Lucky for us, Santa shops at Marbles. He picked up an a plasma nightlight as well as an addicting game called Oh Snap! Rather that allowing to describe the game, here’s Oh Snap!’s official description
Oh Snap! is a game of dueling decision-making that requires the hunger of a lion and the hands of a ninja brain surgeon. Make enough right choices and you will be crowned the snap grand master.
Make the wrong moves and SNAP! the board will speak, and the board makes no apologies. Pull back the SNAPping bar and place all of the discs on the other side. Release the tension on the bar and let it slide into place. Then, take turns removing one disc at a time.
If you remove a disc without the bar snapping forward you can keep the disc and points are added to your score. However, remove a disc and the bar lunges forward, discard the disc and gain no points.
Oh Snap! is a brutal game that never censors itself and doesn’t care how you feel about it. Are you and your family and friends up for the challenge?
Marbles created the game so I assume you can only get it in their stores or online. It says it’s recommended for the ages 8+ but our kids are four and had a blast. It’s fun for the adults, as we entertained my in-law’s as well as dual play game. Karen and I are always down for a quick game.
We don’t have a Marbles close to us which is a shame but their website is quality with a focus on brain development. Every product they offer a developmental description; something pretty progressive for a toy store. They even have a Brain Coach. Here’s what the coach thinks of Oh Snap!
Brain Health Expert Says:This game tests your decision making skills, governed by the frontal lobe, as you think creatively and logically to plan your next moves.
The Brain Coach Says:
The amount of suspense this game conjures in each player is palpable, infectious, and worth the price of the game alone. The awesome heirloom quality pieces are an added bonus!
