Game of Thrones Cluedo is here

If ever there was a board game and TV series that were a match made in heaven, it's Game of Thrones and Cluedo.

And, luckily, the famous, murderous board game and the hit, murderous HBO series are teaming up for Cluedo: Game of Thrones.

The game will launch in the UK in October and will feature a special double-sided game board, with one side seeing mysteries set in the confines of the Red Keep and the other on the streets of Meereen, with nine different 'rooms' laid out for each in which the murder may have taken place.

There'll be six treacherous weapons: the Crossbow, Poison Vial, Arakh, Faceless Man, Catspaw Assassin Dagger and a Battle Axe.

And, the most important question: who was responsible for the terrible crime?

The game will feature twelve suspects, with six in the Red Keep and six in Meereen: Jamie Lannister, Sansa Stark, Margaery Tyrell, Tyrion Lannister, Cersei Lannister, Petyr Baelish for the former and Daenerys Targaryen, Daario Naharis, Hizdahr Zo Loraq, Jorah Mormont, Grey Worm, Missandei for the latter.

Meanwhile, there'll be 21 intrigue cards - including 13 Master of Whisperers and 8 White Walkers.

Claire Simon, Marketing Manager at Winning Moves who are launching the game in partnership with HBO Global Licensing, commented, “We are delighted to be launching Game of Thrones Cluedo and we know it will be well received by fans of the show and our other Game of Thrones games. There is always an element of mystery in the show and Cluedo is the perfect way to bring these elements home in a fun, challenging game.”

Cluedo: Game of Thrones will retail for £29.99 from the HBO EU shop, so get writing those letters to Santa right now.
