Snip Snap Snorem is a classic shedding type game for 3 or more players. The game requires a standard 52 playing card deck, with Kings high and Aces low. The objective of Snip Snap Snorem is to be the first to lose all of your cards. This game is especially fun because of it’s whacky name!

Rank of Cards

The cards in each suit rank: K (high), Q, J, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, A.

The Ante

Each player puts one chip in the pot before each deal. If you don’t have chips, use coins, or anything you can set to be equal to one chip for gamesake.

Dealing and Setup:

Deal the cards one at a time clockwise, face down, beginning with the player on the left. All the cards are dealt, and some players may receive fewer cards than others. It is customary for each player with fewer cards to ante one additional chip.

Goal of the Game

The goal is to be the first player to get rid of all of their cards.

How To Play:

The player left of the dealer begins game by placing any card in the middle of the game area. Going clockwise, players try to complete the set. For example, if the first person played a 7 of Clubs, the next player would try to play a 7 of Spades, Diamonds, or Hearts. Players can play pairs or a three of a kind if they can. If a player cannot build on the set, their turn is passed. The player who lays down the fourth card begins the next set.

Players must say either Snip, Snap, or Snorem when building on a set (Snip for second card, Snap for third, and Snorem for fourth).

The first player to play all of their cards wins the game.
