A Game Called Snap !!

Hi there, well it's the Summer Holidays for lots of those mischievous smaller people out there...  they say breaking up is hard to do, but in the school holidays I bet it's not that hard !!!  So to stop boredom setting in I decided to give you all something to do...  that is if you want something to do...

I proudly present to you my version of the classic card game Snap.  Of course this being a crafty blog you have to make it for yourself, but it's not that hard to do.  In the download I have supplied two versions of the game, an Animal Snap set made up of some of your favourite images I have drawn in the past, and a Space Snap set, made up of  some of the more futuristic images I have designed.  I have also included a Snap Card Backing Paper, and a set of rules for the Snap game in case you don't know them.

If you are lucky enough to have a printer that will take thicker card then you can print the backing paper on one side and then turn the card over and print the snap cards on the other side.  You need a nice thickness of card, 200gsm plus, but if your printer can't do this you can always use thinner card and stick the front and the back together to make it thicker.

In snap you use 52 cards in a set, and because I can't count, and put 8 images on each page, you will need to print out the card set at least six times, which will give you 48 cards, when you have cut them all out.  You can of course do more or less.

If you want a harder game, try combining the Animal and Space sets together...  it's up to you.  I really hope you have fun with these...  I know they are a little different, but it will be nice to get your children or grandchildren involved with this freebie.

hugs to you all...
