Hand of the King

It's Saturday. That means it's the weekend. That means I'm happy. Went grocery shopping this morning to get ingredients to make turkey soup as well as this year's fruitcake. Still need to get one last thing (that has its own theme song for the activity of getting it). That'll start getting ready today, while the final assembly will be tomorrow. What to do in the meantime? Maybe put together some Kingdom Death and play some Guild Ball. Also, give you the reviews you so desperately desire.

Today we have: Terraforming Mars, Adrenaline, Rubicon Models Panzer III, Star Wars Dobble (AKA - Spot It), Lord of the Rings The Card Game, Captain Sonar, Planet Rush, Fight for Olympus, Rollet, and A Game of Thrones: Hand of the King.

The king is having a feast. It will be the most grand feast anyone can ever remember. At this feast, he will be picking a new Hand, the person who will help with everyday running of the kingdom and be his most trusted advisor. You want to be in that position. Of course, you're not the only one. So you'll have to be shrewd, not waste a moment to back-stab an opponent, and get help from Varys, the Master of Whispers. That's the story behind Hand of the King, the new card game available from Fantasy Flight Games.
Don't lose your heads (or... other body parts...), but Fantasy Flight Games has announced a new card game based on A Game of Thrones. It's called Hand of the King and it pits the various houses of Westeros against one-another in order to become the real power behind the throne as the king looks to select a new Hand.
