TROJAN WAR PLAYING CARDS

TROJAN WAR PLAYING CARDS

These cards, designed by Jenks of Greek Myth Comix, are the follow-up to the incredibly popular ‘Deaths in the Iliad’ Infographic by the same author.

OR

as a downloadable print-it-yourself deck and tuck box!

The four suits correspond to four groups of characters in the Trojan War, particularly Homer’s poem The Iliad: Argives (Greeks), Trojans, Gods, and Women. The face cards are illustrated with a colour representation of two facets of these main characters, while the number cards picture the character at a critical, recognisable moment in the text or the Trojan War story, in the same vivid line-drawing style as the acclaimed Greek Myth Comix.

These cards, designed with real play in mind, are ideal for playing Poker, Blackjack, and countless other regular card games. In the classroom, they are also perfect as flash cards for revision of these characters – or as a fine leaving present for your favourite student Classicists. Or, you can just play cards while simultaneously acting out your AU Song of Achilles fantasies!

A perfect gift for any young scholar, classics fan or Iliad nerd!
