Snapchat's Latest Product: Playing Cards?
In what might be the most unusual product to come out of Venice-based Snapchat, the company appears to have issued its own line of playing cards to inspire people to post Snaps of themselves on the service. Snapchat's official Twitter account tweeted out a link to the Official Snapchat Playing Cards, sold by Snapchat Inc. and fulfilled by Amazon.com, a standard deck of cards with an attached list of instructions for the game "SnapKings". That game--as described in the product description--assigns each of the card values to a different Snapchat related action, from taking a selfie, to using Snapchat's new Lens feature. The game is reminiscent of the college drinking game, Kings.
