Four men pledge their allegiance to a house and the audience are divided into teams to support their lieges as bannermen. The first man to pledge their allegiance was announced. Representing the Lanaster's George Gayler, who in fact was not a man, but a stunning brunette that would give any Lancaster a run for their money. The next two, Leiges team Stark and Team Targaryen (Dan Bufon and David Massingham), enter and their flowing locks lead us to believe they may just be true GOT nerds. Then I realise at least one of them is a Super GOT nerd. I remember Dan Bufon actually took time off work as a radio DJ to watch Game of Thrones. Let's hope I'm on team Stark. Our final comedian/Liege representing team Greyjoy (thank goodness Game of Thrones doesn't have a sorting hat, please don't put me into Greyjoy) is Roland Lewis.
So the comedians are announced - time to find out the house we pledge allegiance to. Cross fingers for Targaryen or possibly Stark. Please not Greyjoy. Damn it team Greyjoy! That's okay we will forge forward with our nerdy knowledge. Winter is coming and after hearing Gabby, a girl from team Lancaster recite all of the dire wolves and Lancaster children, I realise I know nothing Jon Snow, but we will never surrender.
The great thing is you don't need to know anything, in fact, you don't even need to have read the books or watched the show. It is set up in such a way that anyone can participate. While there are trivia questions for both comedians and audience, there are also games and impromptu banter that makes it a fun-filled hour.
Isabella Valette does a brilliant job of hosting the show - watch out for her wonderful "Here comes a Raven" impressions. The pool of comedians changes each night but I'm sure with such a wonderful host every night it will be totally different but exceptionally fun.
The game is almost over and luckily for us, our Liege Roland of Greyjoy managed to cheat a little and we finished the night on three points ... last, but it doesn't matter because we've had fun.
