"Well, unfortunately, any kind of exposure indirectly helps ratings. Of course, nothing will boost ratings more than the show itself being good, but the more people that can be attracted to it, the better chance there is of their ratings staying high or (I'm sure) even increasing."

Well, I don't know anyone who would start watching/reading because they saw a direwolf iphone skin, but since your so doggedly determined that keychains are going to sell the show more effectively than something legitimate like word of mouth, I take it that's how you became a fan. You can have that one, I suppose.

"It sounds like you're still stubbornly defending the idea that he "sold out" without offering enough support for that claim. If you can somehow demonstrate that the literary quality sharply decreased after he shared his writing with other types of ventures, I'll believe it."

I understand you're a newbie to the ASoIaF world, and therefore a little late to the party. I've been there for the 8 years of blog posts about the Giants and Wildcards and of him hocking his latest piece of craphenalia in real time. You haven't. I don't get into this "I've been reading since before it was cool, so I'm better than you" rhetoric alot of the old guard seem to - that's silly - but it does give me better insight to the things we are discussing here than someone who just discovered these were books last summer.

I'm not going to sit here and go through with you every piece of merchandise until you are satisfied. In fact, I won't go through any of them with you other than the things I've already mentioned. It is apparent that you can only find your way to


I don't really have the inclination to get too involved in this so I just gave you the Amazon links. There's a star rating near the book titles. These ratings summarize the quality of the product listed. As you can see the first three books of the series have exceptional ratings: 4.5+ stars, but then starting with Feast and continuing through Dance (current) you see these drop down to 3 stars. There's your demonstration. I'm not going to continue to take you by the hand and point to things as obvious as this.

"There's the Cyanide's track record, which is mostly just a bunch of cycling-related games, and it's pretty clear from the post you linked that GRRM declined Cyanide at the time because he basically felt they were too amateur a studio to be able to do a good job on the game. Years later, (years!) this little company is still determined to do it, especially now that they've opened up another studio and hired enough people to pull the game off"

That's pretty bold to pass that off as fact based on the information in the blog post. We'll go ahead and chalk that up in the "good faith" and "benefit of the doubt" column.

"I think AFfC and ADWD should be considered special cases given what it took to write them."

I don't know exactly what you're intending with this, but no. It shouldn't.

u/editorfromhell · 0 pointsr/gameofthrones

This is the most awesome, well-thought out reply. The scope of my discussion has been mainly targeted for the screen translation.

I don't think these types of edits would make a better book. My list is too much of a "butchers cut", when a fine surgical tool could be used. But have no doubt, this still doesn't change the fact that this book is rated the lowest on this subreddit, as well as sites like amazon. I'll just leave this here:

OK, I did something a little different in this review. Soon there will be literally hundreds of reviews for this book, all giving similar reasons why people like or dislike A Feast For Crows. Instead of adding, and probably losing, my voice in amongst the clamour, I've done a bit of mathematics for you. I actually went through the book and noted which characters had chapters of their own and how many pages each of those chapters had, then I figured the numbers out as percentages (yes, I know, I need to get out more). So now, for your literary edification and illumination, I present to you a list of what actually happens in the book, according to my calculations (all rounded off).

CERCEI: 22.5%. That's right, folks, the Lannister Queen has more than one page in five, and nearly one page in four, devoted entirely to her point of view. If you've always wanted to know what goes on in her scheming little mind, then boy, do we have a show for you! Considering that there are thirteen people altogether who get chapter viewpoints of their own, Cercei's 22.5% share means that, on average, everyone else only gets 6.5% each. You could say that Cercei has the lion's share (terrible pun, I know).

BRIENNE: 17.5%. Next on our little list comes the Maid of Tarth. Most of the time we spend with her is on character development, rather than juicy action. Not that there's anything wrong with that at all, but you've been warned. If you were expecting her to become Lara Croft: Tomb Raider reborn, think again. Also, of some small statistical note, more than 60% of the pages in this book are devoted to the female character's points of view. Just so you know.

JAIME: 15.5%. The ever-more-interesting brother, and erstwhile lover, of Cercei continues in his evolution from out-and-out bad guy to, well, kind of a good guy. We're going to have to read the next book to see which way he jumps for sure, but so far he's certainly more inclined towards honesty and honour than he seemed to be in the first couple of books.

SAMWELL: 9%. The first character with less than ten percent of the ink investment is Sam. One of the more down-to-earth minor characters from the previous book, he gets fleshed out a little more here (excuse the pun).

