So, Game of Thrones (specifically an expansion). I'm told that vanilla GoT suffers slightly from always playing out the same way, and that this has been addressed by having rotating, secret objectives. And my God but that throws an element of instability into the mix (along with the staples from the original, ie everyone hates Lannister and nobody sees a naval attack coming). Objectives are weighted for each house as well (for example, Baratheon taking the Arbor gets 1 VP, Stark taking it gets 4). Not to say you're not still set up for a standard approach, the new house demonstrates this perfectly. House Arryn, with the strongest stronghold in the game with 6 defence but otherwise land poor and surrounded.|
Anyway, excellent game, especially in the Dune-esque combat system. Can't wait to play again.
LB, you really are a massive geek.
