Battle of the Trident Outcome
Saturday and Sunday we held two Battle of the Trident tournaments for the Game of Thrones LCG. On Saturday Marv took first place with Jeremy taking first place on Sunday. Marv voted for Knights and Jeremy voted for Maesters.
A Game of Thrones: The Card Game invites you to pledge your loyalty to one of eight houses and stake your claim to the Iron Throne. How you blaze your path to the throne is up to you, be it through military might with swords drawn, from pulling the hidden strings of intrigue, or by making a play for power.
The Battle of the Trident is a special opportunity to rise to the challenges of your opponents and offers another choice to its combatants. The outcome of the Battle of the Trident will not only further your campaign to sit atop the Iron Throne, but will also play a part in deciding the fate of A Game of Thrones: The Card Game.
Decide the Game’s Path
The Trident is a massive river flowing through Westeros, which branches into three forks. Each fork leads to a different destination, and it is that decision which will prove most crucial. Cast your vote for which fork will be followed and which of three Agenda cards will be published in a future expansion.
The Blue Fork, named for the purity of its waters, is a vote for the Knights of the Realm. The knights of the Seven Kingdoms come together under the banner of this agenda, which allows a player to include Knight characters from multiple factions in his or her deck.
The Red Fork, representing the blood of armies spilled on the battlefield, is a vote for A Call to Arms. The time for talk is over. Now it comes to war! The Army characters of multiple Great Houses and factions become the most prominent figures in The Game of Thrones when they combine their forces under this agenda.
The Green Fork, filled with mossy swamps, is a vote for The Conclave of the maesters. Is a maester loyal to his House, or do his loyalties lie with the Citadel? This agenda brings the Maesters of Westeros from multiple factions together in the pursuit of a unified cause.
While the exact game text of these Agenda cards has yet to be revealed, they will each have a significant impact on the environment of competition. When a player signs up for the tournament in-store, they will also check one of three boxes next to their name, to cast a vote for their favorite potential Agenda.
Those players who sign up and compete in a Battle of the Trident tournament will also receive a special promotional alternate art card. Summons is a Plot card that allows you to find the right character at the right time and is a likely inclusion in any future deck that features the winning Agenda cards.
