Rally the banners! The King in the North has returned! 


Minnesota’s largest player-run Game of Thrones tournament is returning on September 23rd at the Fantasy Flight Games Center. We would like to extend an invitation to all of those in Westeros who are able to make the journey to the cold, great North. Our gates are open to you. 

Once again, we have been blessed by the Old Gods with prizes. This year we’re going bigger, with playmats (illustrated by Khanh Bui) for the top eight players, as well as full sets of Great Halls (by Michele Montini) if you’re able to prove your mettle and make the cut. Also on the line are alt arts of Calling the Banners and Blood of the Dragon (both by Diego Gisbert Llorens). Last but not least, every participant will receive a copy of Retaliation (Khanh Bui). See picture below!

But there will be more surprises on the way! Last year was an absolute blast, and we hope to see some familiar faces, as well as some new ones. Be sure to RSVP on Facebook so we can properly accommodate for space and prizes. Winter is coming.
