HBO’s Game of Thrones is an international obsession based on the popular fictional series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin. With a budget surpassing most feature films, the show has set the record for most Emmy wins, including Outstanding Drama Series, along with 25 others. The expansive cast gained quick fame after the first season and can now be seen hanging out together IRL on their personal Instagram accounts. They make a splash at every ComicCon and release creative interactive games to coincide with new seasons. #GoT consistently trends on Twitter, and the show’s fantastical characters make for great Internet memes and Halloween costumes. Spoiler alert… winter is coming.
