  1. I have a sinking suspicion that POD expansions for A Game of Thrones Second Edition will become a yearly thing from FFG at Days of Ice and Fire. I'd expect either a Tully expansion akin to the Arryn one, or a Winds of Winter expansion akin to Dance with Dragons (although probably including Targaryens) if Winds is out next year (fingers crossed). Either way, I could see a nice deluxe edition going like this: Arryn pieces, Tully/Targaryen pieces, and redesigned pink cards and pieces for the "Starks" from Dance with Dragons.
  2. Forgot to post the link, here it is: http://enter-there.com/
  3. The same guy who made the 9 player Winds of Winter expansion made a set of House Arryn tokens for me. Here's the link for those interested. I just finished up my set today, and it's much better than using Tyrell pieces. I took the sigil from the victory tracker and magnified it by 125% and used that to make a home area marker for the Eyrie so as to fix what is (in my opinion) the expansions biggest flaw that the Arryns max power at 19 while everyone else maxes at 20.
  4. This acctually sounds like a pretty good idea. What I'd recommend for a fortification icon is this: it is removed while the invading force is there. If, however, the area is vacated without a power token being left behind the garrison token may be returned.
  5. I probably would to, especially if the footmen looked more like the game of thrones footmen.
  6. If they made this, I would buy it. I'll buy pretty much anything for the Board Game.
  7. Also, I disagree with new pieces based on the show, I honestly love the marbled plastic look.
  8. Neo1818 said: Well this "extension" is not hugely popular, so this explains that. But as you can see here : http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/987229/would-you-buy-blue-units-and-tokens A lot of people are on your side, and that is what should be showned to FFG. In my opinion, I think FFG should sell a Premium Pieces Pack with all new pieces from all houses ( including Aryn, and maybe Targaryen for the PoD ADWD). And the new pieces should be inspired by the show : http://imgur.com/B86e2t2 It would be awesome, and a lot of people would be ready to put a lot of money in it. What makes you say it's not hugely popular? Does anyone know how well it's selling? Also, what Targaryen pieces? There are no Targaryen forces in DwD.
  9. I also interpreted it as including Winterfell, for the follow reasons; 1. The two objectives are completely seperate, as in the case of the other Houses. Holding Lannisport is unrelated to holding King's Landing, holding Dragonstone is unrelated to holding King's Landing, and holding the Eyrie is unrelated to having more available power tokens than any other player. By this logic, holding Winterfell and controlling 5 areas with castles and strongholds are completely seperate objectives. If this is true, then Winterfell is not a factor any which way in the 5 areas, and therefore counts as one. 2. It doesn't say "5 OTHER/ADDITIONAL areas." If it somehow specified a distinction from Winterfell then obviously you wouldn't count it, but as Winterfell is not mentioned I see no reason to assume it does not count as one of the five. 3. Lannister and Arryn have good odds of meeting their objective in turn 1, and while more difficult it is certainly plausible that Baratheon could as well. If Stark really needed to net 6 total areas with castles and strongholds then it would be impossible based on the position of their forces and available march orders for them to achieve this goal. Stark is already at a disadvantage by being 4th on King's Court, I cannot imagine they would put Stark at an even further disadvantage by not permitting them to claim their once per turn in turn 1 like other houses have the option of doing.
  10. I got in touch with FFG, and they said they have no announcements regarding this at the time, and are unable to accept custom orders of blue pieces. Sadly I haven't found the fan support I was hoping there woould be for such an expansion, so as of the moment I really doubt we'll ever see dedicated House Arryn pieces, which is a tragedy. I'm frankly surprised so few people who read this topic expressed interest, I would have imagined this would be right up everyone's alley.
  11. 1. No. Only units can be supported, not power or garrison tokens 2. Uncertain, never really used tides of battle. 3. No, support and defence may be played as many times as desired per turn 4. I'm not sure I understand your question, but I believe the answer is no. You can only support adjacent areas, you cannot support across seas. Similarly, a land unit cannot support a sea unit. Hope that helps!
  12. While I think this could be ann interesting variant, I think it adds more randomization with the house cards than was ever intended. I think there's an extent to which you're meant to be using house cards to counter the house cards you expect your opoonent to use, rather than assigning multiple stages before the conflict will occur and hope you're not assigning the wrong card. In theory, I see how it could be viewed as adding a more tactical element, but in practice I think it will only serve to randomize everything. If you're doing to be more thematic, couldn't you argue they should be face up since you would know who is leading forces in a real war? I think 1st Editions Storm of Swords did this better, but again, it could be interesting. I'm definitly not one to knock it until i try it, so if I ever get a group interested in playing this way I'll give it a whirl.
  13. DarkLoic said: In my opinion, time limit does not apply well in this game, because one major element of this game is making alliances with other players. This means that you need to bargain with other players and this can take time. I agree wholeheartedly.
  14. Alternately, if I were to start some kind of petition to show FFG there was a big enough fanbase to market such a product, how many people would be willing to sign it? Ideally it would include the following Arryn components: Footmen Knights Ships Siege Engines Power Tokens (+1 to Mark the Eyrie as Arryn) Victory marker supply barrel influence track icons player screen Eyrie home area defense marker If enough people were interested in buying such a product I don't see why FFG wouldn't make a collectors' item out of it like the arkham horror minatures, right?
