What It Is
Word Snag is a fast-paced game where you have the answers, but you have to be quick enough to snag them. The game comes with seven letter cubes, a cube cup, 30 category cards, and a score pad. To start, pick a category card and turn it over so all players can see the topic. Topics can be anything from "boys' names" to "flowers." Once the topic card is turned over, one player places the letter cubes in the cube cup, shakes them up, then rolls them out. All players then try to come up with words for the topic that start with the letters rolled. Once you call out a word, you grab the letter cube. For example, if the topic is "fruit," one player might shout out, "Peach!" and grab the "P" letter cube. Once all the letter cubes have been snagged, players add up their points (one point for each letter cube) and another round begins. The first player to reach 20 points wins.
