Limited Edition Royal Wedding 19.05.18 Card Game Ranks Bride-To-Be, Harry, The Queen, William, Diana And Even Ed Sheeran!
London, UK (May 8, 2018) – From Style Icon to People Person, Meghan Markle is about to trump every member of the British Royal Family in the newest pack of Top Trumps Limited Edition Royal Wedding ($9.99) on sale Wednesday, May 9. The gorgeous bride-to-be trumps every Royal across the game’s five themed categories.
A round of Top Trumps involves two to six players using their math skills to “trump” their opponents with numeral rankings in five statistical categories. The newest Royal Wedding pack boasts VIP, Age, People Person, Style Icon and the all-important Big Day Rating.
Meghan beats Kate Middleton in a Style Icon listing in the pack, scoring a maximum 10 out of 10 and being declared in her Top Trumps citation as ‘The Queen of Style.’ The former actress also takes top billing in a Big Day Rating category, along with her husband-to-be Prince Harry. Each score 100 out of 100. Most impressive, Meghan reigns supreme – alongside Princess Diana – in a People Person section, notching a perfect 10.
“From these ratings, Meghan clearly is The New People’s Princess – alongside Diana – as well as the Queen of Hearts AND Style,” says Tom Liddell, Top Trumps Brand Guardian and Managing Director of Winning Moves UK, who own the Top Trumps brand. “It’s quite a Royal coup!
“Rumour (spelled the British way) has it that she had her first dress fitting at Kensington Palace in January. Ralph & Russo are currently tipped to be the favourite; the speculation comes after bookmakers stopped taking bets on British designer, Alexander McQueen.”
The deck features The Ring, The Corgis and Dexter The Cat! The Persian and Bengal mix (so the card reads) has a People Person ranking of 8. Meow! There are plenty of surprises in this must-have edition including an American President.
Royal watchers and the rest of us already know that Meghan and Harry have invited 1,200 common people from across the UK who are recognized for their community service. Here at home we’ll happily do our part by learning the fun facts while playing a merry game of Top Trumps Royal Wedding.
For those watching on the telly on May 19, look for the Top Trumps team at Windsor Castle, talking to the crowd! This royal edition is a keepsake.
For anyone unfamiliar with Top Trumps, it first hits shop shelves in 1977 and since then more than 55 million packs have been produced across over 1,000 different themes. The game is for sale all across the world and in 16 different languages, including Icelandic, Japanese and Hungarian.
