Chapter by innocent chapter, Game of Owns begins an adventure through Ice and Fire
The time for cheers or tears is here, your four Heroes of GOO have traveled the long field of battle that was A Game of Thrones, first book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series. Talks of the book as a whole have finally reached the show, as we end with Daenerys shifting amidst smoldering heaps of rubble, and riddles of the future.
Another Friday minus one of your four heroes, but returned by a long gone renegade host fresh from travels across the planet. Today marks the penultimate chapter of the months long Game of Owns analysis across this first great tome of Ice and Fire, riddled with riddles of the future and the clapping of hands.
A single ungainly tale of personal injury opens this Wednesday episode starring Selina and Eric, both of whom have survived the mid-week battlecall to bring you this snowy Jon Snow chapter as book one moves closer to its end.
On this Monday episode, we learn just how good a listener Tywin Lannister is; the mission in store for Tyrion is not unlike Micah's mission to collect a Game-of-Thrones-themed copy of Sports Illustrated, and Varys works nights in Braavos.
GOO coasts into Friday this week as Dany deals with the loss of her once human now dragon child…or is it? Our chapter-by-chapter look at Book One in this great series draws ever more near to finality, and this particular chapter builds much of a foundation for the pages to come.
It's time to hold poor Sansa's hand and lead her to King's Landing's trophy collection, with Joffrey and the Hound as her dates. Good thing we're here to keep the situation from getting out of hand. This is all Robert's fault, anyway.
Friday hath come, so climb onto the shoulders of your favorite GOO host and explore the massively massive depths that make up the crypts of Winterfell.
The time has come: we have reached that point of A Game of Thrones when poor Neddard was the sacrifice the island demanded. Join Eric, Selina, and Zack this Wednesday in saying goodbye to the newly GOO anointed Dad of The Year, Eddard Stark.
Together at last, Game of Owns is back four strong as Dany and Drogo make a quickly unprecented pit stop near some brown grass in the desert, and the questionable Witch Doctor Lady does even more questionably questionable things. Questions?
Secret oaths of the Solemnly Sworn Soldier Squad have been taken as Robb Stark rides into battle against frenemies and the most beautiful secondhand lion, all on this fateful flavor sealed Monday episode.
Starting out this weekend on Game of Owns, the possibility and factual hearsay of a brand new Game of Thrones inspired series has inspired Selina, Eric, Zack, Tyrion, and Shagga to head into battle alongside one another.
This year's Valentine miracle rests heavily on the shoulders of Eric, Selina, and Zack as they battle shoulder against shoulder alongside Dany and her magical field of witch doctor slave saving servants.
A single foretold mead-filled weekend has filled this week of GOO with Friday numbering not one, but two. Selina is away hunting Alaskans as Micah, Zack, and Eric keep warm by the fire reserved for Old Bear in his tower, recounting their story of Jon Snow and his burned, bloody bastard sword.
Join the three strong Game of Owns this humpday in an adventure on, off, or around the ever famed and fabled Twins. Walder Frey assumes command of the fate of the realm as he dishes out heaping portions of wisecracks toward the stacks and stacks of offspring littered around his tiny seat and many narrow murder holes.
Over the past several weeks, Neddard Stark has found his way deep inside the underground of King's Landing, only to be left alone with himself and a collection of haunting memories. One lone visitor descends and dares to speak his name, also get him drunk for free.
Friday begins three strong as Eric, Selina, and Zack push forward through the snow and debris, heading south for King's Landing. The new king is changing things up, redecorating the throne room and laying off sixty percent of the staff's existing number, only to be replaced with his best of friends. Nepotism, you youu.
The night draws near this one lone Wednesday as our four heroes brave yet another dark and stormy evening, free of all forms of static and precipitation. The chapter discussed in this episode will be remembered as the first Eric would ever meet book Tywin, and for spelling the end to our crossload-like familiarities.
