Inside the Box Reviews: A Game of Thrones – The Card Game Second Edition


Return to Westeros with Inside the Box as they delve deeply into A Game of Thrones: The Card Game Second Edition.

After burning their entire First Edition collection, the ITB crew cautiously try out the new and improved game. Jack’s obsession with theme clashes with George’s focus on mechanics, but can they put aside their differences before an unexpected foe comes back to haunt them?

A Game of Thrones: The Card Game Second Edition is Fantasy Flight’s update of their original Living Card Game (LCG). Joust mode is a epic battle of wits where you construct your own deck and go head-to-head with another player for control of the Iron Throne. Melee mode opens the game up to 3-6 players and adds in political titles for alliances and adversaries. To come out ahead, you’ll have to use strategy to scheme your way to victory.

Living Card Games are sold as a core set (MSRP $39.95) that serves as an introductory mode for 2-4 players, with expansion packs (MSRP $14.95) released periodically that grow the card pool. Unlike collectable games (Magic the Gathering, Dice Masters) all LCG products contain the full set of cards for that release. No randomness or rarity involved! But if you really feel like gambling, you can always try playing strip poker with a dog.

Inside the Box is a comedy tabletop game review series. Watch as they bring their favorite board games to life with a mix of visual FX, cinematic presentation, and an alarmingly immature sense of humor.
