Card Game Of Thrones
Private solo project in March 2014
Concept and design
Shortly before the start of season 4 of the tv show “Game of Thrones”, I invited friends to watch all of season 3 in a weekend long marathon. For this event I created a “Game of Thrones”-themed top trumps game. Using pictures from the show I designed the 32 cards (and a cardback and a card with rules) with Gimp 2.
To be able to produce a balanced game I thought hard about attributes and their values for characters of the show. Making cards too powerful or weak would break the game. To determine the values, I analysed the distribution of strong, weak and mediocre cards with a spread sheet.
