Forget American Land Ownership, You Can Now Conquer Westeros

Fans of HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ now have the opportunity to conquer Westeros! Just in time for the Season 5 premiere, the cable network is releasing a “Game of Thrones’ version of Monopoly.

Instead of playing a shoe, top hat, or horse and buggy, you can choose between a white walker, direwolf, three-eyed raven, dragon egg, crown, and the Iron Throne. Forget taking over the railroads or Broadway, ‘Game of Thrones’ players can purchase King’s Landing, Winterfell and Castle Black. And once you’ve conquered those properties, you can build villages and keeps instead of measly green houses and red hotels.

Just like the TV show, however, this is not a family friendly game. Recommended for players 18 and over, this is definitely a game to replace poker night, not Parcheesi.
