"We are fond of spears in Dorne. Besides, it is the only way to counter his reach. Have a look, Lord Imp, but see you do not touch." The spear was turned ash eight feet long, the shaft smooth, thick, and heavy. The last two feet of that was steel: a slender leaf-shaped spearhead narrowing to a wicked spike. The edges looked sharp enough to shave with. When Oberyn spun the haft between the palms of his hands, they glistened black.
–George R. R. Martin, A Storm of Swords
The final Chapter Pack in the A Tale of Champions cycle, A Poisoned Spear is full of new champions, machinations, treachery, and backstabbing. A Poisoned Spear draws the cycle to a close on a high note with more unique characters as well as cards that reinforce the cycle's focus on the melee format and two new keywords, Joust and Melee.
The 60 new cards (3 copies each of 20 different cards) from A Poisoned Spear introduce Condition attachments that support decks without agendas, Warhorse attachments for each house that provide dynamic bonuses when the attached characters win challenges alone, and a fantastic new location that's certain to promote the appearance of the most notable and unique characters from George R.R. Martin's fiction.
An A Game of Thrones: The Card Game core set is required to play. Contains cards 101-120 of the A Tale of Champions series.
