A (Card) Game of Thrones

Some time last year, I purchased A Game of Thrones: The Card Game (Second Edition). After wanting a card-based board game for a while, this became an impulse buy.

With the game being set in the Game of Thrones world, I figured it would be an accessible entry point into a card game. I love the TV series and could find familiarity with some of the characters.

So far, I love it. My fiancée and I play on a semi-regular basis. We’re casual board-gamers and so A Game of Thrones: The Card Game (Second Edition) fits the bill for us!

The Core Set was what we first stumbled upon and following the guides in the box was enough to get us hooked! Since then, I’ve purchased 8 extra sets of cards from the Blood and Gold and Flight of Crows release cycles.

It’s been great to have a game to while the evenings away that doesn’t involve staring at a screen. Any mini digital detox is definitely something I definitely need to make the most of.
