Eagle-eyed Game of Thrones fans are calling out the show’s creators for a growing list of gaffes, after the show accidentally left a coffee cup on a table in a shot in the latest season.
Critics who have been keeping tabs of the series makers’ slip-ups have dubbed the show Game of Goofs for their mistakes – from extras strutting around in jeans, poorly concealed cords, and magically disappearing props.
The mistakes start in the show’s very first episode Winter is Coming in Season 1 where an extra is seen walking around set in a pair of jeans and what appears to be a Patagonia Jacket – items far before their time in the world of Thrones.
In Season 2’s Episode The Price of Winterfell props disappear and reappear in different places.
During the first 30 seconds of an intense conversation between Tyrion and his sister Cersei his napkin moves without warning. Though the audio in the clip is seamless, the shots show Tyrion’s napkin tucked into his armor, then in his lap, then on the table, and magically back on his armor again.

Jon Snow’s rubber sword: In Season 6 the Battle of the Bastards, the prop department slipped up and gave the mighty Jon Snow a floppy rubber sword
The pre-modern Game of Thrones world gets a technological touch in Season 5’s episode Mother’s Mercy where the fallen Stannis Baratheon is seen slouched defeated on the ground with a computer cord peeking out from under his leg, as per Gizmodo.
In Season 6 the Battle of the Bastards, the prop department slipped up and gave the mighty Jon Snow what appears to be a rubber sword rather than his sturdy Valyrian steel one used in battle.
As he mounts his horse into battle against Ramsay Bolton his sword is seen swinging around wildly.
Another noticeable switch up takes place in Season 5’s episode Unbowed, Unbent Unbroken where Nymeria Sand runs to capture the young girl Myrcella with a whip secured in her right hand. But when she gets to Myrcella a twisted dagger appears in her right hand – without no indication that she dropped her precious whip.

Jon Snow’s disappearing scars: In season 7 Jon Snow suffered scars to his forehead and chest. But in a subsequent scene his forehead scar is gone and his chest scar has moved to the right
Did Jorah give Dany greyscale? In Dance of Dragons from Season 5, Jorah grabs Daenerys Targaryen by offering his right hand but is later seen in battle holding her with his left – the hand that’s infected with the contagious disease greyscale
Another surprise change was Jon Snow’s scar after he raised from the dead in Season 7’s episode Beyond the Wall.
Following his brutal fight against the Army of the Dead he suffered distinctive scars to his face and a crescent shaped one to his chest.
But when we see Jon Snow on camera after he’s revived, his crescent-shaped scar had shifted across his chest and his scar on his forehead had disappeared.
While the editors and designers had their share of flack – some actors were to blame too.
In the Season 2 episode The Ghost of Harrenhal Renly Bartheon slips up his tongue and says ‘Moat Katelyn’ instead of Moat Cailin while speaking to Catelyn Stark.
Another shocking mishap could have proved devastating for the plot.
In Dance of Dragons from Season 5, Jorah grabs Daenerys Targaryen by offering his right hand.
But in the next shot when he’s fighting off the lethal Sons of the Harpy, he’s holding her with his left hand and reaches around her body to kill something with his right arm.

However, such a move could be deadly longterm for Dany as his left-hand was infected with greyscale – a contagious condition.
The show’s latest season has already caused an uproar for two slip-ups.
In one scene a coffee cup was accidentally left in a shot in front of Daenerys Targaryen, sparking endless Twitter jokes that Starbucks had extended to Winterfell.
In Episode Four fans raised havoc over the landscape of King’s Landing, which is known to be a city surrounded by water. But in the episode a desert-like setting is portrayed, with no water in sight.
