In one of the strangest, most intriguing product launches in recent memory, Snapchat released a deck of branded playing cards today. 
 
The deck is in no way technologically enabled, however, Snapchat has created a selfie-oriented game that integrates their app with the cards. Here are the rules according to Amazon:
 
"Sit around a table with friends and dump the cards in the middle! Have everyone take a Snap together, caption it "SnapKings," and add it to their Stories. Have one friend pick a card and follow these instructions. Then another friend picks. Happy Snapping!" 
 
Ace - Waterfall - Everyone Snaps the person next to them, then adds to their Story. 
2 - You - Tell a friend what face to make and Snap them. Add to your Story. 
3 - Me - Snap yourself while making your grossest selfie face. Add to your Story. 
4 - Score - Challenge one friend to see who has the higher Snapchat Score. The loser gets to send a Chat from the loser's phone to whomever they please. 
5 - Guys - Girls get to pose the guys however they want for a Snap. Add to Story. 
6 - Girls - Guys get to pose the girls however they want for a Snap. Add to Story. 
7 - Heaven - Everyone throws their phone towards the heavens. Whoever throws the lowest must give their phone to a friend, lie on the floor, and let the friend Snap them. Add to your Story! 
8 - Mate - Choose a mate and take the same Snap together, then add to both of your Stories. Anything you do from now on, your mate has to do with you. 
9 - Rhyme - Bust a rhyme for a 10-second Snap. Add to your Story. 
10 - Lens - Pick a Lens for everyone to use in a Snap. Add to Stories. 
Jack - Smack - Talk smack to a friend while recording a Snap of them. Add to Story. 
Queen - Question - Question a friend while recording a Snap of them. Add to Story. 
King - Make a rule - Whoever violates the rule must make the face you choose in every Snap for the rest of the game. 
Last King drawn - Everyone gets to pose you however they want for a Snap, and add it to their Stories. 
Joker - Pose the entire group however you want for a Snap. Add to your Story. 
 
The Built In office was "too busy" to play the game with me, however, if you feel like channeling your inner fifteen-year-old, you can order the deck on Amazon Prime Now for $10. Fair warning — you may end up looking like these girls:
