Hi,

we played a game a week ago and we randomly shuffled the Westeros card for all 3 decks. The first "Production" was uncovered on turn 4 while the first westeros card to change the power order appeared in turn 7...

Did we made a mistake or did we just have really bad luck?

thanks!

In first Edition this was quite common. However in second edition you would have to be extremely unlucky to get that result, unless of course those people who were allowed a choice about what happens also considered it desirable to make it happen.

You did shuffle each deck by itself and drew one from each every round, right?

If you shuffled them into three separate decks, then you were just unlucky. If you shuffled them all into one deck, then you made a mistake!



EDIT: ninjaed!

EDIT AGAIN: By someone who claims to be not a ninja...

Everything right.

If it bothers you, then you may try a small variant with a bit less random deck.
e.g. shuffle 4 cards (supply, muster, choose, nothing), maybe even 3 without "nothing" card, put it on Winter is Coming (reshuffle) and remaining 5 below. In that way you are sure that there will be at least one mustering and supply in 5 rounds.

Thank you all! Yea we shuffled in 3 decks, just the card that makes you shuffle all again kept coming and coming, which was especially sad for the Tyrell player which couldnt change his position on the power tracks... we all had all power token of the game in hand.

I think this is really unfortunate, I will definetely try the variant with "less random deck" you suggested Radziol, thnaks
