Rules FAQ

  • Water Gardens will not reduce the cost to marshal anything into shadows — basically, anything that affects the marshaling of a card with a certain characteristic will not affect marshaling a card into shadows. The game will look at the card being marshaled into shadows and see that characteristic as undefined (i.e. a card being marshaled into shadows cannot be defined as either “character” or “non-character” — it’s just a card being marshaled into shadows).

  • Water Gardens does reduce the cost of playing an event out of shadows. Playing an event from shadows is considered to be “playing an event,” and follows the same initiation process as playing an event from hand. By the time the process reaches Step 3 “Apply any modifiers to the cost,” the event can be defined as a “non-character card” that is being played and is thus eligible for the discount.

Rules FAQ

  • A gold bonus is a positive gold modifier or an effect that increases the gold value on your plot (Ex: The Roseroad, Winter Reserves). Cards with a negative gold modifiers are still applied to your revealed plot. (Ex: Pleasure Barge)(Under Review)
so.. I can "gain" gold from my other cards.. right? —
Yes, Dornish Fiefdom and Tyrion Lannister for example still give you gold. —
can i marshal into shadows during setup —
@Pavpach No. —
Its worth noting that Winter Reserves and Stone Drum still work with KotHH. They are not a gold bonus. Similarly, opponent's card effects such as Trading with the Qohor and Gates of the Moon still increase your gold. —
So which is it on WR? I agree with Mr. Dav as I see Roseroad adding 1 gold to your pool. It doesn't change the gold value of your plot, it adds(bonus) 1 to your plot. Whereas the WR changes a 5 gold plot to 6, not adding(bonus) 1 gold. —
Interesting, "gold bonus" is not defined in the Rules Reference. It refers to the +X gold icons as —
modifiers, not bonuses. But KotHH blocks only the +x gold icons, not other text such as Winter Reserve and Stone Drum as mrdav says. —

  • Black Market Merchant cannot find attachments with cost “-” because they do not have a printed cost.

Rules FAQ

  • If you put a duplicate of a Greyjoy location into play under your control, you do not get to draw a card.

Rules FAQ

  • The attached location gains the ability to draw a card and therefore the controller of the location is the one who can trigger it.
  • The text granted to the location is not blanked by other effects that blank the location. (Ex: Nightmares)
