I suppose it can be considered to be a rite of passage for every single child to grow up having played Monopoly at least once. It is a decent game back in the day, where an entire family could gather together, each person taking a token that represents his or her character in the capitalistic game which brings together both the roll of the dice as well as bargaining nous as to who is going to end up making other people bankrupt. Well, there has been many other variations since its early days that do happen to capitalize on the various franchises that have made it big, ranging from Star Wars to Star Trek, and here we are with the £29.99 Game of Thrones Monopoly.
In the Game of Thrones Monopoly, you either win or you die. The premise is the same – you will need to buy, sell and trade your way to the Iron Throne, and Game of Thrones fans will be thrilled to know that there are other infamous locations which have been thrown into the mix such as Craster’s Keep and Kings Landing. The Game of Thrones Monopoly is fully licensed by HBO, and thankfully, it is different from the TV series since killing everyone else will not help you secure victory. What is weird is the lack of contextualization when it comes to Free Parking and a Jail run by a whistle-blowing cop.
