Quick Take: It’s like Slap Jack, except so much better. I played Egyptian Rat Slap and other speed games compulsively while I was in high school, this is a very fun kid variation. Usually I don't like to have to use a specialty deck when a regular deck of cards would suffice but Slamwich has a fun and cute theme and is well worth the buy.


How to Play: Deal of even amounts of cards to all players, whoever ends up with all the cards at the end is the winner. You win cards by slapping your hand down on the stack of cards first whenever you see two matching cards played in a row or if you see two matching cards played with just one other card in the middle (a sandwich of cards so to speak). There are also Thief cards and Muncher cards that have special properties. It’s a manageable number of rules for young kids to keep track of.


Variations: Apparently you can add other things to slap down on, like if bacon and eggs are played in sequence, or if the cards make a BLT or if peanut butter and jelly are played one after another.
