Financial geeks with a flair for board games will have the opportunity to take on their friend across the vast Westeros with this newly released Monopoly based on HBO’s medieval fantasy series “Game of Thrones”. Locations are now named after King’s Landing, Winterfell and Castle Black, and players can choose from a white walker, direwolf, three-eyed raven, dragon egg, crown and the famous Iron Throne to use as pieces. The popular green houses have been replaced with villages and red hotels are now Keeps. Collectible tokens are also up for grabs which include a Dragon Egg and Three-Eyed Raven to name a few.
The guys over at the theguardian.com had the following to share about the release of the board game:
“Best of all, what about a Game of Thrones spoiler Buckaroo? Done properly, this could be the perfect recreation of talking about the show to friends and strangers in real life. Players would take turns to gingerly place pieces of information about the series onto the shoulders of a plastic viewer, but, at any moment, a single obscure fact about an episode he hasn’t seen might send him spiralling into a protracted full-body fit until everyone goes home. Will it be the details of the Red Wedding? Will it be a joke about Littlefinger’s wandering accent? Will it be an acknowledgement of the existence of Qarth? Who knows?”
There is a whole lot of fun to be had here so put us down for a copy and let the games begin!
