In George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire, every victory is hard-won. Every great castle is merely another strategic foothold, each alliance fraught with peril. So we were wondering: What if Ice and Fire was a Monopoly board?
What if, instead of making uneasy alliances and searching for the truth in a harsh landscape where the very seasons are set against you, you had to move around the board attempting to collect castles and avoid having to go to The Wall? We had to see if we could make it happen. And here it is: Throneopoly!
