Oh Snap! You’ve never had so much fun being stressed out. This game uses a spring loaded tension bar to make collecting pieces from the game board trickier than meets the eye. If you cause the bar to “snap” forward, you lose your turn and don’t get points for the piece that you removed. The bigger blue pieces are worth the most points but pose the biggest risk. This game not only challenges how you work under pressure, but also your comfort with taking big risks. So, it’s pretty handy to have around at the office and for those usually boring hiring interviews. $34.99
