“It’s the family name that lives on. It’s all that lives on” – Tywin Lannister

HBO series Game of Thrones, in collaboration with Warner Bros. Gaming brought out this game to fulfil the fantasy that we have all lived i.e., to play the Game of Thrones in Westeros.

Westeros is at war. Great houses clash, Dragons rule the sky, and the Army of the Dead threatens the realm.  Live out your fantasy and join this war.  Build your house and raise your army as you navigate a dangerous political landscape.  Based on the award-winning HBO series, Game of Thrones: Conquest allows players to become a Lord in Westeros and define a strategy for conquering the Seven Kingdoms. Winter is here and your enemy’s army will not wait to clash swords.  Wage war and join the battle today to capture the Iron Throne!

“Fight every battle everywhere, always, in your mind. Everyone is your enemy, everyone is your friend.” – Petyr Baelish

Master the innovative social system that allows players to recruit bannermen, fight wars alongside your allies, and live out your fantasy of ruling The Seven Kingdoms.

Claim the Iron Throne – In a dynamic political world, choose between deception and loyalty as you shift your allegiances.

Reward those loyal to you with titles like Hand of the King and Master of Coin as you build your Small Council.

Bestow Seats of Power to your allies granting them special military and economic advantages.

The map is set with all the houses namely, The Starks, Tullys, Greyjoys, Lannisters, Baratheons, Night’s watch but the Targaryen’s are not mentioned instead in Dragonstone Stannis’s Sigil is shown. Also it is shown that we form a house and Daenerys comes every now and then to instruct and praise on every level up and she appoints Tyrion to guide the player as a witty hand is required. Its clear that we shall support Daenerys claiming her throne at the King’s Landing. We can design our own sigil and own family name, create alliances and kick some ass. I have not reached such a high level yet I seem to enjoy the battles with my Liege and bannermen. Also if you are in a liege and loyal to the leader then you get to be the Hand of the King, Master of Coins etc. which can be used to rise in power. Also when you feel that you can overpower your own allegiance leader you can come out and attack so that you may become the leader.

However, like every other game it has its cons.

The game depends only on the levels of the house and the level of the creature/the enemy house. Its alright to keep in mind the level of enemy house but creatures like bear, coyote, boar , I personally think that the number of troops also should have some I had to march my entire army to defeat these creatures. The militia or the footmen, well equipped footmen would be enough to do the job but you need to deploy an entire army to defeat them. Also if that boar, coyote is of level 30 then its almost impossible to defeat them. To kill these creatures I had to deploy 70 footmen, 50 Slingers, 30 Long bow archers and much more whereas 5 longbow archer should be enough to kill such creatures.

The game really fulfils the fantasy of being a part of Westeros, rising a Westerosi army and claim the Iron Throne. To set an example the famous place as you all know is held by House Mormont, well not anymore in the game.
