This Spring HBO and Dire Wolf Digital are bringing to life Game of Thrones in the board game format. Called Oathbreaker, the social deduction game is a game of deception for 5 to 8 players. Similar to Clue, but maybe even better, the game is about players enacting secret agendas and players determining who is a real ally or enemy.
The game will cost $35 and each game should take 30 to 45 minutes. Not bad if you want to pretend to be a princess or lord, eh?
Check out the press release for the full details below.
“I did warn you not to trust me.” – Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish
Denver, CO – MARCH 12, 2019 – Dire Wolf Digital and HBO® are proud to announce Game of Thrones: Oathbreaker, a social deduction game of ambition and deceit coming to your tabletop just in time for the final season of the hit HBO® original series!
Game of Thrones: Oathbreaker is a game of deception for 5-8 players. One player claims the Iron Throne. The others become Lords and Ladies of the great houses of Westeros, scheming for the King’s favor, for power, or to bring a dynasty to its knees.
Loyalists square off against traitorous conspirators in a game where secret agendas intertwine, and only the wise can tell allies from enemies.
“We’re longtime fans of everything Game of Thrones” says Scott Martins, President of Dire Wolf Digital, “and we jumped at the chance to work with HBO® to translate the tension and intrigue of one of the best shows in the world to a game that fans of every level of gaming experience can enjoy. Betrayal’s never been so much fun.”
Lavishly illustrated with photos from the hit HBO® original series, Game of Thrones: Oathbreaker captures all the twists and turns 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!
