A Game of Thrones card game began as a collectible card game (CCG) based on George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire. It was created by Fantasy Flight Games in 2002. As a CCG, players were encouraged to buy booster packs containing a random set of cards to add more strength and variety to their decks. These “blind packs” forced players to invest quite a large amount of money, either by buying more packs or trading with fellow players, in order to get the cards they require. This system left most players at the mercy of those who could afford to buy the rare and powerful cards. In 2007, Fantasy Flight Games solved this problem by converting A Game of Thrones card game into a “Living Card Game (LCG)”. Instead of booster packs with randomized cards, a fixed pack was scheduled for release each month. These “Chapter Packs”, which contained the same amount and type of cards, effectively diversified decks and gameplay while removing the frustration and exorbitant cost of getting into a CCG.
When George RR Martin began writing a book series called A Song of Ice and Fire nearly 20 years ago, he had no idea it would be adapted into one of the most popular TV series ever made. When you read and watch this incredible contents, all the battles, the characters and the complex storylines, you can't help but wonder where he found his inspiration. There is real chance that of some of Game of Thrones characters may be loosely based around real-life historical figures. And although George RR Martin doesn't say much on the subject, and has never confirmed these fan made links, it's not hard to find similarities between the two.
As we witnessed in the article on HoopoeQuotes (click here) there are also many other characters that we cannot link to any historical personality. I thought to combine the two and make an article on my favorite characters, but on the same time on Game of Thrones quotes. So, here are my favorite characters with some of their best quotes from the show.
A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin has gained lots of fans from the time the first book in the series, A Game of Thrones, has been published in 1998. In the last two years, after the Game of Thrones series was released, that fan base grew even larger. Even though there are many fans of the series who won’t be bothered by reading the books, there are plenty of those who wanted to see more details and learn more about the world of Westeros, and it’s aristocracy – House Lannister, House Stark, House Targaryen, and others, and those indulged in the books.

For those who are regular dwellers on this site, the idea of not watching Game of Thrones seems almost ludicrous. What else is there for you to do with your life? And more importantly, why would you put that ahead of having a weekend season marathon? Only kidding, obviously there are plenty of you who have no doubt ventured onto the site to find out more, and we’re more than happy to oblige.
Everybody loves the good theory. That's why you've got at least one friend who thinks that making Bush did 9/11 signs to the sporting event is hilarious. But no TV show’s quite got the tinfoil hat and amongst us so excited as Game of Thrones.
After finally getting a resolution to literally years of R + L = J speculation. We now know the theories are weirdly warped somewhere inside George RR Martin's mind. I mean, look at his face, there's some message going on in there.
