You win or you die…
…when you play the Game of Thrones. Thankfully, the stakes are a bit more forgiving in the Hunt for the Throne, the new scavenger hunt inspired by the hit TV show and pop culture phenomenon. Hunters follow a trail of Game of Thrones trivia questions to find art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art that reflects the characters, locations, and themes of the show. You’ll encounter decapitations, tortures, earthly delights, sinister agents, and ancient weapons, as well as works of art that might call to mind Lannisters, Starks, and the dreaded White Walkers. Play well and you could claim dominion over all the land.
If you get stuck, you can consult your smartphone—but keep in mind that the teams that get the answers faster will answer more questions and score more points.
The Hunt for the Throne is designed for fans of the show. And like the show, this hunt is not for the faint of heart. It deals with mature themes and subject matter.

All tickets include admission to the museum. Unfortunately, we cannot offer a discount to Met members because the museum explicitly tells us that participation in group events not sponsored by the museum, such as our hunts, are not a benefit of membership. The Met charges us for your participation, so museum admission must be included in every ticket we sell. Just think of it as a donation to a cause you like to support!
