The Hand of the King Tournament is Sunday, April 17th
A Game of Thrones LCG | Published 15 April 2011

”The Hand of the King was the second-most powerful man in the Seven Kingdoms. He spoke with the king’s voice, commanded the king’s armies, drafted the king’s laws. At times he even sat upon the Iron Throne to dispense king’s justice, when the king was absent, or sick, or otherwise indisposed. Robert was offering him a responsibility as large as the realm itself.”
-A Game of Thrones, George R. R. Martin

The Chosen Few

To read about the eight chosen participants’ deckbuilding strategies as well as commentary from the staff proxies, read the A Contest of Heroes article, and make sure to watch the A Game of Thrones website for a full write-up from the winning deck’s creator after the event.

Can your Hand of the King aid you as you battle for control of the Iron Throne? Find out at the Hand of the King Tournament, this Sunday, April 17th!
