Simplicity Rating

Play time: 15-30 minutes | Players: 2-4 (best with 4) | For ages: 14+

Being the ruler of Westeros has its drawbacks (a high rate of assassination being the biggie) but the hand of the king is second in command and far less likely to be stabbed in the back! This board game for two to four players sees everyone fighting for the coveted position during a grand feast attended by the major house from Game of Thrones. Can you win the allegiance of houses such as Stark, Greyjoy, Lannister, Targaryen, Tyrell and Baratheon and become the hand of the king?

At the start of the game, King's Landing is laid out before the players and randomly populated with 36 characters from the great houses. The key to winning Hand of the King is Varys, the Master of Whispers. Each turn, players can move Varys around the board, claiming characters that belong to each house. The player with the most characters from a particular house can claim that house's banner and place it in their own play area. Though of course, as the game goes on, these banners can swap between players depending on who has the most characters from a house loyal to them.

This opens up a huge layer of strategy that encourages players to form allegiances and break them at the best opportunity. But be careful about who you betray, as there are other cards in play that can drastically alter the game! For example, anyone who plays Sandor Clegane can send The Hound onto the board to permanently kill off another character. Similarly, you could play Ramsay Snow, who can switch the positions of any two characters in king's Landing. These and twelve other companion cards can change the game in your favour or completely dash your hopes of winning. Are you ruthless enough to become the hand of the king?
