How to Use the Book and Deck
As per the tradition of tarot, a tarot deck may be called upon whenever answers, insights, or guidance are needed. Lay out the cards for a reading, then refer to the card meanings in the book which suggest how the cards’ imagery and scenes might play out in your own life. (You may prefer to use just the cards rather than this book, tapping into your personal knowledge of Game of Thrones).
Five tarot spreads are included in the pages of the book, but you could also use your own. Each card, from the Major Arcana to the Cups, Coins, Spears, and Swords of the Minor Arcana, offers a rich and meaningful experience–a treasure trove of much-loved characters, scenes, and stories depicted in a style both surprising and true to the world of Westeros.
Key meanings: Endings, rebirth, loss, transformation, release, truth
Arya Stark is Death personified. A trained assassin, she holds her sword, Needle, a symbol of the lives she has taken to avenge those of her family. Behind her is the Hall of Faces in the House of Black and White: a library of masks, or identities, worn to kill. Through her training with Jaqen H’ghar she considers killing off her old identity, to become 'no one.' She is released when she affirms her name as Arya Stark. She is reborn with a stronger sense of self.
Key meanings: Love, attraction, decisions, maturity, growth
Atop the Wall in a tender embrace, Jon Snow and Ygritte are about to kiss. These two outsiders, a Wildling and a man labeled as 'illegitimate,' have just survived a perilous climb. The skyscape, with its gray and orange, holds the light of love and clouds of doubt: love, like the Wall itself, means risk. This is love, and Ygritte has claimed Jon—'I’m your woman now, Jon Snow.' Jon looks directly at Ygritte, yet her eyes are cast downward.
Key meanings: Balance, adjustment, resources, guidance, choices, moderation
A gentle, cerebral soul, Samwell Tarly must quickly adjust to life at Castle Black. He cannot fight, but he finds a protector in Jon Snow, who helps him survive the brutality of training. His mind is his greatest resource. After destroying a White Walker with dragonglass, Samwell turns to books for an explanation. Reading at Castle Black’s library, he discovers that obsidian blades may have protected the Children of the Forest.

I was mistaken - it's actually really respectful of both Tarot and Game of Thrones. The quality is great, the cards have an unusual finish for Tarot cards, but they shuffle nicely and feel good. The book is good too - a little hardback, nicely produced. As well as brief explanations of what's depicted and the card meanings, there are also some nice themed spreads.
Maybe if you're not already a fan of the show the cards won't make so much sense, but I think the choices for the cards are great. I'm sure I'd have done a couple differently, but that doesn't mean that the choices made don't also fit.
This has exceeded all my expectations, and is much more multilayered than you might imagine.
This deck is rather fabulous. Probably not something I would use with clients, but fantastic for personal work. (I'd also happily stock it for my shop too)
They've done a great job in choosing characters for the cards. (The only one I don't like is the choice for the devil card, I feel they could have gone with a different character) the characters chosen really gives a fun spin on the cards and breathes new life into a reading practice.
The box is beautiful, definitely one I plan on keeping around.
The card stock is woven, so has more grip than your average Tarot deck. Not a type of card stock I've ever come across, but really fits in well with the theme.
The imagery is beautiful, and is a high quality print. The artist has done a really wonderful job.
The guide book is small, but full of fun. Some of the Tarot spreads they give directly tie in with the TV GOT universe, based on the GOT in universe religions. It let's me connect my inner geek to my Tarot reading, and that's always fun! ;)
In conclusion, this deck is really good fun, and great for fans of the show and Tarot readers alike!
Le coffret est splendide, une belle boite avec impressions en relief et bordure dorée bronze, il est bien dommage que le code barre soit visible dessous. À l’intérieur deux compartiments en cartons pour le livre et les cartes avec une petite languette bien pratique pour les soulever. Tout l’intérieur est couleur bronze, l’ensemble est rangé les cartes et le livret ne se trimballent pas et ne risquent donc pas de s’abimer.
Le guidebook est en anglais uniquement, facilement abordable toutefois, sinon des applications gratuites existent pour le traduire, c’est un livre de poche de 106 pages, celles ci semblent en papier vieilli, elles sont douces et glissantes, agréables au toucher la couverture est rigide, il est adorable et propose 6 tirages, une page pour l’exemple et l’explication sur l’autre. Pour chaque arcane majeur, une double page avec l’illustration, des mots clés, un petit laïus sur le personnage choisi, une référence à la numérologie et l’astrologie, la signification de la carte droite ou renversée. Pour les mineurs, l’illustration est plus petite, quelques mots clés et la valeur de chaque lame dans les deux sens.
Les cartes sont de la taille d’un Tarot classique comme ceux de Lo Scarabeo, le dos permet la lecture inversée, elles sont de bonne qualité bien que souples et comme très légèrement gaufrées, on distingue comme un petit quadrillage sur les cartes qui, allié aux dessins et couleurs, donne un effet ancien au jeu. Elles glissent assez bien, se mélangent bien, la petite bordure blanche apporte un peu de lumière aux illustrations. C’est donc un jeu qui mérite sa place dans ma collection, un jeu que j’ai hâte de travailler en alliant GOT et Tarot.
