KSR’s Game of Thrones Death Pool



For six more weeks, Game of Thrones is in our lives. Prior to the season eight premiere, the KSR crew collaborated to create a friendly competition.

Before an NFL football season, fans draft players to create a fantasy football team. In similar fashion, we picked which characters will die from our favorite fantasy show. There are four options for each character’s fate at the end of season eight:

1. Dead
2. Alive
3. Undead
4. Winner

Each person will get one point for a correct answer. To clarify, if a character dies and comes back to life at any time they will qualify as “undead.” Even though Jon Snow has technically already done that, it does not count. As for Bran, well, that’s a whole different ball game. If a person correctly predicts who will sit atop the Iron Throne, they get three bonus points.

People aren’t too confident Dany is going to live to see the end of the show. On the other hand, nobody believes Samwell will die. Jon Snow was the most popular pick to win the Iron Throne, while Jaime and Sansa received some surprise love.

While we wait for the results, enjoy the dulcet tones of Kentucky Thrones Radio. A new podcast will be on iTunes each Monday afternoon. Valar Morghulis.

      For a man named after a maniacal computer you seem a bit critical. And some of us play space invaders.

      This is actually worse than most of Roush’s post on this website. Millions of people watch Thrones fool. Plus it’s on at 9pm on Sundays…who goes outside and does something productive at 9 o clock on a Sunday…?
