Ravens from the Campaign

by

A Song of Ice & Fire Tabletop Miniatures Game

As far as CMON Kickstarter campaigns go, A Song of Ice & Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game has had what seems like a mountain of information to digest.  Not only do the updates have the usual stretch goals, optional buys, etc. but they also have articles on tactics, how to play the game, and so on.

This doesn’t mean that the game will be hard to play, in fact it’s quite the opposite.  All the rules you need fit onto a single card.  Still, trying to keep track of what kinds of units are available, what they can do, and how you can organize them all while working and dealing with kids can be a bit much.  If you’re like me there’s a bit of “I know I’m buying some cool stuff, but I won’t fully grok it all until after it arrives.”

Fear not, you have come to the right place!  Here you’ll find all the information and links you may need consolidated into one page.  We’ll be doing our best to not only keep this page updated throughout the remainder of the campaign, but also to fill in the gaps from the last week.  So, keep checking back, and as always: “When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die.”
