Create your own Top Trumps cardgame


All the cards are dealt among the players. There must be at least two players, and at least one card for each player. The starting player (normally the player to the dealer's left) selects a category from his or her topmost card and reads out its value. Each other player then reads out the value of the same category from their cards. The best (usually the largest, but in the case of a sports car's weight or a sprinter's 100m time, for instance, lower is considered better) value wins the "trick", and the winner takes all the cards of the trick and places them at the bottom of his or her pile. The winner then looks at her/his new topmost card, and chooses the category for the next round. In the event of a draw the cards are placed in the center and a new category is chosen from the next card by the same person as in the previous round. The winner of that round obtains all of the cards in the center as well as the top card from each player. Players are eliminated when they lose their last card, and the winner is the player who obtains the whole pack. Some variants of the rules allow 'three card pick', whereby a player who has only 3 cards remaining is allowed to choose any of their three cards to play with. Typically, this lengthens the game considerably. Wikipedia contributors, "Top Trumps," Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia, (accessed June 30, 2020).


To start creating your own card deck you need to provide an .jpg image(1) for every card, which should use the CMYK color model. We don't prevent uploading images in RGB color model, but the printing company needs to convert them, which will lead to a (slight) color shift. The images will be resized, but not distorted, to fit in the designated area.

In the description area(2) you can add a name or description of your item. It can have 1 to 58 characters.

There can be up to 8 category names aka titles(3) and their attached values on a card, at a maximum of 14 characters each. tutorial sample card
