Top Trumps

I know they still make these but they don't make the proper packs with sports cars, military aircraft etc. Bring back the good top trumps!

Pack of cards with (for example) cars on them, with a series of stats about it (Max speed, length, etc), divided equally between the players (Two or more people play)

Player one takes their first card, and reads off a stat. Each other player takes their first card, and checks the smae stat. The winneer of that round is the player who has the highest, and receives the other player's cards. Play then continues with the winner of the preious hand.

The eventual winner is whoever takes all the cards.

Try http://yahoo.cartrumps.com for an online game...

Yeh you can still get Top Trumps!

We sell them to toy shops RRP ?1.25 I think.
Cars, motorbikes that kind of thing.
We also have some James Bond ones with all the Bonds and the baddies in.
Each to their own I guess!

I know you can still get them but the shops round here only seem to stock the really dull packs, and they seem to be trying to make "top trumps" unisex by intrducing a barbie version of all things which is just plain wrong it is definately a boy thing

I should jolly well hope so! Otherwise your 'brothers' would be very cross with you indeed! ;)
