Ultimate Top Trumps

Postby Amerika » Tue Nov 23, 2010 11:12 pm

In my country we have a game called Top Trumps. Everyone has a stack of cards with a number of statistics written on. One person picks a statistic, person with the highest statistic wins the round. Capiche?


The way we play Ultimate Top Trumps is thus:

1) I pick a category.
2) You all pick cards.
3) I reveal the category.
4) You tell me why you win.

Your card can be anything, my category can be anything.

=================Game I==============

I have picked my category. I will reveal it once at least four people have posted their "cards"

Um, The Simpsons.

It is the longest-running American sitcom and longest-running American animated program of all time, and is the highest rated cartoon of all time, at one point in time averaging higher than 25 million viewers.

Like that?

It said on the Wiki that I needed stats, so I Googled it but then got too lazy to actually find real stats so I copied and pasted that instead.

.... I already lost, didn't I...

I like the sounds of this game. It's like double-blind Apples to Apples!

My card is the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami.

I'm not sure I entirely understand this.

My card is the Japanese birth and death rate.

If I understand it right, it'd work something like this:

Amerika picks the category "Chewy." We don't know this.

The great unwashed submit a bunch of things:

Nuclear weapons
William Faulkner
Mandarin Oranges
A Fairy Princess
Existentialism


And then we have to try and convince him that whichever we submitted is the chewiest of the bunch. So the Mandarin Oranges guy says, "hey, mine's the only thing you actually eat," and whoever submitted William Faulkner says "William Faulkner is made of uncooked meat! That's pretty chewy right there." and Existentialism says "Hey, you know what's tough to swallow and/or hard to digest? Existentialism, that's what." And everybody has a good laugh and Amerika chooses a victor.
