As divisive as the season eight ending was, Game of Thrones remains one of the most popular fantasy franchises of all time . Pair it with Settlers of Catan – one of the most popular board games ever – and you’ve got yourself a strong contender for the Iron Throne of tabletop games. If that’s piqued your interest, we’ve got some more news that’s even more exciting than the death of Joffrey Baratheon: A Game of Thrones Catan is now on sale for 43% off at Zavvi.
One of the things that fans of of A Song of Ice and Fire have praised most (beyond the sex, swords, and dragons) is the amount of work that’s gone into the world building. Westeros has been wonderfully fleshed out with a deep history and so many parties with conflicting interests, which, when you think about it, makes it the ideal pairing for Catan’s strategy-driven gameplay
In this game, the Brothers of the Night Watch are seeking a new Lord Commander. In order to decide their new leader, each new contender must seek to tame the lands of The Gift – an untouched region south of the Wall bestowed to The Watch many thousands of years ago. This, of course, is where the classic resource-gathering, settlement-developing fun of Catan comes in.
Whether you’re a seasoned Catan player and you’re looking for a new way to enjoy an old favourite, or you’re a Game of Thrones fan who has yet to learn how to play Catan, and is just looking for a way to fill time until House of the Dragon is released, A Game of Thrones: Catan is well worth the offer price of $72.99.

This offer won’t be around forever though, so if you’re interested, don’t miss your chance to get it on the cheap.
