This is the online version of Fantasy Flight's board game: A Game of Thrones.
To get you started, this letter contains all the information you need in
your first battle for Westeros online.
To play the game you should of course know its rules, and if you do not yet know
them, you can download the rulebooks here. There is also a simple
introduction, which explains most of the (2nd Eition) rules on YouTube.
Watch out! There are many variations to the game, because of add-ons to the original one and a sequel, the 2nd Edition. The online version is based upon the original game, but features from the other editions are added step by step.
Each game is started with specified rules options. What the different options mean is explained here.
If there are open Questions, this link may answer them.
If you only know the second edition rules, you should read link.
There are two modes in which games can run.
In LIVE mode, players join the game online and stay there for as long
as it continues. This is almost like playing with friends at a table,
and the game will finish some hours after it started.
In Play By E-Mail mode, or PBEM, you only need to go online, when it is your turn. To notify you, the game will send you an e-mail, hence the name. This way, you can think a lot about strategy and tactics before you commit your decisions, and you do not need to stay online for hours. The drawback of this mode is that the game generally takes much longer than a LIVE game (up to months).
If this all seems too much to you, you can start slowly by playing some beginner games. In the game lobby they are colored green. Those games are hosted by experienced players, who can help you if you have specific questions.
To protect this site from bots and spammers, you are not allowed to create games yourself at first. You can earn that right, by playing the game and abide to some basic rules, which are required to keep the game fair for all players.
Besides the game, there is a public forum, where you can discuss strategies, features and anything else concerning a Game of Thrones. We encourage you to use it, but please abide to the forum rules, listed here.
We hope, you enjoy this site, and we will meet you in battle some day!
