Description Edit | History

This game gained a quick following after one of the major gaming conventions of 1999. It features several characters, represented on actual stickpin buttons, that each have a unique allowance of polyhedral dice. These dice endow each character with fairly unique combat abilities. Players roll the dice against each other and take their opponents' dice as casualties. The object of the game is take out the most die 'sides' during the combat. It's quite simple, quite inventive, and deeper than it would seem at first.

13 Game Of Thrones Buttons
I made these buttons using the images from the Fantasy Flight LCG and the stats from the basic button men. I obviously don't own the rights to use these images but they're posted all over BGG in other places and are simply being used for a bit of non-profit fun. If there's any problem then I'll happily take the file down immediately. Hope you enjoy!
