Ok... currently reading the first one, and watching the series. I don't have anything other then rough ideas set, I just thought I'd share my thoughts so far (also, if there's anyone who is familiar with the books, and is good at not spoiling people, this is a game that I'd like a cohost for, PM if you'd be interested).

So, like I said, I'm still on the first one, and once the store gets in the second, I'll be picking up the other 3, and the 5th as soon as it comes out. I have a few ideas on how I want to do it.

I'm thinking about cutting up each book, and making a separate game per one (ie, A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords, etc.). Now, that would result in 5 games being ready by the end of July, and an eventual 2 more. I think it would be interesting, and would make the story resemble the book where possible, but I also don't know if people would actually be interested in that many large games that are all connected like that. That would be my first choice, cause I think it would be epic, but if people don't like that idea, I could also see just taking the characters and some of the major plot ideas (race for the throne, the others, Dany preparing to take back the throne), and then not really following anything else as closely.

Anyways, let me know what you'd think would be the most fun, or if you have any other ideas for how it could be set up.

Hmm

I'm only watching the series unfortunately.. as I've decided if I read the books, I'll read them too fast and get spoiled.

But I'd love to offer ideas on the mechanics of the game... I like the idea of having a series of games linked together (Much like Secret Mafia w/ G-Man). But the problem becomes how to explain roles getting lynched if you want them to come back in the next game, i.e if Tyrian Lanister get's lynched game 1, he's obviously a major part of the show and hopefully a major part in the whole series, so where do you go from there?


GoT is all about politics, listening, learning, secrets, treaties, and backstabbing. If you want a successful GoT Mafia game, these have to be implemented somehow.
