Who will sit the Iron Throne? Will Jon Snow learn his true heritage? Will Daenerys get revenge on the Night King for taking one of her children? While we may not have access to our own personal Three-Eyed Raven to look into the future – and Game of Thrones‘ eighth and final season – for the answers to these burning questions, we do have something that might be just as good… the gorgeous new Game of Thrones tarot cards from Chronicle Books.
There is no shortage of Westeros-inspired merchandise out there – from apparel and action figures to tie-in books and jewelry – but this tarot set is truly something special. Each deck is housed in a beautiful box, alongside a hardcover guidebook explaining the symbolism of each card and various ways to use them in a tarot reading. As a tarot beginner, I’m so excited to have this book to tell me what it all means (something that would come in handy while watching the latest Game of Thrones plot twists as well).
The cards themselves are also very impressive. They have a high quality feel and – most importantly – insanely cool illustrations. The Major Arcana and the Cups, Coins, Spears, and Swords of the Minor Arcana feature fan favorite characters and iconic scenes and stories from the HBO series.
Instead of just telling you about the cards, let me show you a few of my favorites:
I mean… It doesn’t get any better than this. I’m here for Jonerys, but Jon and Ygritte (and their real life love story) is also perfection.
Who better to represent Death than Arya (or should I say No One)?
Some may say that Joffrey should be on this card, but I think Ramsay has more than earned this distinction.
There are several gorgeous cards featuring our Khaleesi in the deck – here’s one of them. Definition of a warrior queen.
King in the North and King of Cups. More Jon Snow, please.
This one’s maybe a little too on the nose for comfort… but you’ve gotta love the Come at me, Crow! pose. Hello, Night King.
There are a LOT more tarot cards where these came from – featuring the likes of Tyrion, Sansa, Bran, Brienne, Dany’s dragons, and even Ned Stark (RIP). I can’t wait to spend more time exploring all of the beautiful details of the illustrations and attempting to divine the future of Westeros (or, you know, my love life. One or the other.)
The Game of Thrones Tarot set releases on March 20. You can get your set here.
