Description Edit | History

The greatest single sports show on earth takes place in South Africa this year (2010). The World Cup Card Game allows players to play through the whole tournament in around 75mins.
The game consists of 65 cards. 32 of these represent all the national teams taking part. Another 32 cards are Action cards which are used to create the scorelines for each match. The final card is a summary list of what the Action cards can be used for.

All the teams are randomly divided between the players. These are kept face-down on the table in front of the player until required.

Each group is played match by match. The players controlling the four teams in Group 1: South Africa, Mexico, Uruguay and France now reveal those Team cards.

Each team card is coloured according to the national football team strip, it also shows the national flag and a note stating their best performance ever achieved in any World Cup tournament. There is also a grey rectangle with the number of cards that team receives in the group stage - this is always 7 or 8. There is also a 2 Goal and 3 Goal symbol, sometimes covered by a cross. Any crossed symbol means that this particular team cannot use that type of card to it's full potential e.g, Argentina have the 3 Goal symbol crossed but the 2 Goal symbol uncrossed, therefore Argentina can only play a 3 Goal card as a 2 Goal card.

The number of cards and the status of the 3 and 2 goal symbols distinguishes the better teams from the lesser teams. Brazil, for example, have 8 cards and no crossed symbols which gives them the maximum options; New Zealand have 7 cards and both symbols are crossed which gives them the fewest options. Despite the small difference between the various teams, the better teams generally have a better chance. However, the differences are not as great as in The World Cup Board Game.
Play continues with the first group games being played in the order on the tournament format in the rules. The first game is South Africa v. Mexico, so each player controlling those teams play from 1 to 4 cards out of that teams' hand. The number of cards should be kept secret until both players have chosen, then they are both revealed. Goals are scored for that team in that match, Defences, Fouls and Offsides can reduce goals whereas Penalties and multiple Attacks add goals. Any spare Attacks and penalties require a card draw from the unused deck to see if they can be turned into goals.

Each match is resolved in the same way. All scores from all games are recorded - best to use the pre-formatted scoresheet on the www.gamesfortheworld.co.uk/Downloads web page.

The KO stages are played differently, more akin to the Board game. The Round of 16 is split into 2 sessions with 3 cards dealt to each player involved, irrespective of the number of teams. Cards can be played on any active team until the deck is exhausted and all cards played.

From the Quarter-Finals onwards all games are played in each round simultaneously.
Draws are resolved by card draws to determine if goals have been scored.

Easy to play and a great sequel to the Board game.

3 World Cup 2010 Actual Performance Stickers
These are the stickers that are to be used in conjuction with the Actual 2010 Performance variant [b]This variant does three things:[/b] 1) It ranks the teams according to their actual rather than their estimated performance in the 2010 World Cup. 2) It ranks the teams using the colour/color coding of the World Cup Board Games series. 3) It accentuates the differences in the different ranks so that the better ranks should perform better more of the time, when compared to the original card game. (The orginal card game didn't have the benefit of hindsight of actual performance and therefore needed to treat teams more equally). [b]To play this game:[/b] 1) Download from this site, the file 'World Cup 2010 Actual Performance Stickers.jpg' 2) Print off this file,...
