We all know how hard it is to get gifts for our older kids, or even a spouse, but if you have a Game of Thrones fan in your life, we have a present that will wow them.
It’s the Game of Thrones (GOT) puzzle of Westeros from 4D Cityscape.
I was sent one to review and promptly sent it off with my son in college. He has a slew of friends who love the HBO hit.
They have been working on it in between studying for final exams and it’s helping with their stress relief (or so I’m told).
I bet it also will help pacify the GOT fans who are waiting for the next season.
The puzzle hit store shelves in November and started selling out at all vendors.
The three-layer puzzle replicates the topographical landscape of Westeros and its Seven Kingdoms, with 1,200 jigsaw pieces to re-create the regions and cities of Westeros, and 3D replicas of the castles including King’s Landing, Winterfell, Eyrie, the Wall and many more.
It also comes with an information booklet that teaches you everything you need to know about Westeros, including over 45 flags to mark famous landmarks, 10 sigils to mark the Houses, and 5 battle markers to identify the locations of five major battles.
Additional orders have been placed to meet the demand and containers are being shipped in from Hong Kong.
- ThinkGeek sold out, awaiting an additional order 3x their original order for the holidays.
- HBO Store sold out, awaiting an additional order 3x their original order for the holidays.
- Baker & Taylor sold out, awaiting an additional order almost 4x their original order for the holidays.
- Barnes & Noble is moving this item into their “power” isle where they’ve decided it will stay well into 2014. Their initial holiday shipment is also selling out, and they are preparing to put in a new order to meet holiday demand.
Fully assembled, the puzzle measures 30 x 18 x 2 inches (I haven’t seen it completed yet since I’m relying on my son’s pals to get it finished and exams are taking priority).
4D Cityscape is also taking on more major licenses of hugely popular properties. I’m told a massive one is in the works, hopefully for next year. Anyone care to guess what that one will be?
