The Party Game of Moos, Meows and More
Get ready for laughter as your friends and family suddenly start sounding like they were born in a barn! In Snorta, each player is randomly assigned a typical farm animal, hides their animal, and then the fun begins! As cards are quickly flipped over, tongue-tied players stumble and stutter to blurt out the sounds of the other players' secret animals. It's a barnyard battle that will have everyone howling with laughter!
Oink! Moo! Baa! Woof! This just might be the craziest party game you ever play! Tension builds as players take turns to flip over cards, but as soon as a matching pair of cards is revealed absolute chaos ensues. Players start squawking all kinds of animal sounds as they struggle to remember what their opponent's hidden animal is! Behind all of this madness is a terrific game that not only reinforces matching and memory skills, but also teaches the importance of paying attention!

In Snorta each player is given a plastic farm animal (cute cartoonishly-designed ones by John Kovalic). In a "sound-off" everyone makes their animal's sound, then hides it in their barn. All the animal cards are passed out. Each player quickly flips over cards into a face-up pile in front of them, going around the circle. When a card placed down matches one of the cards already on the table, those two players rush to say the animal sound of the other player. (You don't make the noise of the animal ON the card.) It's hard to remember everyone's animal under pressure, so this speed and memory game is lively and funny to play. If you say the other player's sound first, you give them all the cards you've flipped onto the table in front of you. They then add them to the bottom of their hand. The first person to get all the cards out of their hand is the winner.
"Snorta is a great little family game. In Snorta, every player plays an animal and demonstrates at the beginning of the game how your animal will sound like throughout the game. This is important because during the game, people will have to make your animal sound exactly as you did...I recommend Sorta without hesitation if you have a large group of people. It is a great party game.." Read the entire review by Leo Teixeira of BoardGameGeek here.

"Overall, I found Snorta to be a very fun game. Don’t buy the game to find ground-breaking mechanics or clever game play. Play the game because it’s an eight player game (not too many of those nowadays) that is just downright FUN. You’ll have people thanking you for the experience and begging to play again (perhaps too many times). Snorta is a great deal for its inexpensive price and probably should be added to anyone’s collection who has any contact with kids or exuberant, fun-loving adults."
