What you need: Two to four players and a standard deck of playing cards.

How to play: The entire deck of cards is dealt out to each player in face down stacks. Players take turns taking the top card of their stack off and placing it face up in a pile in the middle of the table. If two cards placed consecutively are of the same number, the first player to call out "Snap!" and put his or her hand on top of the pile takes all of the cards that are in the middle pile. Play continues until players run out of cards.
The rules:
If two players call "Snap!" at the same time, whoever has his or her hand on the pile first takes the cards.

How to win: The player who wins the most cards at the end of the game is the winner.
