* ''Literature/TheWorldOfIceAndFire: The Untold History of Westeros and the Game of Thrones'': A series encyclopedia, co-written by Martin, Garcia, and Antonsson. The book is framed as a history written by one Maester Yandel and presented to King Robert as a gift.
*** A World of Ice and Fire (a.k.a. A Game of Thrones Guide): A smartphone app offering details on a multitude of events, characters, and locations written by Elio M. Garcia Jr. and Linda Antonsson, the admins of popular fansite Westeros.org. Basically, a way to present a few extra notes here and there that didn't fit into the print World book.
* ''The Lands of Ice and Fire'': A book of poster-sized maps, including regions of the world that have yet to be explored in the novels.

* The series was adapted for television as ''Series/GameOfThrones'' which despite borrowing the title of the first book is an adaptation of the entire series, and between Seasons 1-4 adapted the first three books with reasonable faithfulness. The unusual circumstances of its conception and genesis (an adaptation of an as-yet incomplete series of novels), means that the later seasons have [[CompressedAdaptation compressed books 4-5]], and have now [[OvertookTheManga moved past the chronology of the published books]]. The show is set to finish before the author completes his books. Martin has been supportive of the project, writing the screenplays for one episode per season (for Seasons 1-4)[[note]]He used to work in television; ironically, he returned to novels because he was tired of budget constraints limiting his imagination. This came back to bite him in the posterior when he was assigned to adapt the episode that contains one of the biggest and most complicated battles of the civil war; he noted with irony that the author had made the scene too damn big and expensive.[[/note]]. He has also given Weiss and Benioff the outlines for the remaining books in the series, which will come in handy now that they have outpaced him.
* A video game, ''VideoGame/AGameOfThronesGenesis'', has dramatized some of the stuff that's AllThereInTheManual, covering the last thousand-or-so years of Westerosi history. It was joined by a negatively received video game, also called ''VideoGame/GameOfThrones''. A browser-based online {{MMORPG}} called ''Game Of Thrones: Seven Kingdoms'' is also in the works.
* [[VideoGame/TelltalesGameOfThrones Another video game]], this one made by Creator/TelltaleGames and taking place in the TV series' continuity.
* A {{table top|Games}} RolePlayingGame was licensed through Guardians of Order. Another one by Creator/GreenRonin and [[http://greenronin.com/sifrp/ currently has three books released, a rulebook, a sourcebook, and a licensed adventure]].

Set in a medieval fantasy world, the series primary follows various political and supernatural threats to the Seven Kingdoms, a vast nation still recovering from a civil war that ousted the previous ruling dynasty. The plot begins by focusing on the Stark family, a noble house that rules the frigid and sparsely populated North. Forced to journey south and enter the unfamiliar territory of King's Landing, the family must suddenly contend with deadly court politics, intrigue, plots, feuds and mysteries from a host of rival factions. As the nobles busy themselves playing the game of thrones, a supernatural threat looms beyond the Wall to the far north that threatens to destroy the Seven Kingdoms and drive the continent into a permanent winter. Meanwhile, the last scions of the ousted dynasty, now in exile, have their sights set on reconquering the Seven Kingdoms and reclaiming their family's throne with fire and blood.
