Buy the Official Instructables Card Game NOW! Answered

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.

do you have any left? and is there a discount for chaps in it? (just asking in case)

We have a few packs left, no discount, it is to raise money for charity after all.

cool I was mainly asking if there was a discount as a joke

How long does it take to come though? I bought some on the 31st july and still havent got them? Any Ideas?

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

Okay. Thanks for letting me know. My mum was getting woried but I'll let her know. Thanks!

15 sold now. 3 a day :)

How many have you sold?

Wow that's a lot of cards! Is it every member or something?

There are over a million members - not likely. ;)

Really? Oh I didn't think there were so many! Am I in it? :D

Yay! I've bought them. I live in the UK, so they should take some time to get here :-)

Thanks :-P

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.

It was $15.60 CAD for all you canucks out there.

How do I buy multiple packs?

I have just updated the paypal link. You should be able to set your own quantity now.

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?

Thanks again

Done.  Look for the ads around the site.

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.

How can I see my card?!

If you buy a deck randofo PM me and I'll crop your card and send it to use as an avatar if you like :)

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.

 The price is inclusive off postage and packaging.

Sweet.  Well, I can't wait to receive them!  :D

Oh, yes, but of the extra-healthy, low-calorie, high-fibre variety.

I never actually thought to watch the video until now...


 How long will it take to get across the pond?  I think the QEII sails once a month.

Be with you in 2 weeks? They're hopefully getting printed this week then we'll be dispatching them post haste par avion. (I say we but mean gmjhowe :p )

Ordered mine.
