But now disturbing tales of old rise once more and the dead amass north of the wall, the White Walkers have returned and with them comes winter and the Long Night.
In Risk: Game of Thrones Edition, you play on a map of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros as well as on the wider known world of Essos. Involves all your favourite characters including Daenerys Targaryen, Tyrion Lannister and Sansa Stark as you choose your side, deploy your armies and go into battle! RISK: Game of Thrones Edition sees you take control of one of the noble houses of Westeros, with the aim of defeating your enemies and controlling the entire map.
If you’re looking to fill in the week between episodes of Game of Thrones season six and fancy gathering a few of your friends and family round to raise your banners and reenact the War of the Five Kings with a set of dice and a game board, then Habsro may have just the solution for you with its Song of Ice and Fire-themed Risk.It’s important to note that there are two versions of Game of Thrones Risk: the Skirmish Edition (which we’re reviewing here), and the Deluxe Edition. The latter offers an extra map (Essos), two additional armies (Targaryen and Ghiscari), objective cards, characters, and a variety of game modes, whereas the Skirmish Edition is essentially your standard Risk with a Game of Thrones skin (and a Valar Morghulis card, which brings the game to an immediate end when drawn). I’ve seen a few comments online from customers complaining that they received the Skirmish Edition when they thought they were getting the Deluxe one, so make sure you know what you are buying.
This fully licensed version of RISK provides the excitement of Global Domination, classic RISK feeling and plenty of options to customize your RISK experience! If you’re a big fan of Risk and have been playing a version of this anyway on your home made Westeros board, then it goes without saying that this is a must buy (although you’ll probably want to invest in the Deluxe version). If, like me, your interest in this is solely down to the Game of Thrones license, then I’m sure you’ll have some fun when you dust it off now and again to put your mates to the sword in an effort to control the Seven Kingdoms. This expansion introduces the White Walkers as a new playable faction, that changes some of the rules of the game and adds a new area to the map; "Beyond the Wall".Other additions include Maester cards offering battle boosts and Gold Dragon Coins which give the player extra wealth to spend on the pursuit of power. The game also offers special quest cards on the road to victory. Character cards allow players to access special boosts when playing under their aegis. For example, Cersei Lannister can be played after the conquest of three or more territories in a single turn, and allows players to draw an extra territory card.
