ABOUT THE GAME
Another fun game that children will enjoy playing!
Number of Players: 2 or more
Object of the Game: To win all the cards
Contents: Use two packs (40 cards)
Shuffle the packs and deal all the cards face down among the players. Each player places their cards in a pile, face down in front of them. One by one, players turn over their top card and place it face up in the centre making one pile. In doing this, the player must turn up the card away from themselves so that they do not see it sooner than anyone else. The player should also turn the card quickly enough so that the other players do not see the face of the card before they do.
When a turned up card matches the card immediately beneath it on the pile, or makes a pair (both cards will have the same colour band), "SNAP" is called. The player who calls "SNAP" first takes the centre pile of cards and places them face down under their own pile. That player then resumes the game by laying a turned up card back in the centre.
A player that uses up all their cards is out of the game. The last player left in the game is the winner. If no snaps occur, no one wins. The cards are reshuffled and the game starts again.
