Prepare Yourself, Game of Thrones Pinball Is Coming

Game of Thrones fans get ready because Stern Pinball, in partnership with HBO Global Licensing, is releasing an awesome new pinball title.

The Game of Thrones pinball machines, inspired by the hit HBO drama series, will put players in the heat of battle where noble families fight for control of the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms. These pinball machines will be available in Pro, Premium, and Limited Edition models and are packed with toys and features that provide an irresistible challenge to play against kings, knights, knaves, and dragons.

All three models will feature an animated, interactive dragon that roars, flies, and breathes fire through the magic of all-LED lit playfields and players can choose to be a Knight of the Stark, Lannister, Greyjoy, Baratheon, Martell, or Tyrell family Houses. Guided through the game by Game of Thrones actor Rory McCann, who played Sandor Clegane (The Hound), players can slam the ball into the Battering Ram, attempting to break down the castle doors and grab features such as Super Jackpots, Wild Fire, and Playfield Score Multipliers.

In addition, the animated mechanical Sword of Multiball will hold back reinforcement until it's time to attack while a bank of three Drop-Targets lights the Lord of Light Lanes to protect against side drains and awards other progressive features. And let's not forget the Kickback that fires the ball in anger when struck.

Players can also win valuable random awards and features by playing the Pop Bumpers and spinning three virtual spinning reels on the display. When three identical symbols line up, the player is awarded the prize shown on the reels. Players ca earn Gold and spend it on needed weapons and features while an Action Button, featured on the front molding, offers the largest array of interactive play features ever seen in a pinball!

The Game of Thrones Pro model, available for $5,995, includes all the above features and 7 multicolor Shield inserts that represent the great Houses of Westeros and special shots on the playfield. Lightning-fast ramps and orbits send the ball on fascinating and versatile courses throughout the game.

The Premium and Limited Edition machines, available for $7,595 and $8,795 respectively, will both feature a massive and challenging Castle upper playfield with a second set of full size flippers, shots and an animated Dragon. Both models feature dazzling, full-playfield, color-changing LED's throughout the game. An Elevator serving two "floors" brings the ball up to the Castle where the players battle against Houses and Dragons. The second Elevator floor delivers the ball to the Iron Throne, where victories great and small can be celebrated. Amazing light shows and effects are a visual celebration of players' victories.

Lastly, the Limited Edition model delivers all the play features of the Premium model, while also featuring a Certificate of Authenticity, a numbered plaque, a designer-autographed playfield, a beautiful, hand-drawn cabinet and backglass artwork by Bob Stevlik. Exclusive, glossy, black-powder-coated, laser-cut side armor features dragon elements of the Targaryen Sigil and is inscribed with the Targaryen House motto, "Fire & Blood", all highlighted with a rich, red mirrored backing.

Game of Thrones Pinball is available through authorized Stern Pinball distributors and dealers around the world.
