Quick, who said it: “When you play the Game of Thrones, you win or you die.”
George R.R. Martin knew the answer when he stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers last night. The author was promoting his new book (no, not that one), The World of Ice & Fire: The Untold History of Westeros and the Game of Thrones. He quickly found himself in a verbal duel of honor with Amy Poehler, who challenged him to find out exactly how well he knew his characters.
Poehler and Meyers took turns quizzing Martin with lines from his very long, multi-volume work and asking which character said it. For the most part Martin nailed it, but he apparently completely forgot about the Westeros 9 meteorologist who first predicted that winter is coming.
