    I'm in love. I was shitting gold and damnable florells and baratheons got me. Greyjoy won in the end cause i was fighting them two at the same time. Funny thing though, Greyjoys burned Winterfell down, the same way as in the books :p
    The game is just plain awesome, very dynamic after you learn the rules properly, great fun, mostly strategy, very little luck involved.
    Anyone else tried it?

    I didn't know there was such a board game. Is it like Risk: The Song of Ice and Fire version?

    Just hell of a lot better.
    A lot more strategising and a lot less luck. No dice <3 love the game mechanics.
    Oh, and you get to play major houses. I mean SERIOUSLY :halo:

    I saw the game when I was in Canada, but didn't actually buy it, mostly because I don't play board games.

    For those after an alternative there is an AFOIAF mod for Medival Total War 2 -- I've yet to try it out thought (it needs the expansion plus another mod to work and I havn't cleared out enough harddrive space to install it all yet)
