All your favourite Game Of Thrones characters on playing cards. All of them trying to fight for the Iron Throne.
These Game Of Thrones Playing Cards were inspired by the “Song of Ice and Fire ” book series as well as the “Game of Thrones” TV show. In the second book, Clash of Kings, four characters claim to be the rightful King – Joffrey, Stannis, and Renly all claim the Iron Throne, and Robb Stark is crowned as King in the North. This deck of cards is designed around these four kings – one king for each suit.
I illustrated the cards by hand and tried to include subtle references to the books as well as the show. I created this deck in the style of traditional Bicycle playing cards, so they are easily recognizable and easy to use. There are so many great characters in the story that it was hard to choose who would make it in the deck of cards but here is the list of characters for this version of playing cards:
King of Spades – Robb Stark, King in the North
Queen of Spades – Catelyn Stark, Robb’s mother
Jack of Spades – Jon Snow, Robb’s half-brother, sworn brother of the Night’s Watch
King of Diamonds – Joffrey Baratheon, King on the Iron Throne
Queen of Diamonds – Cersei Lannister, Joffrey’s mother and Queen Regent
Jack of Diamonds – Tyrion Lannister, Joffrey’s “uncle” and Hand of the King
King of Hearts – Stannis Baratheon, Eldest brother of King Robert
Queen of Hearts – Melisandre – Red Priestess and advisor to Stannis
Jack of Hearts – Davos Seaworth (the Onion Knight), Advisor to Stannis
King of Clubs – Renly Baratheon, Youngest brother of King Robert
Queen of Clubs – Daenerys Targaryen (Kaleesi, Mother of Dragons)
Jack of Clubs – Jorah Mormont, Exiled Knight and advisor to Queen Daenerys
