If I’m not mistaken, the “game of thrones” referred to in the HBO original series Game of Thrones isn’t a literal game — at least not one that you can survive losing. But now, an Etsy shop by the name of Jokerandthethief is selling Game of Thrones Playing Cards, designed around characters from the show, so you can give any game played with traditional playing cards a decidedly cruel and violent twist.
Game of Thrones Playing Cards has four kings (Joffrey, Stannis, Renley and Robb Stark) instead of just one, appropriate given the constantly-disputed throne at the centerpiece of the TV show and the George R.R. Martin novel series. Various other characters fit into the other playing card slots, and a map of Westeros adorns the back of each card.
You can get a deck of hand-illustrated Game of Thrones Playing Cards at the Jokerandthethief Etsy shop right here, where a complete rundown of the Game of Thrones-characters-to-playing-cards dynamic can also be read.
