It was way back in 1977, when scary hair and flares were ‘in’, and Rod Stewart terrified young girls with the thought that ’Tonight’s the Night’ that the cult game of Top Trumps was born. Like all crazes, it blazed a trail across the country, igniting fires of nerdy enthusiasm everywhere. Well for those of you whose lives were irrevocably touched by the phenomenon that was Top Trumps, may we present, the new game that will knock Top Trumps off its perch, the game that will in fact trump Top Trumps. Crap Trumps has arrived and now you have 2 different packs to choose from.
Each pack has 56 cards (rather than 32 in trumps) and the packs are made of better quality card and they’re 33% bigger – no doubt because we’ve all grown up a bit since then. Instead of the collection of cool and classic cars adorning the cards with their super-charged features and scores, Series 1 and the brand- spankingly-new-ever-so-shiny-gosh-we-really-are-so-very-excited Series 2 of Crap Trumps is all about the really rubbish cars we all actually drive in the real world. Side-splittingly funny, Crap Trumps features the deeply irrelevant, highly irregular and downright stupid qualities of some shockingly crap cars. Such as windscreen wiper speeds (per minute), cost needed to pass MOT (often well into the thousands), surface area of rust, and of course the general and all important Crap Factor of the car.
They’re all infinitely funnier than the original game and considerably less nerdy – why would you want to play anything else? Crap Trumps rocks.
