Buy the Official Instructables Card Game NOW! Answered

Picture of

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. They're 10GBP/15USD/11.5 Euros. All profits after paying for materials and time go towards our Instructables stall at the Newcastle Maker Faire 2011. Check back here in a few weeks to see how much we've made to go towards spreading the Instructables love at the UK Maker Faire.

Print 'em: Once we've sold 100 packs of printed cards to raise money for our Instructables table at the Maker Faire UK in 2011, a pdf will be added to this step so you can print your own!

Please add your ibles username as a note in the paypal payment

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.

Hey, thanks for your purchase, I recently collated another batch, to fill the last few orders from the first wave of purchases. The next wave (those bought during July/August) should go out next week. I am only a one man operation, so I can only get things out so quickly, so bear with me. :D

Make me a 300x250 and/or 728x90 image of your main image, and I'll point some house ads to this forum topic.

 Also, could the adverts link directly to the Instructable, opposed to the forum topic?

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.
