The digital version of the Volcanoes Top Trumps game follows on from the hugely popular card Volcanoes Top Trumps game. The digital version provides a free tool that can bring the devastating impact and natural wonder of thirty of the planet’s volcanoes into the home and classroom and has both a ‘traditional’ Top Trumps style game as well as additional aspects which extend its entertainment and educational values.
The game’s creators, all experts from the collaborative project STREVA (Strengthening Resilience in Volcanic Areas), have ranked them based on six categories – explosivity, deadliness, devastation potential, height, unpredictability and wow factor.
“We were delighted when Top Trumps teamed up with us to create the Volcanoes Top Trumps game, and even more so when we saw just how popular it’s been with volcano enthusiasts of all ages. Although the game is great fun we thought long and hard to ensure that the information within it is informative and educational. It’s really exciting that the digital version provides an accessible, free and entertaining way of bringing volcanoes to life at home and in the class room. Better still, you can share your scores with volcanophiles around the world!” - Prof. Jenni Barclay (ENV), Project Leader
