First off, I LOVE A Game of Thrones the Board Game. Have for some time now. However, I do not get to play it nearly as much as I would like to because of real life circumstances preventing me and my gaming group from ever getting together to play. I have found a program called Vassal designed to allow people to play board games over the internet and I obtained a Game of Thrones 2nd edition module for it and it seems to actually function quite well. If anyone would be interested in getting a gaming group together for this to play maybe once or twice a week, let me know.
There are some rules that me and my gaming have come to adapt when we played the game that might not align exactly with that other Game of Thrones players might be used to however. Some of these rules include:
1. A player must obtain at least 7 Strongholds / Castles and hold at least 7 Strongholds / Castles until the end of the current round to win. (Unless of course 10 rounds pass in which case who ever has the most Strongholds / Castles wins or if you're tied you go through the tie breakers which are Strongholds-Supply Track- Power Tokens - Iron Throne Track)
2. A lone Siege Engine acts kind of like a Power Token being used on the board in the sense that if it is attacked by its self, it does not start a battle, it is simply removed from the board. However as long as it is sitting on a Stronghold / Castle, Supply Barrels, or Power Icons by its self, it still provides control.
3. A Siege Engine cannot start a battle by its self unless it is marching into a territory containing a Stronghold / Castle. This means in order for a Siege Engine to march into a territory that contains enemy units but not a Stronghold / Castle, It must be accompanied by other units.
4. If a territory containing nothing but routed enemy units is marched on, no battle is started. The routed units are simply removed from the board. However if the territory contained a mix of routed and unrouted units, a battle would ensure like normal without the routed units strength points counting.
I would be open to changing or ignoring some of these rules if you guys don't like them, it's just how me and my last gaming group liked the game. The days that would work best for me to play during the week would probably be Tuesday afternoons around 3:30 pm CST, and Saturday afternoons at anytime. Again, if you're interested just reply to this post or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
