We’ve seen some pretty great Game of Thrones merchandising over the years — like Ommegang’s Game of Thrones-inspired brews and the GoT coloring book, for example — but we’re surprised it has taken this long to find this: a Game of Thrones Playing Cards deck.
The cards are based on the second book, which is when four different characters claim to be the rightful King of the Seven Kingdoms. Joffrey, Stannis, and Renly all stake claim to the Iron Throne, while Robb Stark is named the King of the North. Obviously, each suit of cards is based on each of the four kings. For the Spades, The King is Robb, the Queen is Catelyn, and the Jack is Jon Snow. For the Diamonds, The King is Joffrey, the Queen is Cersei, and the Jack is Tyrion. The King of Hearts is Stannis, Queen of Hearts is Melisandre, and the Jack is Davos. Finally, the King of Clubs is Renly, the Queen is Daenerys, the Jack is Jorah, and the Jokers are Littlefinger and Varys. They’re a must-have for any fan of the series.
