Insight and Renown S02E03 - What We Do in the Shadows


Who knows what evil lurks in the heart of AGoT? The shadows know! Join us this time as we take a look back at the Shadows mechanic, which has recently been announced as returning to the game's second edition. And as a bonus, see how many of the weird rulings we talk about you can correctly resolve!
For those unfamiliar - have you ever looked at a game mechanic and wondered if there were a better way to implement it? Or even just a different way?

In the 2nd Edition of the Game of Thrones Living Card Game, we're in a unique position - thousands of card have come before us, but only a few are available for play right now. As new cards come out, what are the chances that we'll see some old abilities and mechanics revisited? The Insight and Renown podcast posits that it's pretty damn near 100%.

As a 12+ year veteran of this game, I've seen a lot of cards come and go, and thought it might be interesting to take a look at the history of this game, and see what cards and themes we might see again in the near future. Every episode will highlight one theme or mechanic in 2nd Edition, and look at some of the cards from the CCG era and 1st Edition that might be reprinted, or at least serve as inspiration for a new card.
