SFX - - Competition -

Not only the most suc­cess­ful show in HBO his­tory ( take that, Tony So­prano), Game Of Thrones is a bona fide global phe­nom­e­non. On 16 Fe­bru­ary, the epic fan­tasy se­ries re­turns to Blu- ray and DVD for its fourth sea­son, big­ger and blood­ier than ever. While the Lan­nis­ters’ grip on the Iron Throne re­mains in­tact, new threats from the south, north and east threaten to tip the scales. Be­trayal, dis­hon­our, mur­der, war, ex­tra- mar­i­tal jig­gery… it’s all here, plus a host of new char­ac­ters join­ing the regular gang. Keep­ing up with who’s who in Ge­orge RR Martin’s sprawl­ing uni­verse can be a bit of a job, so it’s as well that the Sea­son 4 Blu- ray and DVD is loaded with never- be­fore- seen spe­cial fea­tures un­pack­ing all that mythol­ogy. Plus there’s enough be­hind- the- scenes ma­te­rial to choke a di­re­wolf.

To cel­e­brate the re­lease of Game Of Thrones: The Com­plete Fourth Sea­son, SFX and our sis­ter mag To­tal Film have teamed up with HBO to of­fer an ex­tra- spe­cial prize: the chance to forge your own sword! One lucky reader will em­bark on a four- day sword- mak­ing work­shop at the Forge of Avalon in Glas­ton­bury ( www. for­ge­o­favalon. com). You’ll start with the rudi­ments of sword- mak­ing – and be­fore long you’ll be owner of your own Knightly Sword in the style of the Late Mid­dle Ages. And what bet­ter place to pose hero­ically with your new blade than in the shadow of Glas­ton­bury Tor?

The win­ner will need to be over 18 – or if 16- plus, ac­com­pa­nied by a re­spon­si­ble co- par­tic­i­pat­ing adult ( ie a par­ent/ guardian). If you’re trav­el­ling far there’ll be B& B ac­com­mo­da­tion on of­fer, and – this is the re­ally ex­cit­ing bit – you’ll get to keep the fin­ished prod­uct. You’ll also be en­ti­tled to a cer­tifi­cate for the prize that’ll be valid through 2015 and sub­ject to the or­gan­is­ers ar­rang­ing a mu­tu­ally con­ve­nient date for par­tic­i­pa­tion. Okay, enough of the house­keep­ing; for a chance to win, an­swer the ques­tion to the right by vis­it­ing: www. games­radar. com/ Game- thrones- com­pe­ti­tion Which of th­ese is NOT the name of a

episode? A The Pointy End B The Bear And The

Maiden Fair C Black­wa­ter D The Red Wed­ding E Myhsa

This could be you! ( But you’ll have to buy the threads your­self.) You’ll get to see your very own sword be­ing made.
