    Claim the Iron Throne
    ---------------------

    Based on the bestselling fantasy novels by George R.R. Martin (now a hit HBO series), A Game of Thrones: The Board Game
    draws players into a war-torn world of sun-scorched sands, lush forests, and chilling northlands. Each player takes
    control of one of six Great Houses of Westeros, then sets out on an epic campaign of combat and politics to secure total
    dominance.

    This board game includes clear, detailed rules to guide you through setup and gameplay. Play begins when each person
    receives an army of footmen, knights, siege engines and ship units as well as a set of order tokens and other necessary
    components. Each player also receives a deck of unique house cards, which represent important characters from A Song of
    Ice and Fire and are used as leaders in battles against rival houses.

    Vibrant Art and Intricate Detailing
    -----------------------------------

    A Game of Thrones: The Board Game captures the most memorable elements of George R.R. Martin's popular series. The
    detailed board represents an accurate map of Westeros, and the tokens and cards convey many of its most significant
    locations and characters. Attractive marbled plastic figures shaped as footmen, knights, ships, and siege engines
    display your military might to the realm while contributing to the game's overall medieval aesthetic.

    A Game of Thrones: The Board Game Second Edition Product Shot Game board is enhanced with figures, battle
    cards, tokens, and overlays.

    Raise Your House to Dominance
    -----------------------------

    Game play proceeds over the course of ten rounds, after which the player who has claimed the most areas containing
    castles or strongholds is declared the winner. If at any time throughout the game a player controls seven such areas,
    that player may immediately claim victory.

    Each round in the game is made up of three phases: the Westeros Phase, the Planning Phase, and the Action Phase. The
    Westeros Phase represents special events and the day-to-day activities in Westeros. In the Planning Phase, players
    secretly assign orders to all of their units. This portion of the game emphasizes diplomacy and deduction. Can players
    trust their so-called allies, or is a timely betrayal in the making? Finally, during the Action Phase, orders are
    revealed, alliances crumble, and fierce battles decide the players' fates.

    A World of Intrigue, Diplomacy, and Warfare
    -------------------------------------------

    Fragile alliances will form and break over the course of each game, as players promise support to neighboring Houses
    only to betray them for their own selfish ends. But beware; as the war unfolds, the barbaric Wildings (which are
    controlled automatically by the game) work to amass their forces in the far north. Players must occasionally set aside
    their differences to face a common foe--or face the consequences together.

    A Game of Thrones: The Board Game draws you into a vibrant gaming world, bringing your favorite characters to life.
    The board resembles paint on distressed parchment for an old-world look, while the token and card art exhibits intricate
    detailing fans of the novels will recognize and enjoy.
