'Game of Thrones' Secrets Revealed

Stocks in this article: TWXTWCVVI

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Walking in the door to Time Warner Cable (TWC) on Wednesday night I was transported from the concrete jungle of Manhattan to another realm -- Westeros -- the fantasy kingdom where "Game of Thrones" takes place.

For the first few seconds after entering I was completely star struck. Two of the shows lead characters, Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner, who play sisters Arya and Sansa Stark in the show, were standing not far from the entrance.

Waiters walked around with giant turkey legs as passed appetizers. I had a chance to try out my bow and arrow skills in the Blackwater Bay interactive game to see if I would be a good banner (wo)man. On the right were the regal costumes and props used by House Lannister. On the left were the more subdued and heavier clothing worn by House Stark, the two major warring families in the series. Weapons such as Jon Snow's sword "Longclaw" and dagger, the Hound's helmet and Ned Stark's sword "Ice" are all being showcased. But none of it compared to what was in the back -- a raised platform with a chance to take my picture sitting on the Iron Throne.

I was there to preview the traveling "Game of Thrones: The Exhibition" that HBO, a subsidiary of Time Warner (TWX), created to promote the show's highly-anticipated Season 3, the first episode of which airs on Sunday, March 31.

The "Game of Thrones" event in New York City -- the only stop for the U.S. -- is being hosted by Time Warner Cable (a separate entity now that it split from former parent Time Warner). The event runs from March 28 through April 3.


Game of Thrones is based on the epic series of books, A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin. The show is about a medieval kingdom pulled apart by war and the fight over who will win the Iron Throne, the seat where all seven regions are ruled from. At the same time, growing magical forces "beyond the Wall" as well as dragons reborn across the sea foreshadows an even bigger war against humanity that will have to be fought.
