This evening, we’ve got a little roundup of little news bites and updates for you, including the continuing Throne-hunt, the covers for tomorrow’s TV Guide Magazine issue, a pretty cool CG trailer for a new Game of Thrones browser game, and more.

The final throne hasn’t been unveiled yet, but we’ll inform you as soon as it is… and as soon as we know if this is leading somewhere more than a throne-sized easter egg hunt!
Earlier today, four variant covers for tomorrow’s issue of TV Guide Magazine were announced, featuring Jon Snow & Daenerys Targaryen; Arya, Sansa & Bran Stark; Cersei & Jaime Lannister; and, worryingly all by his lonesome, Tyrion Lannister:

Finally, there is Game of Thrones Winter is Coming, the officially licensed PC browser-based strategy videogame that just released. I can’t vouch for the quality of the game itself, but I can say it was advertised with a pretty impressive CG trailer:
And that’s all for this roundup! This was a busy day, so be sure to look at the many bombshells we reported on earlier today, such as the prequel casting news and the announcement of a 2-hour ‘Making of’ documentary for Season 8. See you tomorrow!
