Rules FAQ

  • If Shrewd Diplomat enters play as the result of a reaction to winning or losing (e.g. The Queen of Thorns TMOW), it can stand and remove a participating character without affecting the winner of the challenge or the amount by which the challenge was won.
  • The above can also cause a character to be participating alone, similar to e.g. The Hound and Mirri. For example, if you win an intrigue challenge with Queen of Thorns (4 str) and Mirri Maz Duur (5 str) which is defended by a House Maester (2 str), then trigger Queen of Thorns to put Shrewd Diplomat into play, you can stand and remove Queen of Thorns from the challenge, trigger any win by 5 effects (e.g. A Pinch of Powder), and trigger Mirri Maz Duur’s interrupt.

Rules FAQ

  • If you choose an opponent who controls a copy of The Inn at the Crossroads, you will draw 3 cards but the Inn will remain under your control.
  • If you take control of The Inn with Sea Bitch, then trigger it, it will remain with the opponent you chose for the action, as that is the most recent control effect.

  • Hobb triggers after reserve is checked, so even if the draw puts your hand size over your reserve value you do not have to discard.

Rules FAQ

  • As a cost, the reaction window to the card being sacrificed opens and closes before the new card enters play. Therefore, sacrificing a card that would react to a card being sacrificed (e.g. Robb Stark, Meera Reed) will not trigger the reaction on the new copy of the card.
  • You can sacrifice a character you know you cannot find in your deck.
  • Any delayed or lasting effects affecting the old card expire and do not affect the new card.
