About

The World Cup is the greatest show on Earth. Every four years, the best international teams come together to compete for football's ultimate prize, and this summer 32 nations will convene in Russia, hoping to create an unforgettable moment that their whole country will never forget.

We love the World Cup. It's our favourite tournament, and we knew we had to celebrate the legends of the past that have helped turn millions of fans onto this crazy game called football. Now you can share in our love of the game with our World Cup Legends 2-in-1 card game!

An elite group of experts (us) have selected the 52 most iconic players ever to have graced football’s premier international tournament, based on a number of key factors, and we have created a classic, minimalist, memorable card design that can be used in conventional card games but also in Top Trumps-style matchups.

 The Categories

Longevity
Longevity

The World Cup takes place every four years, so only the greatest players have the endurance to compete in two tournaments, or even more. Did the legend shine brightly for one glorious tournament, or was their impact lasting across a sustained period, in order to secure their spot in popular culture?

Big Games
Big Games

Plenty of forwards take on the rule of bully, bagging their goals against the little guys. But our list is preserved for the players who stood up to be counted at the business end of the tournament. Those who get a high rating here have produced memorable performances in the knockout stages or crucial group fixtures.

Controversy
Controversy

Some legends are etched in World Cup history for all the wrong reasons. A vicious foul, a dishonest handball, or a piece of gamesmanship? The players who score high on this list have known to be villains of the showpiece.

Iconic Moments
Iconic Moments

The reason why the World Cup is so beloved is because fans attach emotion and nostalgia to the memories they enjoy during that glorious summer month once every four years. If your player immediately creates the image of a wonderful moment in time, then he will score high on this attribute.

Legend Status
Legend Status

We combine all of these elements to create the ultimate Legend Score, to define the players who have helped transform the World Cup into the most-watched and beloved sporting event in history.

If you love the real Ronaldo, have a secret respect for Diego Maradona's handball, or wish Zinedine Zidane had kept his head instead of swinging it, then these are the cards that can help revive the World Cup nostalgia you know you need in your life.

GAME PLAY

Playing cards
Playing cards

Playing Cards: Traditional playing cards - 2 colour (red / black), 4 suits, 52 cards.

Player stats, top-trump style
Player stats, top-trump style

Top Trumps: To start the game, shuffle and deal all the cards face down. 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 a category from the top card (e.g. Legend Status, 88) The other players then read out the same category from their cards. The one with the highest value wins, and that player collects all the top cards, including their own, and moves them to the bottom of their pile. It is then their turn again to choose a category from the next card.

Penalty Shootout Game
Penalty Shootout Game

 Penalty Shootout: Can be played by 1 or 2 players. 

1 player: The deck is shuffled. Draw 11 cards; 6 cards are laid out in a 3x2 grid and 5 cards are kept in the players hand. Turn the top card in your hand, assign a chosen attribute and choose a slot in the grid to 'shoot' at. Compare the chosen attribute, if the card in hand is highest score a goal, if not it is 'saved'. Try to win the shootout by correctly calling all 5 cards.

2 player: The deck is shuffled. Both players draw 11 cards; 6 cards are laid out in a 3x2 grid and 5 cards are kept in the players hand. Decide which player will go first. 1st player turns the top card in your hand, and chooses an attribute and choose a slot in the opponent's grid to 'shoot' at. Compare the chosen attribute, if the card in hand is highest score a goal, if not it is 'saved'. Opponent then does the same and repeat. As per a shootout it is best of 5 penalties. If the result is a tie, shuffle the cards and replace the deck and continue in a turn-by-turn sudden death.

We hope the campaign is a success and in future we plan to produce more decks for different football competitions and other sports, music and celebrities. Check out www.legendscards.co.uk for more information.

Risks and challenges

The most time consuming aspect of the project was the illustration, and that is complete and ready, so the only risk is with fulfilment.

We plan to work with leading card manufacturers and fulfilment and distribution partners so we hope that will help us with this project.

We fund projects regularly on Kickstarter and so we know the frustration of funding a project which never delivers and so we will do everything within our power to make sure you get the pledges you support us by funding.

And thank you again!
