'SPOOKS' A spooky 'Snap' card game

Waddington's 'SPOOKS' spine chilling card game [as it says on the box] is a nice take on the classic card game 'SNAP' in which the players have a share of cards that are face down, the players each take a turn and place a card on the table face up and continue to untill another card with the same picture is revealed on the pile, the first player to shout "SNAP' wins those cards and then the game continues again untill a player wins all cards or no matches can be made. Anyway I'm sure a lot of you knew that already. 'SPOOKS' is basically the same game except that the game has a spooky theme of a fold out board with Vampire with bat wings and creepy castle in the background for the cards to be placed upon, and the wonderful spooky cards featuring cartoon monsters - Mr.Ghost, Mr.Hyde, Mrs.Vampire, Mrs.Gorgon, Mrs.Witch, Wolfman, Mr.Vampire, The Mummy, King Kong, Mr.Frankenstein, and Dr.Jekyll. Instead of the winning players shouting "SNAP" in this game they blow a whistle which I think is more fun. Nice game with ghoul...I mean cool graphics.
