You spread out the cards on the floor, picture down. Take turns picking a card. If the card doesn't match any of the snakes that are on the floor then you just set it down to start a new snake. Each snake must have a head, tail and atleast one middle section. The more peices you get on the snake the better, but the initial object to the game is to form the most snakes and then move it over to you side of the floor(the snake pit). If there is a tie in the number of snakes, then the longest snake wins.
This game is appropriate for ages 3 and up. This is a fairly simple game. I would say most 7 yr old and older would find it boring unless playing with a younger child.
We have two sets, so we can make longer snakes.
Need to play this game on the floor.
Another benefit of his besides those mentioned in the other reviews...Hisss is a good physical game too, because you have to stre-e-e-tch your body to place the cards in position when the snakes get long.
Here's a tip - buy two sets and play with 100 cards instead of 50. This makes even longer snakes possible and also gives you two of every head and tail card! Just make plenty of floor space available!
My kids love this even more than UNO, and we have created a version we call "worms or two headed snakes" that they think is hysterical. They are 4 and 6 years old, and have been playing this for a year. They are learning how to be good sports, especially when someone else gets to collect the 22 card snake we all wanted to win. We all cheer for the person who gets creative and combines snakes. I can see this being good for the preschool set learning their colors as well.
If you are looking for a good quick simple and entertaining family game, HISSS would be a great choice. We love it : )
I brought this game along to a sleepover with my daughter's Girl Scout troop (a bunch of 10-year olds) and they couldn't get enough of this game!

Great for preschool-aged children just learning their colors. You can have multiple snakes "growing" at the same time which makes it so much more fun.Published 26 days ago by Libby VanB
