SNAP Review – Animal Upon Animal Junior

Anitra and Elliot review this “My Very First” game. It’s a perfect first game for very young children – but even your “big kids” may still enjoy it.

Watch the video or read the transcript for this SNAP review.


You can never replace playing games in person, but Sovranti is the next best thing. It’s 3D, with rules-enforcement and context highlighting/snapping (ie. you don’t have to drag components around on the screen or worry about timing).

Sovranti was designed with mobile users in mind and be something that’s easy to get started.

Currently in development: Lockup (from Thunderworks Games) and BarBEARian Battlegrounds (Greenbrier Games)… and also The Night Cage (Smirk & Dagger) and Mission Catastrophe (Cardboard Alchemy)!

How do you get started?

Go to Sovranti.com/install

The basic, free level (Silver) gives you access to 3-4 games which rotate each month.

The Gold membership lets you play any games in the system – as long as everyone else at the table has at least a Gold membership.

Platinum membership lets you bring Silver users into any game you feel like playing.

What’s the red crown? It’s the indication that you’re the host of a game.

Special Offer!

Get 60 days of Platinum membership for free (seriously free, no credit card required) when you sign up using code FAMILYGAMERS.
