Product Description

Product Description

In the Old West, sly snake oil salesmen had the special talent of getting even the most skeptical customer to buy the most dubious product. In Snake Oil, that's exactly what the players get to do! One player draws a card and becomes the Customer while the other players each select two Word Cards from their hands to create a product to pitch to the Customer. Laughter erupts as each player attempts to persuade the Customer that their item is the best! The Customer picks their favorite item and that player is awarded the Customer Card. The player with the most Customer Cards wins!

From the Manufacturer

In the Old West, the sly snake oil salesman had a special talent. He could get the most skeptical customer to buy the most dubious products. Now it’s your turn.  It’s as easy as 1-2-3! Choose one player to be the first “Customer” and have that player pick a Customer Card. The other players quickly combine two Word Cards form their hand to create something for the Customer. Each player persuades the Customer that their item is the best. The Customer picks the one they like the most and that player wins the customer card!

We LOVE this game! We pack this whenever we go on a trip and I keep a new box in my gift-stash closet for anytime I get invited to a birthday party and I need to bring a gift. This is an amazing game in that it's appropriate to play with kids, grandparents, friends from church, etc. and, depending on your group, your conversation can slip into the gutter and become pee-your-pants funny!

This is also a great way to start out a weekend away with another couple or family because you'll wind up referring to your new inside-jokes and cracking each other up for the next couple of days.

Be careful with your ego, though. I'm in the world of sales & marketing and when we visited our friends who are both ER Drs., they absolutely wiped the floor with me... so much for my skill-set!

I bought this for my husband to play at his birthday party. It was the hit of the party. We are still laughing about some of the things our guests made up to try and sell to us during the game. This game is easy to understand and play. It says it is for ages 10 and up buy my 7-year-old has played it and was great at it. This game is for ALL ages, young and not-so-young! Get ready to laugh!!

We love this game. Our kids (7, 6, and 4) love the storytelling aspect. They often ask to play it, and easily understand the concept of creating a product to sell to the determined customer. It's a great time for us. We're avid boardgamers, so our kids have had experience playing a good deal of games. But even still, this game is well-suited for 6+.

This game is hilarious! There wasn't much of a dry-eye at the table when we played it because everyone was laughing so hard. If you enjoy playing games, I suggest Snake Oil!

We found this game a couple of years ago before it was available on amazon so it may be a slightly different version, but it is a fabulous game for people who like to get creative. It is fun seeing people come out of their shell as they try to pitch a winning product, and it is fun to try to get into the minds of the various professions you are asked to play (like a castaway, a teenager, a beggar, a secret admirer, a fashion model, etc.). You learn things about your family and friends--details you may not have known before, but also, who is creative, who is a good salesperson, who is motivated, who is brilliant, and who is dramatic. Our box says ages 13 and up, the new version says 10 and up but we have been playing since my daughter was 5 and she does very well with it.

I have to say, this is not my favorite game, but my son loves it. Putting silly combinations of words together and trying to sell them to someone is just a riot to him. I enjoy this game more just to see what he can come up with and how seriously he takes it. After several rounds, I feel totally drained. This is likely a blast at the beach with a group of children or family.
