Well this is cool. To celebrate the third season of Game of Thrones, which has already been renewed for a fourth, the HBO Shop is launching a sweepstakes to earn some very nifty props from the show.

Starting April 10, fans can visit to enter for a chance to win the Westeros map and sigil-markers Robb Stark uses as he tracks foes and strategizes in his war for the Iron Throne. Made of resin, the six markers are crafted to represent houses Stark, Lannister, Frey, Karstark, Greyjoy and Tyrell.

A second place winner will receive a commemorative Game of Thrones gift set featuring: Game of Thrones: The Complete First Season and Game of Thrones: The Complete Second Season on Blu-ray; Inside HBO's Game of Thrones, the official behind-the-scenes book authored by show writer Bryan Cogman features full-color photographs, interviews, a foreword by George R. R. Martin and much more; Game of Thrones Original Soundtrack from composer Ramin Djawadi; Game of Thrones 7-Inch Iron Throne Replica Statue.

So now it's your move to plot victory and try to capture the throne. Will you enter?
