Played 1st ed. Its a fun game but I enjoyed 3 and 4 player games alot more than just head to head. And there are great mechanics (1st ed) that make multiplayer shine so well that are just do not exist in 1 on 1 game. The worlds of GoT is about trying to get to the top while covering your ass from everyone else. That screams multiplayer (to me). 1 on 1 is for tournament style games and just does not feel like GoT to me. Now if FFG got their shit together and billed the game as 3+ players for tournament, and the 2 player mode was more of a casual thing, that would be amazing. But I do not really see it happening.
