Game of Thrones – Detroit is Winterfell



Entertainment website has posted a map of the United States, replacing real American cities with the cities in the TV and book series Game of Thrones.

Of interest is the fact that Detroit is the location for Winterfell. According to the website, it’s “A hardened, steel-wielding city, fallen from grace. Winter is always coming.”

We think that’s a little hard. Detroit certainly has its problems, but here’s some things we don’t have to worry about: A witchy women who gives birth to smoky demons and corrupts an otherwise-good king, systematic torture, beheadings, zombies, giants on mammoths, and fucking dragons.
