I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.
  • Wow, that can’t be a cheap IP to work with. I hope they do ti justice ๐Ÿ™‚

      George R. R. Martin is one of us (gamer). He even provides prize support to Gencon’s painting competition.

      The main thing that keeps properties out of games is that IP owners expect more up front than the gaming industry can provide (toys and film tend to pay a lot more up front than gaming).

      George gets final say, and he has clearly prioritized letting these games happen- hence we have seen GoT in gaming so much.

    I am one of the few that thinks Game of Thrones is complete trash. However, I like George RR Martin, and not because he’s just a gamer.
    Shots fired, I know.

      The IP is a solid ‘meh’ for myself, and don’t really get the fascination with a fantasy world without much ‘fantasy’ in it.
      It’s a definite pass for me based on the IP alone. There’s just not enough fantasy for me – I like to paint monsters and non-humans and the GoT universe just doesn’t have enough of that to hold my interest.

      • KelRiever

        Maybe there will be an exceptional amount of dying in the game. You know, the ultimate appeal of GoT to fans everywhere. And gore cards you can play. I mean, let’s talk about what makes GoT unique, right? The goal of the game could be how much you shock another player by killing off his favorite miniature in the most mundane and horrific way possible. Like dying of dysentery, or perhaps during child birth.
        No, come on, this could work! ๐Ÿ˜‰

        • PRAY FOR MOJO

          What makes GoT unique, eh? I wonder how sexposition, rape and incest will fit into the miniatures game.

      • BDub

        Fair enough, thats why there is a distinction in literature between High-Fantasy and Low-Fantasy. And you must admit, miniatures games are a bit crowded in the High-Fantasy area, so this at least, has a place, and possibly a chance. YMMV

        • odinsgrandson

          Most fantasy authors have left the Tolkienesque sword and sorcery roots far behind. Big six publishers almost won’t touch a book about Dwarves and Elves.

          In gaming we are stuck on Sword and Sorcery fantasy- we still have a thousand flavors of Middle Earth dominating the field- Greyhawk, the Old World, Faerun, Krynn, Mystara, Terrinoth, Tamriel, Thedas, etc. We get excited when someone adds steampunk elements to it or reskins gnomes, orcs and elves.

          Westeros has appeal in gaming because it doesn’t fit in that well- the treatment is almost historical in style. There are plenty of monsters and dragons, though.

          Honestly, I’d love to see something WAY out there like the Stormlight Archive get some miniatures representation.

      AGOT is a lot of things but “complete trash” is not one of them. Sadly in the internet era everyone communicates via hyperbole & overreaction, so there’s that.

      • KelRiever

        A legitimate opinion is not hyperbole. Either I hurt your feelings or you mistook what I said for a fact, which it obviously is not.
        Trash. I said trash. You can disagree, but I said exactly what I meant, and no, you are not inside my head. ๐Ÿ™‚
