The Dark Horse Giveaway Grand Finale: Great Houses of Westeros

finebanner

Throughout the week, we’ve been celebrating the Great Houses of Game of Thrones with a bounty of amazing swag provided by Dark Horse. However, there aren’t enough weekdays to properly cover each of the houses. The Starks, the Targaryens, and the Lannisters seem to get the lions’ share of the love (and the dragons’ and the wolves’ shares, as well), but there are more families in Westeros, and there are those who don’t fit into any House. There are those outcast by their noble kin and those who are something else entirely.

Today, for our finale, we’re sharing a huge amount of prizes with you, our readers, so check it out beneath the cut!

Our Grand Prize today features one of the House outcasts: Tyrion. One of Tyrion’s  biggest moments in the series was leading the charge on the Blackwater, and that moment is preserved in this incredible limited-edition statue.

The Dark Horse Grand Finale Prize Winner will win this Tyrion in Battle Statue, which normally has a list price of $199.99:

Tyrion

 

Jon Snow’s Package: This major prize pack includes the Jon Snow collectible figureHouse Sigil Magnet Set, House Arryn Embroidered Patch, and the Season 2 House Sigil Coasters.

    1. Outstanding! Big thanks to WOTW & Darkhorse for making several fans Christmas extra special.

      Good luck everyone!

      I swear my allegiance to WOTW! You guys and gals rock!

    2. 1. The giveaway is open to USA residents only.

      I would swear allegiance to Euron Greyjoy, because he at least made people pray all over the world of ice and fire.

      🙁

    3. Hmm…who do I support? Well, Baratheon, Greyjoy and Stark. But who would I swear allegiance to? Martell. They have it easiest down there in Dorne.

    4. Marco Polo is the latest attempt by another network to try and cash in on Thrones! Give it up people! There is only one series that matters!!! 🙂

    5. Varys is my man. I swear fealty to the realm, at whatever cost. I honor the Stark’s sense of justice, but money is power and this game is played best by those who can afford the losses. Lannisters aren’t to be trusted, but admired. Baratheons are unequivocally great men, if perhaps not the wisest rulers. And the Greyjoys serve a purpose i think none have yet come to reckon with, an ancient and very important forgotten task held by strong survivors. Men after my own heart. And what can i say of the Targaryens that hasn’t already been said? It’s a mummer’s show over there is Essos, and that makes it all the more intriguing to watch what’s coming. Winter is coming as they say, but none say it all. Petty squables, and together these families (together with the various Tullieses and Arryns and Dornishmen, too many to mention) make us whole and strong enough to battle what’s to come. So i reinterate: I swear fealty to the realm.
      (This giveaway has been so cool, a chance to stretch my stagnant nerd muscles in the off season. Thanks so much for this.)

    6. Amazing – beautiful merchandise! Love all of it!

      I would swear allegiance to House Martell. They seem to be slightly saner than the rest.

        Quote  Reply

    7. would love to win any of these prizes, you guys are really awesome. I’d either be sworn to house stark or house manderly, either way i know about the promise!

    8. I need those shot glasses. Now. 🙂

      I pledge allegiance to House Stark, Brienne of Tarth, Davos Seaworth and the watchers at WoTW!

      Thank you to Dark Horse and the site for this fun giveaway and good luck to everyone.

    9. I would swear allegiance to House Manderly or House Reed. At this point in the story, swearing allegiance to the Starks would be problematic.

      Thanks for the swag contest, Dark Horse!

    10. Thanks, Dark Horse and WotW!

      As for Houses to swear allegiance to…in the days before the main show/books timeline the Starks would be my top choice, but given how things are going for them, it’s not a great time to be Stark allied.

      So: Martell or Tyrell. Relatively wealthy and prosperous Houses, with the Tyrells in decent standing at the moment and people in Dorne relatively sheltered from the chaos (for the moment) and generally more woman-friendly than much of Westeros it seems.

    11. Thank you DarkHorse, but no one gives me DarkHorse merch. I will take my DarkHorse merch as I remain loyal to House Greyjoy! We do not sizzle and What is dead may never dizzle!

