Uno meets Snap!
This is a fantastic little game, which is also easy to carry around for moments of boredom with friends. Having been introduced to this in France a few years ago, it's great to see it available in England now (and with English instructions!)
I'm purchasing a set now for the youth groups I run as it's been a total hit with various ages from 11 - 19 years old, and it's about time they got their own version rather than use mine!
My family and friends who've played this game mostly all fall in love with it (so guess what they got for Christmas or birthdays!)
If you're playing for the first time be aware it's 'one of those games' you need to play to really grasp - bear with it, it's well worth the initial confusion! The more you play, the faster you can get. Also fun when you're at the end of a night and too tired to concentrate properly - you will laugh lots, guaranteed. Adding the expansion once you're used to game play is also a must.
Be warned... It may look like you're about to win the game, but your fortune can change in an instant!
