"If you like crazy quick raucous fun with an absurd twist, you owe it to yourself to back SNAFU on Kickstarter."  Bayard Catron - Reviewer


SNAFU is a real time cooperative party game. Inspired by Pit, you're trading cards to collect sets; however, you're working as a team to beat the clock and each player is a character. One player may have to play like they have T-Rex arms, another may have to speak like a robot, and another may have to play with their cards on their forehead. It plays in sixty seconds, and is absolutely hilarious.

The stars represent the difficulty!
The stars represent the difficulty!

SNAFU is a cooperative set matching game where players have to stay in character while working together in an effort to match every set within the 60 second timer. Each player has a hand of four cards; players are trading with one another, while maintaining character, to obtain a four of a kind to match one of the suits that has been revealed for the round.  If all the revealed suits have a four of a kind played on them by the end of the round, the players win!  SNAFU plays 3-7 players, or up to 14 if you combine it with another copy of the game.  

You can also watch a video explanation of the game here!

SNAFU is being published by the Zafty team which consists of Frank Alberts, Ross Nunez, David Thomas, and Russell Ng.  While all four are game designers, they also bring a lot of other unique skills to the table. Ross, and David are full time graphic artists; Russell is a jack of all trades who is in his final semester of obtaining his Computer Science degree from Hunter College, and Frank is an industry professional with experience on shipping and fulfilling over 20 Kickstarters!  Frank also has a game with Indie Board and Card slated to come out next year.  

This expansion will contain characters that transform SNAFU into (more of) a drinking game!

Kickstarter finances will go directly towards the manufacturing and shipping of the game! We have been working tirelessly with our manufacturer to get the best quality game at the best rate possible, and it is only possible with your support!
