Really excellent game. Not a theme I care for, but GoT is a deep game with great sound effects and great art. Definitely want one some day.

I respect this game for the deep rules and strategy that it has but I just can't get into it and I don't know why. I have no interest in the theme but that usually doesn't stop me from enjoying a good pinball machine. I simply cannot get into this one and I never have much fun while playing it. May edit this down the road if something clicks but for now something just doesn't feel right about this game.

I find myself skipping this pin for others that are more fun.

I played this machine and didn't do well, but I couldn't stop playing. The code was deep which I liked. This is a game that I hope to get one day. People complain about the cabinet art work. Easy fix, put in in between two others. As for the backglass, change it out.

Fast game with a deep rule set that is well suited to home use. Strobe effect makes it hard to play at points. You can lose track of the ball when it goes off. the midnight madness is a cool feature.

Art is an abomination, dots are so-so (although the color DMD looks fantastic), the play-field is severely stripped down, and there's a lack of variety in the callouts.

It's also the most fun game I've ever played.

I had an LE, loved it. I love this more. The rules, shots, and lighting are fantastic. There's so much depth and variety in the core gameplay... it never gets stale. Ramps and orbits shoot like butter, and almost every shot can be backhanded.

Very happy to have this back in my collection, I don't see this leaving for a very long time.

Artwork is very ugly and uninspired at best, how it's possible to mess a beautiful and strong theme like GOT and create a machine who looks like a Xena warrior princess machine? I think the designers don't watched the show and it's a BIG mistake. The artwork reminds the Youtube video Game of Thrones 90s intro VHS style, and it's not good at all.
Playfield and shots are boring, classic, uninspired. No toys or magnets at all if we forget the Dragon kicker, much less fun and wow factor than the War machine kickback. It's the much simplest layout we can find on a modern machine. Annoying ball hop at the flipper bats make the game hard to play smooth and flowy. It's clunky and for a game designed by Ritchie, it's really a shame (SHAME!)
Lightshow is flashy and colors are fluorescent, hmmm.. the theme is Game of Thrones, really? Again, big mistake.
Musics are good, but sounds are really bad and very repetitive. Callouts are ok but there really are not many. The game seems unfinished and botched (bugs, no sounds for some jackpots, and a few same sounds on the 3 differents multiballs...). The game lacks great sounds when you finish a mode or start a Wizard, it's flat and not really exciting.
Rules are ok but it's not nearly as intense as TWD, IM or Met.
Clearly a big disappointment for me, i'm just glad i didn't buy this machine.

EDIT: i update my ratings since i played at least 100 games on the GOT pro i have temporarily at home. The code is good and it's very fun to go for Iron Throne. Once you had a good score on a house, you want to play an other and an other, so lastability is good. Risk and reward, and strategies can sum up GOT. Too bad the artwork doesn't suit the gameplay. The more i play this game the more i like it, but i wouldn't buy this game because of the artwork and the lack of variety in the sounds. However, i understand people who like it, because the code is really good.

Finally I have played the pro version of this game!! I like it a lot! The rules encourage you to shoot for the playfield multiplier ( battering ram), and to stack modes and multiball!!

Game of thrones pro has great rules, good sounds and music, and a great theme. But, the reason I like the premium more is because the pro has very bad artwork and no toys at all.

I'm a huge fan of the series, and the pinball version does not disappoint! I think the dragon is the coolest part, whenever you hit the ball into it's cave, the lighting effects are really incredible. Blackwater multiball is simple enough to get that you can have a lot of fun for a few bucks on location. It's also a really exciting multiball!

This game is awesome. I've got some big titles in my collection and most of them haven't been turned on since I got GOT. My only complaints are that the ball save lasts forever and you can only stack two modes. If you're thinking about this one, buy it, especially if you like the show.

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.)

I played the LE version first. It was boring as hell. I played it again. Still boring. I was told by my friends that the Pro version was "so much better", it isn't. It's worse. It's the same boring gameplay without the upper playfield. There's no thought put into this thing. There's a dragon and the "throne". M-kay. Other than that, two ramps and an extremely ugly, uninspired playfield just doesn't make me want to play this. The shots are pretty easy to make but there's nothing here that makes me say, "Wow!" It's a boring table with boring art, boring gameplay and boring and lazy theming. Are we upvoting this thing just because it's Game of Thrones?

Ok gameplay, but not a fan of the drain shots on the left side of the playfield. Ugliest pin i've seen. Sorry GOT fans :)

Im not the biggest fan of the show and its all ramps.

I love the game, the sounds, lights, and gameplay all kill it. I don't like some of the cabinet/playfield art on the Pro, or the Trans, but everything else is butter.

Some issues with the Dragon shot hopping flippers and airballs, but that could've just been my own leveling problems.

First off I haven't seen the show, but my girlfriend loves it so I know enough about the theme to understand what's going on. This is game is very very ugly, with photoshop all over and not a single hand-drawn element, which must be down to HBO because I doubt Stern would be happy with this otherwise. The layout is...okay. There's lots of flow, but not many of the shots can be backhanded as I'd have liked. Orbit stops the ball dead sometimes which is not good. There are no toys that interact with the ball, theres a kicker under the dragon and there's a battering ram that moves a couple of milimetres but for the stupidly high price that simply isn't enough. VERY stripped back compared to premium/LE efforts and it really shows. Rules are clearly deep and well thought-through, but theres simply nothing good to look at it and nothing interesting for the ball to do. Good for tournaments where you can just focus on strategies that will ellicit high scores, but not that fun on your own, which is a shame.

If you do not study the rules like you are cramming for finals then you will not put up very good scores. As someone who doesn't study the rules or even watches the show I get lost at times trying to figure out which house to attack or if I should cancel a mode or not.

The game is really fun to play and i can recommed to try it, what really pull´s it down is the art and the sound, otherwise i can recommed it to anyone who likes ritchie and want´s a game he won´t get bored off.

update: played the game a lot more since my original post, and it is one of my favorite games, even though the score is a bit lower since i tried to rate it objectively and the art is still pretty bad

This game has extremely complex rules and a very boring layout. Which makes it both confusing, and boring. I'd probably spend more time on it if the artwork was not just photo cut outs of all the actors. I feel like some of these 'movie/tv show' themed tables just look like a big 'scrapbook' some super fan put together from magazine clippings.

I do not own it but play it everytime I am at the barcade. I really enjoy the play and interactive feel.

I really like how this game plays. The choices at the beginning with different houses having different abilities affect strategy and the way the game is played. The lighting effects are awesome. Especially when wildfire is active the effects blinding you while you play. The music is good too. Has a rather simple layout not a whole lot to shoot at. This gives the game great flow especially on the pro. I like how the game trains you to use the action button. Easiest house to score on is Martell because of the extra add-a-ball feature. With good timing this can be used to extend multi balls. The Greyjoy house for the more advanced player makes the game harder but makes it possible to earn all abilities. It is easy to get the Blackwater multi ball. Which strategy this Multi ball can be used to defeat houses if you have stacked them. Lots of neat features. Strategy is definitely the name of this game.
