Category: Age: 18+ 30 - 60 Min 3 - 5 Players 2016

Game of Thrones: The Iron Throne is the new game of intrigue and betrayal coming soon from Fantasy Flight Games!

Featuring the theme and the characters from the thrilling TV series, Game of Thrones: The Iron Throne uses game systems based on the legendary Cosmic Encounter. Each one of you commands one of the Great Houses of Westeros and you have to negotiate, bluff, maneuver, forge or break alliances, threaten your rivals and spread your influence across the land, aiming at coming to the Iron Throne!

Every turn, an encounter takes place between two players. They can bluff, lie and they can agree to a truce. Such an encounter may result in hostilities, alliances or spreading their influence. The two players may also have the support from the other players, if, of course, they are willing to offer it. The players who win enough of these encounters, will have more chances of seizing the Iron Throne. Your goal is to spread five of your influence to your opponents’ House cards and take the crown for yourself.

Each of the five Great Houses gains strength from five unique characters, each one with unique abilities. At the beginning of the game, you will choose one of them to be your leader, along with its leader sheet and character token. Even when you play the game multiple times with the same House, the experience will change with each different character. You, also, have your House Deck, which you use during your encounters and allows you to take advantage of your characters’ unique talents whenever they participate in an encounter.

Experiment with different Houses and leaders to enjoy a great variety of play experiences. The Iron Throne is there waiting for you to claim it. Do you have what it takes to scheme your way to victory?

Game of Thrones: The Iron Throne is expected to be available in the fourth quarter of 2016.