SANSA: 8%. One of the few remaining Starks, and one of only two who get chapters of their own in this book, Sansa is also evolving as a character. In this book she is very slowly starting to show signs of an independence that she heretofore lacked. Of course, with only three chapters of her own, she doesn't show much. Not that she was ever on the front lines of either political intrigue or physical combat.

ARYA: 6% The only other person from House Stark with chapters from her own viewpoint. Arya has always been an interesting character to me. Her moral ambiguity, like Jaime's, is stretched further in this book. I'm a little nervous as to how she'll shape up in the end. At this point, it's a little difficult for me to tell, though I have optimistic expectations.

WHO? WHAT? HUH?: 21.5%. Seven people, some of whom are hardly mentioned, or not mentioned at all, in previous books, have their own chapter or two each in this book. So more than one page in five is from the viewpoint of someone you probably can't remember reading about before. And half the time the same viewpoint doesn't come up again in this book at all.

TYRION, JON, DAENERYS, STANNIS, DAVOS, ETC.: 0%. These characters don't appear at all. We have to tune in to the next episode for updates on their adventures. I wondered about this when I bought the book and saw that the maps at the front only showed Westeros.

So there you have it. If you're here reading reviews because you've gotten halfway through the book, don't like it, and want to see what everyone else thought, then I'd recommend that you keep reading. Slog through a few more pages; it does pick up at around the halfway mark. Although, in my mind, the endings for the various characters are fairly anticlimactic. Nothing is really resolved, unlike the previous books. And it's going to be the same for the next book, apparently, since Martin says that it will only focus on the characters who were expected to appear in this book but didn't.

I've given A Feast For Crows three stars, where the previous books in the series would have each earned at least four stars from me.

u/snarktastic_snowfox · 1 pointr/gameofthrones

I personally love GRRM's writing, repetitive phrases and all (and I wouldn't call myself an inexperienced reader at all). I am absolutely absorbed in the world he's created and I can safely say it's my second favorite series of all time.

But if it's recommendations you're after, I just started Joe Abercrombie's first book, "The Blade Itself." Very interesting so far in that you really aren't sure that you're cheering for any of the protagonists, and I hear the character development is sublime as the books progress.

Also, the Dresden Files (Jim Butcher) are my absolute favorite series. Talk about character development! He does a great job blending sci-fi and fantasy from all over and adds in some really likeable (and snarky!) characters.

And cheers to Redwall! I miss those books. :)

u/robdizzledeets · 1 pointr/gameofthrones

I also hear The First Law Trilogy by Joe Abercrombie is pretty genre breaking and similar to the "grittiness" of ASOIAF. I read the first chapter of Best Served Cold (not from the trilogy but same world) and liked it so far.

EDIT: (added link to Amazon) I would also like to plug The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson. I enjoyed the political maneuvering of Dalinar and his son, the 'fuck yeah' moments of Kaladin, the worldbuilding of Shallan's sketches and various interludes, the neat stormlight Lashing/soulcasting magic system, interesting pace, and overall excellent quality of the book. I don't think it had the same tone as Martin but I enjoyed it far more than Dance. Just my $.02!

Here's a recipe from A Feast of Ice and Fire: The Official Game of Thrones Companion Cookbook:

>Falling somewhere between cakes and cookies, these chewy lemon delights are both addictive and easy to make. They have an elegant simplicity and a delicate sweetness that renders them the ideal companions for afternoon tea, whether in London or King’s Landing.

> 2½ cups flour, plus more as needed;
2 cups granulated sugar;
> 6 tablespoons unsalted butter;
Grated zest from 2 lemons;
> 1 egg;
2 egg yolks;
> ⅓ cup confectioners’ sugar;
1½ teaspoons milk.

>Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease a large baking sheet;

>In a large bowl, combine the flour and granulated sugar. Cut in the butter, then add the zest and the whole egg and yolks. Mix thoroughly, adding more flour as needed, until the dough is no longer sticky and can be easily shaped by hand.

>Roll the dough into balls about 1 inch across and place them on the prepared baking sheet at least 2 inches apart, giving them room to spread as they bake.

>Bake for 15 minutes, until the tops are just slightly golden. Allow the cakes to cool for a minute before moving them to a cooling rack.

u/kaydiggity · 1 pointr/gameofthrones

If I had a 3D printer or a ton of money, I totally would've done that for the pieces, but all I could find on my low budget were those safari plastic toys and they looked just plain silly. I was going to buy Robb's sigil markers, but...they're $160 vs. $3, and look quite large, so in the end the wood pegs won out haha.

