We may not be able to play the political game of thrones of King’s Landing but, thanks to CMON and Dark Sword Miniatures’ collaboration, we can at least partake in a Game of Thrones tabletop game (by far the safer option).
“CMON’s relationship with Dark Sword dates back over a decade, and we have contemplated a more serious collaboration for a very long time,” CMON’s Founder and President David Doust said. “This project allows us to dig deep into George R.R. Martin‘s mind and recreate the iconic battles from his award-winning novels on the tabletop.”
According to CMON, A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game offers players the chance to assume control over the Westerosi house of their choice and pit their favorite characters (represented by beautifully crafted, pre-assembled miniatures) against each other in off-book conflicts of their own design.
The game features a Rank System that changes a unit’s capabilities as the battle unfolds, alternating activations and a Tactics System that provides strategic powers fueled by a finite resource each round.
A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game will head to Kickstarter later this year and hit retail stores in 2018.
