"When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground."
-Cersei Lannister



Welcome to A Game of Thrones: The Card Game, where you'll experience George R.R. Martin's Westeros like never before! AGoT:tCG is Fantasy Flight Games' game of intrigue, diplomacy, and strategy for 4 players. Across the Seven Kingdoms, the Great Houses of Westeros struggle to control the Iron Throne. As the influential House Baratheon, honorable House Stark, treacherous House Lannister and fierce House Targraryen all vie in a life-or-death struggle for the future of the realm, dark and supernatural forces amass outside the kingdom’s defensive wall. Winter is coming. Do you have what it takes to emerge victorious in the only game that matters, A Game of Thrones?


“Give me honorable enemies rather than ambitious ones, and I'll sleep more easily by night."

Ned felt his anger rise. "You knew of this plot, and yet you did nothing."
"I command whisperers, not warriors."
"You might have come to me earlier."
"Oh, yes, I confess it. And you would have rushed straight to the king, yes? And when Robert heard of his peril, what would he have done? I wonder."
Ned considered that. "He would have damned them all, and fought anyway, to show he did not fear them."


“Put not your trust in spiders, my lord."
That was scarcely anything Ned needed to be told.
"I will remember that, Maester. And I thank you for your help.”



In AGoT:tCG, players take control of one of four major houses of Westeros, and they zealously compete for power (the first player that earns 15 “power tokens” is declared the winner). Each house’s deck has different strengths and weakness based on the themes, characters, and locations of George R.R. Martin’s epic series. Indeed, fans of Martin’s writing will find AGoT:tCG strikingly true to the novels, and newcomers to the saga will be drawn in by the strife, intrigue, and backstabbery that so many readers have come to love. House Stark’s strength, for example, is in their military capabilities, while House Lannister’s cards concentrate on shocking and devious manipulations of the normal flow of the game.

The beloved heroes, villains, locations, and events of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire saga come to life in this customizable card game. Players take control of the Starks, Baratheons, Lannisters, or Targaryens and attempt to plot, fight, conspire, manipulate, and bribe their way to victory.

AGoT:tCG offers an experience faithful to George R.R. Martin’s beloved saga while simultaneously providing a clever and addictive game system. Whether your tactical style is underhanded or openly aggressive, diplomatic or blunt, you’ll find yourself enthralled. All of this, along with the infinite flexibility of the LCG™ system, makes A Game of Thrones: The Card Game the only game that matters...

This will be a Play-By-Post Game of A Game of Thrones: The Card Game for 4 players, participants determined from sign-ups.
We will NOT be deck-building nor using Agenda cards.
Decks will be comprised of each House's proprietary cards in the Core Set and first set of expansions.

Please sign-up in limegreen.
You may also post which House you may wish to play or not.
(See image in next post.)

Participants will be determined randomly.

    A QUICK TUTORIAL ON A GAME OF THRONES - THE CARD GAME

    “I can feel it in these old bones of mine, and Maester Aemon agrees. The cold winds are rising. Summer is at an end, and a winter is coming such as this world has never seen.” — Old Bear Mormont

    The Houses

    ffg_gallery_11_304322.jpgffg_gallery_11_302160.jpgffg_gallery_11_140249.jpgffg_gallery_11_80409.jpg


    As with most card-based games, the rules are simple but the card actions and exceptions create situations that can be complex.

    One important item - Responses can be played after ANY one card play! This can mean you will stop the active player in his tracks to play a card on his action. Don't be surprised if another player interrupts your plans!

    -The Turn Phases-
    1. Plot
    Step 1: Choose and Reveal Plot Cards
    Each player chooses and reveals one plot card from his plot deck.
    The player with the highest total initiative (sum of your plot card’s initiative and any initiative bonuses on cards you control) wins initiative and chooses who will be the first player. He may choose himself. The first player then decides in which order the plot cards effect's are resolved.

    Step 2: Select Titles
    Starting with the first player and proceeding clockwise, each player selects a title from the Small Council Chamber.

