Sandor Clegane is alive. He re-appeared towards the end of series 6. Also, if anybody complains about Jon being on the list, he's alive, but that doesn't change the fact that he died.

Same! I can recall every single one of those scenes! (Most I've watched plenty of times over and can tell every single gory detail ie: how far Oberyns eyes pop out of his head before imploding...) however the names.... wow... I'm absolutely rubbish with names. 17/27 due to my lame memory of fictional and generally hard to spell names!

My partner is an addict of this show; I never watch it, so Jetpunk thinks, due to my zero score, that I haven't even taken this quiz. I asked her if there are scenes where they solve matters with yoga and meditation warm-up sessions followed by talking things out reasonably at diplomatic inter-clan committee meetings. She shot me a look that translates roughly as "Er, no".

although i did not know her name (had to look it up and then checked if it worked as an alternate answer), but Joyeuse should be used as one, since Catelyn Stark slit her throat before she herself died.

The Hound (Sandor Clegane) did not die, as was seen in the current season.

Since you take alternate spellings for other names (Ygritte, for example), could you accept Catlyn (since they pronounce it that way) or Caitlyn for Catelyn?

Sandor Clegane is alive, also, the Catelyn Stark clue would also work for Lady Joyeuse Frey, Walder Frey's wife. And on a side note, I think Hoster Tully also dies peacefully

Hoster does indeed die peacefully, though it's due to illness rather than old age.

Argh! 26/27 because I couldn't remember that Pycell was "Pycelle." (I could swear I didn't spell some of the others correctly.) That was fun!

Sep 6, 2017
Okay, you need to be way more forgiving on the spelling of "Lysa Arryn" and "Benjen Stark". I tried "Liza" and "Lisa", but wouldn't in a thousand years have guessed that it was spelled "Lysa". I tried "Benjin" and "Uncle Benjei". I knew all of the answers, but got penalized for not knowing how to spell them.
+1
level 54
May 22, 2019
The spelling forgiveness on this quiz is unusually erratic. "Benjin" won't work, but "Jora" is close enough to "Jorah"? "Danaerys" is good enough, but "Pycell" really needs a final "E"? Come on now.

Great quiz but Maester Aemon is a maester of the Citadel so his family name is relinquished just like Pycelle, Luwin, Cressen etc. Also it's Petyr Baelish, not Peter.

Won't accept 'Pycelle' or 'Maester Pycelle' Also wont accept any spelling for Cat other than 'Catelyn' (tried several) Got all of them apart from these two... Wouldn't mind if it was the same for all of them but it's just these two where it is picky

Since this is based on the show and not the books, could you accept a variety of spellings? If it were based on the books, I could understand strict spelling requirements, but on the show, you never see the names written. Specifically "Marjorie", but also Dany's brother, Catelynn, which I spelled about six ways before getting that version, Katlin, Katlyn, Catlin, Catlyn, etc. Thanks for considering.

Attribution of correct answers for first names vs last names seems a bit random. Rayder didn't work, even if he's the only character with that last name in the series (to my knowledge), but Frey did, even if there are a number of other characters with the same last name. Still had a lot of fun taking the quiz. :)