    12. Honestly, I love all of the families, because they are doing anything they can to survive in times of war, and sometimes that means doing something that you never thought you would do, and sometimes that means making a lot of sacrifices. I swear allegiance to House Stark, Winter Is Coming, always. Thank you Dark Horse for these fabulous prizes, I hope I am lucky to win one of them. Take care.

    13. I would swear my allegiance to the Night’s Watch and the realm and take the black, if not then House Stark and or House Baratheon of Dragonstone

      Thanks Dark Horse and & WOTW for all the wonderful gifts and the chances to get them ☺️

        Quote  Reply

    14. Wow! I’d love any one of these–especially the shot glass set or the Jon Snow pack. As much as I adore the Khaleesi, my allegiance is with House Stark.

        Quote  Reply

    15. I would have to swear fealty to House Martell. Unique traditions, fierce warriors, and the Water Gardens sound like a great place to spend some vacation time. Most of all, the Martell’s have patience.

        Quote  Reply

    16. I don’t think I have a favorite house. I definitely wouldn’t swear allegiance to any of them. They’re all deeply flawed. So let’s just go with, “I like the Lannisters because it’s fun to analyze/discuss the myriad issues of each individual and how said issues inform the incredibly fucked up dynamic between them all.”

        Quote  Reply

    17. I’d probably swear allegiance to House Martell! Interesting family and I just like the differences between Dorne and the rest of Westeros.

      Thank you for all of the giveaways!

    18. No matter how many times I read the books I still feel like Jon Snow. I know nothing! Thank you Dark Horse for the chance to win some awesome ASOIAF goodies. Thank you Watchers on the Wall for giving me more to read than just the books.
      I love the ASOIAF books and the alternate universe Game Of Thrones show.

    19. “Oh my sweet summer child, what do you know about fear? Fear is for the winter, when the snows fall a hundred feet deep. Fear is for the long night, when the sun hides for years and children are born and live and die, all in darkness. That is the time for fear, my little lord”

    20. It’s House Baratheon for me, the house of stubborn loud mouths. And winning this would make it so much easier because I could give some of it to my dad for Christmas.

        Quote  Reply

    21. House Tyrell will always be my favorite. They know how to play the game in a more subtle way and win the people over with love and kindness rather than force and fear. I even have the (book) sigil as a tattoo.
      Thanks Dark Horse for the prizes! I hope I win one this time!

        Quote  Reply

    22. House Stark! House Lannister! House Greyjoy! A kraken always pays his debts in the winter.

      But really though, I would be happy if I somehow won any of these. Thank you Dark Horse for your generosity!

        Quote  Reply

    23. I swear allegiance to House Stark and House Stannis Baratheon. The only two houses that actually care about the Wilding threat beyond The Wall. Even though, with Stannis is was mainly for political gain.

        Quote  Reply

    24. I admire the innate goodness of the Starks, but then I am drawn to the “family first, last, and always” angle of the Lannisters.

      So … House Stannister? Heck, I even get to throw a little Stannis support in there.

    25. Thank you WotW and Dark Horse for these fabulous prizes.
      If I were apart of this world I’d want to be Lynesse Mormont. Born into House Tyrell and married to Jorah Mormont. After the disgrace of my husband the only allegiance I have is to who ever can afford all of my desires. My husband and each man after him seem to fall into ruin because they feel I deserve everything they have and don’t have. My allegiance goes to high-borns like Arya Stark that need help or money. I’d also align myself with Brienne of Tarth and Jaqen H’ghar and the other faceless men of Braavos.

    26. House Stark all the way. I won’t say exactly why, since it would be a bit spoilery (even if only speculative), but I think that family is even more important than many people think. Plus, I love wolves!

      I will thank Dark Horse if I win. 😉

    27. Thanks to Dark Horse for the amazing giveaways! All of them are terrific prizes to any GOT fan. I’m a House Stark bannerwoman all the way. Each member of the family has strength and honor. My favorite – Jon Snow. I really don’t care what his real parentage is – he is a Stark through and through. I don’t know what the end will be but I know that he will play a big part!

