Chen & Craig played the Lannister's while Bob & I were the Starks. Each of the units have special abilities, as well various leaders & commanders can add further bonus's to units they are with.
There are objectives scattered around the board, which if a unit touches them provides some sort of bonus. I must say I am not a fan of all the cards on the table though. Perhaps a numbered sideboard, with the cards on a matching field to that of a numbered objective token.
My Stark Outriders advance with Greywind. There are several actions a unit may perform. The unit bases are well displayed with arc markers & the front facing arrow.
The Mountain charges & kills Greywind. This guy is insane, as all his hits cannot be defended against.
Robb Stark & Jaime Lannister meet (top right) The Stark's initially had a flank attack.
The Lannisters remnants then turned & attacked.
The game goes until one side earns 12 VP, however due to the store needing to close & us having to clean up, we were unable to finish. The Lannisters had 7VP to the Stark's 4.
One last look at the Mountain!
The figures were very nice, their movement trays well thought out (notice the finger dents to aid in picking them up.
Thanks George for bringing this out. There was a lot to digest in regards to abilities & such, but I do look forward to more games of this system.
I arrived home to discover a parcel awaiting me....my Terrain Crate has arrived! However due to the lateness, I wasn't about to open everything & truth be told, all the stuff I got can be seen on the Kickstarter page.
