It’s Game of Thrones time again! Game of Thrones time is one of my favorite seasons of the year. I kind of hope George RR Martin doesn’t catch up with book writing because I’m happy to see this show go on forever.
Before you settle in to watch each new episode on HBO each week, make sure you’re prepared for the next Game of Thrones season with the following must-have Game of Thrones items:
Game of Thrones Items You Need
If you haven’t read the books, why not? Sure, they are long, and some seriously could have used a bit of editing, but for the most part, the books are excellent! Any Game of Thrones TV fan should read the Song of Ice and Fire BooksASAP. They include quite a bit of variation from the show- it’s almost like an alternate reality in spots.
The Previous Seasons
If it’s been a while since you’ve watched season 1, now is the perfect time to catch up before the new season starts. It’s about time for me to re-watch all of the previous seasons. I almost don’t remember what happens.
These House Motto Pendants
I love aluminum stamped pendants and jewelry. This seller offers a wide range of house mottos and other sayings from the book. I would choose House Tyrell’s motto, “Growing strong,” or House Greyjoy’s motto: “We do not sow.” I particularly like the Greyjoy motto. It sounds so vicious.
Chose your house and defend your position while playing the Game of Thrones board game.
The Board Game
This is probably my favorite board game of all time. It is competitive, long, intense, and the most fun you can have without actually taking over other countries. If you like competitive games, then you must add this to your home game library.
These Shot Glasses
A lot of the Game of Thrones depends on alcohol. Use these shot glasses to drink these cocktails inspired by the women of Game of Thrones while playing one of the many Game of Thrones drinking games.
This Coloring Book
Violence-themed coloring is fun.
These coasters look just like the wax seal from each of the major Game of Thrones houses. I am partial to House Tyrell and House Greyjoy, but I would happily rest my drink on any of these coasters.
This Quote Poster
This is one of my favorite Game of Thrones quotes because it is said by Tyrion, one of the best characters, and it’s about books, my favorite things.
There are a lot of food references in A Song of Ice and Fire (not as much in the TV show, because too much time is taken up with violence and sex). The food always sounds so amazing. These dishes would be perfect to serve at your Game of Thrones party!
Serve these foods with a side of Game of Thrones-themed cocktails.
This Cozy Blanket
I like blankets, I like maps, and I like the Game of Thrones. So, this is pretty much sold right now.
This Three Eyed Raven Beer
Each year, Ommegang comes out with an official Game of Thrones Beer. This one goes on sale in April, and will likely sell out in just a few weeks, so make sure you watch out for it before you have to pay thousands of dollars for it on e-Bay.
