Default The Official A Game of Thrones Thread

for game of thrones fans enjoy


Want to actually throw your hat into the Game of Thrones arena? But, you know, in a safe way? A way that won't end with your head being unjustly separated from your body?

HBO is currently holding a sweepstakes where you can enter to win Robert Baratheon's crown. No, not a replica, an actual crown used on the Game of Thrones series, created by costume designer Michele Clapton!


- HBO
Robert's Crown
Or, if you don't win the Grand Prize, you might win the lovely (also real) crown worn by the wretched King Joffrey!


- HBO
Joffrey's Crown.
Head over to Store.HBO.com and enter to win. The deadline for entries is May 7th.

And for all you Game of Thrones superfans out there, travel north beyond the wall to IGN's Game of Thrones Wiki Guide and brush up on your knowledge. Add a few facts while you're at it!

It is a good series, just a bit slow moving. I am not going to fault you for not getting into the series though, as I myself only got into it last week.

It's a great show. One piece of advice: Don't get attached to ANYONE.

Absolutey. I think the character is fantastic(in the show, as I have just started reading the books), such great dialogue and progression. And perfect casting too, IMO.

I agree. For almost every character the casting is spot on.

Everything that comes out of that characters mouth in the show and the book is absolute gold. I finished book 2 before the second season started. Still need to read the rest but man are they an undertaking.

My God this show is great. It's replaced Breaking Bad as my current favorite show still on the air (nothing will replace the mighty Lost for me). AGOT has got it all; great actors, great writing, and every penny is right up on screen. I went out and bought all the books and am now reading those. They're every bit as good as the show.
