“When the day comes that you raise your banners, half of Westeros will be with you,” Whitebeard promised. “Your brother Rhaegar is still remembered, with great love.”
Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of The Banners Gather, the first Chapter Pack of the new Kingsroad cycle for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game!
After two cycles of Chapter Packs that carried A Game of Thrones players far from the shores of Westeros, The Banners Gather returns to the Seven Kingdoms, its Great Houses, their lords, their banners, and their traditional strengths. In the Chapter Pack’s sixty new cards (three copies each of twenty individual cards), the Lannisters flaunt their wealth, the Greyjoys seize control of rival locations, and the Targaryens march forward with their attachments and Dragons. Likewise, the Baratheons, Starks, and Martells gain new Strongholds, Tactics, and tricks.
Of course, no House is strong when cut off from its supporters, and The Banners Gather takes a look at the many Bannerman characters who swear their fealty and service to their liege lords. Players will find several new characters with the Bannerman trait, all of whom bring powerful new abilities to their Houses and enable new synergies with the game’s older Bannerman cards.
Meanwhile, as the first Chapter Pack in the Kingsroad cycle, The Banners Gather marks a return to the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros and its traditions. It is a return to both the game’s classic fantasy themes and to several of its established mechanics. Over the course of its six Chapter Packs, players will find that the Kingsroad cycle is a familiar place, full of recognizable characters, locations, and themes, though each appears new, changed by their participation in the ongoing struggle for the Iron Throne!
