What is a Living Card Game?
A Living Card Game™ (LCG™) breaks away from the traditional Collectible Card Game (CCG) model by offering a fixed card distribution method. It offers the same dynamic customizable, expanding, and constantly evolving game play that makes CCG’s fun, but without the blind buy purchase model that can burn out players. The end result is an innovative mix that gives you the best of both worlds!
High lords and fabled champions had come from all over the realm to compete, and the whole city had turned out to watch. [...] The days had rung to the sounds of trumpets and pounding hooves, and the nights had been full of feasts and song.
–A Song of Ice and Fire, Volume II: A Clash of Kings