I kept the results of the cards the same as original Monopoly so that the game would remain balanced, but made them Game of Thrones themed - so [Spoilers S4/ASOS](#s "one of the Get Out of Jail Free cards is "You win trial by combat" with a picture of Tyrion, or "You're captured by the King in the North. Go directly to the dungeon" with a picture of Jaime in chains, or "You share information with Varys. Receive 25 Gold Dragons" with a picture of Varys.")

u/Exzilp · 9 pointsr/gameofthrones

This isn't an MMO, but if you didn't know there is a GoT board game that is a lot of fun. My housemates and I play it ever once in a while (it can last 5-7 hours) and love it.

u/thedarkwolf · 1 pointr/gameofthrones

Dunk and Egg are not as easy to get as I would like. They appear in anthologies: Legends, Legends II, and Warriors.

I saw them on Amazon, where you can buy the standalone graphic novels, but on Amazon, The Hedge Knight costs > $60 used. Better to get Legends for like $10.

I can give you links, might help:


Legends 2


u/CharlieKillsRats · 1 pointr/gameofthrones

Flip over to a history non-fiction. I highly recommend 1491 by Charles C Mann. Considered one of the best descriptions of pre-Columbus (and a some post) of the America's, its utterly an fascinating read for anyone with an interest in history or culture

u/famous_unicorn · 2 pointsr/gameofthrones

This sounds like great fun! I recently purchased A Feast of Ice and Fire because I wanted to try some different recipes. Take a look at the table of contents for food inspiration.

u/Lonestarr1337 · 7 pointsr/gameofthrones

Here's "the most complete" fan-made world map to date. GRRM said that, with the information we have from the books that are out, this is most likely the best a fan could come up with.

Looking for an official world map? George is releasing one this October!

Information dug up from this thread that was posted about 5 days ago. Hope that helps.

u/DJNimbus2000 · 19 pointsr/gameofthrones

They already have one, and its an amazing game. Admittedly it isn't Risk per se. I actually think that it plays better than Risk, but yours looks pretty sweet though.

u/deedeemckee · 2 pointsr/gameofthrones

I have it! I have not tried any of the recipes yet, but I'd say there is a good variation of easy and difficult recipes. I also like that they include modern versions of each recipe in the book, you know, in case you can't find any fresh snake for dinner. A few really tasty looking bread recipes as well. The Unofficial Cookbook also has a lot of Mead and Beer recipes, so I might have to pick that one up as well.

u/heretoforthwith · 1 pointr/gameofthrones

Was about to post the following, then I decided to see if anyone had already mentioned them. Posting for the links in case they help out:

I'm going through my second read now, and after this I plan to gather all miscellaneous stories. First, the Dunk and Egg stories in Legends I Volume 2, Legends II, and Warriors. Then the Princess and the Queen from Dangerous Women, and Everybody Loves a Rogue from Rogues. I'm hoping this will last me until World of Ice and Fire in October (I'll read the entire anthologies, not just the ASOIAF material). I also have other things to read in the meantime, Peter Watts has a new one coming out, and I want to check out some of the other stuff mentioned here, like the Abercrombie books, Rothfuss, and Sanderson.

u/ADeviantMuse · 2 pointsr/gameofthrones

I appreciate the kind words. This is what I used. You should definitely wear a costume at your next con! It's a ton of fun connecting with other fans like that, especially when they're dressed another character from the same franchise.

u/A_Polite_Noise · 11 pointsr/gameofthrones

They haven't been released individually but rather as parts of short story collections that Martin edits or has some other part in.

  • The first "Dunk & Egg" tale ("The Hedge Knight") is in the collection "Legends: Stories by the Masters of Modern Fantasy" (AMAZON LINK) as well as the more recent collection "Dreamsongs: Volume II" (AMAZON LINK)

  • The second Dunk & Egg tale ("The Sworn Sword") is in the collection "LEGENDS II: DRAGONS, SWORDS AND KINGS" (AMAZON LINK)

  • The third "Dunk & Egg" tale ("The Mystery Knight" is in the collection "Warriors 1" (AMAZON LINK)

  • The first and second "Dunk & Egg" tales ("The Hedge Knight" and "The Sworn Sword") were also adapted into graphic novels which are now sadly out of print; you will spend over $50 for them used, or up to $250+ for new copies. This is how I was introduced to "Dunk & Egg" and if you can get your hand on copies, I can't recommend them highly enough. The art is incredible, depicting Martin's world before HBO did, and the action is spot on; the dialogue and voice-overs and descriptions are all taken directly from the page...Martin's wording nearly perfectly transposed. (AMAZON LINK for THE HEDGE KNIGHT and ANOTHER EDITION and AMAZON LINK for THE SWORN SWORD and ANOTHER EDITION)
u/Oersted4 · 1 pointr/gameofthrones

I have that big poster in my room, as well as a Braavos map and another one of the whole world.

