I asked this question some years back and feel the answers i got didn't fully satisfy me.
I love this game and love the setting. I bought a fair bit before it went LCG and still have my old stuff lying around as well as the LCG stuff. But the one issue I have with this game is,
Valar Morghulis (Or Wildfire Assault)
If the entire group is running one of the above cards then I feel there is too much board wipe, especially for my favorite House, Baratheon. Who rely on characters to accumulate power tokens.
But, if you don't run these Plots you crowd the table and then Military Challenges become obsolete. If i lose a Military Challenge I have to pick a character or two to die. Not a big issue if i have ten characters.
It gets worse and worse on both fronts the more players you add. And Melee is my preferred game type.
What is the common approach to this (as I perceive it) problem.
Thanks for your time,
