A Song of Ice and Fire drop in
Come and try out an exciting new game from CMON. "A Song of Ice and Fire :- the miniatures game" is a quick playing large battle system. It has some very basic and easy to remember rules, great miniatures with quick resolutions, but is also deep in tactical and strategic options galore due to a hand of faction specific cards. The game also has unique tactics board where non combat characters fight for position in the court of the King which adds flavor in the form of some behind the scenes back stabbing (in true Game of thrones fashion).

This setup will be for anyone interested in trying out the system and for those who just want to get a quick game in. We will be running 2 games side by side on the same table. One will be a fully painted battle pitching the stubborn north men from house Stark vs the proud but scheming House Lannister forces. Another table will be showing off the game (in its pure unpainted form) to anyone who wants to just stop by and try it out for themselves without commitment to stay.
