      "I quickly ran into a problem while watching Game of thrones, and even more so when I started reading the books. There is tooo many characters to learn about, too many houses to remember and just so much important information to keep track of. There were scenes that I knew were big, but their grandiosity fell flat because I didn't recognize the key characters at first (the Red Wedding for example, who is this Bolton guy?). After searching a bit, I found this Guide and it helped incredibly with my understanding on connected details. It was also very easy to look up things I wasn't sure about. Most importantly it had pictures of faces and who's related to who. This was key, since most of the drama is family & Royal houses drama. Now I can quickly use this resource so every big scene that makes me think 'What just happened to Whom?', I can quickly look it up and be in the know!"

      "It's a good app if you want in depth information of the Game of Thrones. There are so many maps and you can follow different characters. You can spend hours on this app. Down load app is free, but there are so many in app purchase if you want to see maps and such. It's too expensive to me as each in app purchase is $3-$4. If you are a huge fan and don't mind spending some money, you will like this."

      "While this is a cool guide to Westeros/ the Game of Thrones world, I found so much of the content to be locked. Think it's kind of ridiculous what the creators of this are expecting people to pay for all of the content. Think there are better and cheaper ways to learn everything you need to know about Game of Thrones."
