More than just a game for fans, A Game of Thrones: The Board Game is a definitive medieval strategy game. At least on the tabletop, where it’s 17 years old and on its second edition. The reasons it’s popular translate well to the digital edition if you bring your own friends, but the multiplayer infrastructure just isn’t set up for pickup play via matchmaking. It’s also hampered by a mediocre user interface and slow game speed in singleplayer.
