A Game of Thrones is an umbrella name that covers two distinct card games developed by Fantasy Flight Games. The Collectors Card Game (CCG) ran from 2002 to 2008 and spanned six blocks before being phased out in favour of a new Living Card Game (LCG) format that allows for the easier acquisition of desired cards.

Central to the development of the original CCG was the release of regular core blocks and expansion sets centred around booster packs of 11 cards (1xRare, 3xUncommon, 7xCommon.) In all Fantasy Flight Games released six core blocks (Westeros, Ice & Fire, Valyrian, Winter, Iron Throne and Five Kings) along with ten expansion sets split two each between the first five blocks.

With the creation of the LCG Fantasy Flight Games removed the random nature of booster packs and replaced them with a number of regular fixed ‘Chapter’ packs, each containing 40 fixed cards (3 copies of ten cards and 1 copy of ten other cards.) This allows for easier construction of decks as players need only buy packs containing cards that would aid their own deck. With the introduction of the Brotherhood Without Banners Cycle LCG Chapter Packs now contain 60 cards and place more emphasis on single houses over the balanced nature of previous packs.

The following is a list of all CCG Blocks and Expansions along with a list of all LCG Cycles and Chapters;
