I cannot get over how large the upper playfield is on the LE and how much it takes away from the game. I played 5 games, liked the game, but I can't stand the HUGE upper playfield. Artwork and lighting id great. GOT seems to me like the lastability will go away over time and this game will fade into the background.

I'm a GoT fan and a pinball fan so this is a good combo. I love the challenge of getting to the iron throne, it's just the right amount of hard. The rules are deep and enjoyable. I like the mini playfield and enjoy the shots. The dragon shot is deadly and satisfying.

Fun game over all and multi flippers and levels make a game more interesting.

This game just did not do it for me. Ramp, ramp, ramp, ramp....and so on. It just seemed like a lot of ramp play. This game has a great theme and could have been amazing but it just isn't. The lighting is good, playfield is nice, the cabinet is nice, the display sucks in my opinion. Animations are hard to understand what they are and repeat very often as does the sound features. Too repetitive for me. Some people love it, I had mine for 30 days and I was done with it.

I own a GoT Premium and it's a beautiful game, but gets the least play in my household. I've never seen the show and I think that's probably why I'm not drawn to it as much as my other games. I know that I need to spend some more time learning the rules. GoT is a fast game and quickly destroys me, so my lack of skill is probably one of the reasons I haven't rated it very well. I hope to play it a lot more and will possibly come back and revise my rating score.

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.

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.
