The Second Edition of A Game of Thrones: The Card Game still has a long road ahead of it to catch up to the amount of content that was released for it's predecessor. However, fans can agree that the streamlined rules of the second edition breathe new life into the long-running series and the steady release of new content for it is just as fresh as ever. That is why it's exciting news that the fifth big expansion, Sands of Dorne, is available now. As described by it's announcement on Fantasy Flight Games' website: "In the southernmost reach of Westeros lie the sweltering deserts of Dorne. Under the rule of House Martell, this region stands separate from the rest of the Seven Kingdoms, divided geographically by imposing mountain ranges, and culturally by an indomitable spirit and a thirst for vengeance. Today, you have your chance to join them." This new expansion brings many hallmarks of the deserts of Dorne, House Martell, and the Sand Snakes to the intense tactical mechanics of the card game. The theme of these cards embellish patience and whittling down opponents over time, even when things aren't going your way. Featuring more of the incredible second edition artwork and attractive new strategies with existing cards, the new expansion is a great addition for fans and new players alike.
