Big Top, inspired by the classic card game Fan Tan, is a quick and easy-to-learn card game in which players take the role of aspiring circus owners. The winner of the game will be the player who invests in the most popular circus acts and earns the most money by helping his fellow players when they call for certain circus acts to be played.
Beautifully illustrated by Alessandra Cimatoribus (Torres, San Marco), Big Top cards feature bits of fact about the charming world of the circus. Flavor text tells the story of the origin and growth of the circus in Europe and America into the cultural icon it has become today.
There is another card game by Reinhard Staupe published by Gamewright (and others): Barnyard Buddies (1996).
