Hey there. Now that my gaming group are into Game of Thrones, I was planning on picking up this board game when second edition comes out, hopefully before we all break for Christmas.
I've read, listened and obsessed over the Ice & Fire series. Four of my fellow game players have done the same, but three are only watching the television show and don't want anything spoiled for them.
Personally, I played the first edition only once, before I even knew what this whole Game of Thrones thing was about, so I forgot every single thing about the game or the setting. Is this going to be a spoiler-heavy board game got those who only have awareness from the TV show. I know there will be characters they aren't aware of and that's fine, that can be a tantalising hint at what's to come. Personally, I'm enough of a **** to have lied about the longevity of some people before and probably will do again, but those are foilers instead of anything else.
I just mean will the art, names or flavour of the cards spoil the events that happen in the series? I had the image of a lead character's head on an AGOT LCG card spoil their death as I was part way through the first book, so I'm a tad skittish about letting the less well-versed players near this.
