Gameshow of Thrones- Send a Raven to the seven Kingdoms and tell them to gather at the Speakeasy for the most serious of battles to decide once and for all who will sit on the Iron Throne. Bannermen will represent their houses with pride and the force of heckling because who needs a dragon when you can heckle House Greyjoy. Side splitting laughter from start to finish and an incredible show to be a part of with non stop audience participation. However, beware as every battle has it’s casualties and given this is Game of Thrones there is a real chance you will die along with every other character from the story.

The rounds are well thought out and we were lucky enough to have 4 comedians who were all in, making the Game that much more entertaining. Host and Gamemaker Isabella Valette is both quick witted and engaging, drawing you in and capturing your attention much like the time Daenerys sat in the fire with her eggs and emerged naked with three dragons.

If you are still reading this trying to decide if this show is worth your gold the answer is YES and if your Fringe funds are dry then hurry up and ask the Iron Bank for a loan. just tell them you’re a Lanister and they’ll know you’re good for it, then go buy a ticket because if you don’t you’ll have more regrets than Catelyn Stark at the Red Wedding.

I’d just like to point out we also had a cameo appearance by Ed Sheran yeah sure he was in the next Kingdom over at the House of Adelaide Oval but kudos to Isabella for organising that because the authenticity was outstanding.

I have so many favourite parts of this show and lets face it I loved it as much as I love Khal Drogo. But let’s take a minute to appreciate what a game of Snog, Marry, Kill would look like in the Lannister House
Snog- my sister,
Marry –my brothers widow
Kill- my Dad

So while you are waiting for the finale season to eventually make its way to our screens, do yourself a favour and go get your GOT fix with this incredibly clever and funny show but hurry up because WINTER IS COMING and so is the end of the Fringe season.
