Hi guys,
I have a question about some kind of a diplomacy problem in "a game of thrones"...
If I am the King on the highest position in the Iron Throne track, and I have to break some tie in the "clash of kings" resolution, can I ask for power tokens as a "bribe" in order to favor one House instead of another? devil
Is it legal? I haven't found anything about diplomacy in the rulebook...
Could players only agree about which kind of order/support they lend each other's ?
Really Thanks!
Vincenzo

Re: Asking for power in return for something
There is no mechanism in the game for players to give each other power. I would say it is technically illegal. That said, if your group wants to play that way, decide tthat at the beginning, and use it as a house variant!

I think the rulebook even mentions that power token transfers are illegal. You can, however, ask for any other legal bribe if you want. 'Ask' them to stay out of a specific region or to support you in the next round. They still may betray you .
