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.

We're selling decks of these cards, printed double sided on quality card, for the bargain price of £10 delivered worldwide. All profits go towards funding the Instructables stall at the UK Maker Faire in Newcastle on March 13th/14th!

Step 1: Choosing the cards - by Yokozuna!

Picture of Choosing the cards - by Yokozuna!
One of the hardest bits of this project was choosing the right instructablers for the game! With so many to choose from we were bound to offend someone by forgetting about them. Since it's just a game we hope you're not offended if you're not on the list. If you ARE offended, blame Yokozuna. It's all his fault!!!!

We tried to pick all the obvious instructablers with lots of ibles and comments under their belts. We've thrown in a few surprises to keep the game interesting!  Choosing 104 names out of thousands and thousands of people was a difficult process, so please don't feel bad if you were left out.  Instead, think of it as a real honor to be included in the deck.

Is it a game? Or a collectable?
Jayefuu (author)  mint0012 years ago
Both!
Are these still available? and is their a new edition printed every year? Oddly enough I seem to have begun collecting instructable icon items and these would be an awesome addition

Doesn't look like I'm in there, heh. Oh, well, what fun! Congrats, Goodhart and StumpChunkman! :D
what you should do is when there is a new member you pm them and ask them if they want to be in it and if yes you should add it on
This is for people that have contributed to the site, not new people with no instructables, the pack would also get very big very quickly!

Has it been too long? Can I still get some?
I think gmjhowe still has some left - just drop him a PM.

If he doesn't reply in a day or two, I have his email address.

Well I did the paypal thing. Does that go to him?
Wow! How did I miss I was on this! Thanks everyone!

Maybe in the future, you could make other decks commemorating other members. Its a great idea and well done.
