Mini Beast Trump Cards

This fantastic Nature Detectives mini beast trump card game is great for your pupils play with their friends and family!  

Any number of people can play.  Just print and cut out the cards and then follow the instructions below:

  1. Shuffle and deal all the cards face down.
  2. Each player holds their cards so that they can see the top card only.  The player to the dealer's left starts by reading out an item from the top card (e.g. Size 7).
  3. The other players then read out the same item.
  4. The one with the best or highest value wins and places all the top cards including their own to the bottom of their pile.  It is then their turn again to choose an item from the next card.
  5. If 2 or more cards share the top value then all the cards are placed in the middle and the same player chooses again from the next card.  The winner of the hand takes the cards in the middle as well.
  6. The person with all the cards at the end is the winner!
