Game of Thrones: A Digital Edition board Game takes place after the death of King Robert Baratheon during the first novel A Song of Ice and Fire, and it can be played by a group of up to six players. There is also an opportunity to play against the artificial intelligence of the game, which takes on the role of one of the Great Houses of the Seven Kingdoms. Like the novels and the HBO adaptation of Game of Thrones, Game of Thrones: A Digital Edition Board Game revolves around who will take the Iron Throne and take control of Westeros. The game offers many options to achieve this goal, including conquest by brute force, forming alliances or cunning coercion of others. Since its release in 2020, DLC has been added focused on later books in the series, such as “Feast for Crows” and “Dance with Dragons”.
Both the original Game of Thrones board game from Fantasy Flight Games and the Asmodee Digital adaptation for PC were highly appreciated by fans of strategy board games, which makes the Epic Games offer even more attractive to players. The game’s plot seems to have caught up with the “Game of Thrones” novels, and 2011’s “Dance with Dragons” is currently the last published novel in this series. However, it remains to be seen whether “Game of Thrones: Board Game – Digital Edition” will wait for the last two novels or whether it will decide to continue the story through DLC, regardless of the controversial HBO TV adaptation.
