#ForTheThrone: Join the Quest!


HBO has decided to end our collective boredom with a bang by unleashing a flood of Game of Thrones content all at once and we don’t hate it. As the latest leg of their #ForTheThrone campaign (and hopeful less painful than the blood donation portion of festivities), a mysterious new Quest was unveiled for fans today on the website. What does it entail? To be honest, we’re not entirely sure…

When you visit the #ForTheThrone site, you’ll see a screen like the one above and can choose “Quest” which will take you a video, along with the Oberyn Martell quote “It is a big and beautiful world. Most of us live and die in the same corner where we were born and never get to see any of it. I don’t want to be most of us.” You can watch the first video- for Throne of the Forest, at “Dawn.” The video is part of a playlist of three videos. The other two videos are shown below- “Day” and “Dusk.” All three videos show the Iron Throne in a forest at various times of the day…with not much else happening. It’s a 360-degree video, so you can move the video around to search, but so far we haven’t found much else.

The site invites fans to “Claim the throne before time runs out” with a clock counting down- there are about fifteen days left. There are six spots on the Quest right now- but for what, the remaining videos? Let’s put our heads together and figure this out! We love a good puzzle, and we’ve got nothing but time until the premiere! Will you find the Throne?
