Game of Thrones game
The hit series Game of Thrones has so far had little luck with its own video games. A new release on Steam changes that now.
“Game of Thrones” game on Steam delights fans
The world of the hit series Game of Thrones is actually made for a video game. Numerous developers have already tried to make the bloody world of Westeros playable. However, the results were rather mixed.
A new game on Steam finally seems to have had success. A Game of Thrones: The Board Game is actually just a board game that can now also be played on the PC. The mixture of conquest campaigns like in Risk and the spinning of intrigues still manages to perfectly depict the most important elements of the series.
The new game lets you conquer Westeros
The board game is based on the books and lets you re-enact the war of the five kings. Your task is to conquer Westeros. To do this, you have to manage your limited resources, assemble your armies and use familiar characters to achieve victory.
86 percent of the user reviews on Steam are positive. The developer Dire Wolf is praised for adapting the board game so well for the PC. There is also a detailed tutorial that brings you closer to the more complex game mechanics. However, it is criticized that players who do not continue a round without leaving the lobby cannot be removed.
If you’d rather try the original board game, you can buy it here on Amazon. If you’re still in the mood for a fantastic Game of Thrones game afterward, you can also try the A Game of Thrones mod for Crusader Kings 2.
