GIVEAWAY: Win GAME OF THRONES Season 6 Courtesy of HBO Home Entertainment

This contest has ended, congratulations to the winner!

Whether it’s story, scope, viewers or Emmy wins, Game of Thrones goes from strength to strength each year. Season 6 marked probably the biggest step up so far, its surpassing of the source material available from George R. R. Martin’s books. It was as if someone lit a (dragon)fire under the show.

Now you can revisit the greatest moments from the season, from Jon Snow’s return, to Cersei’s fall and rise, to the Battle of the Bastards, thanks to it’s release on home video by HBO. We’ll have a full review on Cinapse next week but praise be to the many-faced God, because they’ve graciously provided us with one DVD copy of the release to give away to a lucky Cinapse reader.


The most-watched series in HBO history and a worldwide TV phenomenon, Game of Thrones returns with another power season. This year, after the shocking developments at the end of Season 5 — including Jon Snow’s bloody fate at the hands of Castle Black mutineers, Daenerys’ near-demise at the fighting pits of Meereen, and Cersei’s public humiliation in the streets of King’s Landing — survivors from all parts of Westeros and Essos regroup to press forward, inexorably, towards their uncertain individual fates. Familiar faces will forge new alliances to bolster their strategic chances at survival, while new characters will emerge to challenge the balance of power in the east, west, north and south.

Five discs, host to all 10 episodes but hold the door, there’s way more stuffed into this release than that. Check the end of this piece a rundown on the cornucopia of extra features. But let’s be real now. One of the best reasons to get hold of a copy is this girl right here.

How to win?
