TopTrumps Playing Cards

Top Trumps Playing Cards

This Nostalgia section is dedicated to the playing cards called Top Trumps which I used to play ages ago. These were sets of 32 cards each being about a special category, such as aircraft, tanks, locomotives, soccer players, etc. Each card of the set will have a picture followed by 4 or 5 numeric data, such as speed, length, weight, so on. The instruction of the game is played can be viewed below. I had the first set of cards at the age of 7 and was a common game played at school, bus, or indoors between my friends.

With time I started to increase my collection of these card sets, and I think I had about 10 different sets, of which I still posses 4 now. The others are lost, stolen or given away.The ones I have are: Airliners, Private jets, Space Craft and English Soccer 1. I really miss the set of Super Heroes (examples: Silver Surfer,Green Latern, Superman, SpiderMan, Batman) and the Country and Western heroes (examples: Geronimo, Calamity Jane, Buffalo Bill, etc.) Anybody do still posses these card sets - I am very interested to add more galeries in my site !!)

In this page, I scanned all the cards of 3 sets I have, and are aranged in a cool galleries which can be viewed by clicking the appropriate link below. When I began to grow older and was more creative I decided to make MY OWN card sets which I named Gobots II. since I liked to play with Gobots toys very much. I also dedicated a Nostalgia page to the Gobots !