    2. Draw
    Players draw 2 cards from their House deck and add them to their hand.

    3. Marshalling
    The active player completes all marshalling before the next player clockwise. On your turn, first determine your income (add the income on your revealed plot card to any income bonuses on cards you control) and take that number of gold tokens from the Treasury. Now, play cards from your hand, paying their gold cost until you either run out of gold, run out of cards to play, or stop.
    You may also attach duplicates to your unique cards, at no gold cost.
    A Character, Location, or Attachment of a different House costs its gold cost +2.
    A card that has been ‘used’ is rotated 90º and is kneeling. Only standing cards may be used for actions that require kneeling.

    4. Challenges
    The active player completes all challenges before the next player clockwise. Initiate one of each type of challenge against any opponent, in any order. Before, between, but not during each step, players may play cards and use abilities playable during the Challenges phase.

    Step 1: Declare Attackers
    Declare the type of challenge (military, intrigue, or power), and which player you are challenging. Declare attackers by kneeling at least one of your standing characters with the correct challenge icon.

    Step 2: Declare Defenders
    The challenged opponent may kneel at least one standing character with the correct challenge icon as defenders against your challenge.

    Step 3: Resolve
    The player with the highest total STR wins.
    Ties go to the attacker (must have 1 STR).

    Attacker wins:
    Military:
    Defender chooses and kills a number of his characters in play equal to the claim value on the attacker’s revealed plot card.
    Intrigue:
    Defender discards, at random, cards from his hand equal to the claim value of the attacker’s revealed plot card.
    Power:
    Defender gives the attacker power equal to the claim value on the attacker’s revealed plot card.

    If the defender had a total STR of 0 (or no defending characters), the attacker also claims 1 bonus power from the power pool.

    Defender wins:
    No claim effect.

    5. Dominance
    All players count the total combined STR of all of their standing characters, adding 1 for each of their gold tokens.
    Player with the highest value is dominant and immediately claims 1 power.

    6. Standing
    All players simultaneously stand kneeling Characters, Locations, and Attachments.

    7. Taxation
    All players simultaneously move unspent gold tokens back to the treasury. Return all titles to the Small Council Chamber.

    -Power and Victory-
    The game is immediately over when one player has claimed 15 or more total power between his House and/or characters in play. That player wins the game. If players reach victory simultaneously, the first player chooses which of these players wins the game.
    When you are instructed to claim X power for your House, take X counters from the power pool in the Throne Room and place them on your House card. When a card effect allows a character to claim X power, take X counters from the Power pool and place them on the character card. This counts towards your 15 power victory total, but does not count as power on your House. If a character leaves play for any reason, power on that character is returned to the Power pool.

    -Keywords-
    Deadly
    During a challenge, if the attacking player controls the most participating Deadly characters, the defending player must choose and kill a participating defending character after the challenge resolves.
    Deathbound
    These cards are placed in the dead pile whenever they would otherwise be placed in the discard pile from play.
    Deathbound Event cards are placed in the dead pile only after they are successfully played from their owner’s hand. If the effects of a Deathbound Event are canceled, it is placed in its owner’s discard pile.
    Immunity
    This card ignores the effects of card types to which it is immune. A card cannot be chosen as the target of any effect to which it is immune.
    Limited
    You may play only one Limited card (of any type) per round. A Limited Response: action is not the same thing; each player cannot trigger more than one Limited Response: per round.
    No Attachments
    This card may not have any attachments on it at any time. Duplicates are not considered to be attachments.
    Renown
    If you win a challenge (as attacker or defender), each of your participating characters with Renown claims 1 power after the challenge resolves.
    Stealth
    For each of your attacking characters with Stealth, you may choose, before defenders are declared, a character without Stealth on the defending side who may not then defend during this challenge.
    Setup Cards may be played during setup.

