HB Idea Top Trumps

Pit the stars of the Show (the ideas) against each other.
  [vote for,

HB Card games have been mentioned, as have Top Trumps, but as far as I have searched no one has actually put the two together
We have some beautifully simple stats for each Card as I shall lay out below

Buns, Bones, Links, Age, and Anno's. Lets take this example below.

Dr. Bob was sitting pretty, he had a pile of cards, and was well ahead of the rest, UB was sitting with 3 cards left and was looking down and out. Whilst it was UB's Call; Dr. Bob was sitting expectantly on a Hullaballoon
: Buns -190, Bones - 11, Links - 6, Age - 52, Anno's - 145
Bliss on a "Will you be my Valentine" spam
: Buns -3, Bones - 28, Links - 0, Age - 54, Anno's - 25,
whilst po with Halfbakery Sock Puppets
:Buns -31, Bones - 1, Links - 3, Age - 1, Anno's - 53)
& T_E_A with Burninthe Flag
: Buns -6, Bones - 0, Links - 2, Age - 1, Anno's - 8)
looked nervous as they fiddled with their cards.

Quietly UB declared "Links", Bliss sighed, declaring her zero, and throwing her card into the middle, T_E_A looked hopeful with a 2, whilst po, beaten with her 1, tossed in her Puppets. Dr. Bob's Smile widened, gently flacking his Hullaballoon down and annunciating 6 simultaneously.

"Too bad" said UB, placing his Vagina Jam face up on the table,
(Buns -43, Bones - 118, Links - 7, Age - 64, Anno's - 176).

Probably better than mine... [The_Englishman_Abroad, Aug 11 2006]


       The words all all in my native tongue, but they are put in an order that makes no sense to me.

       [GC] Does this look any better, or is it the substance rather than the layout which was Gibberish? (with a capital G)
Quite right Jinbish but no one had really covered them, thats when I started counting annotations and thought, "bone or bun, it needs to be done", of course, I am still at work and may be a little mad........
The_Englishman_Abroad, Aug 11 2006

       I think I must be missing some cultural references. From the category I can tell this is a game. It seems to involve cards. Or possibly mathematics.   

       There is nothing here about the rules of the game, or how it is played and scored.
Galbinus_Caeli, Aug 11 2006

       aahh, perhaps my mistaken assumption.
Top Trumps is a game where you have a pack of cards and each card has seperate values on it, take the above version, each card has 5 stats
Everyone is dealt the cards out evenly, you make a face down stack, and, taking one card at a time, all players draw from their own stack, first player picks a stat to call. Everyone then reveals their cards and the highest of the declared stat wins (Hence how UB's 7 in Links wins all)
The winner then begins the next round, and picks a different stat (at least those were the house rules we played), you carry on playing until you are the last remaining player with cards. [Link]

       Aha! Now it makes sense. Ok, I can give that a bun.
Galbinus_Caeli, Aug 11 2006

       DrBob's pregnant - whatever next!   

       I've never tossed a puppet in my life - I swear...   

       T.E.A. - his?
lord, honey - you've been abroad too long.
me too I fear.

       whoops! Long day I fear po my dear, corrected, and grovelling apologies....
The_Englishman_Abroad, Aug 11 2006

       This hullaballoon I'm sitting on...how long until it hatches?
DrBob, Aug 12 2006

       hhmmm, I guess that depends on how long have you been playing "Mother Bob" to it..?
It could be due any day now!
