Between George R.R. Martin’s admission that Game of Thrones will divert significantly from A Song of Ice and Fire and his supposed inability to publish anything new anytime soon, fans are having a rough 2015. Never fear, for HBO and Hasbro came together to create yet another edition of the nearly 80-year-old board game, Monopoly:
Vie to hold dominion over the realms of men in the Game of Thrones Collector’s Edition of MONOPOLY. Featuring infamous locations from the original dramatic television series, including Castle Black, Winterfell and King’s Landing, players will buy, sell and trade their way to sit atop the Iron Throne. Collectible tokens include: Dragon Egg, Three-Eyed Raven, White Walker, Direwolf, Crown and The Iron Throne. Custom Villages and Keeps replace traditional Houses and Hotels. (Via HBO)
That’s right folks. Instead of learning about the basic concepts of modern capitalism, players can disembowel their enemies, raise dragons, and avoid White Walkers — all in their quest to sit atop the Iron Throne.
The game is slated for release later this year, though no precise date has been set. One thing’s for sure — not even Cards Against Humanity will be able to compete with the weekly game night’s newfound source of depravity.
