How to Play Snap:

With the same Matching Card Games you can also play a game of Snap!
  1. Gather a group of players. Snap can be played with as few as two players and up to four players (or even more).
  2. Note the game does become more difficult to control when there are more than 4 players.
  3. Choose a deck of matching cards, shuffle it throughly.
  4. Deal the cards face down 1 at a time – starting with the person to the left of the dealer. Each person is given one card at a time, and it needs to be face-down. No peeking!
  5. Begin play with the player to the left of the dealer.
  6. Continue clockwise around the table, with each person repeating Step 5, until the first round is completed.
  7. Call “Snap” when two cards of the same rank appear face-up.
  8. Take the two piles with matching cards and add them to the bottom of the face-down pile.
  9. Resume play with the person to the left of the last person who flipped over a card.
  10. Create a snap pool if two players call “Snap” simultaneously. When this happens, take the two matching piles and combine them into one pile in the middle of the table.This is the snap pool.
  11. Move a player's face-up pile to the middle of the table for a snap pool if he/she incorrectly calls “Snap!” When a player calls “Snap!” at the wrong time, his/her face-up pile becomes a snap pool.
  12. Reuse the face-up pile of cards when all cards in the face-down pile are gone. Pick up your face-up pile of cards, turn it face-down without shuffling, and continue play.
  13. Eventually, as the game gets closer to the end, players with strong memories can memorize the order of their cards so that they can spend more time looking at their opponent's piles to call “Snap!”
  14. Remove players from the game as they run out of cards. 
    When a player is completely out of cards, he/she is out of the game.
The winner of the game is the player who wins all of the cards.
