Spot it! is the addictive, feverishly fun matching game for every generation. The first thing to know about Spot it! is that there is always one, and only one, matching symbol between any two cards. Got it? Now all you need is a sharp eye and a quick hand to play all five party games packed into the grab 'n' go tin. Including up to eight players, Spot it! is a cinch to learn, plays fast, and is irresistibly fun for all ages!
Spot it! is played with 55 circular cards, each decorated with eight symbols varying in size and orientation. There are more than 50 symbols in all, including random yet universal images of hearts, snowflakes, dragons, and lightning bolts, and even words such as Stop and OK. The aim of the game is to be the first to spot the one symbol in common between two or more cards. Don’t be fooled! It's not as simple as it sounds. A match is easily hidden in the array, especially with the pressure of racing frantically against your opponents. The cards change with every match made, so you have to stay focused to keep up. Every match will fuel your fire and agonizing over getting beat to the punch by a faster player only adds to the overall excitement.
Spot it! packs unlimited play potential as you can mix it up with multiple games. The five individual mini-games included in the game booklet have separate rules and objectives. Choose from such contests as The Tower, The Well, Hot Potato, The Poisoned Gift, or Triplet, and play them in any order. In some, players try to collect cards, in others, they race to get ride of cards. For example, in The Tower, each player is handed a card and the remaining stack of cards is placed in the middle of the table. On the count of three, players look at their own cards and the top card of the middle stack for a matching symbol. When someone spots a match, he calls out the symbol and grabs the middle card, and puts it on top of his old card. Now everyone has to look at the new middle card for a match and try to win cards until the middle stack is gone. At the end, the player with the most cards wins. For competitive players ready for a Spot it! showdown, there’s even a tournament point system included in the booklet.
