About

Lucy's early sketches for the limited edition deck

Schnap! the easy-to-play, intense party game, is back for its second edition – this time designed by a pro tattoo artist.

Think Uno, meets drinking, meets tattoo artists. Schnap! is where art meets drinking games. And as before, the rules are simple: get your mates round, crack the deck open and match the cards at high-speed to hand out boozy forfeits to each other. 

The limited edition deck, in play

We're looking for backers to help fund our first limited edition deck, designed in collaboration with the UK tattooist and illustrator @LucyBlueTattoo. It's dripping in sex appeal and sass. Tried and tested, we know the game works, and works well. There's been a lot of refinement along the way, but our next steps are all about making it drop dead gorgeous to look at.


Let's talk about the original

"Made my Freshers’ Week both memorable and hard to remember!!!" - Sam W.

"Best drinking game I've played, we barely made it out." - Jake A.

We released the original in September, and straight away it proved itself to be the ultimate party icebreaker on university campuses nationwide. With Schnap!, there's no more googling the rules to Ring of Fire, and no more searching high and low for Beer Pong balls. You've got everything you need in one deck, and it's easy-to-learn, fast and competitive. 

You can play it anywhere too – at home, in bars, or even on trains or planes whilst travelling. To discover more about the game, hop over to our website or Instagram

How to play

If you've ever played traditional snap before, the rules might be pretty familiar.

  • All the cards are dealt out, face down.
  • Going clockwise, each player flips over their top card and lays it, face up, in the centre of the table.
  • When the top two cards match, it's a race to slap the deck and shout 'Schnap!' first.
  • The first person to call out a matching pair of cards gets to delegate the card's forfeit to another player e.g. 'Sink Your Drink' or do a 'Double Shot'. 
  • The person who drinks, picks up the pile, and the game begins again.
  • Last to get rid of all their cards loses, AND is probably the most drunk.

Keep going until the pizza arrives, or it's time to call the taxi. 

The game's rules

Where did the idea come from?

It came to be after my brother-in-law and I realised that my snap-based fitness game 'Active Snap' would be great at parties. I made a prototype to test at my mate's stag do, and minutes in, knew I was on to something great. Everyone that played it was on edge and it's so competitive and intense. You just wanted to get out as fast as you could, without being hit by some of the big forfeits! 

The prototype, tested at Tom's stag!

After teaming up with Amy, a professional graphic designer and self-confessed pisshead – I knew I'd found the perfect partnership to bring Schnap! to life. We developed the game to what it is now and built a product that we both love.

We placed an order for 500 decks, and built the website and social media channels from scratch. Wanting to make the biggest impact, we headed out on foot to campuses across the country, selling 100 packs in the first ten days. It's allowed the product to be fully tested by its target market, and the Instagram stories and videos that have been flooding in are hilarious! You can check these out at @schnapgame

The original Schnap! deck

The Limited Edition bit

After it's initial success, we're now keen to get Schnap! out there in bigger numbers. It bucks market trends (think complicated rules and crap graphics), and has the simplicity and intensity that every good game needs. The future dream is themed decks and quirky collaborations, and with other challenges, games and artists to build a brand that just keeps on evolving.

With this in mind, we got in touch with Leeds-based tattooist and illustrator Lucy Hawkins (@LucyBlueTattoo) to create our first limited edition deck. She's known on Instagram for her sassy themes and subtle details, and we were totally up for creating a gorgeous game based around her tattoo style. Stay updated by following our progress and new card illustrations over on our Instagram, @schnapgame.

A sneak peak at the new deck's cards

The box contains 56 cards – 48 regular cards, 5 specials, 2 blanks and a rule card. The cards are 63x88mm (the size of a standard poker deck) and professionally printed by Cartamundi, a world-leading manufacturer of games.

The regular cards are simple but effective. 

  • 'One/Two/Three/Four Fingers' – down this amount of your drink.
  • 'Sink Your Drink' – get it all down in one.
  • 'Single Shot/Double Shot' – take a shot.
  • 'Down a Dirty Pint' – a drink made from everyone else's alcohol.
  • 'Everyone Down It!' – everyone must finish their drinks.

This edition's box contains five 'special' black cards including...

  • 'Time Out W*nker' – sit out for five minutes and avoid any forfeits.
  • 'Reverse Forfeit' – turn a forfeit back onto the player giving it out.
  • 'Tattoo Off' – get the pens out, it's time to turn creative. Two people to draw a tattoo on each other, the worst artist does a shot.
  • 'Glass of Water' – tried and tested, this one's needed.
  • 'Tattoo Time' – tattoo a player of your choice. Your victim has to keep the designs on all night though!

Risks and challenges

If we hit our target, we set the wheels in motion and get to produce the game, having covered our manufacturing costs. If we fail to reach our goal, you won't be charged and you can sleep tight at night, knowing you're no worse off.

This might be our first Kickstarter, but it's not our first card game. With the original deck having already been launched successfully, we have the materials and manufacturers lined up for the second – tried and tested to ensure quality.

We know Schnap! works, and works well – so we're trying something completely new. Limited edition artist runs is completely unheard of in this sector. Being unchartered territory, we're running a Kickstarter to do it, risk-free for both us and you.
