Everybody Dies With the Axe in Game of Thrones Cluedo

By Gary Cutlack on at

The Christmas push is underway whether you like it or not and even if you're still in flip-flops, and here's what you're probably going to get three of this year if you've been banging on about the HBO fantasy series endlessly of late -- officially licensed Game of Thrones Cluedo.

Fans who know what any of this means will be happy that it's a double-sided board, one featuring the insides of the Red Keep with the setting the action in the wider location of the city of Meereen, and, unusually for the brutal TV show, the game will feature Cluedo's usual hunt for just the one killer.

And to keep the theme alive, there won't be anything like as gentlemanly in here as quietly bopping a redundant member of the family over the head with a candlestick as the method of death. The weapon list includes a Crossbow, the Poison Vial, an Arakh, murder by a Faceless Man, the Catspaw Assassin Dagger and a quick and grateful death at the hands of the Battle Axe.

It'll be on sale in the UK via HBO's merchandising site this October. [Shortlist]
