AEG to Release ‘Game of Crowns’ Board Game

Alderac Entertainment Group will release Game of Crowns in June, according to hobby news website


The game is designed by Remo Conzadori, with art by Pascal Quidault.  Players control one of the nine noble houses of the Ruelen Empire, and with the ruler’s death, they are each attempting to gain enough control and influence to claim the crown.  Players can exchange cards and favors through diplomacy, or attack opponents through warfare to gain what they need.

The box contains 90 House cards, 18 Vote cards, 11 Guest cards, 37 Raven tokens, 9 Reference cards, and a round track.  The game is for 4-9 players, ages 14 and up, and plays in 45 minutes.  MSRP is $29.99, which is a great price point.


Does this sound familiar? If it does, perhaps that’s because it seems awfully similar in concept to Game of Thrones. Even a similar name.

Game of Thrones Writer to Pen Script for ‘Magic the Gathering’ Film

Earlier this week it was announced on that 20th Century Fox has selected Games of Thrones writer Bryan Cogman – also a producer, story editer and writer for the insanely popular HBO drama – to pen the script for the planned ‘Magic the Gathering’ film, produced by Hasbro and 20th Century Fox.


Bryan Cogman


Fox acquired the rights to the ‘Magic the Gathering’ film last January, a trading card game released in 1993 by Wizards of the Coast – now owned by Hasbro. Since 1993, ‘Magic the Gathering’ has become one of the most successful games in the hobby industry to date.


Simon Kinberg, the producer attached to the project, is best known for X-Men: Days of Future Past  and Sherlock Holmes.
