How Do You Play the Snaps Game?

Snaps is a game best played by a group of people. One person leaves the room while the rest of the group picks a celebrity or a character the celebrity has played. When the person returns, they attempt to guess the name using clues given by the group. Trust us, this is a silly one for your next house party.

When the person returns to the room, the group will make an announcement. If they say “Snaps is the name of the game,” they’ve chosen a celebrity name. If they say “Snaps may be the name of the game,” they’ve chosen the common name of a celebrity who goes by an alternate or stage name. If they say “Snaps isn’t the name of the game,” they’ve chosen a character whom a celebrity has played.

A member of the group then says a phrase that begins with the first letter in the name. The group then does a series of snaps for each vowel in the name, snapping one time for A, two for E, three for I, four for O and five for U. When consonants in the name are reached, another phrase beginning with that letter is made up. For example, if the name chosen was Rihanna, when the letter H is reached, a member of the group might say “Have you figured it out?”
