New version of Monopoly: Game of Thrones blasts out series theme tune as you play

  1. The second edition of Game of Thrones Monopoly can be preordered now for delivery in January next year. Like the traditional versions of the board game, players move around as they buy and sell locations, except in this instance they’re places found in the Seven Kingdoms, and you can build castles and holdfasts on the properties instead of hotels and houses.

    Rather than the usual paper money, the game features silver stag and gold dragon cardboard coins, which are modeled on those used in GoT. There are also 6 “collectible zinc tokens” based on the sigils of Westeros’ great houses, but the coolest addition is the Iron Throne card holder that plays Ramin Djawdi’s famous opening score from the TV series throughout gameplay, though not constantly, one would imagine.

    As Game of Thrones is for adults, this version of Monopoly is aimed at over 18s. Maybe we’ll get a Chance card that reads: “Have an incestuous relationship with your sibling, move forward five places.”

    Monopoly: Game of Thrones is available to preorder for $29.99 from several retailers, including GameStop and Amazon.
