By Team Covenant– April 26, 2012
It seems like ages ago that we first started playing the Game of Thrones LCG… Like everyone else, we started with one core set. After a couple of games you would hear any one of us saying things like ‘Man, I could really use one or two more of those Milk of the Poppy’s’ or ‘Why do you get to use our copy of Valar? I want to use it.’ As a group of four people sharing one core set, things got sticky fast. Even within our respective houses we soon realized that we needed more core sets. $70 later and we had three of each card in the core set… and there have still been some near team breaking arguments over who gets to use two of our three The Power of Blood plots!
For us, it wasn’t necessarily awful because there were four of us. That’s only $20 each (beyond the first core set) to get three copies of each card. But considering you can buy nearly every chapter pack for about $500, spending $100+ just to get 3 of each of the core set cards is typically not an investment a new players wants to make. With that same $100 we spent on our core sets, we could have instead opened up 20% of the total card pool… For most players it’s a difficult choice.
Today, we are finally making available all of the goodness that is the core set without having to purchase the entire box! If you don’t happen to have three friends to split things with, you are keen on a handful of houses, or you really just need a couple of cards, this is for you.
Core Set House Pack - For just $9.97, you get all of the core set contents for a single house! If you already have one starter, picking up two of these for any one house would guarantee that you have three of each card from your respective house!
Singles – We’ve also added all of the core set neutral and non-house specific cards to our AGOT singles catalog. This includes cards like The Power of Blood, Valar Morghulis, and Milk of the Poppy.
At this time, everything from the core box is in stock. We will do our best to stay in stock of these items!
