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.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 different ways of playing the game – and you can make up your own rules, as long as everyone playing agrees to them! – but the aim is simple: you take it in turns to test each other on the facts, and/or image, and if you know the facts and can name the Sports Hero, you win the card(s).There are seven gripping facts for each sportsperson: six range in difficulty from green, easiest, to red, most difficult. If you choose, you can use the seventh, the Joker Fact, to overrule them all!
