    Oh my… CMON combines with Game of Thrones to finally break Kickstarter I assume.

    Just an announcement so far, but still.

    There is some more information here in this “Watch it Played” report from GAMA, including a trailer for the game.

    I like the look of the miniature designs. The “realistic” style is right up my alley.

    It looks like they’re creating a competitor to Runewars by FFG with the figure trays.

    Runewars requires a large a play area, larger than the space I have and I suspect Song this will too.

    Plus I never read the books and got bored of the TV series within three episodes… I don’t watch a show when I don’t care if the characters live or die and that was the case with Thrones… they were all scum.

    So I think it unlikely I will show any interest in this game.

    And there goes Wrath of Kings… support for the game was spotty at best from CMON. Now with this potential monster game, WoK might just wither away… 🙁

    @ CK Lai – that is exactly what I was thinking about WoK when I read about Song of Ice and Fire!!

    Thankfully I managed to build a small community in my area… we are happy to play with what we have now, so that’s all right 😀

    The game system is still solid.

    At least WoK is a fantasy milieu with some originality. I’m sick and tired of everything having to be attached to an IP. The golden days of originality and creativity in game world-building are becoming a distant memory.

    The miniatures look good, but this is going to be very ‘straight’ fantasy, with only a bit of giants, undead, and perhaps a dragon to throw in.

    Can’t say I’m particularly excited.

    Not sure if the future of WoK is worse because of this. Looks to me that WoK is more fantasy on a skirmish level and the new one is more mass combat with mosttly human units…but info is still a bit vague at this point…so we will see.

    By the way…did FFG not have this Battle for Westeros game with which this would collide more?

    Used to be Battlelore, then became Westeros and now back to Battlelore I think.

    Not sure if Westeros still supported.

    @8th : nope. All BattleLore titled games have been (seemingly) killed over at FFG despite them owning the IP.

    I really wish FFG would’ve kept Battlelore as an intro to their Runewars miniatures game and made the minis able to crossover both games. Sigh.

    Wasn’t it only last year that they re-released Battlelore?

    I smell Asmodee involvement. “Get rid of existing IP so we can sell more new games.”

    @8th: Battlelore 2nd Ed was released in 2013.

    But it still doesn’t make sense. Battlelore can be a Runewars Lite… then move up to Runewars by getting a starter set and you can still re-use the Battlelore 2.0 minis.

    But what do I know… I’m not running the world’s largest board game company 😉
