Game of Thrones, the hit HBO show that premiered in 2011, is among the most popular television shows of modern time. In fact, Game of Thrones is the most illegally downloaded TV show worldwide! With a host of unique characters, beautiful set designs, and costumes that would cause jealousy among nobility, it’s easy to see why all shows aim to be like Game of Thrones.

A Game of Thrones is the first novel in A Song of Ice and Fire, a series of five novels written by George R. R. Martin. Martin also contributes to the Game of Thrones TV show at least once each season. The series tells the story of Westeros, a fictional historical realm, spanning across several continents and many families. Westeros is intriguing because it hearkens to the Medieval period of knights while incorporating fantasy elements like dragons. Game of Thrones is less about these elements, though, and more about the connection of human beings and the struggle between truth and power.

Fans have been surprisingly widespread across ages, genders, and countries. Even the more mainstream audience not typically drawn to traditional fantasy have found Game of Thrones an interesting watch. Lately, many have posted Game of Thrones reaction videos and pictures from their Game of Thrones parties. Themed Medieval parties are popular among fans.
