Cricket Attax is the official IPL trading card game. There are cards for every player,from stars like Sachin Tendulkar to unknown players like Rilee Rossow.
There are 4 different types of cards; normal, silver cards– which are a bit stronger than regular cards, gold cards– which are stronger than both normal and silver and powerplay cards. There are powerplays for each team,and they only benefit players from that team (e.g- Mumbai Indians powerplays will only work on Mumbai players). The rules and regulations are as such:
Only 1 silver and 1 gold allowed per game.
You must have a captain and a wicket keeper.
Only 11 cards allowed (not including powerplays)
So, here’s how to play. First, you have a toss on who is going to bat/bowl.
Then, the bowler calls his card’s bowling number, while the batsman calls the batting number of the card on the TOP of his deck. If the bowling number is higher, then the batsman is OUT and no runs are scored. If the batting number is higher, then the batsman is NOT OUT and the number of runs indicated is scored. In the end of 2 innings, the one with more runs wins.
This card game can be bought in packs. There are only 5 cards per pack and each pack costs Rs15. It is available in all book stores and in chota mota shops also. At just 15 bucks a pack, it is easy to convince parents also to buy them. At any rate, you will be able to win a few games unlike the Indian Test squad!
