Have a go at our Moon Trumps [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] game online or pick up your own pack of Moon Trump cards  to play in places the internet can’t reach.

Of the five attributes on the cards, the values of the first four are (almost always) well established. However, in deciding what values to put on ‘potential for life’ we had to make our best guess.

Remember, you can play Moon Trumps any time on OpenLearn.
