The Living Card Game format allows players to customize their gaming experience with monthly Chapter Pack expansions to the core game.
Got a friend who's a huge dragon and maester fan. He'll be pretty psyched about this chapter. And me too!
i'm super bummed.... i was (and chaOs) hoping to bring back a version of Jaqen H'ghar when i win Gen Con next year haha!!! Oh well, back to the drawing boards!
It seems that we are still waiting for the release of Dreadfort Betrayal. So is that too much ahead of time? Maybe we will need 2-3 months to get this new pack.
Looking forward to a new Jaqen too. I just hope this one will not get banned also
Hm, feels like it's missing a per-round limit. Will make things frustrating even for Targ attachment hate. Anyhow, great plot for a maester deck with the new agenda. Also really looking forward to the new Shadows Jaqen.
2 plots in a row that basically let you play a card for free. Wonder if thats the Maesters 'thing'...
Nice I am becoming more and more interested in building a Maesters deck.
