Defend Westeros From the Wildlings In A Game of Thrones Catan
The board of the latest version of Catan should look familiar to Game of Thrones fans. It’s been relocated to Westeros, where players of the popular settlement-building game are tasked with defending the Seven Kingdoms from invading wildlings.
According to Mashable, the new Game of Thrones version of Catan takes a slightly different approach to the classic gameplay. All players are members of the Night's Watch, and their goal is to develop the land south of the Wall. But wildlings can breach the Wall, stealing resources from players as the game progresses. To win, players must strategically strengthen the Wall to keep out hostile forces while developing land fast enough to be the first person to earn 10 victory points. Players can also depend on characters from the George R.R. Martin series for help, including Samwell Tarly, Jeor Mormont, and Bowen Marsh.
Boxes of A Game of Thrones Catan: Brotherhood of the Watch are available in limited quantities and can be pre-ordered for $80 apiece before shipping early February. Pop culture-themed Catan spin-offs are rare, but not unheard of—prior to this, the brand released a Star Trek version set in deep space.
