Explore. Collect. Win.

Pit the artworks from Tate's collection against each other in a
fast-paced game of Trumps!

Tate Trumps is a digital card game you play with Tate's
collection. Imagine if all the artworks in the gallery came to life
and had a fight. Could you pick which one would win? Take a look at
your favourite painting and try to gauge its mood. Is it menacing,
exhilarating or absurd? Have you ever started planning the ultimate
home gallery? Will you pick works which are famous or which would fit
in your living room?

Play at home in "Anywhere" mode, choosing artworks from a selection from Tate's collection, displayed on the virtual gallery wall. Or
play at Tate Modern itself, picking your collection from the paintings
on display in the London gallery. You can play on your own or with
your friends or family. (Each player requires their own iOS device).

Once you've played, going to a gallery will never feel the same again.

30 mins of fun then total disappointment

We spent a brilliant half hour running round the gallery putting together our set of images. All sat down in the cafe to play the 'battle' part of the game over a coffee and a cake when two out of three apps crashed. The flaky wireless network in the gallery may not have helped. Whatever it was, it ruined the first part of our staff day. Great idea, crappy tech. Either fix it or remove it from the App Store.

Reading is hard!

Novel app, does what it sets out to do well.

Reading other reviews I'm frankly ashamed to share the same country as some of the other reviewers of this app, apparently literacy problems are more common than I had feared in the UK...

Amazing way to see Tate's collection

I took this app with me when I visited Tate Modern with my nephew.
It was a great way to help him engage and understand some of the works on display. Well worth it if your visiting.

Brilliant job Tate and Bloomberg!
