The objective of Sneaky Cards is to be the first player to get rid of all of your cards.

Set Up

  • Shuffle the cards and deal them out to the players. The game does not specify how many cards that each player should get. Therefore the players should decide how many cards to give each player.

How to Play Sneaky Cards

Sneaky Cards is an unique game as there are no turns and no set location to play it. The game can take multiple days to complete as you will play it over the course of your normal day. Each player has a set of cards that require them to perform certain tasks. Players need to perform these tasks and then give the card to the person/people you perform the task with/for.

Completing a card
After purchasing a coffee for someone, you will give them this card.

Each card has a unique code on it. When you first purchase the game you can register the cards. You can then track where the cards move as the people you give them to give them to other people.

The first player to complete all of their cards and give them to another player wins the game.
