Simultaneous mustering

Share big alternative variants (similar to and expansion), or maybe just talk/discuss small alternations to the official rules for better balance!

Would it be possible to add it as an option? This would really speed up our games.

Hi Hak,

thanks for your feedback but unfortunately we won't implement this idea. We had a talk about it and there are several reasons why we won't do it.

The most important: Consider an open sea where 2 castles, owned by different houses, can muster to. Turn order is important here and simultaneous mustering would break the game rules! E.G. GJ attacks Lannister and keeps IronmansBay empty. In case Lannister has Riverrun and muster comes he will be able to muster to Ironmans Bay.

The second reason: For me it would slow down the game. As in case I don't have such a race condition, I would wait until all others did their mustering to react instead of acting. I guess many other players would do the same.

And last but not least... It's not worth the effort to support this.


I hope you can understand this.


Best regards,

Gereon