They came in an awesome pack, I have like another 4 - 5 that didn't fit on my walls :)

EDIT: I think it's this one

u/Learning_by_failing · 1 pointr/gameofthrones

I purchased the stand from amazon. The sword & stand look pretty cool on my office desk. Perfect size for each other.

u/EineEnte · 84 pointsr/gameofthrones

We build a 12-players GoT boardgame based on "A Game of Thrones: The board game (Second Edition)". The base game is for 6 players only and we thought “That can’t be all!”. Luckily for us we weren’t the first who thought that. We used the template of those guys and added a few things by our own. (Yeah I know it’s German :/ ) We spend around ~200€ for the materials but it was totally worth it!

Playable Houses are:

  • Arryn

  • Lannister

  • Tyrell

  • Tully

  • Daenerys Targaryen

  • Stark

  • Bolton

  • [Book Spoiler](#b "Aegon Targaryen")

  • Robert Baratheon

  • Stannis Baratheon

  • Greyjoy

  • Martell

    Any questions? Feel free to ask!

    (Edit: Formatting)

    (Edit 2: Just wanted to point out that this is a custom made expansion if it wasn't obvious already, linked the original")
u/Slidingthunder · 3 pointsr/gameofthrones

This board game is amazing and you could pretty easily draw it out on your table.

u/Waitingforadragon · 2 pointsr/gameofthrones

I bought a book called 'A Feast of Ice and Fire'. It's based on a blog that was written by two women who attempted to recreate the recipes they read about in the books. They used some original medieval recipes to get as authentic as they possibly could.

It has a forward by GRR Martin, so he obviously approves.

I really enjoy the book. It has chapters on Winterfell, the Wall, Kings Landing and I think Essos IIRC.

Seems that the blog is still up so you can get an idea of the sort of thing they do.

I'm thinking of doing Cat's breakfast for breakfast and then the bacon lattice pie for tea. Haven't decided on a lunch yet.

u/KyzonP · 3 pointsr/gameofthrones

Or you could just play the actual board game, which is fucking AMAZING.

u/tsukari · 3 pointsr/gameofthrones

You can actually buy Legends 1, Legends 2, and Warriors 1 on Amazon which contain the Dunk and Egg stories :) For reference the titles are The Hedge Knight, The Sworn Sword, and The Mystery Knight.

Both Legends have Kindle versions. Hope this helps!

u/dkdance100 · 3 pointsr/gameofthrones

This is a really great scan from "The Lands of Ice and Fire". If you like this map I would highly suggest getting the whole physical set. I plan to laminate some of them and maybe get one framed.

u/harryarei · 1 pointr/gameofthrones

When you searched for the novellas did you happen to search by the specific titles (The Hedge Knight, The Sworn Sword, and The Mystery Knight? If you did then I can see why you would think they'd be too expensive. The stories are part of three separate collections of short stories that are pretty cheap. They are Legends, Legends II, and Warriors. You can pick up all three on Amazon for like $30 total.

u/FearsomeMonark · 2 pointsr/gameofthrones

Nope, while this bears similarities as to how a Risk board is layed out, territories and all that, this is a gameboard made specifically for this. A super complex strategy game set in Westeros, requiring the use of advanced strategy, cunning diplomacy, and a healthy amount of bloodshed to best your opponents and conquer the Iron Throne.

