Buzz, Hiss, SNAP!
An Australian Insect & Reptile Snap Game
Meet thirteen native Australian insects and reptiles in this iconic family game by bestselling illustrator Megan McKean.
You know the redback spider but have you met the golden-tailed gecko? There are thirteen native Australian insects and reptiles to play with in Megan McKean’s new game Buzz, Hiss, SNAP!
Other animals include the blue-tongue lizard, frill-neck lizard, Australian tiger moth, Christmas beetle, tiger snake, blue-banded bee, tree goanna, corroboree frog, bulloak jewel butterfly, green tree python and funnel-web spider.
With four different groups of animals, Snap! by Megan McKean brings together a native lineup of animals big and small. Big cards for little hands make this series extra fun! Up for a challenge? Each game in the series can be joined together to form a larger playing deck.
How to play: shuffle the cards and divide them equally between the players. Each player should keep their cards face down. Taking it in turns, each player flips over their top card, placing it into a pile in the middle. When the top two cards on the pile match, the first player to say BUZZ, HISS, SNAP! wins all the cards in the pile. Good luck! It’s a real tongue twister. The winner is the first player to collect all the cards.
