THE Game of Thrones (GoT) fever which has been spreading across the globe has hit Jamaica with full force, as evidenced by the large turnout at a GOT fan party hosted by FLOW to mark the Jamaica premiere of the fourth season of the HBO hit series.

GoT fans demonstrated their passion and knowledge of the series created by David Benioff and D B Weiss, based on George R R Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire, answering trivia qiestions from emcee Paula Anne Porter, herself a GoT fan. Several persons went home with prizes including DVD GoT packages, DVD players and miniature Iron Thrones. Fans are bound to be overjoyed at hearing that HBO has just signed for a fifth and sixth season of the mediaeval drama which is an irresistable mix of treachery and betrayal, nobility, sex, blood and violence coated by Martin's mastery of the story-telling art.

Among those seen in the Courtleigh Auditorium, New Kingston where the premiere was held are: Tanya Taylor; Roshane 'Dutty Berry' Berry; Gail and Michael Abrahams; Tara Playfair Scott; Chelan Smith; Cleveland Allen; Tanikie McClarthy; Jan Pisko of CBS and husband Grant; Carlette Deleon; Toni McMillan Spencer; Saudicka Diaram; Nasha Monique Douglas; Erin Mitchell; Dianne Ashton Smith; Natali St Louis; Andrew Fazio; Janet and Kalando Wilmoth.

Following are photo scenes from the premiere held on Sunday, April 6, 2014:
