By GamesRecon

It’s astonishing how George R.R. Martin has envisioned such a massive universe filled with mystical creatures, intriguing storylines, and even more complex characters. If you think you know what’s going to happen next, we suggest you think again. In the intricate world of Westeros, lines between fact and fiction often blur and every character is fully capable of surprising you at every turn.

There were certainly times when as readers or viewers, we wanted to curse at the screen and scream at the characters to make better choices. Whether it was Jon Snow joining the Night’s Watch or Sansa pining over cruel Joffrey, numerous such moments made us wonder what would we do if faced with such a situation.

While the books and the HBO show Game of Thrones feature many unique players from Westeros, there is a whole other side of the story where you can be a player and express your ambition for the coveted Iron Throne. Here’s a list of all the games set in the world of Game of Thrones that you can play today and see how you’d fare in the wild, wild Westeros.

Blood of Dragons

Blood of Dragons MUSH

  • Developer:
  • Year of Release: 2007

As the very first game to be released based in the world of George R.R. Martin’s complex world offers a raw worldview of the characters and the overarching story. The show Game of Thrones came after the game was released, making Blood of Dragons based entirely on the books. It is a role-playing game meant to be played via text messages. Back in 2007, there were no WhatsApp or instant messaging platforms like it, so people usually relied on texts and SMS to communicate.

Game of Thrones: Genesis

  • Developer: Cyanide
  • Year of Release: 2011

Meant to be played on a computer, the world of video games based on Game of Thrones expanded with this strategy-centric game. Users can put themselves in the shoes of any character from the vast houses of Westeros and battle their claim to the Iron Throne. This interactive game gives a deeper insight into how players can actually feel like they are living the Westerosi life while keeping an eye on the prize. Moreover, the game acts as a prequel to the show, giving users an insight into the past that molded the present of Westeros.

Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series

  • Developer: Telltale Games
  • Year of Release: 2014

Originally published for Android, iOS, Microsoft Windows, OS X, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One, the game is a graphic adventure through the murky lanes of Westeros involving betrayal and murderous plots at every turn. It is a six-part game set in the world of the show Game of Thrones.

At the same time, it does not feature the main houses as seen in the show. Rather, it focuses on other houses that lost the War of the Five Kings. Interestingly, every action and decision of the player charts a different path in the game for the story to continue.

Game of Thrones: Conquest

  • Developer: Turbine, Inc.
  • Year of Release: 2017

Much like the HBO show, players have to form houses, rear armies, and eventually consolidate the seven kingdoms and reign over the Iron Throne in Game of Thrones: Conquest. It all boils down to your cunning and the intricate strategy you put into action to achieve the ultimate aim of ruling the powerful lands of Westeros. It is a free-to-play game that challenges users to put their best foot forward and rule with an iron fist.

Reigns: Game of Thrones

  • Developer: Nerial
  • Year of Release: 2018

If a character like Cersei Lannister, Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, Tyrion Lannister, or Sansa Stark is your favorite, then you are going to love this game. It sits at an interesting intersection of Nerial’s other Reigns franchise along with a mix of Game of Thrones characters that appear in the game. Both worlds collide to give users something intriguing to work with.

The ultimate goal, as usual, is to claim the Iron Throne and stay in power for as long as possible. Reigns: Game of Thrones is all about testing your decision-making skills and your ability to see the bigger picture. As you move along, you make decisions based on presented proposals to power up.

Game of Thrones: Winter is Coming

Game of Thrones: Winter is Coming Strategic Gameplay

  • Developer: Yoozoo Games
  • Year of Release: 2019

While Game of Thrones: Winter is Coming was originally released as a browser game, users can now play the game on their mobile phones and on the platform Steam. You play as a lord or lady from one of Westeros’ seven kingdoms and move up in the game by training warriors, recruiting people, and forging alliances with other players.

Players are welcomed under the circumstances where Eddard Stark is dead, but as if all seven kingdoms, not just the North, had seceded. A dragon can be gained in the game as an egg that can be hatched and then raised until it is large enough to be useful in battle and air searches.

Since it was released relatively recently, it outperforms the other games based in the world of Westeros. This is a multiplayer online real-time strategy game that puts your wits to the ultimate test. Whether you can maneuver tactics like a Lannister or stay honorable like a Stark, it all depends on how you manage your house and strategize your move to take over the seven kingdoms.

Game of Thrones: The Iron Throne

Game of Thrones: The Iron Throne

  • Developer: Dire Wolf Digital
  • Year of Release: 2019

This board game for 2-5 players aged 18 and above based on the HBO television series Game of Thrones employs Cosmic Encounter principles and lasts 30-60 minutes. Players vie for control of Westeros by any means necessary, including but not limited to lying, deceiving, stealing, bribing, and fighting for one of five houses: Stark, Lannister, Targaryen, Baratheon, or Tyrell.

Each house has a distinct persona with powers that correspond to their representation in the program. The aim is to extend five of your power to your opponents’ House cards and seize the Iron Throne.

All Game of Thrones Games that Got Cancelled

Game of Thrones: Ascent

  • Developer: Disruptor Beam
  • Year of Release: 2013

This mobile video game further expands the world of Westeros as it includes influences from the HBO show Game of Thrones as well. Game of Thrones: Ascent featured intricate quests and tasks that enable players to build their houses from scratch and configure enemy moves to keep themselves protected at all costs. However, the game was eventually shut down in 2019, making it difficult to find a version of it available today.

Game of Thrones: Beyond the Wall

  • Developer: Behaviour Interactive
  • Year of Release: 2019

Game of Thrones: Beyond the Wall stood out of the rest as it offered a worldview other than one focused on the Iron Throne. In the game, players ventured beyond the wall of Wildling territory to complete missions. Mors Westford is the name of the hero character players assume. It was canceled and removed from platforms last year.

Game of Thrones: Seven Kingdoms

  • Developer: Bigpoint
  • Meant for: Web browser

Game of Thrones: Seven Kingdoms might have been a great choice for players who don’t like playing with the computer since this game would have featured player vs player combat. In fact, there were plans to let players form alliances in the form of lesser houses and test their skills in community building as well. Due to issues with the license and the company mergers, the game never saw the light of day.

Game of Thrones: Season Two

  • Developer: Telltale Games
  • Meant for: Microsoft Windows, macOS, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, iOS, Android

Reportedly, the first part of the game Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series did not receive as great reviews as it aspired, so all further sequels to the game were eventually canceled.
