Snatch - A Fast Paced Word Game

Guest Author - Megan Romer

Snatch, by U.S. Games Systems, is a simple word game which is compact, quick to learn and fun! The game comes with 100 plastic tiles, and it is cleverly packaged in a simple tube (it sort of looks like a small, plastic packing tube).

Play is simple. Players lay all of the tiles face-down in the middle of the table. Then players take turns flipping the tiles over one at a time. When a player sees a word three letters or longer, they shout it out and snatch it from the center, setting it in front of them. Play continues. If a player sees a way to add a letter to any existing word at any time (even if it's another player's word), they may snatch it away from the other player.

The game continues until all of the letters are flipped over. Players add up their points. Each three-letter word equals one point, and each additional letter gets one more point. Highest score wins!

What's great about this game is that unlike many word games, it's socially interactive the whole way through. No waiting for other players to take forever making their play.... it's fast-paced and fun.
