As this is the last A Game of Thrones: The Card Game World Championship, we are suitably going all out with the prizes to honor this game's treasured legacy and its incredible community. You can fully commemorate your experience with participation prizes, placement prizes, side event prizes, and a massive amount of blind bags that contain a wide array of new promotional cards, which are previewed below.

But seeing is believing, and there is much to see. It's time to take a look at the prizes you can win.
Throughout these prize previews, you will see a Blind Bag icon (seen below as an example) denoting how many blind bags are rewarded for that level of participation or placement. Each of these blind bags contains three promotional cards total, including two "commons" and one "rare." Check out an assortment of the commons you can get below, including Varys, Littlefinger, and Barring the Gates, but there are many, many more commons available, like Catelyn Stark, The Hound, Victarion Greyjoy, Late Summer Feast, and Fallen From Favor! Trade with other players for your favorite cards or try to complete the entire collection!
As previously mentioned, in each blind bag you will find two commons and one rare card. You can see some of the rare cards below, including Melisandre, The High Sparrow, and Rattleshirt. When you open a blind bag, you may also discover other rare cards that aren't shown, such as Salladhor Saan, Yoren, Arianne Martell, Randyll Tarly, and Daenerys Targaryen. A handful of players may even come across everyone's favorite baker, Hot Pie. While extremely rare, when he is found, Hot Pie will guide you to a very special, secret reward.
At the A Game of Thrones: The Card Game World Championship, this feast of prizes begins properly with a spread of fantastic participation prizes. To start, players will be given a set of one of the characters below, like Desert Raider, Bolton Flayer, and Scheming Septon, based on their chosen faction, with one exception: players who are using The Free Folk agenda will instead be given a set of Wildling Scouts.
When it comes to rewarding any faction-based prizes for this event, any players who use The Free Folk agenda will be specifically rewarded with wildling-themed prizes, no matter their faction card. For any of the faction-based rewards detailed below, you may treat The Free Folk agenda also as its own wildling faction.
Continuing with the participation prizes, each player will also be given a black t-shirt showcasing the House Botley coat of arms, along with a special playmat that's perfect to commemorate your World Championship experience. We encourage using this playing surface as a canvas to collect the names or signatures of your friends or foes. Finally, players will be given one blind bag for each round they play and one additional blind bag for each win throughout the main event!
On top of receiving a set of the Melee title cards, Melee participants will also be given three blind bags for each round they play, and two additional bags for each table they win. Then, those four players who make their way to the final Melee table will also be awarded with a playmat illustrating the iconic small council chamber. Finally, the one player who secures victory at the last table will win a one-of-a-kind Melee playmat and a full playset of dragon egg cards, branded with the title of 2019 Melee World Champion.
Hand of the King and Kingsmoot
Through the Hand of the King and Kingsmoot side events, you can gain playsets of these unique variants while also gaining extra rewards! Those who partake in either of these side events will be rewarded with two blind bags for each round, and one extra blind bag for each win. Then, each player who wins a Kingsmoot side event will seize the playmat below and receive an alternate art set of the fearsome Targaryen card, Dracarys!
Day 2 and Top of Faction
Those players who prove their fortitude on the field of battle and make the Day 2 cut will be rewarded with one of each of the faction-centric plot cards below, like The Long Plan, Wardens of the North, and Fury of the Khalasar. Representing the wildlings is Vanquish the Unbelievers, a natural plot inclusion for those running that highly aggressive agenda. Separately, the top player per faction for Joust Day 1A and Day 1B will be rewarded with a beautiful deckbox made of wood and leather, featuring a strong self-locking magnetic closure.
The Top 32 players per faction during Joust Day 1A and Day 1B will receive a playset of one of the character cards below, like Tormund Giantsbane, Gunthor Son of Gurn, or Maester Aemon. Then, players who are able to make the Top 32 overall cut on Day 2 will walk away with a premium token bag featuring the eight main factions of A Game of Thrones: The Card Game. These players who place within the Top 32 overall will also be rewarded with five additional blind bags.
During Joust Day 1A and Day 1B, the Top 16 players per faction will be rewarded with a playset of one of the character cards below, such as Maege Mormont, Randyll Tarly, and Gorold Goodbrother, depending on their chosen faction. Separately, those players who make the Top 16 overall cut during the elimination rounds on Day 2 will be awarded with eight additional blind bags.
Faction loyalty is further rewarded with this prize tier. For both Day 1A and Day 1B of the main event, the Top 8 players of each faction will receive one of the gorgeous playmats below. These players, who have fought well on behalf of their faction, will also be rewarded with an additional 10 blind bags!
The Top 4 players per faction for both Joust Day 1A and Day 1B will secure for themselves a set of 15 wooden power tokens, featuring their chosen faction's sigil. Then, during the elimination rounds on Day 2, the Top 4 overall players will have their incredible performance rewarded with one of the few House Botley deckboxes made of wood and leather, featuring a strong self-locking magnetic closure. The Top 4 overall players will also receive 15 additional blind bags!
At last, the Champion prize tier. The one player who overcomes the combined forces of the other factions, in the end, will be rewarded with a one-of-a-kind playmat featuring an illustration of Cersei Lannister by Cassandre Bolan, suitably drawn from the You Win or You Die plot card. In addition to every other reward earned along the path to claiming victory, this player will also walk away with an alternate art playset of Daenerys Targaryen's full-grown dragons: Drogon, Rhaegal, and Viserion. To top it all off, the A Game of Thrones: The Card Game World Champion will also be given 30 additional blind bags and a unique trophy (not pictured) denoting their amazing achievement!
