Announcing the 2016 World Champion Deck for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game


The realm needs a strong Hand. Joff will not come of age for years. No one wants war again, least of all me.” Her hand touched his face, his hair. "If friends can turn to enemies, enemies can become friends. Your wife is a thousand leagues away, and my brother has fled. Be kind to me, Ned. I swear to you, you shall never regret it.”
–George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the 2016 World Championship Deck for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game!
