The long gestating HBO series based on George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Fire & Ice series is finally getting some traction; a pilot based on A Game of Thrones, the first volume, has been ordered according to Hollywood Reporter.  The series has been in the works since early last year (see “A Song of Fire and Ice on HBO”). 


If there’s ever a series order, there’s a lot of product to be sold, including an RPG from Green Ronin (see “Green Ronin’s ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ RPG”), a card game and board game from Fantasy Flight Games (see “New Ice and Fire Board Game from FFG”), and mini busts from Valyrian Resin.