Monday funday begins with talks of weather dominating the minds of our brave hosts, and a mother reuniting with her long lost son (or something like that). Catelyn has joined Robb inside of his now ancient stronghold to discuss the articles of war, in addition to cleaning the dirt from behind his ears (and fixing that annoying cowlick).
Your favorite quartet of noble miscreants end the week with sizzling bits of flavor sprinkled inside of crates and casks of the finest Dornish vintage, and also find time for continual discussioning along the first collection of chapters in the Song of Ice and Fire series. Thank George It's Friday.
GOO turns 50 this Thursday as our four hosts dive once again into A Game of Thrones, continuing their chapter-by-chapter conversationing of the literary backbone that is Game of Thrones. Robb begins to leave Bran in charge of Winterfell, deeming his basketcased compadre Hodor fit for storming about the keep and leading the peoples in this time of great peril.
In today's GOO, we invent Westeros Rock and invite you all to submit your best band names! We then move beyond the Wall with Jon Snow as the first battle in the Ice versus Fire war is fought, and begin filling up our Christmas tree with the decorations you have submitted to us.
It doesn't take a trip to the Wall for our fearless hosts to feel the winds of Winter on their backs, and so they begin to decorate their Game of Owns Christmas tree. Was King Robert the Chris Kringle of King's Landing? Now that he's gone, Queen Cersei summons our heroine Sansa Stark from her tower chamber, Jeyne Poole is given a choice between cake or death (or very similar), and the terrifying trinity of Cersei, Petyr and Varys show us just how far they will go achieve their ends.
As the week draws to a close, the swordsmen of Game of Owns fight on through the weary battle toward what is hoped to be an everlasting weekend, riddled with bodies of the men of the North. Arya is fleeing an interrupted dancing lesson as she comes face to face with real mortal peril, only to be saved by hiding once where she was most frightened. It's Friday on GOO, cheers to a great weekend.
The end of Ned Stark's gameless streak has finally reached the podcast as Eric, Zack, and Micah meet once again to share predictions on his future, the future of the realm, and the future of our Planet Earth.
In true GOO fashion, your four hosts celebrate alongside The NIght's Watch in commemoration of a new graduating class, and the first appearance of the North's Sorting Hat.
The good King Robert has been ridden to his bed once again, but not for recreational purposes. No, the brutal assault from Eric's prized pageant boar has left our leader in shambles, and Ned Stark must now carry the future of Westeros.
Join Daenerys Targaryen and her big brother as they get into all kinds of hijinx this Monday, including but not limited to: drinking spoiled milk, consuming a stallion's warm, still beating heart — and enjoying a shower of molten golden coins.
Within four stacks of mattress materials, Game of Owns is back this Friday with another chapter forward in A Game of Thrones, visiting in with Neddard Stark as he resists the womanly advances of the ever beautiful Queen.
Hump day this week was crafted in the fires of a dragon jaw to bring you Selina, Eric, Zack, and Micah's joyous readings of the next chapter in the Game of Owns read through of A Game of Thrones. Arya, Sansa, and Septa share a conversation that reaches volcanic temperatures, forcing the both of them to be sent to the Principle's Office.
The temptest subsides this Monday as the heroes four reunite once again in full force to press onward in book one, A Game of Thrones. Ned Stark sits atop the throne in the midst of his questionable physical condition to declare injustice for the good of the suburban people.
Eric and Zack make their way across the High Road with Tyrion and Bronn, sharing short stories along the way.
In the wake of Hodor Week, Eric and Zack meet to piece apart Jon Snow's rendezvous with Maester Aemon Targaryen and the woundrously amazing Chett. It's back to the books today on Game of Owns.
Selina, Eric, and Zack sort out each other's personality traits in relation to characters in the series, Jorah says Khaleesi too much, and a handful of stealthy Instragram photos make their way into this very casual Friday.
Wishes of a Happy Halloween to you and yours are tossed around in this week's hump day extravaganza, where the yawn-inducing fight for Tyrion's freedom raises a few hostful eyebrows.
