I can't tell you about a Game of Thrones, But I can tell you my personal opinion of warrior knights. Warrior knights is a great game with a few friends (I find it better with 2 or 3 other people) and it's not a game where you press your luck, you actually have to think about your choices. Want to keep conquering cities and kill other nobles? well if they're worked to much, they'll ask for their payment. Keep gainig political influence and effecting the laws in other ways? There will be a meeting to decide on the laws of the Kingdom. Or do you want to walk out of the meetings, being immune to the laws but having no political power? Perhaps you should pay for a voyage on a trip to china, and hope you receive your money quadrupiled? Or does having the power of the church interest you?
Warrior knights is a great game because of choices like these, your always thinking, but you'll never get "Anylisys Paralysis", or in other words think to much to slow the game. Also the game is as fast or as slow as you want it to be, as you can always lighten the win conditions. and of course, attacking or making "deals" with your fellow nobles is fun as well, and betraying them even funner, for it's all about you in the end isn't it? Random events will happen and hurt you, or sometimes you'll have your troops killed, but I've never had a warrior knights game where somebody was crippled in anyway to continue. Your always a participant in the game, and always having fun
Sorry for the long post, but I hoped it helped.
