blockbuster video board game

Remember Blockbuster Video? It was a physical place where you could go rent physical copies of movies! Sounds crazy, I know.

While almost all of the Blockbusters are gone (there’s one left in the entire world), nostalgia for the video store is at an all-time-high. There’s even a Blockbuster Video board game now! So why not gather around your friends who were once ’90s kids, and remember the good old days. More on the Blockbuster Video game below.

It’s called Game of Thrones: Oathbreaker, and you can get all the details about it below.

As night falls in the game, the werewolves murder the residents of an old village called Gallowston, and when the villagers wake up, they must identify the werewolves among them before they’ve all been wiped out.
