5 Silly ‘Game of Thrones’ Tie-Ins

April 17, 2014

“A Lannister always pays his debts,” even if he spends all of his money on silly Game of Thrones stuff. And, don’t forget that we recently wrote about the newest (not so silly) Game of Thrones beer to hit the market.

• Luxury cruise line Crystal Cruises offers a special Game of Thrones-themed voyage. The half-day trip leads fans on a tour of the show’s filming locations in Northern Ireland. In addition to visiting a real castle, passengers also get to see some of the cast’s costumes and try their hand at archery.

Game of Thrones Lego• The series definitely isn’t for kids but that hasn¹t stopped a company called Citizen Brick from creating a series of LEGO figures based on various characters. However, to avoid a lawsuit, they’ve changed all the names and have dubbed the set “Dragon Sword Fighter Force.” There’s even a figure named “Sir Typesalot” that bears a striking resemblance to Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin.

Game of Thrones Dragon EggFire-breathing monsters (probably) won’t pop out of these eggs but they’d look great in the office of any wannabe “Mother of Dragons.”

• There’s also a Game of Thrones lunchbox, although your average tyke might prefer one with Dora the Explorer or Spider-Man. It’s sold by Dark Horse Comics, who warn customers that, “Winter is coming! You’d better pack a lunch!”

Game of Thrones Wedding Cake• Bad things tend to happen to anyone who dares matrimony in Westeros (Red Weddings, Purple Weddings, etc.). Nevertheless, that hasn’t discouraged plenty of couples in the real world from staging their own Game of Thrones-themed weddings. Sean Parker (a.k.a. the guy who created Napster) got married last year and spent $10 million of a Game of Thrones-inspired wedding. And as part of a promotion for the show’s third season DVD release, UK-based chocolate shop Choccywoccydodah also created this elaborate cake inspired by the infamous “Red Wedding.”

Not sure what kind of taste a GOT wedding is… or what is says about your upcoming marriage.
