I'm thinking about picking this expansion up for my gaming group to open up the number of players that can play. The Clash of Kings expansion is also a possibility. We have people who have started reading the books as a result of playing the base board game, and one has only finished the initial book. Should I be concerned about exposing him to spoilers with either expansion?

Re: Any spolers in game?
Certain characters appear on house cards that may not be introduced yet with the first book. But you dont necessarily have to use those house cards at all and even if you do, it doesnt tell you anything on whats going to happen in the books. Characters seem to be chose rather randomly anyways, it doesnt say much about how important a character really is, plot-wise.

Other than that I think the game is pretty spoiler-free, but maybe someone else can think of something to better be aware of.

What I'd say is, no hesitation of buying an expansion spoiler-wise. The game pretty much starts right before the first book starts anyways, and you are playing an alternative version of the story the books tell - see it that way.

That's what I was hoping. I just remember the blasted card game, which did everything from flagging characters as "doomed" to including excerpts. I didn't want to pick up the game if one of the cards had an action of imagine of someone killing someone else from the books, or anything like that. Thanks!
