The boxes contained story card non-fungible tokens (NFTs), resource card collectibles, and a single “Game of Thrones” (GoT) Hero Avatar NFT.

Marsilio continued:

Our teams have diligently worked together to create an interactive collecting experience for Game of Thrones fans to continue their journey and live within the beloved series. We are thrilled to introduce more fanatics into the digital collectibles and Web3 industry.

On social media, people complained about the new “Game of Thrones” (GoT) non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and some said they were “poorly drawn.” Others commented on the particularly odd way the artist drew the GoT characters’ hands, as the fingers are very long and look like salad tongs. Some people referred to the GoT characters’ hands as “salad fingers” on Twitter.
