If murder, deception and elaborate plotting is your idea of a good time, I have news for you! Nine years and eight seasons of a mythically successful television show and book series have spawned a vast number of games that can keep your mind in Westeros despite the end of the television series. In fact, there are probably enough options to keep you busy until George R.R. Martin finally drops the final novel. And that could be quite a while.

With a wide range of tabletops, mods, and original ventures to chose from, you can find your chance to slay wights, pursue adventure and claim your rightful place on the Iron Throne. If you have what it takes.

So, take your pick! Here’s an extensive list of epic Game of Thrones games.

Tabletop Game Of Thrones Games

1. A Game of Thrones: The Board Game

Choose which of the Great Houses of Westeros you wish to represent, and vie against your friends and enemies as you plot to claim the throne through diplomacy, strategy, warfare—any means necessary, really.

Bonus: Get the Mother of Dragons expansion pack.

2. A Game of Thrones Catan

What is there to say? If you like the strategy of Catan, this adaptation featuring the Brothers of the Night’s Watch, wildlings, and the challenges of the unwieldy north beyond the wall is for you.

3. A Game of Thrones: Hand of the King Card Game

A card game passed on the cunning and treachery of Game of Thrones, set in King’s Landing. Keep up with its fast pace while courting the great houses for support, scheming with Varys for influence, and brokering deals.

4. A Game of Thrones LCG

Step into the ranks of Game of Thrones’s most devious power players and take your chance to seize power. Each round of this LCG, players take new plot cards and choose from challenge types to take down your opponents.

5. Clue Game of Thrones

Can you follow the clues to solve the murder? I cannot think of a more perfect classic board game adaptation for this show. A double-sided board lets you play in either the Red Keep or Mereen.

6. Game of Thrones Chess

I don’t think there could be anything more appropriate than a Game of Thrones Chess set. The ruthlessness, the classism, the strategery!

7. Game of Thrones Playing Cards

Just a normal deck of cards. Decked out with the most ruthless Kings, Queens and Jacks ever. Some characters might take issue with who got to be Kings and Queens.

8. HBO Game of Thrones Trivia Game

9. Monopoly Game of Thrones Board Game

A gorgeously customized adaptation of the classic game to keep us all busy until the next book drops.

10. Risk Game of Thrones Strategy Board Game

11. What Do You Meme?

An expansion pack full of your favorite characters from the Seven Kingdoms to add to your next round of What Do You Meme?, a Cards Against Humanity–style card game full of meme-like phrases to be matched with pop culture images. They’re not shy about the adults-only warning, so it’s bound to be good.

Digital Game of Thrones Games

The description says the creators strove to recreate Westeros as precisely as possible based on the books, so it’s bound to be detailed and fascinating.

24. Mount and Blade: Warband—A Clash of Kings

This mod was specifically inspired by the second novel of George R.R. Martin’s book series, A Clash of Kings.

25. Reigns: Game of Thrones

Choose from among the power players of Westeros to try your hand at seizing the throne in a rapid fire series of questions by swiping yes/no.

26. Skyrim—The Game of Thrones Mods

There are several Game of Thrones mods for Skyrim—too many to justify listing separately here. Follow the link for Winter is Coming Cloaks, Sounds of Westeros, Dorthraki Arakh, and more.
