How to Play
- Distribute cards evenly between the players
- Take turns flipping over the cards, if a player sees two cards that when added together make 5 or 10, the must quickly cover the two cards and say “SNAP” and they take the pair. Ex. 2 and 8, 5 and 5 etc.
- Continue taking turns flipping cards until there are no more cards or combinations.
- The person with the most pairs wins!
- Alternatively, players can have all cards face up and find pairs that way.
- Note: cards that have been flipped stay facing up and you can use them to also make pairs with any future cards that are flipped, or by themselves.
