A Game of Thrones - the board game

I'm planning on running 'A Game of Thrones' board game at the meet on 13/10/12.

Here is Fantasy Flights Games description of the game;

King Robert Baratheon is dead, and the lands of Westeros brace for battle. In the second edition of A Game of Thrones: The Board Game, three to six players take on the roles of the great Houses of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, as they vie for control of the Iron Throne through the use of diplomacy and warfare. Based on the best-selling A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones is an epic board game in which it will take more than military might to win. Will you take power through force, use honeyed words to coerce your way onto the throne, or rally the townsfolk to your side? Through strategic planning, masterful diplomacy, and clever card play, spread your influence over Westeros!

Agreed, i've owned the game for nearly a year and still not played it!

Can't wait. Should we decide on who's playing what character now? Or leave it to the gods, old and new, on the day?

I'll post something in the forum about which house players want to take.
