History Heroes’ Sports Heroes card game: Our pack of Sports Heroes contains individual cards of History Heroes’ forty greatest Sports Heroes. Each card is fantastically illustrated to represent the individual sportsperson and shows their dates, their flag of birthplace and seven gripping facts about them, including a joker fact about each Sports Hero to surprise and/or entertain
Our Sports Heroes start with the first century BCE Athenian, Pheidippides, said to be the first person to run the marathon. We then charge forwards with heroes like Captain Webb, WG Grace, de Coubertin, who helped devise the modern Olympics, Suzanne Lenglen, Jesse Owens, Sonia Henie, Don Bradman, Juan Fangio, Tanni Grey-Thompson and many more. Our heroes in Sports Heroes come from a range of sports, such as athletics, boxing, football, golf, F1 racing, tennis, rugby, baseball, cricket, basketball, gymnastics, ice skating and squash.
There are many ways to play History Heroes’ Sports Heroes game and you can make up your own rules as long as everyone playing agrees to them! The aim is simple: you win the game by winning the cards and you win the cards by guessing/knowing the facts. You can use the images as clues and you can use the different levels of facts to make it as easy or as hard as you want to play the game. You can also play the game at different levels within the game so that all ages and stages can play together. The green facts are the easiest working down to the red facts, the most difficult. You can, of course, use the joker fact at the bottom, too, to overrule them all!
