The objective of this 2-8 player card game is to win all of the cards in the game. Pick a dealer who shuffles a standard 52 card deck of playing cards and deals out all the cards to the players. Players do not look at their cards but instead stack them in a face down pile on the table. The player left of the dealer goes first then play proceeds clockwise. On your turn, flip over the top card of your deck to a face up pile in front of yourself. Your turn is now over and the next player goes, flipping a card from their deck face up to a separate pile in front of them.
If any two top cards in any flipped-up piles on the table form a pair, any player may shout “Snap!”. The first player to do so collects the cards in both piles and adds them to the bottom of their deck. If two or more players shout “Snap!” at the same time and it can’t be determined who said “snap” first, then the cards in both piles go to the middle of the gameplay area and form the Snap Pot. If the top card from the Snap Pot pairs with any players’ top faceup card, anyone may shout “Snap Pot!” and receive all of the cards in the middle. If players tie on the snap pot, then their cards add to the pile.
When your draw deck runs out of cards. Flip your discard facedown, without shuffling it, into a new draw deck. If a player loses all of their cards, they are given one chance to win cards in the next opportunity to say Snap. If they do not say snap or someone says it before them, they are out of the game. If they form a Snap Pot on their next opportunity, they are given an additional chance.
The first player to collect all 52 cards is the winner.
