Pool of Thrones

Welcome to the Pool of Thrones. I’ll update the leader board here weekly. Use the comments section for questions, episode discussions and ruthless trash talk!

What’s at stake: $230(!!!), an official medal (that’s if it arrives from the sketchy site I ordered it from) and achieving what’s probably the greatest accomplishment you’ll ever make in your life.

Week 6 – OH MY MOTHER LOVING GOD THAT WAS TORTURE *SPOILER ALERT*

I’m going to put about as much writing effort into this final post as the writers did on the most important episode in television history. What a shit show.

BRANFLAKE THE BORING, my nemesis, took the throne after a very painful 7th grade civics class lesson. But shout out to my parents who were the only ones to pull a Bran and see that coming. Yes we could argue the Iron Throne doesn’t exist, but it doesn’t help anyone anyway because those 4 points didn’t determine the winner. It brought them into 2nd place, narrowly ahead of Syd the Kid who dropped from her season-long lead to 3rd place.

That’s right – someone usurped the throne!

There were a possible 22 points up for grabs this final week:

Jon – alive, not white walker (1 pt)
Sansa – alive, not white walker (1 pt)
Arya – alive, not white walker (1 pt)
Bran – alive, not white walker (1 pt)
Tyrion – alive, not white walker (1 pt)
Daenerys – dead, not white walker (1 pt)
Yara – alive, not white walker (1 pt)
Samwell – alive, not white walker (1 pt)
Gilly – alive, not white walker (1 pt)
Little Sam – alive, not white walker (1 pt)
Brienne – alive, not white walker (1 pt)
Davos – alive, not white walker (1 pt)
Bronn – alive, not white walker (1 pt)
Podrick – alive, not white walker (1 pt)
Tormund – alive, not white walker (1 pt)
Grey Worm – alive, not white walker (1 pt)
Gendry – alive, not white walker (1 pt)
Is Daenerys preggo? – no, cuz she dead (1 pt)
Who holds the Iron Throne at the end? – Branflake the Boring (4 pts)

 

AND THE WINNER OF THE POOL OF THRONES IS……………….

 

Nic of House Cavaliere!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

He gallantly swooped in from nowhere like Uncle Benjen, moving from a meager 7 points to a final score of 22 points! Congrats Nic! I’ll bring your prize from the Iron Bank tonight when I come over to join your wife in watching a much better written show – The Bachelorette.

  1. I’ll get the ball rolling. A character study. Here’s how everyone chose to check their boxes.

    With an X: Adam, AlexLaura, Ashley, Corinne, Julie, Meagan, Michelle, Shawn, Sydney.
    With a checkmark: Char, Christine, Drew, Heather B, Joe, Lauren, Natalie, Nic, Ryan, Sue.
    With a straight line: David, Laura, Heather M.
    With a hole-punched dot: Aunt Anne.

    I think the Xs are serial killers, the checkmarks are normal people, the straight lines are secret serial killers trying to pass as normal people, and the dot is, special.

  2. Christine of House Devine is a better second-runner-up name than Heather of House Bainbridge. Sidenote: I love Heather of House Bainbridge and I don’t know anything about this GD show. I also think I’ve just made a fast friend with Christine Devine.

    1. I agree it deserves recognition because I went back and forth on those two, but I maintain Heather of House Bainbridge as second runner up because it’s more singsongy and medieval. I’ve made an amendment.

        1. hahaha I’m happy being third runner up…it’s the best I’m going to do through this whole process!

  3. TECHNICALLY we are House Bainbridge of Cedar (My husband and I are teaming up), but whatevs matters not to us. For the record we did use checkmarks and we are NOT normal 🙂
