Travel to the legendary lands of Westeros where you buy, sell, and trade locations from the seven Kingdoms.

Even the money and graphics are GoT theme with 42 gold Dragon and 53 silver stags cardboard Coins. To get a better atmosphere, the game has an iron throne card holder that comes with a musical stand that plays the GoT theme song.

Stranger Things

They say nothing interesting happens in Hawkins, Indiana. However, when Will Byers goes missing, you and your friends try to find him and along the way avoid becoming trapped in the upside down. Rather than houses and hotel, this variant gives you forts and hideouts. Meanwhile Community Chest and Chance cards are now Walkie-Talkie and Blinking Lights. The tokens are 80s-inspired and look to be taken straight from the upside down.
