Wordstorm

Snippets is Made in the USA and breaks all the rules of traditional family word games. You get a snippet, which is a short series of letters (e.g., upp), and 60 seconds to come up with as many words as you can think of that contain it (think: supper, Tupperware, etc). They can be real dictionary words, proper names, acronyms, slang—even words that aren’t in English. Think fast. Literally any word is fair game. Once time is up, you get a point for any words that no one else got. There are three different decks, with snippets that are easier, tougher, and the most challenging. We suggest starting with the easiest deck to get the hang of it. The winner isn’t the person with the biggest vocabulary. It’s more likely to be the one with the greatest creativity. To win, you have to free associate quickly, like you would when you brainstorm. Maker Shaun Salzberg’s journey was unconventional. He first invented the game as a phone app, then he turned it into old-school, game-night entertainment. We’re happy he did. This fast-paced, brain-flexing activity is fun (and funny) for the whole family.

    Hello Grommet fans! I'm Shaun Salzberg, founder of The Master Theorem Games and designer of its flagship word game, Snippets! As a long time word nerd, I'm incredibly excited to share my creation with you today on the Grommet. I specifically designed Snippets to be different from most word games, with a unique "anything goes" rule that makes it a word game that even those who don't like words games will like.

    What a great idea. This would be perfect for my college age grandsons. Thinking stocking stuffer for "impossible to buy for" young men their ages. Thanks

    My family loves word games! Do you think a kid as young as 9 years old could play?

    @Laura that's great! I've actually seen children as young as 8 do pretty well with the game. If playing with kids that young, I'd recommend using cards from the Easy deck, and letting them play with other friends or siblings of a similar age. The age on the box says 13+ mostly because at that age children can start independently competing with adults.
