A Game of Thrones – So young and so franchised

by admin on May 23, 2011

I’m just amazed at the amount of Game of Thrones merchandising products and rumours are currently floating around. So first of all we have the series itself – already confirmed beyond the first season. Then we have the upcoming Role Playing game, gaming cards, a comic book series, and what’s next? Probably a video game.

The whiner side of me makes me write this, but the fanboy side of me says “Yay!!” This is awesome!

The card game seems especially interesting:

It’s published by Fantasy Flight Games, an especially prolific company with some awesome games such as the RPG Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay and Rogue Trader and piles of great boardgames, such as The Hobbit and the Game of Thrones board game, which I have not tried.

Apart from the core set of the Game of Thrones card game, a good number of expansions have been released, including “A clash of Arms”, “King’s Landing” and “Secrets of Oldtown” among others. I still have to play it, so I will avoid writing down unfounded opinions.

I guess the only thing too do is try it out!!

Has anybody out there any comments about it? Recommendations? What do you think of it?
