Snaps is a very difficult (but very fun) party/bar game in which two people are in on the code and the rest must struggle to figure it out.

It starts with one person saying "snaps is the name of the game, the name of the game is snaps". That person is player one.

Player one then come up with a short name or phrase in there head that they proced to say in snaps code to the group (however player 2 is the only other person who knows the snap code). The code is as follows:

Vowels:
1 snap = A
2 snaps = E
3 snaps = I
4 snaps = O
5 snaps = U

Consanents:
With each consanent you say a short phrase starting with the letter in your code

L could be 'learn to keep up'
Y could be 'you got it yet?'

Player one: "snaps is the name of the game, the name of the game is snaps"

'Find out what I'm saying?'
Snap three times
'Get it yet'
'How about now?'
'Tough huh?'

'Can't figure it out?'
'Lets try again'
Snap 5 times
'Better luck next time'

Player two: Fight club!
