I don't know if we'll cover this in the future but we received the following press release announcing a Game of Thrones social game for Facebook:
DISRUPTOR BEAM PARTNERS WITH HBO® & GEORGE R.R. MARTIN ON UPCOMING GAME OF THRONES SOCIAL GAME


Game of Thrones Ascent to Bring the Story of the Hugely Popular HBO Series to Fans on Facebook for the First Time!

May 21, 2012 (Boston, MA) – Disruptor Beam, a game company that brings together fan communities and online games, has today announced a license from HBO Global Licensing to produce a new social game based on the Emmy® and Golden Globe®-winning series Game of Thrones. Game of Thrones Ascent, a story-driven game that will bring the fantasy world to life for millions of people, is currently in development by Disruptor Beam for future release on Facebook. Fans can follow the progress of the game and receive updates related to its development, including learning how to participate in the upcoming beta program, by visiting Disruptor Beam’s website at http://www.disruptorbeam.com.

Game of Thrones, based on George R.R. Martin’s fantasy series A Song Of Ice and Fire, mixes political and sexual intrigue as seven noble families fight for control of the mythical land of Westeros.
In Game of Thrones Ascent players will lead the life of a noble during the time of upheaval as portrayed in the books and the series thus experiencing a new type of game that unites both story and strategy. Players will claim their birthright by choosing which of the great houses they’ll swear allegiance to, securing their holdings, developing their lands and personal reputation, and assigning sworn swords to quests—while forging alliances with new friends and much more!

Glad to hear you like the PC game. I've been debating whether to get it. I was just thinking before I logged on here I might take the plunge. I probably will.

Too late. :Already got it.

Not far into it, but enjoying it so far. Also, couldn't resist picking up the first three Thief games on Steam in a bundled sale totaling roughly $13.50.
