In an interesting marketing move, HBO Asia sent ingredients to make a lemon cake to our editor in 4 parts. Flour, Sugar, Eggs and instructions to make the lemon cake were delievered to the office with the last piece of the puzzle being an actual lemon cake (in case he was too lazy to make it himself) and the invite to the premiere of Game of Thrones by HBO at ION Sky on 18 Aug.
It was certainly a very unique way of sending an invite and the anticipation of putting the puzzle together certainly caught our attention so we were all geared up to attend the premiere.
Game of Thrones is an American medieval fantasy television series created for HBO by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. Based on author George R. R. Martin's best-selling A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels, the first of which is called A Game of Thrones.
It's been highly-anticipated since its early stages of development and Game of Thrones was well received by fans and critics since it premiered in the U.S.
ION Sky provided a brilliant setting for the media premiere in Singapore with a spectacular view of Orchard Road from the 56th floor. The host for the night was none other than Linda Black who talked about the series, what to expect and conducted an interesting puzzle game with an equally interesting prize.
Guests were then later treated to the screening of Game of Thrones after an hour of miggling during the cocktail session.
Everyone walked away with a door gift from HBO Asia that's a letter opener designed like one of the swords used in the series. To find out more about Game of Thrones do check out the House Baratheon feature below.
Game of Thrones stars Sean Bean, Mark Addy, Michelle Fairley, Nikolaj Coaster-Waldau and Lena Hedley. Premieres 28 August on HBO Asia at 10pm so make sure you catch it on Starhub Channel 601.
