Top Trumps Moshi Monsters
Advantages: Easy to play and great family fun
Disadvantages: You may get stuck playing if for hours with your kids!
All of a sudden what seemed out of nowhere last year moshi monsters appeared and every child seemed to own a "moshling" on the online game named moshi monsters. My sister was one of many who was fascinated by the craze and not before long it seemed you could get just about everything moshi monster (cards, stickers, keyrings, clothing, watches and the list goes on!). I work in a toy shop and in the summer on 2011 we started repeatedly getting asked for moshi products, so my boss started to enquire and before long we were stockists of many of the products, one being the moshi monster top trumps. We have sold top trumps for many years and they had always been a success, they also made great stocking fillers.
==About the product==
The cards come in a green plastic case; the case can be easily hinged opened so the cards can be slid in and out. Inside the pack you will receive 30 moshi monster cards, a rule card and a code card. The cards are printed on thick glossy card and are of very good quality so are not going to bend easily. The 30 cards all represent a different moshling, which are all part of the online came, these include iggy and my personal favourite Purdy! Inside this pack you'll find exclusive bios, as well as combinations to attract each monster.
Each card has a picture of the moshling on; the cards can be battled in the following areas rarity, speed, cuteness, brains, and mischief.
To play the game, hand out an equal amount of cards to each player, you then take it in turns to say which statistic on your card is best and will beat the other players, if your monster turns out to be the best in the area you have chosen you then get the top card off each opponent although if one of your opponents monsters is better than they get your top card, this keeps happening until only 1 player is left in the game with all the cards and is crowned the winner!
These are a great family game and are ideal for taking in the car on long journeys, my 9 year old sister loves them and they have easily had their monies worth out of them, she also likes the fact it shows you all the different monsters, it also states that you can add more cards to the collection which may be meaning there is going to be a second series of the top trumps, i know the moshi monster mash up cards are on series 2 and I believe in some issues of the moshi monster magazine, one of the free gifts is a top trump card.
The card game can be bought in many online retailers including Amazon and eBay for around the £4 mark, I've also seen these in newsagents and supermarkets including Asda and Tesco's, again for £4 which I believe is great value for money as it can provide hours of fun as you can get a different result every time.
Summary: Cheap and cheerful, family fun card game!
