The Trojan War Paper Doll Playset – PDF

To add to your enjoyment of the playset, 53 cut-out characters are also included: the Iliad’s Gods, Greeks, Trojans, and the Women that support them, as well as some more generic warriors and women to add to your armies.

Trojan War Playing Cards – PDF
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.
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!
