Game of thrones monopoly A Lannister always pays his debts, except in bankruptcy. Obviously bored from conquering Westeros in the usual fashion, now gamers will get to settle the score Old School thanks to USAopoly's upcoming version of the 1933 classic. From CBS News
You can play as the three-eyed raven, a White Walker, direwolf or even the Iron Throne, and locations on the board will be very familiar to fans -- Castle Black, Winterfell and King's Landing among them. Villages and keeps will replace the game's houses and hotels.
The full choice of pawns is Dire Wolf, Dragon Egg, Iron Throne (don't step on it!), Crown, White Walker and 3-eyed Raven. So players should be able to represent their favorite factions (except for the Dothraki, but they don't have money). No word on what the Chance and Community Chest cards will look like. Perhaps players will be able to draw such events as "You Won Second Prize in a Trial by Combat" and "Iron Bank Error in Your Favor -- Collect 200 Silver Stags." No price or release date specifics have been announced, only that it will be available sometime in 2015.  You can read the full NBCNews brief here, and view the product itself at the HBO store here.