    -House Specific Keywords-
    Ambush - Targaryen
    You may put an Ambush card into play from your hand as an Any Phase: action, by paying its gold cost with influence.
    Infamy - Lannister
    When you claim power or move power to your House, you may place it on any card with Infamy instead of placing it on your House. Power on a card with Infamy does count towards your victory total, regardless of the card’s type.
    Stalwart - Stark
    When a Stalwart card is killed or discarded from play, it is placed on the top of its owner’s deck instead of being placed in the dead or discard pile.
    Vigilant - Baratheon
    After you win a challenge as the attacker, you may stand any number of Vigilant cards that you control.
    Intimidate - *Greyjoy*
    While a character with Intimidate is attacking, characters with a lower STR than that character do not count their STR for that challenge.
    Vengeful - *Martell*
    After you lose a challenge as the defender, you may stand any number of Vengeful cards that you control.

    -Titles-
    Supports
    If your title supports another title, you cannot initiate challenges against the player holding it. When a player you support is attacked by another player, if the defending player declares no defenders, you may declare any number of your own eligible characters as defenders to that challenge. You are considered the winner or loser of the challenge, but the original target of the challenge is still responsible for any claim that would need to be resolved.
    Stealth, if applicable, must be declared against characters controlled by the player who is the original target of the attack.

    On the board, a title is positioned clockwise from the title it supports, and a curved arrow points to the supported title.

    Opposes
    If your title opposes another title, you are rewarded for winning a challenge against the player holding it. If you win a challenge against a player with a title that you oppose, you claim 1 power for your House in addition to any other power you might claim for winning that challenge. You cannot claim more than one power per round in this manner.

    On the board, a title is positioned opposite the title it opposes, and a dark arrow points to the opposed title.


    Lord Commander of the Kingsguard
    Add 3 to your side’s total STR in any Military challenge in which you have at least one participating character.
    Special ability: Once per round, when an opponent is attacked by Military challenge by another opponent and decides not to declare any defenders, you can make yourself the target of the attack. The attacker cannot back out of the challenge; any characters he declared as attackers now attack you. If you win, you move 1 power from the attacker’s House to your own. If you lose, you must satisfy the attacker’s claim. You cannot use this ability if you are not a legal target for the declared attack.

    Master of Whispers
    Add 3 to your side’s total STR in any Intrigue challenge in which you have at least one participating character.
    Supports
    Master of Coin.
    Opposes
    Master of Laws, Crown Regent.

    Crown Regent
    Add 3 to your side’s total STR in any Power challenge in which you have at least one participating character.
    Special ability: Once per round, after a player initiates a challenge and declares a target and attackers, you may make that player choose a new legal target. If there are no other legal targets, the attack goes through against the original target. Players can never choose to attack themselves.

    Master of Coin
    When you count income during the Marshalling phase, add 2 to your total income.
    Supports
    Master of Laws.
    Opposes
    Hand of the King.

    Hand of the King
    Use once, at any time throughout the round, to produce 2 influence.
    Supports
    Master of Whispers.
    Opposes
    Master of Coin.

    Master of Laws
    Draw an additional card when you draw cards during the draw phase. This does not count towards your draw cap for the round.
    Supports
    Hand of the King.
    Opposes
    Master of Whispers.

    -Other Game Concepts-
    Unique Cards
    Unique cards have a banner icon next to their title; each player may only have one copy in play. You may not play or take control of a unique card if there is a copy of that card in your dead pile, or if your opponent has taken control of another copy of that unique card from you.

    Duplicates
    If you have a duplicate (another card of the same name) of a unique card in your hand but you already control and own a version of that card in play, you may attach the duplicate from your hand to the unique card in play, for no gold cost, during your marshalling. Place the duplicate under the version already in play. (You control a card you have played as long as no opponent has taken control of that card through the use of an effect. A card you own is one you brought to the game.)
    If one of your unique cards is about to be killed, discarded from play, or returned to your hand or deck, as a triggered Response: effect, you may discard an attached duplicate to save the unique card.
    Duplicates, once they have been played, are not considered attachments; although they are attached to a character, they are not affected by effects that specifically affect attachments.
    Duplicates have no text, titles, or traits. Duplicates may only be played on unique cards that you control and own. A card attached in this way is thus only considered to be a “duplicate card” while it is actually in play and attached to a version of itself.
    You may have more than one duplicate attached to a single card.

