How to Play Snippets Junior

Snippets Junior is an expansion pack for Snippets with 100 extra cards that are ideal for young wordsmiths.

It plays the same way as regular Snippets with one difference: rounds are 2 minutes instead of 1 minute long. For the best experience, we recommend playing through the deck in order, starting with the A card.

If you don’t have the full Snippets game, simply hand out some paper and pencils, and keep time with the free Snippets Junior smartphone app or any available 2-minute timer. See below for the full Snippets instructions.

Depending on the ages of the children playing and the size of the group, you can also try one or more of these variations to make the game more fun and manageable:

With 1 - 2 children, try the full game! Just help them with spelling and scoring as needed.

With 3 - 5 children, we suggest not having them compare answers at all. Players can just get 1 point for each word they write down.

With 6+ children, try leave out writing and scoring completely. Simply hold up a Snippet and have them shout out words for it!
