HBO’s worldwide “Game of Thrones” scavenger hunt ended Thursday when a Queens resident found the last of six iron thrones in Fort Totten Park.
HBO crowned Queens resident Melanie Joaquín the “Queen of Queens” on Thursday, when she figured out the location of the last iron throne in a worldwide scavenger hunt.
Joaquín told HBO she instantly knew Fort Totten Park was the answer when the network posted a cryptic clue hinting at the throne’s location, according to Gothamist.
“I left my apartment building, got on a bus, ran over here, saw two other people who looked like they were also looking for the same thing, but the fence was locked,” she said. “Then I snuck in here through a hole, and the other ladies were looking at me like ‘WTF,’ but I don’t care, I wanted this throne, so I did it.”
The HBO scavenger hunt included six iron thrones worldwide, part of a publicity stunt to promote the eighth and final season of “Game of Thrones.”
The network chose Fort Totten Park “because of its dark and ominous setting, reminiscent of the basement of Kings Landing, where the Mad King stored his destructive wildfire, and where Queen Cersei waged to destroy the Great Sept of Baelor,” according to Gothamist.
