National Park comes up 'trumps'

Published Thursday 5 March 2009

The family favourite ‘top trumps’ has been re-designed with a twenty-first century twist, thanks to the New Forest National Park Authority.

The new on-line game can be found in the ‘fun zone’ on the Authority’s website.

Each card in the game has four categories; age, spotability, wow factor and speed. The challenge is to beat your competitor (or computer) by choosing a category on your card that has a high score. What makes this game even more fun is that you can’t see your competitor’s card until you’ve chosen your category.

After each round, the player learns a fascinating Forest fact related to each card.

Sue Palma, Education Officer, said: ‘Since we launched the ‘fun zone’ last year with its games and quizzes, its popularity has been overwhelming. We wanted to add a game that would appeal to children and their parents.

‘Any one can play the game, have lots of fun and learn amazing facts about the New Forest.’
