Aim of the game: The aim of the game is for you to win all the Top Triumphs cards from your opponent (the computer).
The rules: The rules are very straight-forward. The Top Triumphs cards are dealt out between you (left) and the computer (right). When the 'New game' button is pressed, one of you is then chosen to go first, and the appropriate card turned face up. One of the following will now occur:
- Your turn - your card (left) is face up, and it is your turn to play. You must look at the categories on the card, and select one that you believe has a higher value than that on the computer's card. When you select the category it will stay red, and the computer's card will be turned over. This will also have the same category highlighted in red. Your value must beat the computer's (a draw is not good enough!). The cards will stay like this until you press the 'Continue' button. When the button is pressed, the winner will get both cards, and the scores will be updated. If you have won this hand then the game proceeds as before, otherwise it is the computer's turn.
- Computer's turn - it's card (right) is face up. After a second the computer will evaluate the categories on it's card and select one to play. It does this with no knowledge of what values are on your card. This will be highlighted red. After a further second your card is turned over. This will also have the same category highlighted in red. The computer's value must beat your's (a draw is not good enough!). The cards will stay like this until you press the 'Continue' button. When the button is pressed, the winner will get both cards, and the scores will be updated. The game will then proceed with the winner of the hand playing the next card.
The game is over when one of the players has all the Web Trumps cards. A new game can be started by pressing the 'Play again' button.
