Game Of Thrones: an official board game is coming soon

To tie in with the release of Game Of Thrones season 8, the final run of HBO’s fantasy mega-hit, HBO has teamed up with a company called Dire Wolf Digital to serve up an official Game Of Thrones board game. Here are the details…

Going by the title Game Of Thrones: Oathbreaker, this new table-top treat is described as “a game of intrigue and betrayal”. Between five and eight players can battle it out at once, with the recommended lower age limit being 14.

The game will be priced at $35 USD, which translates as just over £26 GBP.

Here’s what the box will look like…

And if it’s a big description that you’re after, the game is described thusly on its official website:

Who do you trust?

If you sit on the Iron Throne, the wisest answer is “no one.”

Game of Thrones: Oathbreaker™ is a game of deception and social deduction. One player assumes the role of King or Queen, while the others represent the great Lords and Ladies of the Houses of Westeros. Some are loyalists who want order in the realm. Others are conspirators, seeking to undermine the throne. And all of them have a secret agenda of their own. Who is truly loyal, and who is simply hungry for power, honor, and coin? It’s up to the King to figure it out before it’s too late.

Lavishly illustrated with photos from the hit HBO original series, Game of Thrones: Oathbreaker captures all of the intrigue and drama of Westeros in a game that’s fast, fun, and strategic. Play as any of 12 unique characters as you connive and scheme your way to victory!

Game Of Thrones: Oathbreaker will launch in Spring 2019, which seems like perfect timing, because Game Of Thrones season 8 is premiering on April 14th on HBO, Sky Atlantic and Now TV.

You can sign up for updates from Dire Wolf Digital if you want to be alerted when the game is available.
