A Game of Thrones: The Card Game is a card game of intrigue, diplomacy, and strategy for two to four players. The Core Set includes everything that four players need for a self-contained and vastly replayable gaming experience. Its most compelling attribute, however, is the infinite customization afforded by the Living Card Game®, or LCG, system. This innovative new way of looking at card games gives players the ability to expand their library of cards, at a relatively small cost, by purchasing monthly Chapter Packs, which offer fixed sets of sixty new cards. This setup allows you to choose which components to include, and it shifts the advantage away from players able to afford rare cards to players capable of creatively compiling the most effective deck. In short, the LCG system levels the playing field, providing the best features of both CCGs and standalone card games.
