We are going to give away four different prize packs to one follower on each of our four social media sites. All you have to do is follow us for a chance to win. If you follow us at each of our social media sites, you will have four different chances to win!

The prize packs will consist of one (1) House Sigil Magnet Set OR one (1) Character Magnet Set plus two (2) House Sigil Embroidery Patches (either Stark, Lannister, Targaryen, or Baratheon).

We will have more swag to give away in other upcoming contests, so stay tuned. Or you can order any of Dark Horse’s Game of Thrones products now at their website or at the HBO Shop.

    Oh, cool! Open to international readers… I’ve always thought these were for people on the other side of the pond.

    Smashing! It was rather disappointing when only those situated in the colonies could have participated, do appreciate the international character…

    Only one of our competitions so far was US-only, and that was because HBO themselves were shipping the award and the laws of sending that particular content overseas were prohibitive. Good luck, everyone!

    Mormegil, according to Ran, it is just based on the rumors that have been reported here and elsewhere.

    OT: I found this pic of Pyke, which looks authentic, but is from a Polish website, so I can’t be 100% sure.

    the goat,

    doesn’t look as good as last year’s cgi-castles I think.

    Too late to edit but I now see it is confirmed in the other thread that it’s fanmade (phew).
