But if there were a crack of card games, it would be called “Spot it!” a game that is taking over the planet. I can’t pass a break room without hearing people shouting out random nouns.
Spot! is similar to Crazy Eights, but even simpler. Round cards printed with a variety of pictures are divided among players. A card is placed face-up in the center, and players must match a picture on their card to one on the face-up card. Whoever runs out of cards first wins.
It would be a good game to travel with since it crosses language barriers, but you wouldn’t get the enjoyment of hysterically shouting, which, like slap dominos, seems to be the best part.
