He who hesitates is lost in this fact-action card game! Be the first one to notice a match and yell “Snap!” to win all the cards – and the game!
Have a bigger pile of cards than any other player!
How to Deal
Shuffle a standard playing deck, then deal out all the cards. Some players will have more cards than others, but that’s ok.
How to Play
Each player places their pile of cards, face down, in front of them. One by one, starting with the player to the dealer’s left, players turn over the top card from their pile and place it next to their stack of cards.
Pay close attention as players start to turn over their cards. If you see a card get turned over that matches another card already facing up, yell, “SNAP!” If you’re the first one to notice and say “Snap!” then you get to keep both piles of face-up cards and add them to your stack.
Should you and another player happen to yell “Snap!” at the same time, the two piles of face-up cards get put into the middle and become the “Snap Pot”. Play resumes as before, with each player one-by-one turning over a card from their draw stack.
If you notice a card that matches the face-up card on top of the Snap Pot, yell “Snap!” and you win all the cards in the pot.
The game goes on like this until one player ends up with all the cards.
How to Win
Be faster than anyone else to yell “Snap!” when you see a match and collect the entire deck of cards!
