Top Trumps Giveaway

There are plenty of companies knocking on the door of JK Rowling's door wanting to obtain a license to tie their products to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter that she created.  So you have to admit it is impressive when she reaches out to a product herself to encourage it to incorporate a Harry Potter theme.  That's just the case when it comes to the Top Trumps card game.

Teachers in the United Kingdom have been encouraging students to play this card deck game that incorporate a variety of themes ranging from animals to wizards since the 1970's as a fun way to improve children's literacy and numeracy skills.  In fact, British author Rowling herself grew up playing Top Trumps as a child.  Based upon her admiration for the game, she contacted the company about working with them to create Harry Potter card decks.  Now that is a nice endorsement!

Top Trumps now has a variety of card decks themed around various Harry Potter movies including Prisoner of Azkaban, Half-Blood Prince, Goblets of Fire, Order of the Phoenix, and Deathly Hallows Part I + Part II.  Each card in one of these Top Trumps' Harry Potter themed decks shows a character from the featured film.  The card contains a picture of the character, a paragraph describing a highlighted scene, and skill rankings for the individual in categories such as cunning, courage, magic ability, temper and wisdom for use in playing the game.  We have the Deathly Hallows Part I and Part II Top Trumps decks and enjoy playing them together as a family over and over again.


Teachers have been recommending Top Trumps for decades because while playing the game each colorfully illustrated card used boasts facts and figures that get kids reading and using numbers so that they are learning while having fun.  It is an easy-to-play game that is sure to captivate children's attention.  Recommended for ages 4 and up, my tweens are always enthused to play Top Trumps. With more than 60 themed card decks to choose from parents are sure to find one that is sure to delight most any kid.

While a number of Top Trumps' decks are pop culture themed including Marvel's Avengers, Big Bang Theory, Despicable Me, Fast & Furious, Star Wars ... and of course Harry Potter, they've just introduced four brand new decks for 2018 that put a focus on STEM with card topics that mimic the big questions kids ponder outside of the classroom.  Take a look at the Sensational Science, Terrific Technology, Extraordinary Engineering and Peculiar Problems Top Trumps card decks.
