I don’t know whether any of you remember Top Trump cards? But I thought it would be interesting to see what guitars I would include in a Guitar Top Trumps pack. Whilst doing this I thought it would be even more interesting to throw it open to a wider audience. So what guitars would you include in Guitar Top Trumps?
Now I have fond memories of Top Trumps for my school days in the late 70s and early 80s. Top Trumps, for those who have never encountered the game, is a card game. First created in 1968 Top Trumps is typically played by two people. The cards are dealt out and the idea is that you pick a category on the card which has a numerical value and try to trump the value on your opponents card. If you beat their value you win their card. The game continues until someone wins all the cards.
There were loads of Top Trump packs that you could collect, from warships to football players, super cars to horror characters. The game was strangely absorbing and probably quite nerdy as you learnt a lot of useless facts like the distance range of a Boeing 747 or the Fear Factor of Dracula.
Now I thought that Top Trumps was a thing that had disappeared, like many childhood toys. However, I was pleased to see that Top Trumps is still around today with movie tie in packs being very popular.
Having re-discovered an old favourite that got me to thinking about my main passion – Guitars and how they would make a brilliant Top Trump card set. But the question is what guitars would feature in my set of Guitar Top Trumps and what would I include as the numerical categories.
There would be the expected guitars, the Strat, Telecaster, Les Paul and SG but what other guitars would be included? That is when I thought I would ask you. What would you include and what would you have as categories?
Let us know and who knows maybe we can put a Guitar Top Trumps pack togeather.
