WINTER IS COMING IN SPRING: A FEW THINGS EVERY WESTEROS FAN CAN ENJOY
Can you feel it? Winter is coming once again. All of the beloved fans of Westeros can rest assured that a fresh and bloody season of Game of Thrones will take over the nation….. on April 12th.
So, what can you do to pass the time and get ready for the paramount explosion of betrayal and anti-hero-ness? Well, here’s a couple of things that I actually recommend!
TellTale Games has released a new 6 part multi-platform, downloadable game (so far only episode one is out) that tells the tale of one of the Bannerman families who were loyal to the Starks. The tale takes place right after the Red Wedding and takes you on a ride that only TellTale knows how to. Filled with grit, blood, and betrayal will this game make you feel like you’re playing right inside the story with three different characters available to control in each part of the first episode. Just like the series itself, your decision matters to who you trust and how you react to people. With villains like Cersei and Ramsay Snow, you will never know how your fate will turn out to be.
Secondly, there is a behind-the-scenes documentary, Game of Thrones: A Day in the Life, airing on HBO on February 8th (with February 3rd as the release date for episode two from Telltale). This doc will take viewers through the journey of production for Season 5 and what’s up ahead!
If you’re a hardcore fan of the books, here are some pretty cool bookmarks I found that will represent your house pride!
And of course, if you'd like to re-watch past seasons and marathon it out with your drinking buddies then try out one of these hysterical drinking games!
Remember, only one will come out alive.