    Multiple Character Versions
    Different versions of unique cards (ie, cards with the same name but different stats and effects) are considered to be the same unique card (and thus only one version may be in play on your side at any one time). If you are playing with multiple versions of a unique card, and have the option to play a different version as a duplicate, only the abilities of the first card played (ie, the card on top) are in effect. You cannot switch a card with its duplicate.

    Multi-house Cards
    Multi-house cards have 2 (or more) House shields printed on them. They are considered to be affiliated with 2 or more Houses, as indicated by their shields, for all game purposes.

    Playing Cards
    You are only allowed to play Characters, Locations, and Attachments from your hand by paying their gold cost during your turn of the Marshalling phase. Event cards may be played, and card abilities may be used, at any time during the phase stated in their text. If a card ability states Any Phase: then the ability may be used during any phase of the game.

    “In Play” & Removed from the Game
    All non-plot cards in the game are considered in play except for cards in your House deck, cards in your discard and dead piles, your agenda, any card that has been removed from the game, and cards in hand.
    Cards removed from the game are completely removed from the playing area, and have no further interaction with that game.

    The Draw Cap
    No player can draw more than 3 additional cards per round, regardless of card effects. Only effects with the word draw are considered under this restriction.

    Drawing Multiple Cards
    When a player draws multiple cards, he is considered to be drawing them one at a time, not all at once.

    High-claim Military Challenges
    If, during a military challenge, the defending player loses, and the attacking player has a claim of 2 or higher, the defending player must kill the required number of different characters all at once.

    Actions and Passive Abilities
    Taking an action is defined as playing a card or using the ability of a card already in play (responses do not count as actions).
    Immediately after they are announced, action effects are completely resolved; then another action may be taken. You may take actions during any player’s turn as long as your card allows for its effect to be executed at that time.
    The first player always has the option to take the first action of each phase (but is not allowed to play a Character, Attachment, or Location card during the Marshalling phase, unless it is his turn).
    After a player’s action resolves, he must allow each opponent (in clockwise order) the opportunity to take an action or pass. A player may not take another action until all opponents have taken an action or passed.
    A passive ability is a card effect that takes place automatically, without action from any player. Some are automatically initiated at a certain time; others may be lasting effects.
    Actions and passive abilities are not interchangeable: If a card has a passive ability, resolving that ability is not considered taking an action by the player. Passive abiities are always resolved before player actions may take place.
    If two or more passive abilities are initiated at the same moment, they are resolved in the order determined by the first player.

    Responses
    Some card abilities, instead of listing the phase in which they may be used, have a Response: label.
    These abilities may only be used specifically when the card in question states they may be used. Responses resolve before the next action may be taken.
    Response opportunities always begin with the player to the left of the player who initiated the action to which a player wishes to respond, and proceed clockwise from that player.

    Cancel/Save Responses
    Normally, when a player takes an action, either through playing a card or choosing to trigger the ability of a card already in play, the effects of that action are completely resolved before another action can be taken. The exception to this is a response action that contains the words cancel or save.

    Cancel responses are special effects that interrupt an action and prevent its effects from resolving. However, any costs of the canceled action must still be paid.

    Save responses are special effects that interrupt and prevent the killing or discarding of a card in play. However, any costs of the killing/discarding action must still be paid.

    Lasting Effects
    Most effects last only for the duration of one action (immediately after being triggered), but some effects last for a set period of time, or even indefinitely. Effects that last for longer than a single action are considered lasting effects.
    Multiple lasting effects may affect the same card at the same time. The order in which the lasting effects take place is irrelevant, since the net sum of all lasting effects is applied to the character.
    If a character’s STR is ever lower than 0 after all effects are applied, its STR is rounded up to 0. Any time a new modifier is added to the mix, reevaluate to net sum from scratch before applying it to the base STR.

