After unveiling a special edition of “Game of Thrones” Monopoly earlier this year, HBO is now coming out with a new board game tied to the hit show — Risk — and Speakeasy offers an exclusive first look today.

In the Risk: Game of Thrones Edition Game, created by USAopoly under license from Hasbro and in partnership with HBO, players will vie for control of the Seven Kingdoms and the Iron Throne.

The game has more than 650 pieces, including two custom game boards, seven sculpted armies, seven player boards and 28 character cards. With three ways to play, this edition of Risk is for 2-7 players, ages 18 and older, with a suggested retail price of $74.95. It will go on sale in August.

Players can choose one of seven Noble House armies, with each army composed of 45 pieces for a total of 315 game pieces. There are two different designs representing 1-unit army and 3-unit army, and one Seat of Power design.

Player boards will be customized for each House and allow you to track your progress in terms of territories, ports, castles and victory points.

Character cards will let you use the battle skills of four of the most powerful members of each house. For example, a Daenerys Targaryen card can be played when declaring an invasion, and lets you replace all 6-sided dice with 8-sided dice. The Cersei Lannister card can be played if you conquer three or more territories in the turn, and allows you to draw an extra territory card.

Other special features of the game include:

-Territory cards that let you stake your claim on the lands you rule.

-Maester cards for using tactical skills and the wisdom of a Maester in battle.

-Objective cards to complete conquests in pursuit of the Iron Throne.

-Gold dragon coins to collect for wealth and purchasing power, like a Lannister who always pays his debts.

-Special unit tokens for military deployment to outnumber and outmaneuver opponents in battle.

The game box will feature silver-foil stamps of the House sigils, and army storage containers where you can organize your armies. The components include: 2 game boards, 315 army pieces, 7 seats of power, 7 player boards, 187 cards, 63 special unit tokens, 75 gold dragon coins, 9 dice and 1 rule book.
