ThinkGeek.com, my favorite purveyor of geeky items, had this gem among their annual collection of April Fools items. I kinda wish it was real haha.

Check it out!

Well that stinks... apparently either Hasbro or whoever owns the Game of Thrones sent a cease and desist letter to them Sad

But you can see it here in all it's glory... for now anyway Smile

So it was real. Looks like they just got a little too close to Hasbro's plans. But they shouldn't have been pulled ...

I do like the quality of this board, and the idea of playing with different characters. It's sort of like having a Master Detective game, where you omit rooms, weapons and characters to change it to a regular game of Clue. Too bad they didn't provide additional weapons to offer the same kind of optional complexity on the flip side game with 11 rooms. I suppose with extra suspect cards, it wouldn't be too hard to add extra weapons to the game, and temporarily tape on the additional weapons to the cards.

It also comes with intrigue cards, and "clock" cards, and special power cards, which I have always seen as optional additions since they were introduced in DTS, so they make no difference to me. I'd be surprised if those cards had any intrinsic contribution to the gameplay, aside from slowing it down.

Wait, so this is a brand new complete edition, or just the extra characters and weapons to add to your existing game?

I assume you have the original game?

While I agree you have a problem, it’s one we all share. Unfortunately we’re the opposite of a support group here, we’re an enabler group!

It is just an expansion with fancier looking weapons tokens and two new characters. I do have the original.
