SNAP Review: Super Kitty Bug Slap
Designed by Sam Mitschke and Randy Scheunemann, find out why this quick-slapping game is one of Claire’s favorites.
How to Play
Each player gets a card representing “their kitty” for the round, with three specific attributes: Shape (Square/Round), Color (Orange/Purple), and Bug (Ladybug/Fly).
Dealer turns over one card at a time. All other players try to slap and take cards that match at one characteristic of their cat. Some cards match on multiple aspects, and some match only one (or none!)
When all cards have been dealt (and either slapped or removed from play), tally your score: 1 point for correctly matched cards, -2 points for incorrect cards.
Play as many rounds as there are players, so each player is the dealer once.
Claire: “I like it and am constantly trying to find someone to play it with me.”
A super-fast game, Super Kitty Bug Slap is great for kids (and adults) who love speed games. Playing can get ridiculous, for instance, if a player just slaps at everything. Especially in a 5-player game, this can be a winning strategy.
We absolutely love the super cute illustrations from Len Peralta (who we interviewed back in 2016).
Claire rates this “not a 5, probably a 4.99”, and will keep looking for more people to play it with her.
For about $6 on Amazon or at your local game store, you can’t beat it for value.
