Snippets is the fast paced anything goes word game! Perfect for a party or family game night, Snippets has been recommended by Mensa Mind Games and has won the 2017 Parents' Choice Gold Award as well as the TillyWig Top Fun award. It has also made it onto Dr. Toy's list of 100 Best Games of 2017 as well as Edo's Game Review's Top 10 Board Games of 2017!
A "snippet" is a short sequence of letters that can be found as a whole within one or more words. For example, the snippet IPP can be found in the words SNIPPETS, QUIPPED, and HIPPIE but not in SHIPSHAPE, PIPE, or HOPPING.
Players have 60 seconds to write down as many words as they can think of that contain each round's snippet. Anything goes! Dictionary words, people names, place names, brand names, fictional things, technical terms, slang, acronyms, abbreviations, contractions, hyphenations, non-english words, the snippet itself, and even plurals and alternate verb tenses are all allowed!
When time's up, players compare answers, earning points for unique words and fun bonuses. The player with the most points wins the round and the first to 3 rounds wins the game!
With its unique "anything goes" rule, Snippets isn't like most word games, requiring more of a creative mind than a large vocabulary. And with only 60 seconds to think, everyone’s answers will be equally hilarious.

I bought this game through the kickstarter and it is our new go-to party game for all ages! Plays well with family but also ticks all the boxes for game nights with our 20-something aged crowd: relatively short play time (30ish minutes), high replay value, good for different skill levels, and still playable and fun with guests who have indulged in a beer or two.
My favorite thing about the game is that each round/snippet card is independent of the rest, so you can do very poorly one round and not completely damage your chances of winning. This, combined with the "bonuses" even out the playing field for players of different ages and/or skill levels.
My only minor criticism is that the box indicates a max of 8 players but only came with four paper pads. This is pretty nitpicky though and is easily remedied with extra paper. Really, I think the game is still playable with more than 8 people which is great when we have an especially large crowd over. Best with at least 3 people in my opinion.
Reminds me of Scattergories, which is one of my favorite games, but this makes you use your brain in a different way.
Good difficulty range too--- some of the easy ones let you come up with tons of words, while some of the hard ones are really hard!
Everyone I've played with has really enjoyed the game, definitely will stay in my repertoire!
If you love word games this is definitely the game for you!
My favorite part is that there are different levels of competitiveness you can decide to play. So in some groups you can play more relaxed (any word counts) or other times you can play super competitive and employ more rules.
