Game gets a godly makeover

From The Church Times-

A BUSINESSMAN who is a fan of Top Trumps trading cards has laun ched a version that features Old Testament characters instead of TV heroes and sports stars.

Steven Strongman, the promoter of Testament Trumps, is quoted as saying his card game is “fun, but has a serious message”. Many young people who are fans of Top Trumps, he said, are unfamiliar with the Bible and its teaching, and his cards “address that issue”.

Top Trumps cards, laun ched in the 1970s, feature football clubs, and subjects ranging from Star Wars to The Da Vinci Code. Players compare the values of sets of num bers on the cards, and try to trump their opponents. Early versions of the cards have become collectibles.
