Product Description

Flip and stack this clever loaf of cards to build slamwiches and double-deckers. Tomato, onion, tomato... slap! Get there first and win the pile. The player who collects all of the cards wins. Parental alert: a sharp eye and fast hand will prevail. Play all out, but the kids will beat you every time!

Slamwich teaches reading readiness skills, like visual discrimination and sequencing. While kids are flipping and stacking cards, they're actually learning how to recognize a series, make combinations, and anticipate what might happen.

Great card game for kids -- it's great fun!
January 01, 2005
Don't "slam" this game -- I've played this game with children ages 5 to 9, and also watched kids playing it amongst themselves without any adults, and have always seen the kids enjoying themselves. Kids love the tactile element in games, and in this quick card game they get that a huge heaping of that -- the first to slap the double-decker, or the slamwich, or the thief -- it's just great fun for them. Probably not going to keep them busy for an hour, but for 15 to 20 minutes it's great fun. Also, it's very easy to teach them, and for kids to teach to other kids.
There are better games...

If you are looking for a game for the preK-Grade 1 set, than this may fit the bill. Beyond that, it lacks any real thinking skills and quickly bores older kids (and parents). And the slapping! It was the cause of too many arguments about who actually slapped the card first! This game sits at the back of our game cabinet unused since the first day we tried it.
Cute game, but...

It's been played for years before Gamewright packaged it as Slamwich. If you think it's worth the extra bucks to have a specialized Egyptian Ratscrew deck, go for it. I'll stick with a regular deck of playing cards, thanks.
