Buy the Official Instructables Card Game NOW!

Top Trumps is a card game of chance, knowledge and skill. A fight to the death to posses the whole of a deck of special cards.

This version of the game replaces the classic cars, aeroplanes and tanks with you, the instructables community! The following steps explain why we did it, how we did it, how you can get some and how to play.

This collaboration was brought to you with massive help from gmjhowe, Lithium Rain, Kiteman, Yokozuna, KentsOkay and Lemonie.

Video starring gmjhowe and rainbowhan.

We wanted this project to be open to as many people as possible! For that reason you have two options to get hold of some instructables top trumps to play with your friends, family, colleagues and other instructables lovers!

Buy 'em: If you'd rather have some nice glossy, double sided, rounded corner, professionally printed card cards, printed by gmjhowe at his UK print shop, click here to order a pack using Paypal.

Oh, do we get a patch for buying the cards? There is a picture of me holding up the cards behind Tetranitrate... I showed them to the gang at Maker Faire NYC.  
That would be a great patch!

do you have any left? and is there a discount for chaps in it? (just asking in case)
gmjhowe (author)  acidbass5 years ago
We have a few packs left, no discount, it is to raise money for charity after all.

I just flicked trough the deck (thanks for bringing a spare), unless I missed one I've got 1 statistic that'll beat every other card.

How do I buy multiple packs?
gmjhowe (author)  ewilhelm6 years ago
I have just updated the paypal link. You should be able to set your own quantity now.
ewilhelm6 years ago
Make me a 300x250 and/or 728x90 image of your main image, and I'll point some house ads to this forum topic.
gmjhowe (author)  ewilhelm6 years ago
 Also, could the adverts link directly to the Instructable, opposed to the forum topic?

Thanks again
Done.  Look for the ads around the site.
gmjhowe (author)  ewilhelm6 years ago
Thank you. Ordered yours yet Eric? :) Think you'll be impressed with your total views, though I guess you have access to that stat already.

My cash is yours and soon those cards shall be mine.

Say, is the shipping included in that price?  I saw no mention of it on the PayPal page.
gmjhowe (author)  jeff-o6 years ago
 The price is inclusive off postage and packaging.
jeff-o gmjhowe6 years ago
Sweet.  Well, I can't wait to receive them!  :D
gmjhowe (author)  The Ideanator6 years ago
 How is it spam, if its in the 'For Sale' area?
Not any more!  It's Featured :-)
Oh, yes, but of the extra-healthy, low-calorie, high-fibre variety.

Isn't that just grass?
