The next expansion for Fantasy Flight Games’ A Game of Thrones:  The Card Game is now available for pre-order.

The desert-dwelling House Martell is the focus of the upcoming Sands of Dorne expansion.  This expansion focuses on their quest for revenge following the death of Elia Martell, and includes a number of characters and mechanics tied to that theme.  A number of characters from House Martell appear for the first time or as new versions, including Doran Martell, the Red Viper, Ellaria Sand, and Nymeria Sand.

In addition to new cards for House Martell, the set has two new non-loyal cards for every faction in the game, a new agenda, and new neutral plots for players to pursue.

MSRP for the expansion is $29.95.  A copy of A Game of Thrones:  The Card Game Second Edition is needed to play.

Last year, Fantasy Flight combined A Game of Thrones with the ever-popular board game Catan in A Game of Thrones Catan:  Brotherhood of the Watch (see “Fantasy Flight Combines ‘Catan’ With ‘Game of Thrones’”).
