Set Your Plots in Motion

The Event Schedule for Days of Ice and Fire 2013 Is Now Online

Better a kingsmoot than a war. “I believe I’ll kiss the Damphair’s smelly feet and pluck the seaweed from out between his toes.” Asha wrenched loose her dirk and sheathed it once again. “A bloody kingsmoot!” “On Old Wyk,” confirmed Lord Rodrik. “Though I pray it is not bloody. I have been consulting Haereg’s History of the Ironborn. When last the salt kings and the rock kings met in kingsmoot, Urron of Orkmont let his axemen loose among them, and Nagga’s ribs turned red with gore. House Greyiron ruled unchosen for a thousand years from that dark day, until the Andals came.” Register Now for A Weekend of Exciting Events:

  • Open Play and Demos for all of FFG's Westeros-themed games
  • Developer Q&A seminars
  • An A Game of Thrones: The Card Game Regional Championship Tournament
  • An A Game of Thrones: The Board Game Second Edition Tournament, featuring a never-before-seen scenario

      –George R.R. Martin, A Feast for Crows

The last time the lords and ladies of the realm met in our hallowed hall, generations-old rivalries erupted in a flurry of heated competition. Now, a new kingsmoot has been called, and once again we are called to gather. What dire fate does this summons foretell?

Last week, we announced Days of Ice and Fire 2013, a weekend devoted to FFG’s Westeros-themed games and the beloved novels from which they are derived. April 12th–14th, you are invited to join us at the Fantasy Flight Games Event Center in Roseville, MN for three days of gaming in the Seven Kingdoms; and now, you can plot your weekend with the full event schedule (pdf, 1.4 MB)!

A Weekend in Westeros

Many attendees are sure to participate in our Regional Championship Tournament for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game; competitors will have a chance to become an A Game of Thrones: The Card Game Regional Champion, which is the first step toward becoming the World Champion. What’s more, these contenders compete for an assortment of Regional-exclusive championship prizes! Note: This year, Regionals will wrap up on Sunday morning, so please plan accordingly.

Even if you don’t plan to participate in the LCG’s Regional Championship Tournament, there is plenty to experience at Days of Ice and Fire 2013. Kick off the weekend with a learn to play session for any of our Westeros-themed board games, or meet developer Jason Walden for a discussion of the upcoming POD expansion for A Game of Thrones: The Board Game Second Edition before joining in on Saturday’s tournament. Want a break from board and card gaming? Put your knowledge of Westeros to the test (and win great prizes) with Saturday’s Trivia Contest!
