Product Description

When you're looking for a brand that stands out from the rest look no further. With a passion for quality and creativity you can rest easy knowing the quality we manufacture.

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!

I really like this game. If you get the right mix of people together that are imaginative, humorous and creative it provides non-stop laughter. You play with boring people and it's going to be a boring game that you probably won't wanna play again...use your discretion.

The game can be clean and family-friendly or crude and adult themed...it's flexible and the people playing set the overall theme.

But...

I really have to call out Out of The Box Publishing on their new packaging introduced in 2014.

Instead of the standard game box with a lid that lifts off, you get a top flap with side wings and a locking tab. The black tray is meant to slide out but is a struggle to get back in and the cardboard quality is the kind you take a children's toy out of then dispose of.

This is just a really questionable design decision and the publisher should be ashamed of themselves.

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!

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+.

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!!

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 played this game with family earlier this summer and had a blast. It's a great family game that requires imagination and humor.

I bought this game at a local toy store, but had to share my enthusiasm for it on Amazon. This game is similar in some ways to Apples to Apples. Every player is dealt 5-6 cards. The "Buyer" rotates from player to player each round. The buyer receives an "identity" from the card pile (e.g., gangster, lifeguard, nun, etc.). Then each player must choose two cards from their hand to creat some sort of item that the buyer would want to buy. Each player then has about a minute to describe their product and convince that buyer to choose their item. It is hilarious. The best part is that it is appropriate for all ages. Children have a natural ability to use their imaginations and can be great at sales. My father (who is 80), pretty much refuses to play any board games or family games. Even he LOVES this game. Each round moves quickly, so you can play for 15 minutes or a couple of hours. You can make up or change the rules to best suit your needs. Because this game does not require a board, or even visual contact with other players, it is perfect for long road trips in the car. Adults can kids can both enjoy the game. It's fun at parties, too.
