A Game of Thrones

Quick look by Moritz Eggert

Only play it with wargamers! Rating went down a little after repeated play, as the balancing problem with Lannister never seems really solved, even with the new rules. But as an improvement on "Diplomacy" roots this game works very well, and the transition of book to game has been handled wonderfully, with beautiful graphics that capture the mood of the (great!) books. This could become (after some tweaking) to Martin's "A Game of Thrones" what Avalon Hill's "Dune" did to the "Dune" books. It certainly made me read the books and I never looked back. Perhaps one of Fantasy Flight's finest games.
