This game gets bashed for two reasons...poor incorporation of the show's characters. Lack of clear rules. I own this game and have never seen the show, period. So I cannot comment on what may be a legitimate theming issue. As for the rules, that's why I bought it. Once you understand the ruleset this game opens into a world of magic. Its lastability is 10/10 because you can play it hundreds of different ways. It's the perfect game on which to learned controlled, methodical play... with a risk/reward factor of taking uncaculated on-the-fly shots for hurry-ups, combos, and other timed objectives. I personally love the upper playfield. I like the pro as well, but there are some interesting game changes effected by having that upper PF present and it's worth utilizing in the game. Personally, I think the game suffers from its OK, but monotonous background music and infrequent/repetitive call outs. A code update really should resolve this. The lighting on the other hand is PHENOMENAL. Great game and a keeper for sure.

Artwork is substandard, sound is awesome, leds are too bright during modes... Blinding.

Premium is the best of the bunch. Period. Love the upper playfield and the additional strategy that comes with it. Had this for about a year and really enjoyed it. As a fan of the source content it is even better! Super fast game, sometimes too fast but in a home environment that frustration just makes you want to play more.

One of the deepest rules sets out there. Tons of lastability, amazing light show, love choosing which house you want to start as.

Upper playfield takes up real estate but doesn't offer anything much. The pro is better. :)

I really like GoT for a newer stern. This is the first game to have a strong departure from the "classic" pinball rules, where strategy can make a huge difference in score (versus just completing modes to get to mini/wizard modes for big points). Which house to you pick to start makes a big difference on how you play the game, which houses do you try to bring to multiball make a big difference, the order of houses completed makes a big difference, etc. Also, the game shoots really, really well, and the physical ball lock is a nice added touch. I would definitely enjoy owning this game at some point (and the Pro over the Premium, even through I love the lighting effects on the Premium.)

Way underrated game. The upper Playfield is a must for this game. The pro is excellent too but the upper Playfield is just so much fun!

Well this was a surprise package for me. Theme was good but mainly thought I'd get it as my wife is a huge fan. Surprise was I actually love this game. Very immersive with great links to the show. Very good ruleset and one of the best mini wizard and wizard modes I have played. Keeps me coming back for one more and then another game.

Played it...didn't care for it. First, the upper playfield is a fine idea. I love these because it invokes memories of The Twilight Zone, Black Knight and Haunted House. But what's the purpose? It's just an upper playfield. With a neat looking dragon to make it "cool". That's it. The rest of the game is highly uninspired. Nothing but a ramp that hits the upper Field and a bunch of columns that do random crap like spit the ball back at you a half second later. Additionally, this sucker is a drain monster due to a ball that floats and floats and floats...then bounces HIGH off a bumper and continues to float. This kills any momentum the game was supposedly meant to have. I might play it again to see if it's just me but this didn't leave a great first impression. Surprising since Stern rarely puts out a bad table.

Played about 10 times on location. Really wanted to like it. Cramped feeling and the upper playfield just gets in the way. I'm giving it good scores for deep rules but I don't think it will get enough of my money for me to confirm. I'm happy never playing it again.

Played it a few times and I couldn't get into it. I really tried to give it a chance compared to the Pro, but the upper play field makes little sense to me. Check out the pro!

Great game. Lots of practice to learn the various missions. Beautiful game field with awesome sound .
No issues out of the box and very easy setup . I love the upper playfield and prefer the premium.

I own a pro and I have played the LE. To me the LE lacks flow and the upper playfield takes away from the game because it hides where your shots go. I don't feel like it adds much to the game as much as it hinders it. Still a very good game but I think they sacrificed gameplay for gimmicks.

I like to Play tournaments, and this is the machine ... .
If the dots and the artwork were better, this would be a top 5 game.

GOT is one of the best modern Stern games. It's strength is in the code. Lots of interesting strategy decisions. The upper playfield is weak, but could be improved if Castle MB was given more points. I prefer the Pro at this point.

It's a solid game but the shots aren't satisfying for me. I'm not sure if that's poor design or a lack of skill on my part but I can never seem to get into it. I love the Game of Thrones theme song and the rules are easy to understand. Just missing that "it" factor for me.

Another Ritchie masterpiece. The depth of strategy in the game is amazing and it's a well suited pin for home players. Start modes right away, go for locks, build your playfield multiplier, how do you start? Owning the game gives you plenty of time and options to figure it out. Great shots, fun backhands, and high risk/high reward type shots gives this game a unique feel. Playfield artwork is sub-par, but the LE backglass and side art is an amazing piece of hand painted fantasticness.

I kept trying to play this game and just couldn't get into it. IMHO it's a drain machine but a neat idea.

A true modern classic! The playfield of this machine is littered a huge variety of shots to go for, wildly different strategies and many paths to a high-score. It may be overwhelming the first few runs, but once you get a fairly good grasp of the ruleset you will love this machine. Also captures the theme of the series really well, and the sound effects are quite epic!
