Dire Wolf Digital and HBO has announced a new board game and it sounds pretty cool. The Game of Thrones: Oathbreaker board game is described as being a social deduction game of ambition and deceit for 5-8 players.
One player claims the Iron Throne while the others play as any of 12 Lords and Ladies of the great houses of Westeros, scheming for the King’s favor, for power, or to bring a dynasty to its knees.
Loyalists square off against traitorous conspirators in a game where secret agendas intertwine, and only the wise can tell allies from enemies.
Here are the details:
- 5-8 Players
- North America Release Date: Spring 2019
- For Ages 14+
- Playing Time: 30-45 minutes
- MSRP: $35
- 2 Double-sided game boards
- 6 Double-sided character boards
- 6 House Sigils
- Hand of the King emblem
- 60 Reward cubes
- 125 Cards
- 33 Oversized mission cards
- Order, Chaos, and Round trackers
With the board game coming to tabletops just in time for the final season the Game of Thrones, this sounds like a great way to pass the time in between the agonising wait between episodes.
