Question spawned from this chat discussion.
When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground. - Cersei Lannister
Why does Cersei call it Game of Thrones (and why did G.R.R. Martin name it that way)?
In my understanding of the books and the TV show, multiple characters, families and houses play multiple games (mustering, battling, intrigues etc.) to be seated on the Iron Throne.
This question about the titles of the book also noted that
A Game of Thrones refers to the eponymous "game" of politics and treason characters play to claim the iron throne and the power that comes with it.
But then, the throne should be singular because it refers to the game to claim the Iron Throne, and not multiple Thrones.
Therefore, wouldn't it make more sense to call it Games of Throne?
