A Game of Thrones: The Board Game - Digital Edition is a digital version of the cult board game set in the Song of Ice and Fire universe by George R.R. Martin. Originally released by the Fantasy Flight Games, but its digital adaptation is the responsibility of Dire Wolf studio, which has a digital version of Sagrada or Raiders from the North Sea.
The action of the game is set after the death of King Robert Baratheon. On the map of Westeros, we represent one of the Great families belonging to the Seven Kingdoms and take part in the race for the Iron Throne waiting for the winner in the King's landing. We are not the only ones who snore at him, because the power struggle is at stake, so there is no shortage of knowledge and intrigues from books and series, battles and arms races and taking care of the economy.
The beginning of the game is the time of choosing the house we want to represent. And so we choose between Lannisters, Starks, Greyjoys, Martells, Tyrells and Baratheons. Each one starts in a different place on the map of Westeros, corresponding to their clan's headquarters, has different initial resources and generals with different abilities. The game is divided into 10 rounds, during which players take both open and secret actions. Secret actions include all players playing special chips at the beginning of each turn on the armies they control, which are then discovered and the orders on them are dealt with in the order in which the level of initiative occupied by the player influences. Our army can consist of infantry troops, knights, siege machines and ships, and each type has a different strength. Units are used to conquer new territories and defend against attacks from other players. During the battle, the player whose strength is greater wins, but the result, which is influenced by the military units, can be conquered by special cards of our clan.
And just as in the Game of Thrones, the board version of the game could not lack intrigue, manipulation and shaky alliances, because the winner may be one. Long conversations between live players and the tightening of the alliance conditions, as well as unholy conspiracies with artificial intelligence, are permitted.
In addition to fighting for the throne, the players have another goal in common, this time requiring them to cooperate in providing power chips to power the Night's Watch, whose job it is to serve a guard on the ice wall in order not to let wild Free Folk out of civilized Westeros.
A Game of Thrones: The Board Game - Digital Edition is a game designed for online gaming for 6 players, but if we decide to play alone, we can replace them with artificial intelligence.
A Game of Thrones: The Board Game - Digital Edition is a three-dimensional game with a map and player's units in the foreground. During the game, an atmospheric soundtrack is played.
