      Long time RISK fan, always played the original with my brothers until we got Lord of the Rings RISK. That was great, but Game of Thrones RISK just adds so much more to just the roll the dice and invade. The addition of Character Cards and Maester Cards just adds a whole new level to the tactical advantages you can amass!

            I am a heavy risk player and when I found out that this one was coming out I was super excited. It definetly lived up to it's hype though a little unbalanced at times, house rules can even out the playing field and make the game fun for all players.

                Great game. Fun to play and easy to learn, especially if you have ever played a Risk game before. Takes a little while to play but is a great time killer during the winter months haha.

                My husband loves to play risk and is a Game of Thrones fanatic, so I knew this would be a hit. I usually sit out the Risk games but even I couldn't resist this one. The only con is it turns my husband into Tywin Lannister. ;)

                        Very fun to play. It's our new favorite version of risk. Only con is the quality of the cards. The ink rubs off and when you first open the deck the cards are stuck together.

                        Comments about this product:

                        I've played this game ~10 times with a group of different folks, ranging from 4 players to 7 players.

                        Things I love:
                        * This game adds cool new features (more below) to classic RISK. As one friend put it, it's harder for someone to take a commanding lead in this edition, and it encourages players to assume they always stand a serious chance at winning.
                        * New game mechanics include character cards (specific to each House), and maester cards (similar to development cards from Settlers of Catan). These lead to new strategies - I won't spoil anything, suffice it to say that it seems optimal play for different for each House.
                        * As a Game of Thrones fan, it's super cool to play in Westeros (and Essos). If nothing else, the board serves as a neat map of the GoT world.

                        Things I don't love:
                        * So many parts of this game just feel lopsided, often for the sake of squeezing in a few more Game of Thrones references. Even the player pieces (which include pieces specific to each House) are of remarkably different quality.
                        * One aspect of the game is the Seat of Power - a territory unique to each house. The Starks are set on Winterfell, as an example. However, the spacing of these Seats of Power is determined by Game of Thrones lore, which means that they're imbalanced for game play. If you're playing "by the book," don't be surprised to see that the same Houses win time after time.
                        * There's a HUGE variation in character cards that makes some Houses effectively play without them, while others will be using theirs each turn.
                        * Some parts of the game feel unfinished. As an example, the rule book isn't even consistent on what some "special units" do. One piece will either increase your (six-sided) defense die's value, or allow you to roll an eight-sided die on defense, depending on what you section you reference.
                        * A character card allows you to roll all eight-sided die while attacking. Except the game only shipped with two red (attacking) eight-sided die. (And yes, we're smart enough to work around this, but frustrating that we *have to* in a game that cost so much)
                        * In general, the maester and objective cards aren't really balanced for their cost/difficulty. Some things will be incredibly cheap with an incredibly big payoff, while others simply don't justify their cost.

                        My friends and I love this game. Really. But we've found ourselves trying different house rules to make it more fun and fair for everyone. The good news is that this works - some house rules fix major issues we've found. The bad news is that we've found that we have to design our own rules for a game that cost nearly a hundred dollars (including shipping).

                          I am a lifelong Risk player and love this game more than any others. I loved Lord of the Rings Risk but now Game of Thrones is my favorite TV show ever and this new version blows LOTR Risk out of the water. This is an exciting game that allows you to play a simple version right away and then allows you to add other elements as you learn them. It is the most flexible version of Risk yet. It makes you feel like you are part of the Game of Thrones!

                            I just wish the board and cards were made to last longer then 10 play throughs. I take very good care of my games and have never encountered this before. I felt it was very sloppily made. That being said the game play was refreshing and new compared to standard risk. I wish there was another player like the dothraki in essos simply because the Ghiscari conquer essos too easily. Other than that tho this game is a ton of fun to play and I would recommend to a friend.

                              Fantastically fun, some complex rules but if you have played alternate versions of classic Risk they won't be difficult to understand. Currency adds a fun new tactic to master.
