It’s official. HBO is breaking all our hearts by refusing to release the final season of Game of Thrones until 2019. And judging from previous seasons, it’s not like it’ll release in January of 2019, either. So how are we supposed to spend our time until then??? Well, if you feel like reading a book, here are a few recommendations to help with the withdrawal symptoms.
A few quick caveats before diving in to the graphic below. Almost every single recommendation below is something created by an old, white guy. And that seriously sucks. So next week, I’m going to try to put together a similar graphic featuring more women and minorities.
Second, there are only video game recommendations. Although there is a Game of Thrones board game (several, in fact), none of them capture the feel of negotiation and backstabbing that the television show and book series are known for. (As an extra recommendation, if you are looking for that sort of thing, the first game that comes to mind would probably be Diplomacy.)
Finally, you probably seriously disagree with this list – which is fine! This is just my list. And if you feel like anything was left off, leave a comment! Let me know what I missed, what you’d add, or any other recommendations you have.
