Murder is a common theme in Game of Thrones. Just when you get attached or start sympathizing with a character…boom! They’ve been barbecued with wildfire or had their throat sliced end to end like a sacrificial goat. More than 30 characters died in the season six finale, and yet you yearn for more Westeros mystery and intrigue while patiently waiting to see what Jon and Daenerys’ incest baby looks like in the final season.
Figure out which of your favorite GoT characters committed the murder, with which weapon, in which room (no, it wasn’t Ramsey with his hounds in the kennel…that’d be too easy).
Keep the mystery fresh by switching up the crime scene with the double-sided game board. One side is set in the Red Keep at King’s Landing, featuring nine rooms like the Small Council Chamber, Throne Room, Qyburn’s Laboratory and the bedchambers of King Tommen. There are twelve suspects in total, six from each location. Decipher between Cersei, Jamie, and Tyrion Lannister, Sansa Stark, Little Finger or Margaery Tyrell for the Red Keep murders.
The flip side of the board puts us at Meereen in Slaver’s Bay with murder rooms like the Dragon Catacombs or the Pyramid of the Great Masters. Suspects for this board include The Mother of Dragons, Daario, Jorah, Grey Worm, Missandei and Hizdahr Zo Loraq.
The game plays like classic Clue but has been modified with 21 intrigue cards (13 Master of Whisperers and 8 White Walkers) and six metal murder weapons to decide from (crossbow, battle ax, arakh, poison vial, catspaw assassin dagger and faceless man).
