The melee went on for three hours. Near forty men took part, freeriders and hedge knights and new-made squires in search of a reputation. They fought with blunted weapons in a chaos of mud and blood, small troops fighting together and then turning on each other as alliances formed and fractured, until only one man was left standing.
–George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones
The Grand Melee is the second monthly installment of 60 fixed cards–3 copies each of 20 different cards–for the A Tale of Champions expansion to A Game of Thrones: The Card Game. The never-before-seen cards in this expansion are designed to augment existing decks and add variety to the A Game of Thrones experience.
Featuring new versions of favorite characters like Robert Baratheon, Varys, and Thoros of Myr, developed especially for the new environment of A Tale of Champions, as well as introducing brand-new cards like The Smalljon, Captain of the Iron Fleet, and In the Name of the King, The Grand Melee has plenty to interest A Game of Thrones players, both new and veteran.
