Toppo is a fun, fast card game, a little like Snap, except players have to match three cards instead of one.
A three-card layout is placed on the table and all players act at once, putting out three cards from their own deck until they make a match. This is possible because the cards have simple coloured symbols. Only the symbol shape or colour need to be matched but this has to be done with all three cards. The matching cards become the new target cards. There are penalties for incorrect matches and the first player to get rid of all their cards is the winner.
Recognising a match isn't easy, especially as the target is always changing, and younger players will have an advantage because they can do this more quickly than adults.
GKG Comment: We took a copy of this on holiday to try out and ended up playing it at least once every evening for a week. We were intending to leave it behind as a gift for the holiday cottage (owned by a friend of ours), but we couldn't part with it and took it back home instead!