As the promise of impending doom draws near, your hosts begin the week slicing and dicing the ever famous bedchamber scene in which Ned sips poppy and the King sips just too much wine.
An earth-shattering discovery sets this Friday in motion as the GOO four coordinate evenings for the sake of Tyrion Lannister and his new best friend.
The perfect Halloween costume is revealed for one of our heroes, and another chapter is disucssed in which Theon Greyjoy saves the day with a crack-shotted arrow in the general direction of a Stark brother.
Healed vocal chords and companionship course through the start of the week as the full GOO cast enter Vaes Dothrak, hand in hand.
Eric, Micah, and Zack are joined by special guest and GOO shipper Jessica Chapman to talk Chapter 35 and beyond. Some of your Owns are mentioned, bastards are debated, and the first hump day episode officially happens.
Selina is absent this week as the boys gaze deep into the sheer magnificence of the Eyrie and its many local creatures. Tyrion and Bronn finally become friends, Catelyn makes a late night journey, and a brand new shown is born.
Your favorite four heroes are back to face the insurmountable mission that is podcasting directly underneath the shadow of a dragon. Well, not really, but they do tackle the fandom-wide confusion surrounding Lord Varys and his possible magical abilities, and which home is the shiniest in all of the realm. In this episode, join the debate that is drawing a clear line down the foursome; Would you have sentence the Targaryean girl to death, or would you have let her run free in the Ghostgrass?
The fourth is strong with GOO this week as Micah returns from his staycation with George RR Martin, building a new East Wing onto his sprawling estate in Long Island. We discover near the top of this week's episode that Joffrey Baratheon's controversial lineage may not be so controversial after all, and that silk robes are proper podcasting attire. Detective Nedward Stark moves forward with his investigation as your band of heroes travel further into the first book of your favorite white walking HBO series.
Your favorite team of armor-clad individuals are back for another rant laden episode of Game of Owns. Actually, the team is minus one member, but substituted with a top draft pick from Team Hypable, becoming the first ever special guest on this program. Tyrion and Jon exchange a chilly good, Rickon is sinister, and Detective Ned is fathered into the world. The very end of this series may have been uncovered in only these 5 chapters as the team continues analysis of Book 1 in the Song of Ice and Fire Series.
A new stack of chapters has been laid upon our heroes this week. Which is lucky, because inside of this very episode, their favorite chapter thus far has been discovered. Meet some of the story's most dastardly villains, learn about new knitting habits, and wade through the tangled opinions and theories regarding a heavily political block of reading. Oh, and this episode is virtually unedited. Enjoy!
It is now time to visit yet another block of chapters in the first volume of Uncle Ray's fabled tome collection commonly referred to as the Song of Ice and Fire series. Zack is back and comes with tales from deep into the North of the Wall where Selina has been traveling for the past several days. Eric begins this week's episode with news from a convention he and one of our heroes sailed endless hours to attend during the hiatus, and Micah reached via satellite. Dany is tying the knot with a scary man and his lengthy, well-oiled collection of hair, Catelyn fully realizes her need for gauntlets, Ned and Robert share a broment, and Jon snow learns a thing or two about life.
This week the GOO team is one short, yet tackling chapters 6-10 with the force of a rampaging Hodor. Learn more about upcoming Thrones Comic Con plans and how to carefully handle a book in the most proper fashion. In addition to all of the incredible things written above, it must be mentioned that the original Imp Slap does in fact happen inside of the text discussed in this very episode.
This marks the first week your one and only GOO cast begin to look over the ASOIAF series chapter-by-chapter, beginning with the prologue and continuing through to the fifth chapter. Meet some of your favorite characters for the first time, and listen to some of your own Westerosian draft choices being criticially analyzed at the top and just toward closing. Also, Eric unfortunately had to leave the recording of this episode sometime after the halfway point, only to leave it filled with sleep deprived podcasters hell bent on creating nothing but pure magic.
