I finally had the chance last week to try out the 2nd edition of one of my favorite multiplayer wargames, A Game of Thrones, the Board Game, 2nd ed (Fantasy Flight Games), by Christian T. Petersen. I had played the first edition, along with the two expansions, many many times in the past and it was the favorite of two of the groups I played with, but for some reason, even though it’s been out for a while now, the new edition never hit the table.
The verdict? Wow, I really should have brought this out earlier. It is still one of the best “short” multiplayer wargame out there, but more on that later. Let me first go over the components and the rules.
