The 2015 Top Trumps Tournament is underway!

Top Trumps have teamed up with BEAST QUEST, the best-selling series of children’s fantasy adventure novels. Like Top Trumps, the Beast Quest books are known to encourage reluctant young readers to immerse themselves in the subject matter and, as such, are a useful classroom resource.

For those new to the Tournament, The National Top Trumps School Tournament is an annual event where thousands of schools up and down the country battle it out to find the UK’s Top Trumps Champion.

All participating schools receive a Welcome Pack which includes a Top Trumps Turbo game*, 2 free Beast Quest Top Trumps packs, a poster, certificate and details on how to take part.

Over the course of the 6-week period, pupils play Top Trumps in school either in after school clubs, lunchtime or part of lesson time. In a simple process of elimination, schools eventually uncover their School’s Top Trumps Champion.

These winning Champions are then entered into the Online Elimination Round where they will play a digital version of Top Trumps online and compete to be in the Top 12 on the leaderboard.

The Top 12 players on the leaderboard will earn themselves a place in the Grand Final which takes place in June.
