First off, Hello everyone. I've followed Fantasy Flight Games games for a long time. Never really got into them due to cost and the low amount of willing players in my area (Majority of players were all Magic fans). But recently I've been expanding the local player base and have decided to try out the LCGs (due to both the decreased price compared to a CCG and the fact that I've been on a real Game of Thrones high lately. The HBO show renewed my interest and has me rereading the series, so I figured I'd double my AGoT pleasure with the LCG and possibly the board game if I can find a few interested players.
Now, with that being said I'm looking to purchase into the AGoT (starting at the beginning sets and working my way up probably). So if anyone can suggest any places to purchase the Chapter Packs at an even better discounted price than here then that would be great.
I have also read up on the AGoT evolution over the years, I know to avoid the first release (as a CCG) and the older Chapter Packs (that only have 40 cards) in favor of the revised Chapter Packs (60 cards) when applicable. But that's about all I know. So, if there is any reason that I shouldn't start with the core set and then purchase my way up starting with the release order of the chapter packs then please tell me, as that's my current plan.
I'll only be playing casually at this point, no tournaments or anything like that. Probably just a handful of players every couple weeks. I'll also be the only one purchasing cards and maintaining decks of several different houses for others to play with (for the moment). So this is more for fun than anything else. Just looking to build about 4 to 6 balanced decks (one to represent each house -- eventually) for everyone to enjoy some game time.