    28. Lurvely assortment of prizes to tempt this smallfolk villager with – would welcome any one of ’em at my hovel.

      Thanks fer all yer hard work Watchers on the Wall.

    29. I thought I’d want to be in House Stark but seeing as how no one can stay alive, I’d throw my lot in with the Tyrell’s b/c Highgarden sounds rad

        Quote  Reply

    30. Oh, I’d love to be a part of House Bolton.
      Flaying people alive? Going hunting with Ramsay? Torturing prisoners and breaking them? Eating Frey Pie? Sounds like a lot of fun!

      Lots of thanks to WOTW and to Dark Horse 🙂

    31. House Stark and House Targaryen are my favorite because Starks will get their revenge and Targaryen because Khaleesi is my wife!!!!! Thank you Dark Horse for the Prizes merry Christmas!!!!!

    32. Nice to see people sharing my cheap humor about Jon Snow’s package. I was going to call it the Castle Black package but nah.

        Quote  Reply

    33. This is an amazing way to end a week of ridiculous giveaways.

      To Watchers on the Wall and Dark Horse Comics, you both deserve our admiration and allegiance.

      Thank you for providing such a comprehensive source for all things Game of Thrones and A Song of Ice and Fire.

    34. Thank you WotW for this great site and this great give-away. It’s actually my birthday on the 13th… so here’s hoping the random-number gods grant me a gift!

        Quote  Reply

    35. The Martells, because Dorne is a bit less barbaric than Westeros. But if I had to choose a family from Westeros the Tyrells would be a good pick.

        Quote  Reply

    36. My house of choice is Mormont for sure, but a close second is House Too-Fat-to-Sit-a-Horse. Stark loyalists with awesome ladies!

        Quote  Reply

    37. I would be happy with anything from that list!

      As for allegiance… Davos is my favorite, so I have to stick by him. Plus, Stannis is the one true king of Westeros. He was next in line after Robert, and Robert had no legitimate heirs. Now, as for if Robert should have went after the throne… that is much murkier. However, considering the only truly known Targaryen is very, very far away from coming to Westeros (it seems), Stannis is rightfully the king at the moment.

    38. Go house Tyrell! I love you margaery! Go Starks: I hope that somehow you end up on the throne. Go Dany! You’re full of spitfire and spunk. I’m saddened that you made him go but …oh well. Thank you Dark horse for everything you’ve given us!

    39. OMG is what I heard when I told my sweetheart about this contest. We are both huge fan of the series. Winning would be the best Christmas since I was little.

    40. The Stark kids are all going in fantastically different directions. Can’t wait to see any of them reunite in the future!

      Also, all of these prizes are awesome!

    41. As soon as they have Martell related merch I am getting all of it. All about free love and crap, they’re the best. Although it’s good to see love for my boy Jon Snow. Seriously, all of this stuff is awesome!

    42. Thank you for these giveaways and the chance to win such awesome prizes! Spent all week checking emails frantically to see if I won! 🙂

    43. I have to admit, House Tyrell is my favorite (they’re just so damn smart) but I have a soft spot for Starks, Martells, and Greyjoys too.

        Quote  Reply

    44. I like quite a few houses and their characters. Obviously Starks range pretty high as do the Manderlys (mmhhh tasty pie) but I guess I’ll go with the onion lord of house Seaworth. Too bad you are not offering a magnet with his sigil, nor of Ser Duncan the tall ( tree with falling star) nor of the Knight of the Laughing tree…

        Quote  Reply

    45. What I love about the families in GoT is how real they are, its incredible.
      The house I would swear fealty is to Baratheon, Stannis to be exact.
      The king who cared, he won my heart since ACoK. He might not be popular but hes the rightful king and would make an amazing one.

      Thanks Dark horse!

    46. I’m crying that this is only open to the US. I’m in Canada. So, north of the Wall, but still part of Westeros, right?

      In any case, awesome contest, you guys. Those are a lot of prizes! Hope the winners enjoy them.

    47. What a great show! Read the books long ago but I still get surprised! I am particularly proud that I have got my wife to watch the show with me!
