Win a Copy of the New Game of Thrones RPG

By Jacob Klein on May 11, 2012 to Game of Thrones

UPDATE:  This contest has closed.  The winners will be informed soon!

Exciting times are ahead for gamers who are also fans of George R.R Martin’s Game of Thrones series! On May 15th a new role playing game set in the world of Westeros hits store shelves and it’s shaping up to be quite the spectacle.  We’ve even done a bit of a preview for the game a while back but you can learn all about the game over at the official website. With new characters, a complete storyline endorsed by Martin himself and the ability, for the first time, to emerse yourself in this amazing universe- there’s no way you’ll be missing out on this game if you own an Xbox or PS3 console system.  Here’s a look at what you’ll get:

At HBO Watch we’d like to share the love and excitement fans are feeling about this game by giving away THREE copies before the game’s launch on May 15th.  How can you be one of those lucky three gamers?  Here’s is your quest noble Sers:

Step 1: Like HBO Watch on Facebook OR Follow Us on Twitter

Step 2: Leave a comment below (your email is required) telling us what type of character you’ll build in the Game of Thrones RPG.  Be sure to sign your comment with a mention of your Twitter handle that you’ve followed us with or the name you’re going by on Facebook.

Step 3: Pray to the God (or gods) of your choosing for luck!

We’ll randomly select three honorable commenters below and double check that they’re either following us on Twitter and/or Facebook. If all seems legit we’ll contact that person (via the email address you used to comment!) and ask for your address and the game version of your choosing (Xbox or PS3). That’s it! It all seems so simple because it truly is!


How will you “randomly select” a winner?

Each comment is given a unique number. We will use a random number selector to choose a number from that set of comment numbers.

Does the quality of my comment matter?

Not technically.  But since you’re writing a comment anyway why not let us know how big of a badass you’re going to be in this game!  Are you going to be a huge oaf like Ser Gregor Clegane?  Are you going to take up magic like the Red Priestess?  We want to know what you’re planning on doing with this new RPG!

Can I enter twice?!

No. We have ways of determining that you have only been entered into the contest once.  If you attempt to do so we will send not one but TWO faceless men in your general direction with orders to make your life a living torment. Do you really want to be looking over your shoulder for the rest of your life?  Of course you don’t.  Have some honor, people!

Can I win if I’m not in the United States?

Unfortunately we aren’t able to offer this contest to people outside of the US (sorry Canada and UK readers! Please don’t decapitate me!) The prize providers of this contest have explicitly stated that we cannot offer it to non-US residents for legal reasons. It’s not just because we’re too cheap to pay the shipping costs I promise!  Sorry again.

When will I know if I won?

On May 15th we’ll officially close the comments on this article and initiate the random drawing at noon that day. I’ll send an email to the three winners and update this article at that time.

If you have any more questions feel free to shoot us an email here and I’ll most likely post the answers here. Good luck everyone and may the gods be with you (the old AND the new). We look forward to hearing about your new characters in the Game of Thrones RPG releasing May 15th. Still not sure about the game? Check this out:

  • Ricardo Felix

    I would probably build a Dothraki character. Love their ability with the sword and whip.

  • I can’t not make a member of the Night’s Watch… I want a stone cold badass, like if Sandor had been sent to the wall. Let the mayhem begin!

    My twitter handle is @homelesszombie
    Valar Morghulis!

  • Andrwe

    Totally going with mors! Skinchanging?? yeahh!!!

    twitter handle @broski_singh

  • Sandy MCPhee

    Hey, Twitter handle is @SandyMcPhee1

    I would build a wildling character who pretends to defect to the Night’s Watch, but is actually there to spy for weaknesses for the King Beyond The Wall.


  • Greg Davidson

    Twitter handle: @gratefuldawgg

    I would like a physically gifted warrior with a splash of magic, just a splash.

  • Zachary Rabinovitz

    My twitter is @zachrab88

    I would be a conqueror. I would try and be as aggressive as possible!

  • Oh mighty god of old, hear my plea.
    Might i not win this game of ye.
    I would play it fiercly and it will be loved.
    I will nurture my character to become a bold knight.

    So please god, help me.

    Via facebook my name is my own

  • Chad Walker


    If possible my character will be a rogue sellsword.

    My Facebook name is Chad Walker

  • Peter

    My twitter is @wordlyChimp.

    Mors will probably use a greatsword and heavy armor like The Hound. I’m looking forward to his skinchanging as well.

    The Red Priest Alester… either a sellsword or more likely a Water-Dancer. Fear cuts deeper than swords!

  • Lawrence Bradley

    This game looks great, would build a rouge.. Twitter is @trunks1030

  • Logan killen

    Im loge18 on twitter .

    My character will be a rogue from the North. I’ll name her Arya for sure!

  • My husband would love this as a birthday surprise! He would definitely play as a mage, or take the black like Jon Snow.
    I follow on Twitter @txtingmrdarcy

  • Kelly(lilmissrenner)

    Your head shall be on a spike for this! ;^) Please let us know if u will have competitions for the UK. Thanks

  • Jeffrey

    What an amazing game, Im so glad I was one of the lucky few who got a closed beta version at I really enjoyed playing this new version. I also own a Genesis copy, and I can tell you that you wont be disappointed with this new version if you are a fan of the first one as I am.

  • jmg

    twitter handle @jeffadaheffa

    If possible I would make someone like the hound

  • Jefd

    I would be an earthy man with ties to nature and woodlore so more than likely I would choose Dothraki, but DAMN I’m terrible at video games and probably wouldn’t get much past the character creation part of the game.

    • Charlie Harwood

      Dothraki sounds cool Jef. My character would be a knight, but not just any knight. He would be a master of the sword like Syrio; possess mysterious and magical powers like Melisandre; honorable and loyal like Ned; smart and witty like Tyrion; and an overall badass like Arya.

      By the way, i’m not entering in the contest. I just thought this would be fun!

  • I would be a man.


  • Rob

    I would be a Dothraki

    My FB name is Breedeveld.photografica

  • Don Schmidt

    I would be king of North like Rob Stark. @dschmidt1

    • Don Schmidt

      I would be the King of the North like Rob Stark. @donaldschmidt1

  • Michelle

    I would make an honorable man like Ned Stark without powers so to speak but with goodness, morals and a reallllllllly big sword. lol


  • Christina Plummer

    I would want to create a character like Brienne of Tarth. She’s fiercely loyal and is just as tough as the guys!

  • Taylor

    Nevermind. I’m Canadian.

    • Sorry Taylor. I anticipate there will be more in your position! I promise our next contest will include Canucks and Brits.

      • Taylor

        All good! Thanks.

  • Nancy Tomasheski

    How wonderful!
    I have always wanted to be a knight. I’d like to say I’d be loyal – and I will, to some extent – but I expect I’ll be a sellsword at heart.

  • Dina

    Queens need to rule sure and strong and never to submit. My Queen will have the beauty of the kaleesi, the strength of Catelyn with a little “magic” like the RED Goddess! But she will be DARK in color, with the green dragon eyes!!

  • James Ashwill

    I will make a Mors character b/c I want to be able to use the Skinchanger power! Oh yeah!

    • James Ashwill

      my facebook name is the same: James Ashwill

  • Taylor

    My twitter handle is @taylor_chadwick

    I would probably build A Night’s Watch character that specializes in hand to hand combat. He’d be good at talking himself out of dangerous situations but prepared if he needs to defend himself.

    If I had the option of making him a Warg, I would do that too. Warg myself into some birds and see where the enemy is hiding.