The Thinkgeek page listed above has a nice bit of info about the game, but you can buy on Amazon for $15 less.

u/Quid66 · 5 pointsr/gameofthrones

I believe they both liked them (they are quite good!). We got that particular recipe from the unofficial Game of Thrones cookbook.

link for anyone who might want to buy it. Lot's of fun recipe's in there.

u/NotTheProgurt · 1 pointr/gameofthrones

Except the Wall isn't meant to keep wildling out, it's meant to keep the White Walkers out. So it compares even more poorly. It'd be like if Hadrian's Wall was meant for the purpose described for it in the graphic novel The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks, which was to protect against a wave of zombies, not it's likely real world purposes of customs control and protection from barbarian raiders and invaders.

u/Vurlax · 5 pointsr/gameofthrones

It is:

It's pretty good, though it takes a round or two before the rules make sense.

u/TychoTiberius · 5 pointsr/gameofthrones

Just buy this, it's way better than risk because it adds the politics and backstabbing that we all love from the show.

u/Will_Im_Not · 19 pointsr/gameofthrones

Just a reminder that there is a really good Game of Thrones Board Game and that we have an active community on /r/AGOTBoardGame

u/dodspringer · 5 pointsr/gameofthrones

If your wife enjoys cooking, I can recommend a book for her. In my house we always cook something from it for our pre-episode meal.

u/Chaoss780 · 2 pointsr/gameofthrones

They are such short novellas (I think the Rogue Prince is like 30 pages?) that I just took them from my school's inter-library loan system. You probably know this already, but for anyone else, The Rogue Prince is printed in Rogues and the Princess and the Queen is published in Dangerous Women.

Both are good, but only if you're a die-hard asoiaf fan. The P&Q especially gets confusing despite its very short length.

u/AreoHotahAxe · 1 pointr/gameofthrones

I have them, they're good if you like comics.

Volume one

Volume two

u/notaqueenakhalessi · 1 pointr/gameofthrones

Here are the books listed on amazon.

I got it myself, it's great. All 7 volumes for quite a cheap price plus you get a free map of Westeros, what's there to lose?

u/SiriusBlackLivesmatr · 3 pointsr/gameofthrones

Prequel might not be entirely accurate.

Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks is a graphic novel that has multiple stories about zombie encounters throughout history. I love it but it's a graphic novel not an actual novel so saying it is a prequel isn't entirely accurate but is kind of accurate.

u/nikongmer · 3 pointsr/gameofthrones

What are these? Referral links? ಠ_ಠ

Edit: Sorry for the accusation. So, when I view this in Chrome, I see this:

u/chazwhiz · 7 pointsr/gameofthrones

In the forward to the cookbook he explains that he writes the food in as much details as he does to make the world come alive. Personally I love it - although reading the books did shoot my cholesterol through the roof since I had to have plates of cheese, sausage, olives, etc whenever I read....

u/I_am_no_1 · 1 pointr/gameofthrones

I think you all need to check this out.

A Feast of Ice and Fire

But, I agree with RC_5213, Sailors Stew. I hope that its in there.

u/NumberMuncher · 1 pointr/gameofthrones

This looks excessive out of context, but GRRM uses food to describe people and places. In this case, the food describes the wealth of White Harbor and Manderly's obesity.

I highly recomend the Sister's Stew from A feast of ice and fire. It lives up to the description in the book.

u/OfTheNight · 27 pointsr/gameofthrones

map book called, The Lands of Ice and Fire.... make sure you frame your favorite before it rips into a million pieces

u/maedchen · 5 pointsr/gameofthrones

There we go. 9 inches long by 6 inches wide. That's the size I mean :)
and here SoS:

Seems to be the difference between Paperback and Mass Market. But I would just make sure you order the ones that say 9x6

u/hm_joker · 12 pointsr/gameofthrones

A lot of people seem confused. OP didn't make a board game, they custom made an expansion to increase the possible players for an existing game

If you like game of thrones and risk type games, it's an absolute blast. However, I highly recommend spending a loooot of time reading the rules to fully understand it or bring a friend to "lead" the game if you know someone who knows how to play, as it can be confusing for six beginners.

And nice work, OP! I imagine it's just total chaos and very game of thrones-y with the fake alliances and such you could do with that many people playing.

u/Daver2442 · 26 pointsr/gameofthrones Risk-type strategy game completely centered around Game of Thrones. I have it and it's amazing.

u/Nzgrim · 1 pointr/gameofthrones

Do you have any idea what characters she likes and which she dislikes? I don't have any ideas myself but it might help someone who has them.

Edit: Just got an idea. Dunno if she cooks, but if she does, there is an official GoT cookbook - A Feast of Ice and Fire (the book series is called A Song of Ice and Fire).

u/btdubs · 3 pointsr/gameofthrones

The Lands of Ice and Fire. Highly recommended if you like Game of Thrones. and maps.

u/cheerycherry2501 · 1 pointr/gameofthrones

I think that's the cheapest you can find.

