The world is still looking for the last of HBO’s hidden Iron Thrones
In the weeks ramping up to Game of Thrones’ eighth and final season premiere, HBO has secretly hidden six replicas of the Iron Throne around the world for fans to find. It’s another spin on “a game of thrones” — a scavenger hunt and worldwide race to find hidden objects based on only the vaguest hints.
So far, fans have located five of the six replicas. The only clues HBO gave were one-hour live streams of each of the thrones at different times in the day, and sometimes a tongue-in-cheek tweet like quoting the Canadian national anthem as a caption for one throne. HBO’s tweet, “We stand on guard for thee,” soon had people responding with an emoji of the Canadian flag.
