Colorful fun for the whole family!,

This review is from: Gamewright Hisss Card Game (Toy)
We really enjoy this game! The cards are very colorful and thick (think durability), and the game is simple enough, but can have endless variations. The cards have either cute snake heads, or tails in a single color. The middle sections of the snake have two bright colors. You take turns each picking a card from the fanned pile, and try to build snakes by matching up the colors. The person who completes the snake (adding the last head or tail) wins it, and slides it to their "snake pit" while making a HISSS. There are two "rainbow" wild cards.
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 : )

Would you mind describing your "worms or two headed snakes" variation?
