Orion is eager to play this and is bringing his copy o fit. It can be described as Diplomacy on steroids, for those of you familiar with that game. It's based on George R.R. Martin's fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire. In this board game, each player starts with one of the kingdoms and then seeks to capture surrounding provinces which make it possible to build more and more armies, which you then use to vie with your neighbors. Orders are placed with face-down card pieces so you have to out-guess what your opponents are planning. There are also some interesting mechanics as you bid for the support of three different sources of power (such as the Iron Throne) that each provide an advantage while also needing to help stave off the threat from the North.
