I haven't actually played the card game yet, so I subtracted 1 star for the lack of description about how to play the game or clear pictures of the cards to try and figure it out. I don't know anybody who follows fashion like I do so I doubt I'll actually get to play this game. My review is basically trying to make up for what I wished was in the decription.
Here's what the 'How to play' card states:
* You can play the game with any number of people. Shuffle the cards and deal them all equally between the players, making sure the cards are facedown. Players hold their cards face up in a pile, so they can only see their top card.
* Toss a coin or role a dice to see who goes first.
* The first player chooses an item from his or her top card (for example, 'red carpet wow! factor 72') and reads it out. The other players then read out the value of the same item on their top cards. The player with the highest value wins all the top cards and places them at the bottom of his or her pile. The winning player then has another turn, choosing an item from the next card.
* If the top value is shared by more than one card, all the cards being played are placed in the middle and the same player chooses again from the next card in their hand. Whoever wins that round also takes the cards in the middle.
* The winner is the person with all the cards at the end.
Each card illustrates an item, says what it is and what season/year it's from, a quick note about it and lists values for the following six categories: day-to-day practicality, eBay top bid, timeless appeal, mainstream imitations, red carpet wow!factor, and trendsetting potential.
There is one other card marked 'A note on the selection criteria and marking system'. It reads "Fashion is not an exact science and selecting 30 historically relevant yet also fun and contemporary fashion items is an almost impossible task. One person's classic is old-fashioned to another. If selecting is difficult, the scoring these items presented a further challenge with lots of scope for controversy. How does one rank 'red carpet wow! factor', 'timeless appeal', 'day-to-day practicality'? Even 'eBay top bid' is not without its difficulties because some of these items were not for sale on eBay at the time of preparing the cards, or the price changed (for the purpose of the game we created an average online sale price in US Dollars). Although it's a matter of opinion, we relied on Maia Adams' expert and considered views on fashion - while leaving plenty of room for heated debate!" I'm not exactly sure who Maia Adams is (other than she did the text and research for the cards) or why the manufactorer felt the need to include a "disclaimer" card.
