Game of Thrones Season 2 and A Song of Ice and Fire Book 2 pit Joffrey, Stannis, and Renly Baratheon against one another for the Iron Throne, while Robb Stark mucks things up even further accepting a crown as King in the North (at least that part doesn't last for too long). Matt Kirkland of Etsy shop Joker and the Thief has hand-illustrated a deck of playing cards centered around these 4 "kings" and in the style of the Bicycles we all know and love almost as much as George RR Martin's world of Westeros.

Kirkland prints his Game of Thrones playing cards on casino-quality 300gsm cardstock, with suits and characters represented as follows:

  • 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
  • Jokers - Petyr Baelish (Littlefinger) and Varys