Amazon is selling it for $161.57 with free ship

HBO store itself sells the whole thing for $199

u/Jordioteque · 5 pointsr/gameofthrones

You can find a lower-quality scan of the "Known World" map from the Land of Ice and Fire map book over thisaway. I recommend buying the collection on Amazon -- it's well worth it. I've spent hours pouring over the maps.

u/mattsoul · 2 pointsr/gameofthrones

If you decide to get real nerdy, there's a book that came out that has poster size maps of every area. The Known World, Westeros, The Free Cities, Bravos, King's Landing, Beyond the Wall, Slaver's Bay, The Dothraki Sea, The West, The East, Central Essos, and Journeys (Which shows the travels of major characters).

u/cyco · 61 pointsr/gameofthrones

The Risk board is really nice aesthetically, but try the Game of Thrones strategy game for actual gameplay. It's a lot of fun if you have a few friends and 7-8 hours to kill!

u/Kyle_Everts · 2 pointsr/gameofthrones

Aren't there 7 books already? I have never read any, but amazon lists a boxset with 7 books. What's going on with that?

u/rhinguin · 4 pointsr/gameofthrones

I’m gonna ask a question, hopefully it’s not dumb. I just bought a set on amazon but it was only 5 books. Am I getting the whole story here?

u/rwitucki · 3 pointsr/gameofthrones

Mass Market Paperback is probably your best bet if you want a physical copy. As for e-reader, that link has poor reviews because all 5 books are combined into 1.

u/dishler712 · 2 pointsr/gameofthrones

Starting on the 29th they're also going to include ADWD in a box set as well.

u/MonsieurFroid · 6 pointsr/gameofthrones

It's pretty similar to Risk, I feel. It's the exact same game as this, in fact.

u/skittymcmahon · 3 pointsr/gameofthrones

GRRM is supposed to release an official map/poster book in October with the known world. Whether these land masses will be included is not known, but it's confirmed to have more information than we currently have on Essos and Sothoyos including geography and scale.

Here is the link to pre-order it on Amazon.

u/hogthehedge · 2 pointsr/gameofthrones

That must be how they created this book.

u/muddisoap · 14 pointsr/gameofthrones

I'm talking about "The Lands of Ice and Fire" book that was a map compendium released detailing the maps of the world. I was pretty sure when I thumbed through that, that it contained full maps of Essos? Maybe I'm mistaken.

u/dm244 · 4 pointsr/gameofthrones

I too am poor, but I do work at a bookstore and you can get a solid price on the books by buying the mass market box set. Amazon sells it for $30 online.

The official world map is coming out in October. You may want to wait for that if you can, because according to GRRM, this speculative portions of this map are inaccurate.

There is a Game of Thrones board game that incorporates a lot of those characteristics. Not sure if you know about it, but each player plays as a major house and has "house cards" that help determine battles. Its not as much "luck" based as risk.

I my knowledge theres only 3 games.

The card game that I have never played, and is similar to amgic the gathering... so its not really for me.

There is "battles of westeros", which is a two-player game, and can be alot of fun.

There is the one I have "a game of thrones", which is a 3-6 player board game, along the lines of risk and diplomacy.

There is a history book I listened to in audiobook form while at work. It has no real main characters, but is instead much a history book from school. All told to Tommen by a Maester (I forget who specifically) as a history lesson. It can be a bit boring and fascinating at the same time. Some chapters/histories are so many steps removed from show/books that it got a little slow at times. Definatly worth it though. Made my re-watch of the show VERY different because I knew so much more about the world.

While it doesn't cover everything, it covers everything that is known to the Citidel. Entire histories of small islands north of the Dothraki Sea called Ib, and the islands between Valyria and Sothoros called the Basilisk Isles. But it's all accumulated knowledge, and so even in the book, there is doubt cast on a lot of it as well acknowledging the missing pieces.

There is also an official atlas that has very detailed maps. I would suggest finding one or on the internet to glance at at the same time. It helped me A LOT in understanding what was going on in these histories.

The Lands of Ice and Fire map collection. AFAIK, it's only available in a printed edition.

I actually recommend the second edition. It's like Risk, but everyone goes at the same time. 3-6 players (recommend 6). Alliances are absolutely required or else you end up locked in eternal war. There is politics, favoritism, and requires a solid strategy.

For added fun, use the Tides of Battle Cards as well, which will change the outcome of every battle, and just makes things chaotic and you really have to weigh your combat options.
