Snatch, by U.S. Games Systems, is a simple word game which is compact, quick to learn and fun! The game comes with 100 plastic tiles, and it is cleverly packaged in a simple tube (it sort of looks like a small, plastic packing tube).

Play is simple. Players lay all of the tiles face-down in the middle of the table. Then players take turns flipping the tiles over one at a time. When a player sees a word three letters or longer, they shout it out and snatch it from the center, setting it in front of them. Players can steal each other's words by adding a letter to them, so beware!

What's great about this game is that unlike many word games (Scrabble, for example), it's socially interactive the whole way through. No waiting for other players to take forever making their play.... it's fast-paced and fun.

This is a clever new word game which is simple yet incredibly addictive. My husband and I play this game almost every night. It is cleverly packaged and takes up little room, so we keep it accessible on the kitchen table and consequently, play often.

It has a simple premise and scoring method, is fun for 2 or more players, and keeps all players involved in the game. It takes little time to play one game, so it's a great option for after dinner. It only takes a game or two for new players to become very competitive with experienced players, and thus is great for mixed groups. Good spelling is a help, as is a good vocabulary, but even those skills are less important than being able to track the words and letters in play and keep possibilities in mind for when the right letter appears. My 17 y/o stepson can routinely beat us, and he's not an avaricious reader as we are, he just sees --and seizes-- the opportunities available.

The game is great fun for all ages and I highly reccomend it.

This is scrabble for the 21st century. The game is perfect in many ways: fast to learn, easy to play, quick pace of play, never the same game twice, and virtually unlimited number of players (I have seen 2 to 10). To make it even better, this isn't one of those games where people have to sit around and "wait their turn"; if you have a party and this game is out, people can come and go without having to sit there and constantly be engaged.

It really is fun - this is a new game in my family (and extended family) and it seems like we are all hooked! Congratulations to US Games for making a terrific product.

Another thing: the game is a little bit vague with the instructions -- probably intentionally so -- and this leads to people playing it a little bit differently in different places (house rules). That makes it even more fun!

I like this more than board based spelling games because it is more flexible in terms of the alteration you can make to your opponents words and I tend to win this game more. When I first received this several of the letters were cracked but the game was replaced and the new one had fewer defects. This would be better if the letters were more durable.

When human civilization is judged by our successors on this planet, Snatch and chess will be the only games remembered.

For some reason, in my set the pieces looked like they were broken or manufactured incorrectly. On my friend's set, the glass covered both sides of the letter tiles. But in my set, the glass only covers one side and you have to always stick the blue squares back into the glass casings. Very annoying, since they keep falling out every time.

This game is a fun variation on scrabble. It's great for younger players since the words don't have to be very long and you are not limited to the set arrangement of a scrabble baord.
