The goal of this game is to build the most reptiles from a stack of severed snake cards (some heads, some tails, and some middles). Here's how it works: the whole pile of tiles are fanned out on the floor and players take turns picking a card and trying to match it to a piece with the same color. If there's no match available, they can start a new snake. The player with the most snakes in the snake pit when the game ends, wins. This game, a great stocking stuffer, gets kids practicing pattern recognition, color matching, thinking ahead, and logic. (Gamewright, 2-5 players, $9.99)
