Volcano Top Trumps: the Online Game

VTT

After some months of testing and refining, a free-t0-use online version of Volcanoes Top Trumps has been launched by Winning Moves. This should greatly extend the reach of Volcanoes Top Trumps – which is a fun and educational game about volcanoes that has spun off from the NERC ESRC funded project ‘STREVA‘ – Strengthening Resilience in Volcanic Areas. Why not play the online game, and then let us know what you think of it!

Volcanoes Top Trumps was created by scientists at the University of East Anglia, the University of Plymouth and the University of Oxford.

David Pyle is a volcanologist, and Professor of Earth Sciences at the University of Oxford. His first encounter with volcanoes was at the age of 7, when he visited Villarrica, Chile, shortly after an eruption. David studied geological sciences at the University of Cambridge, and later completed a PhD on the 'older' eruptions of Santorini, Greece. After a short post-doc at the California Institute of Technology, David returned to a lectureship in Cambridge. In 2006, he moved to his current post in Oxford. David tweets at @davidmpyle

  1. Hey David, great game! I certainly enjoyed playing it. Can I ask how much time did you spend making it? And how many people did work on it?

    Cheers!

    • Hi Olly – sorry that I missed your message! A team of 5 or 6 of us spent about 12 months (part time) planning and designing the concept, the design and pulling together the content,
