We've had Jason Walden on a few times in the past on our podcast:
2nd edition release: http://podcastoficeandfire.com/episode-128-ffg-affc-adwd-boa...

AFFC/ADWD release: http://podcastoficeandfire.com/episode-128-ffg-affc-adwd-boa...

Looks like he will be joining us again sometime in December. I'm taking submissions here and elsewhere for potential questions to ask him related to the board game.

Any plans for any other expansions or future versions that perhaps feature the factions coming in from the east? Waiting for the books to be finished?

Have you looked at any of the fan variants? Opinions?

Just gonna copy my response from Westeros.org:


I remain forever perplexed that the board game isn't discussed more here, it's such a great game. I'm really interested in the the future of it, are there thoughts on a third edition or what it might entail, are there plans for a Winds of Winter expansion. I'm not sure if this is something FF ever do, but it'd be great if they released official variants with their own play tested seal of approval, the official four player is notoriously imbalanced so maybe the 'rumble in the south' (Baratheon, Lannister, Tyrell, Martell with the north blocked off) and other variants could get looked at? The problem with fan made variants is an embarrassment of riches, there's just so many that every thread on BGG only garners a few replies, and there are as many tweaked rules as there are people who play them. So it'd be good to get an official list of alternate ways to play.

Also, seeing as GRRM isn't producing book titles quick enough to supply them with expansions, I'd love to see a Roberts Rebellion card expansion with Aerys II playing out of Kings Landing, Jon Arryn in the Vale, a youthful Robert from Storms End, it'd be a great opportunity to dig out some older characters; Rhaegar, Arthur Dayne, maybe (fudging the timing slightly) Rickard and Brandon?

ETA: I also wonder if the books release affects them: are they even allowed to release a WoW expansion if the books not out?

Is the Greyjoy-Lannister imbalance a feature or a bug? devil

1. Over the years, have FFG read the feedback on the balance between houses? If so, any revisions possible (like the Runewars revised edition fixed a few problems with game's balance and ending).
2. Tyrell + Greyjoy are sooo gampered by having no star orders, and reliant on fickle fate to reveal a Clash of Kings card.
But what if that doesn't come up for most or all the game (due to that dratted Winter is coming, shuffle the deck card!!)
So has the game design given tyrell or greyjoy strategies to work through this problem?
Especially Tyrell, since Greyjoy at least gets a good carddeck + valeriam sword.
3. Any chance of 3rd expansion, adding Danaerys/targerryan as a faction?

Cheers!
