Brace yourselves, folks, because Winter is coming . . . along with a brand-new edition of Game of Thrones Monopoly! Hasbro joined forces with HBO to create an updated version of the popular board game, and it's chock-full of cool features that'll make you feel like you're smack-dab in the middle of Westeros. Except, ya know, instead of dragons and Valyrian steel weapons, you're just armed with silver game tokens.
Speaking of tokens, this new edition features metallic game pieces inspired by the honorary sigils of the Great Houses, so players can pledge their loyalty to whichever house they desire. As for the currency, there won't be a pink or green paper bill in sight, as players will purchase locations from the Seven Kingdoms and build holdfasts and castles using Gold Dragon and Silver Stag coins. Rather than having a "banker," these coins are held by the Master of Coin in the Royal Treasury.
Oh, and we almost forgot to mention a very vital detail: the iconic Game of Thrones theme song will play aloud from an Iron Throne-shaped card holder while you play. This marks the first time a Monopoly game has ever incorporated a musical component, and Hasbro couldn't have picked a more catchy tune to do the honors.
The new-and-improved edition of Game of Thrones Monopoly will be available at major retailers beginning in January 2019 (just three months before the HBO show's eighth and final season will premiere), but especially eager fans can preorder it now from Amazon for $30. Take an exclusive first peek at the forthcoming board game ahead, and prepare for game night to get more competitive than ever.
