Word Game Description:
The Snatch Game:
Place the letter tiles face down in the play area. Players
take turns flipping over a tile until a word of 3 or more letters can be
formed. It need not be your turn -- as soon as you spot a word,
call it out, take the letters, and place the word face up in front of
you. But beware -- the word you make may not be yours for long!
Words can be formed in two ways: by using 3 or more letters from the
center OR by adding one or more letters to an existing word.
Players may SNATCH any by changing it with the addition of one or
more letters. So your CAT may become someone else's CART, which
could then be snatched as TRACK seconds later. You must use all
the letters of the word you are snatching. Continue until all 100
tiles have been flipped over and no more new words can be formed.
