Doctor Who Top Trumps Set 9

Available to order from www.amazon.co.uk or www.ebay.co.uk

Top Trumps has been played since the 1970s when the first packs took the playgrounds of the UK by storm. Its success is partly due to how easy and compelling it is to play. Shuffle and deal all the cards face down.

Each player takes their share of the cards and holds them so that they can only see the top card. The first player reads out a selected statistic (e.g. Weight or Speed).

  • An ideal companion for travelling or at home
  • Fun for children and adults alike
  • Pack contains 30 themed feature cards
  • Suitable for everyone over the age of 3

The other players then read out the same statistic from their own top cards. The player with the best or highest value wins and places all the cards on the bottom of his pile. It is then that player’s turn to choose a statistic from the next card.

top-trumps-9

If two or more cards share the top value or data is unavailable for that statistic, then all the top cards are placed in the middle and the same player chooses from the next card.

The winner of that hand takes all the cards from the middle as well. The person with all the cards at the end is the winner, easy. The better you know the deck, the better your chances.

      She’s been in the past 3 series of the show, and these top trumps seem to be based off series 9, which she was quite important to, so it would have been silly to have not included her

    Why on earth did they make “Me/Ashlidr” small?! 🙁

      Oh my gosh she looks tiny!

      Quite often graphical designs like this don’t acutally take genuine heights or proportions into account, as all it is is a montage of different characters.

      More like why on earth did they put her on the cover. Or in the series!

      In the show she’s only just smaller than Clara. They should’ve put Ashildr behind her like Osgood is behind Missy.

      It looks like they’ve tried to edit a series 8 promo picture to give her the series 9 outfit and hair, but very badly. The hair is even a different resolution to the rest of her 😛
