hello. i wanted to ask if is it worth buying a game of thrones even though ii'll usually play with only one more player. i know the rules says you need to play 3-5 players but i thought of doing each players control two kings. i wanted to ask what you think? will it be any fun playing it with two players?

Nah, that won't work. Because one of the strongest elements in the game is that in order to prevent someone from winning, other players often have to ally (temporarily). Basically, the game is about "backstabbing your allies at the right time so that they cannot stab you back" :-)


That being said, perhaps it would be possible to make special rules for 2 player game. Things that come to mind:
1. Winning the game requires 12 cities/strongholds under your control.
2. The King's Court track would look like this: 1st place: Raven and 2 special orders, 2nd place: 1 special order.
