I am frequently prone to distraction,
But often I am making the big decision.
Many a tunnel has been me,
And I have been many a tree.

Sometimes I can be rolling fast,
Other how a Baratheon passed.
As the game goes on I stayed the same,
Bearing whatever weights had came.

What am I?

My answer is

bored/board

I am frequently prone to distraction,

When bored, you are prone to distraction.

But often I am making the big decision.

A board is a group of people constituted as the decision-making body of an organisation.

Many a tunnel has been me,

To bore is to make a hole in something so many man-made tunnels are bored.

And I have been many a tree.

A board can refer to a long, thin, flat piece of wood.

Sometimes I can be rolling fast,

A skate board rolls fast

Other how a Baratheon passed.

Robert Baratheon was bored by a boar.

As the game goes on I stayed the same,

A board game is a game that involves moving counters around a board.

Bearing whatever weights had came.

The past tense of bear is bore, so you bored the weights.

  • $\begingroup$ Well my weakest hint was definitely the bearing whatever weights line, which I meant to refer to the fact that boards often are used in structures. And the Baratheon thing was aiming for a pun on boared, but also that (puns are fun). Good job. $\endgroup$ – Going hamateur Jul 13 '16 at 15:31
