When you play the Game of Thrones, you win or you die. Fortunately, there are easier ways to climb Westeros’ social ladder. Dire Wolf Digital and HBO have announced a new tabletop game, Game of Thrones: Oathbreaker, that will release later this spring.

The social deduction game is for five to eight players, with one of them claim the Iron Throne and the rest taking on the role of Lord and Ladies of the Great Houses scheming for power, the King’s favor, or even to overthrow them and take the Throne. Games run thirty to forty-give minutes and feature loyalists squaring off against traitorous conspirators in a game where secret agendas intertwine, and only the wise can tell allies from enemies.

“We’re longtime fans of everything Game of Thrones” says Scott Martins, President of Dire Wolf Digital, “and we jumped at the chance to work with HBO® to translate the tension and intrigue of one of the best shows in the world to a game that fans of every level of gaming experience can enjoy. Betrayal’s never been so much fun.”

The game is also inexpensive compared to some of the big box games, coming in at $35. The box contains:

* 2 Double-sided game boards
* 6 Double-sided character boards
* 6 House Sigils
* Hand of the King emblem
* 60 Reward cubes
* 125 Cards
* 33 Oversized mission cards
* Order, Chaos, and Round trackers
* Rulebook
