Checkers never looked so sexy.

Where do the noses go?
i need this game.
In regard to zachary’s comment, four up from mine, there is something gleefully goofy about the phrase, “Sixteen boxes of Snifty Snakes.” If there was a band by that name, I would buy all their music, no matter how bad it might be.
Last week I bought a stack of sixteen snifty snakes games for twenty something bucks at a vancouver thrift store and brought them back to seattle, laughed all the way home… My christmas shopping is done!!
I Love that the masks come complete with eyebrows!
What if someone has a cold? Gross
Wow, I’m moving to Canada!
They had to find something to do all summer and this is
just as exciting as watching water freeze.
Made me think of ‘Clockwork Orange’.
I have a sinus headache now.
The little guy is so cute! Loved it!
proof that Bootsy Colins is so much cooler than any white person
I dunno, looks like some homemade crap mom put together using old catheters and cheap Groucho Marx glasses. She’s crafty.
…and I thought the only good thing to come out of Canada was Sarah McLachlan.
Isn’t this the lost scene from “A Clockwork Orange”?
Not one of Canada’s greatest exports.
We bought this game as a gag from a store in the Gastown area of Vancouver in about 1972. It stayed on a shelf until 1979 when we showed it to some new friends.
For some strange reason (maybe it was the volume of beer and wine that we consumed), these new friends got ovetthe absurdity and have remained our friends.
Since then this group expanded to 12 husbands and wives, 14 children, one son in law and one grandchild that go on vacation every summer to the Okanagan. We call ourselves the CSS’ers which is short for Camp Snifty Snakers.
Yes, it is a cult.
Ya know how, for some U.S.sweepstakes , Canadians have to complete a test of skill to qualify for the prize…
this be they.
So, is that a headband or a tear in the space-time continuum allowing the emergence of a parallel dimension into this universe?
I assume that once you open the box, those nose hoses are assigned to a player…for life.
see, the Canadians do have talent and creativity.
What happens when you don’t pay the cable bill.
I think this picture is great-colorful, different, unassuming. I have no idea how to play the game-do you inhale and exhale through your nose to move the pieces? I like how Leap Frog Fridge Phonics are on the fridge in the back! I think it’s a cool picture!
It’snot your turn…
that snot the point!
“WTF?!” doesn’t begin to cover it.
“Snifty Snakes on a Plane”. Just wondering if it would work: ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! I have had it with this monkey fighting snifty snakes on this Monday to Friday plane! Yeah, I think Samuel Jackson can make it work.
If he can’t make it work, a compound bow can.
lol This is funny and awkward.
Hmpf…kids…always stickin’ their nose where it doesn’t belong!
My theory on this game is they are trying to use The Force to move these pieces. Not the intense concentration. The glasses and noses are just a super rad fashion statement, and have nothing to do with this game at all.
They’re playing Snifty Snakes!
Wouldn’t you hate to be the one who has to clean the nose things after the game????????
Ahahahaha! That was waaaayyy too funny!
Really, I hope it’s a disposable game.
Good way to spread the Swine Flu…
oh no. I bet that kitchen smells like sugar cereal.
and does the photo on its box cover convey the imminent awkwardity?
What is this game?
I stared really hard at this, trying to understand the game. My only guess is that you get a checker piece for each hour you manage to seat around the board wearing this prop. You get one in half an hour if your prop is in the circle (yellow player).
LOL.. you are crackin me up with yellow player! haha
Don’t have a clue, the colours look like ludo…but I don’t know what the snakes for
Like Ludo Bagman? He always did dress funny!
I like how the glasses have their own color-coordinated eyebrows
lol Agreed!! the game would clearly be incomplete without the color-coordinated eyebrows!!
I wonder why this game never took off?
I don’t know, it looks amazing!
Skinnamarink e-dink e-dink
I love you.
I love you in the morning
and in the afternoon.
I love you in the evening
underneath the moon.
wow, that brought back some memories
WTF? I think they should be playing with compound bows!
NEVER seen or heard of that one…
I’ve never seen that game before…hahaha is it something to do with snakes and elephants?
This is AWESOME, not awkward. I mean, come on. They look so happy.
If Sorry and Hungry Hungry Hippos had a baby and it was raised by Groucho Marx, it would be this game.
I have a few observations:
1) Although the game doesn’t seem that difficult or complicated, it does appear to capture an EXTREME level of concentration
2) Without actually knowing what game this is, or being familiar with the rules….. but shouldn’t the Green ‘Marx bros’ elephant and the Blue ‘Marx bros’ elephant be on the opposite sides so the colour matches?
3) The hidden man in the background – Who is this man? Is he the missing Red ‘Marx bros’ elephant, or…….could this ‘dark figure’ actually be forcing these children to play such a game? If so, then thepreviously perceived expressions of “concentration” may in fact be “fear of consequence as a result of failure” !!!
What ever it is…… I love it, thanks for submitting it Johnny
What are they playing?
It’s a Canadian board games callled “Snifty Snakes”
hmmm?don’t know but going by the looks of excitement on their faces i’m not rushing to get it for xmas
very, very punny comment.
hahahahahahaha. well done.
It’s called “Snifty Snakes.” Kind of a famously absurd bit of trivia among boardgame fans.
hmm… Are they about to pass out; from all the breathing in, take a breath, breathing in, take another breath. lol
