Top Trump Rules

  • Both players start with a set number of playing cards each.
  • The aim of the game is to own all the cards.
  • The player to the start a new game is chosen by tossing a coin.
  • That player then looks at the first card in his hand and chooses an indicator to play.
  • His/her opponent looks at the rating corresponding to his/her own first card.
  • The highest rating wins and the winner gets the two cards that were being played.
  • If the opponent wins, he/she takes control of the game, otherwise it's the starting player that begins the next round.
  • In the event of a draw, the two cards that were being played are placed into a pile and are won by the winner of the next round.
  • The game ends when a player doesn't have any more cards in his/her hand.
