Cable Trumps 

By on

Cable TrumpsBored at work and would rather be playing trump card game with your son. The next best thing (or not) maybe the online cable trump card game from AEI Cables.

Not quite sure why they made this or if anyone will use it (I played one game), but here is the link anyhow:

As a side note, if you browse their data sheets you can also view interactive 3D cable models (or go directly to http://www.aeicables.co.uk/howitsmade/howitsmade.asp).
