Did you play Top Trumps at school? Before the cult programme that is Top Gear was even a glimmer in Jeremy Clarkson’s eye, I was pretty hot on super cars – the Stig of Top Trumps! It’s a geeky game, succinctly (and somewhat drily) described by Wikipedia as follows: “Each card contains a list of numerical data, and the aim of the game is to compare these values in order to try to trump and win an opponent’s card.” It’s back in fashion too. Apparently, last year Top Trumps sold over 40 million packs!!!!!
So what has this got to do with wine? Wine Trumps®. A geeky game for geeky wine lovers. Each pack has 34 cards featuring some of the world’s top drops, complete with original wine labels, regional maps and wine descriptions. You may not be in the market for Lafite or DRC, but why not play Wine Trumps® and build a virtual stellar cellar as you trump your fellow players on average price per bottle, vineyard history, rarity value and drinkability, in the process?
Wine Trumps® costs £6.99 at The Wine Gift Centre.
