Winners Are Coming!! The Kidd Has The GAME OF THRONES Video Game Contest Winners, Too!!

The Kidd here...

If you're a GAME OF THRONES fan, you know from last night's season finale that winter is finally here. Well, that then makes it a perfect time for me to settle on five winners of the GAME OF THRONES video game, complete with hardcover book featuring concept art and visuals from the game. 

Stemming from the roleplay approach of the game, I wanted to know what your first order of business would be if you were appointed Hand of the King. For one reason or another, these are the winners with some rather intriguing agendas:

  • Cameron Harrison

As Hand of the King I would immediately demand I be given access to the mystical HBO I wouldn't have to plug my ears and go "la la la" whenever my friends who practice illicit downloading activities talk about the current season while I patiently wait for the DVDs to come out. I mean, being The Hand must come with some privileges, right?

  • Brian Staudinger

Here me people of Westeros, as newly appointed Hand of the King my first decree will be to enact a pension plan for all the painted whores in the realm. Yes, it is true that time can be a cruel mistress and that the Dothraki Drip can wither a women, but I say Nay!, let us not forget the countless hours these women devoted to their craft and the happiness they bring throughout the Seven Kingdoms. As the Hand of the King it would be my utmost honor to take care of the ones that "take care" of all of us. 

  • Christopher Troilo

Hire Hodor to pound Joffrey around by his ankle like a ragdoll, Hulk v. Loki style, in the middle of the throne room during court.

  • Gary Warren

My first order of business as the Hand of the King is to force the bard George R.R. Martin to release the next damn book!

  • Chris Wroge
My first order as the Hand of the King would be the following:
Sansa will hereby be relegated to wearing only a thong in the presence of the Hand.

That's it. That's the list.

Oh, sure... Westeros wouldn't exactly prosper by some of these items being taken care of first, and, in a few cases, they'd wind up with the Hand's head up on a spike... but at least it'd make for some entertainment in the short term, and that's good enough for me and good enough to win GAME OF THRONES the video game.

Congrats to all our winners, and thanks to everyone who participated. Thanks once again to Atlus to hooking us up with the games.

    HBO wants to kill us all

    by Darth Macchio

    Seriously...13 episodes a season? And almost a year between seasons? Do you think they might offer free wood chips jammed under our fingernails with an ice pick if we asked nicely? Wasn't so bad when there were multiple shows that would cover the between spots...but I'm not even all that psyched about True Blood at the moment...

  • June 4, 2012, 4:51 p.m. CST

    Uh, Yeah Sophie Turner is still under age.

    by skycrapper

    Might want to fix that last one.

    No offense to the winners of the contest. Congratulations. But some of those were really asinine. Seriously? Sansa wearing a thong? That's ridiculous. Step your game up, guys. That's embarrassing.

  • June 4, 2012, 5:06 p.m. CST

    congratulations but.......

    by migmog

    The game is TERRIBLE!!!!!

  • June 4, 2012, 5:08 p.m. CST

    Surprised at The Kidd........

    by migmog

    Normally I guess we would get the 'Kidd vs schtick' but I suppose the lure of free stuff obscures objectivity !!

  • June 4, 2012, 5:20 p.m. CST

    Thought it was 100 characters or less!!

    by LowDevil

    Or maybe it was words? fuck I wanted this one bad.

    Grammatically incorrect squabbling

    by Steve Lamarre

    over an inferior game. But if the winners are happy, congrats to them.

  • June 4, 2012, 5:36 p.m. CST

    Whoa, I won!

    by Cameron Harrison

    My entry, just for shiggles...

    by Carl Vaughan

    "The crow lit upon my window in the Tower of the Hand, dark against the coming night. He cawed. Dark wings bring dark words. There was no coronation for the Hand of the King, simply the first meeting of the council. It was there that I gave my first order. I took the message from the crow and read over it. Sir Tyr of House Collins, General of the Guard of Oldcastle, crossed that great blue sea, The Bite, at midday and would deliver my personal and trusted guardsmen, The Gauntlet. The first order of the Hand, one thousand strong."

    yours is the only one that sounds like it could be direct from the books. And not that "Sansa in a thong" crap.

  • June 4, 2012, 6:02 p.m. CST

    Your "thong" candidate...

    by MattDomville 14, isn't she? Jeez... Well, it's in keeping with the terrifying attitutes of Westeros, at least.

  • June 4, 2012, 6:09 p.m. CST
