The two most vicious interpersonal systems known to man are capitalism and whatever it is you call what they’ve got going on in Westeros. So a combination of Game of Thrones and Monopoly is a match made in Heaven and/or Hell, which is why the recently announced Game of Thrones Monopoly is such an exciting prospect.
Game of Thrones Monopoly will follow all the usual routines for special editions of the board game, with locales, items, and people from the show making appearances in the game play. And unlike traditional Monopoly, there’s a chance you’ll be able to murder other players, which I think we can all agree is an improvement.
The HBO online store lists Game of Thrones Monopoly as being in “pre-release,” and says that it’s coming sometime in 2015. So as long as the makers of the game are more reliable than George R.R. Martin, you should be parking your dragon egg at Winterfell sometime this year. For now, you can check out the listing here.
