiary znacznie przekraczające mozliwości BGG znajdują się pod tym adresem:...

5 Complete House Card Manifest (including FfC/DwD)
This house card manifest includes all cards from the Second Edition of A Game of Thrones: The Board Game, including the A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons expansions. By putting all the cards on one page you can condense the number of materials stored in your box for when you play with people that don't know the cards very well... (provided they bring their reading glasses). The file is intended to be printed on US Letter size 8.5"x11" paper. The page can be easily folded in half and/or laminated to put the Dance with Dragons expansion on the back and save table space.
