and Jens as we discuss the thematic title, A Game of Thrones: The Board Game (Second Edition). Is this the modern Diplomacy? What are the differences between the first and second editions? Do you hold your friends close, but your enemies closer? Does a knowledge of the books and HBO series enhance the game or disrupt it? All these questions and more are answered in this episode of The Long View.

As a bonus, Jens and Petur review the old classic game of Intrigue. A game of deceit, lies and backstabbing. Sense a pattern here? Check out the review!

Finally, I review two new games. First up is Lagoon: Land of Druids from Three Hares Games. The review can be found at the 1:27:30 mark of the episode. Find out what makes this game such a great example of a themed abstract. How can a game be both? Listen and find out!

Finally, I review the new game Bullfrogs from Thunderworks Games. Is this just the latest light filler, or is it something to hop and croak about? Check out the review which begins at the 1:48:40 mark of the episode.
