George R.R. Martin's bestselling fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire, explores a world of intrigue, brutal betrayal, and epic battles. Each player takes on the role of one of the six Great Houses, struggling for control of the Iron Throne. The Living Card Game (LCG) format comes to life with the release of the A Game of Thrones Core Set. Playable out of the box for 2-4 players in either the melee (multiplayer) or joust (head-to-head) format, the core set is an ideal starting point for new players. The A Game of Thrones LCG Core Set includes 240 fixed cards featuring a complete deck for the Starks, the Lannisters, the Baratheons, and the Targaryens, and includes six massive plastic title figurines, gold dragon tokens, power counters, and a game board to enhance your adventures in Westeros.
