Game of Thrones Monopoly? Throneopoly!

Lord of the Rings Monopoly is so yesterday! Today’s hot thing is the Game of Thrones monopoly proposition by some very die-hard A song of Ice and Fire fans. The aim is simple – keep out of the Wall and collect as many castles as you can.

The people behind this dream-come-true are io9, a fiction, science-fiction and future blog/online magazine/community which commissioned John Pedigo to design the game, along with input from different fans.

Here’s a Community Chest Fund and Chance cards taster:

And here are some game pieces – both player pieces and the farmhouse/inn (house/hotel) pieces:

This rather humorous adaptation of Monopoly is, however, funny, also possibly one of the distinguishing marks of a true fan community. Big thumbs up to io9 for taking this step!
