Description

Game of Thrones: The Iron Throne is a board game of intrigue and betrayal for 3 to 5 players based on the thrilling TV series and using the game systems from the legendary board game Cosmic Encounter.

Each player controls one of the Great Houses of Westeros, pitting iconic characters from each house against one another in epic battles and schemes. Players negotiate, bluff, and threaten each other, employing any means at their disposal to defeat their foes and claim the ultimate prize: The Iron Throne!

Each turn centers around the resolution of a quickly-resolved encounter between two players which can result in hostilities, startling conquests, and the spread of influence, or the formation of temporary alliances. Although only two players in any encounter will be the active players, your friends might offer you their support - or turn around and offer it to someone else.

There's more to the encounters of The Iron Throne than the initial jostling for power - even with all the alliances and betrayals it can entail. There are schemes within schemes, along with the bluffs, negotiations, and hidden information that color these encounters as the active players discuss the House cards they intend to play. Of course, there's a very good chance that one or both of them may be lying, but they can offer, and even agree, to a truce. Or they can bid cards from their hands, hoping to win hostilities with the higher total power.

In the event of a truce, the active players discuss what they may give each other in order to maintain the peace. In the event of hostilities, however, one side will win, and the other will suffer. You might seize influence or take hostages, or you may even have your characters put to the sword. Win enough of these encounters, though - and find the right ones to lose - and you might find yourself in position to seize the Iron Throne.

Game of Thrones: The Iron Throne supports 3 to 5 players ages 18 and up and plays in 30 to 60 minutes.

Contents: 100 plastic power markers, 25 Influence tokens, 25 leader sheets, 18 event cards, 125 House cards, 5 Influence boards, 25 character tokens, rulebook.
