Active Snap

Get ready for a jolly Christmas with Active Snap, the ultimate festive card game! It’s a twist on the classic and much-loved game of Snap. Here’s the deal: players take turns flipping cards, and when the same card appears twice, the quickest player to shout “snap!” collects all the cards. In Active Snap, winning a round means you get to have a hilarious and lively time. Each beautifully illustrated card features a colourful activity that everyone else must do when you win. Imagine jogging on the spot for 40 seconds, doing 20 sit-ups, nailing 40 squats without toppling, impressing everyone with a perfect plank, trying out some star jumps, or even having a spontaneous dance-off! Each card specifies the exercise duration or repetitions. The game goes on with multiple rounds, and the player left with no cards (and their dignity intact) becomes the ultimate champion. Active Snap isn’t just about winning; it’s about the laughs and enjoyment along the way. It’s a quick and easy game to pick up, making it perfect for players of all ages. Plus, its compact size means you can take the fun with you wherever – whether it’s to the park, school, the beach, or wherever your holiday adventures lead you.
