A New Game to Add to Our Collection

My best friend got me two new games for my birthday. A group of us played one of the games tonight: Snatch It.

Here's how it works:

  1. You start with a bunch of Scrabble-like tiles and turn them face down in a central pile.
  2. Each player takes a turn flipping over a tile.
  3. When someone can make a word with at least three tiles, s/he says the word, grabs the tiles, and sets up the word in front of him/her.
  4. At any time, a player can grab one of the tiles from the middle and use it to make a new word using someone else's words (hence the "snatch it" title).
We played two rounds and had a pretty fun time. I'm always on the lookout for new games...

You would love Bananagrams!!! Same idea - you have tiles all face down but each player gets a set number of tiles to themselves. The rest stay in the middle. Then you flip all your tiles over and make your own words cross-word style. When all your tiles are used up, you say "peel" and everyone grabs a letter from the center. This goes on until someone uses all available tiles. It's crazy fun!
