Snippets isn't your average, crabby word game! Award winning and parent-approved, Snippets is perfect for both families and gamers alike. With its unique "anything goes" rule, you don’t need a crazy vocabulary to compete, and unlike most word games, the "smartest" player doesn’t always win.

How to Play Snippets

Flip over a Snippets card and start a 60 second timer!

A "snippet" is a sequence of letters that can be found as a whole within words. For example, CRA can be found in CRAB but not in CORAL.

Write down as many words as you can with the snippet in it!

Anything goes! People names, place names, technical terms, slang, acronyms—even different forms of the same word—are all allowed!

Compare with friends and earn points for unique words.

Snatch up bonuses like longest word or fewest crossed words, or just go for broke and try get the most unique words!

Highest score wins the round!

The player who wins the round keeps the card, and the first player to win three rounds wins the game!