    -“Littlefinger” Variant-
    Players can also use their gold to influence the actions of the other players in the game. Gold can be offered and exchanged between players, for any reason, during any phase other than the Marshalling phase. The only catch is that money must always be paid in advance of the desired action (or inaction). Players can negotiate deals at any time, but it should not be employed as a tactic to stall and slow down the game, or to intentionally irritate another player.
    Players can (and will!) back out of deals, even after money has changed hands. So proceed with caution!

    -Strategy Tips & Info-
    Here's a hard and fast rule with card games.
    Just read the cards for what they say; no more; no less. Don't read more into them than what they say and no less than what they say. Some of the images of cards will have things that will not apply to this particular game, i.e. deck-building & tournament stuff. I will try to keep those out of the Hand Tracker texts to avoid confusion. Play dumb and you will probably be fine!

    Handtracker
    We'll be using admanb's Hand Tracker for this game; you'll need to make an account for Hand Tracker (if you haven't already).

    Once the game begins, you'll use the "Draw to Hand" command on Hand Tracker to draw cards. To put cards into play, (eg. as with characters), click the "Give" button and give the card to me, then link the action in the thread with the name of the card. To play or discard them, (eg. as with events), click the "Play" button on the card in your hand, then link the action in the thread with the name of the card.

    My brain hurts.

    Can I express an unpopular opinion? I don't see why people like the Greyjoys. Heck, I don't know why the Greyjoys are even allowed to exist. You'd think the other houses would have wiped out the thieving pirates, rather than legitimizing them.

    Yah, Cthulhu Vikings should've gotten torched after the Greyjoy Rebellion, but no one said Robert Baratheon and Ned Stark were known for good choices.

    Because vikings, that's why.
    Because everything in AGOT exists to hurt you.

    When were you planning on starting stever? I am impatient and want to see how this works.

    I did watch the vids. But that's very simplistic!

    yes, I find games are best learned in "Live Fire" exercises, especially card games like this.

    Player selection - (cal; Phy; eb; jd; IW; Mat): 6d1000
    704, 646, 710, 841, 937, 375

    704 - @caliber
    646 - @Phyphor
    710 - @enlightenedbum
    841 - @jdarksun
    937 - @Iron Weasel
    375 - @Matev

    Sorry, Phyphor & Matev!

    Seating order -
    Iron Weasel, jdarksun, enlightenedbum & caliber.

    That gives us enlightenedbum as Targaryen - red & caliber as Stark - grey - (lowest preference stated).
    Baratheon - limegreen & Lannister - peru are left.
    Iron Weasel to select a remaining House & jdarksun will get the last one.

    Clarification on ambush: I have to pay the gold cost with influence on my dudes and not with gold? Or is it either/or?

    Ambush - Targaryen
    You may put an Ambush card into play from your hand as an Any Phase: action, by paying its gold cost with influence.


    Kinda both, (depending on the phase).
    If you put it into play during YOUR Marshalling Phase, you can pay with Gold or Influence, but not a combination of the two.
    "(but is not allowed to play a Character, Attachment, or Location card during the Marshalling phase, unless it is his turn)."

    Other phases require Influence to put it into play, which others generally can't do, thus "Ambushing" them with a surprise after all have Marshalled forces already.

    Here's a hard and fast rule with card games, which I should have put in the second post.
    Just read the cards for what they say; no more; no less.
    Don't read more into them than what they say and no less than what they say.
    Some of the images of cards will have things that will not apply to this particular game, i.e. deck-building & tournament stuff.
    I will keep those out of the Hand Tracker texts to avoid confusion.
    Play dumb and you will probably be fine!

    I'm keen to play this, but stever was clearly excited to have Phyphor involved.

    Stever works hard for us and deserves nice things, so @Phyphor: if you still want in, you can have my spot.

    If not, then I'll be the Lions of the Rock
