Played (and lost...again) Game of Thrones 2nd Edition via Vassal. It was a VERY slow build-up, especially given it was a 3 player game. But then the last two rounds? WOW!
In round 10, Baratheon was leading Stark then Lannister, 6-5-3. Lannister was pretty much ready to fold. But after FOUR combats it came down to the Lannisters at Harrenhal trying to overcome the Baratheons at Crackclaw Point. She came in with overwhelming numbers (Siege Engine and 2 knights) on a -1 march order, while Baratheon defended with one lowly footman (+1 supported by 2 other footmen. So, going into the card draw, it was Lannisters attacking with 7, Baratheons defending with 4. Unfortunately for the Lannisters, she was out of cards, except for her 0 power Cersei. Baratheon came in with 2 power Ser Davos. However, Stannis was in her discard pile, giving Ser Davos another +1! Tied! And since Baratheon topped Lannister on the fiefdom track, it was a Baratheon victory!
Tenth round is over, time to score.
The once mighty Starks (winning just one round before) had fallen mightily down to 4 victory points. Baratheon and Lannister were tied.
Down to who has the most strongholds....LANNISTERS!!!!
Wow...just an epic, epic game with a great finish. One of my favorites.
