As I was writing this article, and as you are reading it right now, the Night King and his army of the dead are marching toward Winterfell for a battle that we are being told will melt all of our brains due to extreme awesomeness, this is not at all hard to believe as Game of Thrones is sure to cement its legacy during its sure to be epic final season.
No more Thrones, at least not like we’re used to. Sure a prequel series is on the way, but can television magic like what we’re watched for the last eight years or so be captured again? I doubt it, however, today we get details on a board game that just may calm your withdraws between the time Game of Thrones ends and the prequel series begins, Game of Thrones: Oathbreaker. A board game based on the show that is due out this spring is being sold as a “social deduction game of ambition and deceit”.

You can find an official description of the game below.
“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!”
