Some of the stars of HBO’s Game of Thrones had their knowledge put to the test recently in a little game of “Swords or Metal Band,” in which they’re given a name and they have to choose whether it’s one of the many named swords from author George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” universe or a metal band. As you might have guessed, it is not as easy for them as they hoped it would be.
This is all part of a Game of ThronesOmaze campaign, through which some lucky fan will win themselves a trip to the premiere of season six later next month. You can watch the videos and read more below.
Here’s some info on the Omaze campaign:
Support the International Rescue Committee and
Join the Game of Thrones Cast at the Premiere
Go to the Game of Thrones season 6 premiere
Rep your house at the after-party
Get flown out to LA and put up in a 4-star hotel
What you’ll do
After the exciting ending of the last season of Game of Thrones, you probably want to start season 6 as soon as possible, right? We hear you, and weâ€™ve got your chance to attend the exclusive premiere in LA with the cast. Youâ€™ll rub elbows with some Lannisters, take photos, and of course, youâ€™ll be among the first to see where and how (and why and when and who?) the story picks up. Before we get ahead of ourselves, you should know that youâ€™ll also hit up the after-party. So, expect more elbow-rubbing and photo-ops there. Donâ€™t forget: flights and hotel included!
Who you’ll help
The International Rescue Committee responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises by restoring safety, health, education, economic wellbeing, and power to people whose lives have been devastated by conflict and disaster. The IRC is the only international relief agency responding on all fronts to the refugee crisis in Europe and the Middle East: inside war-torn Syria, in neighboring host countries, in Greece and Serbia where refugees enter Europe, and in the United States where they resettle refugees from around the world.
If interested in seeing the rewards available aside from the top prize and maybe donating to the cause, you can do so over at Omaze.
