We broke the news about the Risk: Game of Thrones edition back in Marh, but now we finally have images of the board and playing pieces. HBO joined forces with Hasbro and USAopoly to create this special edition game based on the TV show.

“RISK: Game of Thrones’ Edition Game escalates ‘Risk’, the classic game of strategic conquest, to an epic level of chaos and war in a battle for the Iron Throne. Featuring striking game packaging, two custom-designed game boards, three ways to play, seven finely sculpted armies, and more than 650 total pieces, this game of strategic conquest will test the wits and bravery of both Risk and Game of Thrones fans. So, ready your swords for battle as you vie for domination of the Seven Kingdoms and beyond, because in RISK: Game of Thrones Edition Game only one victor can sit on the Iron Throne.”

I think gathering friends for a night of this sure to be epic game should have mandatory costume requirements.

GoT Risk is listed on Entertainment Earth and Amazon with shipment slated for August.

Check out the full game board and accessories after the break.

GOT playset

Pretty soon, you’ll be able to drop your favorite action figures into Westeros thanks to Todd McFarlane, who has created new figures and playsets for Game Of Thrones.

The first release is the Iron Throne Room which includes Joffrey and Tyrion along with Lannister guards and members of the Kingsguard. Future playsets will include a Mother of Dragons set and an Attack on The Wall set with figures that include Daenerys, John Snow, Ghost, Grey Worm, Rhaegal, and more (Rhaegal intrigues me as an addition). The sets will retail for $14.99 to $49.99 and figures for $3.99 each.

If someone doesn’t put Princess Leia on that throne, I’ll be mightily disappointed.

This week’s Game of Thrones featured an incredible battle at Hardhome. It’s not in the books, so this was a new experience for everyone watching—and they went all out during filming. The scene involved hundreds of extras, huge sets, and no small amount of chaos. See how they brought it all together in this behind-the-scenes video.

When you sit upon the IT Throne, you’ll have to deal with bothersome phone calls from people who don’t understand that computers won’t run when they’re not plugged in. They need power, people! They don’t run on magic!

If you’ve been wondering what this whole Red Nose Day thing is all about, here’s a great intro. Red Nose Day has been raising money in the UK for 30 years to the tune of £1 billion to help save and change lives all over the world. This year, NBC has stepped up to add their support and help #RedNoseDay become more well known here in the States.

One of the huge benefits of this new push are videos designed to help raise awareness, like this one with Peter Dinklage and Coldplay teaming up to bring you Game Of Thrones: The Musical.

As many Game Of Thrones know, the television series has begun to deviate from the books in a major way. Thankfully, Joeltronics has stepped in with a graph that will help you match episodes up with the chapters in the books and identify which bits of the books aren’t in the show and vice versa.

Imagine if Westeros was a place you could actually visit? You might plan that road trip on Google Maps, and this is what that experience would look like. While you can’t zoom in and navigate, the design is certainly convincing. Etsy seller MongoLife is even selling it as a framed print so you can hang it on your wall.
