Season 6 of Game Of Thrones is still more than a month away. So if seeing a bunch of dead character’s faces isn’t enough to tide you over and since the new book from George R.R. Martin won’t be coming anytime soon, you might as well pass the time playing cards.
But you don’t need to resort to the standard Bicycle deck. An Etsy seller named JokerandtheThief created a set of playing cards using GoT characters. The cards are based off of the second book in the series, Clash Of Kings, and the four kings are designed to look like Robb Stark (spades), Joffrey Baratheon (diamonds), Stannis Baratheon (hearts), and Renly Baratheon (clubs). Game Of Thrones viewers will recognize that (spoiler alert!) all those kings are now dead. But there are plenty of living characters represented in the card set as well, including Tyrion Lannister (jack of diamonds), Daenerys Targaryen (queen of clubs) and Petyr Baelish (joker, of course).
The cards are printed on heavy 300gsm cardstock paper and are standard 2.5" x 3.5" size. According to the materials listed in the description, the cards also include Dragonglass and Valyrian steel, which might make shuffling a little dangerous.
