Arabic Alphabet Snap
The Arabic alphabet card game that uses the letters in all their positions: beginning, middle, end and alone.
Three games in one:
- Flashcard games to teach the letters
- A snap game to build confidence with the letter joins
- A fast paced and competitive family game for those confident with the letters
The game comes with a ‘cheat-sheet’ which shows each letter in all its formations along with the English transliteration for the letter names.
112 game cards + 3 rule cards

How to play Snap
Goal: To win all of the cards.
- Deal all the cards evenly, face-down between the players.
- Players take turns to flip over their top card and place it letter-side-up onto a pile in the middle. They then say the letter on their card out loud.
- When someone plays a card that has the same letter as the card on show in the middle, all players race to say ‘Snap!’ and put their hand on the matching cards.
- The first hand on the pile wins the cards and adds them, face-down, to the bottom of their own cards.
- The game continues until one player wins all the cards.
Note: if one card shows a letter as if it is starting a word and another shows the same letter in any other form, this is a snap.
You might want to choose a forfeit for saying the wrong letter name or saying ‘Snap!’ at the wrong time.
