Key workers feature in new Top Trumps pack!

A new edition of Top Trumps, honouring COVID-19 key and essential workers is now available.

The game lauds and applauds those key and essential workers who have saved Britain during the Pandemic – from doctors, nurses and paramedics to less high-profile professions such as pest controllers, midwives and sea merchants. Politicians, who are depicted on the Top Trumps card by Boris Johnson, and journalists are included too.

Claire Simon, Global Marketing Manager at Top Trumps, added, “We are sure that this new edition of Top Trumps can lift spirits in this very challenging and unprecedented period of time, as well as raising money for the NHS, with all net proceeds going direct to the NHS.”

Claire Simon, from Top Trumps, says, “Every single frontline key worker is, of course, a heroine and hero and would each score 10 (or even 11) out of 10 by any reckoning if we had devised a Hero category.

“By creating an Unsung Heroes category we have ensured varying marks, in keeping with the game’s core classic and its unique and much-loved branding. From our research, which has been intensively conducted over the six weeks, partners of key workers came out top in this section. There are an estimated one and a half million partners of key workers in Britain so that’s a lot of Unsung Heroes and Heroines.

“Many of the public we spoke to pointed out that partners too are putting their lives on the line, albeit less directly. As well as being there physically they are providing emotional support. For that reason we listed partners as key workers.”

In this version of the celebrated card game 30 different professions are listed, each marked in typical Top Trumps style across four separate scoring categories: Unsung Heroes; Street Style; Gadgets & Gizmos; and Originated, ie the year in which profession was established.

Top Trumps Britain at its Best: Key Workers is available priced £5 exclusively at: and comes in a twin deck (the other pack being Britain at its Best: Hospitals).

And the dual Britain at its Best deck really IS Britain at its very best, literally. The whole product – from concept to completion – is 100% British, with the cards being manufactured by The St Austell Printing Company in St. Austell, Cornwall.

The £5 price for both packs includes postage and packaging and the Top Trumps makers say £1.50 from each dual deck sold go to the NHS.
