Perfect for a party or family game night, Snippets is for 2-8 players and takes about 45 minutes. Unlike Scrabble, you don’t need a crazy vocabulary to win, unlike Scattergories there’s no ambiguity, and unlike most word games, the “smartest” player doesn’t always win.
A "snippet" is a sequence of letters that can be found as a whole
within words. For example, CRA can be found in
CRAB, SACRAMENTO, and SOCRATES but not in
RACECAR, CORAL, or MARCH.
Dictionary words, people names, place names, technical terms, slang, acronyms, hyphenations, non-english words, the snippet itself, and even different forms of the same word are all allowed!
Strategically aim for the longest word, fewest crossed words, and other special bonuses, or just go for broke and try get the most words!
With its unique "anything goes" rule, Snippets isn't like most word games, requiring more of a creative mind than a large vocabulary. And with only 60 seconds to think, everyone’s answers will be equally hilarious.
Snippets comes with 300 snippet cards, 4 answer pads, 4 pencils, a 60 second sand timer, and an instructions booklet. You can also download the optional, free Snippets app for both iPhone and Android, featuring a beautiful, interactive timer as a fun stand-in for the sand timer.
