“What if the Red Wedding never happened, and Robb Stark assaulted King’s Landing? Now fans can find out!”
CMON, in cooperation with Dark Sword Miniatures, have announced a tabletop miniatures game based on George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series. The project is heading to Kickstarter in Q3 of 2017 and retail stores in 2018, but you can get a taste of what the game will be like right here, right now.
The A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game lets players take control of their favorite Houses from the novels, represented by trays of high-quality, pre-assembled miniatures, and lead them into battle against their opponents. Players can recreate their favorite moments from the series or create their own stories. What if the Red Wedding never happened, and Robb Stark assaulted King’s Landing? Now fans can find out!
Battles can range from large-scale wars with hundreds of miniatures, to simple skirmishes between a few units without complicating the elegantly designed rules. The game features several unique systems, including alternating activations that keep the players engaged; a Rank System that changes a unit’s capabilities as the battle rages on; a Tactics System that provides strategic powers fueled by a finite resource each round; and, most importantly, the iconic Heroes, such as Robb Stark and Jaime Lannister, that can change the course of war both on and off the battlefield.
We’ll be sure to bring you more details about the game when the Kickstarter launches, so stay tuned.
