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!!

I play a ton of board games. I play board games multiple times a week at board game shops and various meetup groups.

Out of everything I have played, no other game can break the ice and get everybody laughing quit like this one can. You can take it into a group of people where nobody knows each other and have everyone bonding and laughing, having a great time within 2 minutes. No other game has this power.

It's a very simple game with rules explainable in under a minute, so nobody in the group will be intimidated.

How does this compare to the ever popular Cards Against Humanity? It beats it in every aspect. Games that rely on shock value like CAH, will become stale within 5 plays. This game is never stale because it relies on the creativity of the player rather than an easy joke on a card. There is no such thing as a bad hand in this game, just poor imagination. The game can be as clean as you want it to be or as dirty as you want it to be! You can play this with your grandma as well as play it with a group of your gutter minded internet fed friends.

Everytime I play this game with new people, they always end up buying a copy for themselves. The people this appeals to ranges from people who love 8 hour sessions of Twilight Imperium, to people who never play any board games at all. That's how good this game is.

If you like Apples to Apples (or even Cards Against Humanity) you will enjoy playing Snake Oil. Same idea, except instead of letting the cards speak for themselves, it's up to you to sell your cards or 'product'. At first glance, the cards may seem boring, but some of the pitches that people come up with for their product are pretty hilarious. It's a great game for the entire family and can be kid friendly or adult only (depends on the pitches being made).

We've had this game a couple of years now, and my (now) 21 year old daughter loves it, and so does everyone she's able to get to try it. The products/gimmicks that are hawked at our table are rife with magical and mystical properties, such as a "tragedy bra," and one we've pitched twice now to a "Newlywed": Desire Butter...another pitched to the newlywed was "scream water."

As you can see, a few of the items created and pitched in this game can be of an adult nature. If you're easily embarrassed, or are playing with younger teenagers, it would be wise to state limitations before beginning the game to keep things at a level you're comfortable with, as things can quickly escalate from a Rated G to a Rated R (or higher) level in quite a hurry in some circumstances. (Maybe just remove the newlywed card from play!)

Much of winning this game is based on the ability of the players to think creatively/outside the box, as well as quickly. Every once in a while a combination is made that is obviously and clearly the winner to everyone at our table which causes loud groaning, laughter, and other players to discard their two cards for the round without even attempting to pitch, since it would be an obvious exercise in futility.

I purchased this game hoping to find something a little off-beat and fun that was unique (not available at waltonworld), and it was not a disappointment. My son and daughter-in-law are now huge fans, and daughter-in-law's sister now wants her own game.
