5. Work Together

Q: How do you win the game?

A: The point of the game is social interaction, and there is not necessarily a set way to win within the game. Realistically, the game stops being playable when you have snagged every person playing, though that is not what the developers wish to happen. The person with the most points at an arbitrary ending period is considered winner. However, due to the nature of the game there is many different ways one can interpret "win" for this particular game.

Q: What is the whole objective of the game?

A: Snag'em is a serious game designed to incorporate social networking into an easy to use platform. The developers intend for the game to continue growing so an end is never reached. The game is designed so the reward is not achieved through ending the game, but through the journey of ubiquitous play. The optimal strategy (optimal in this case referring to getting the most out of playing, not getting first place) is to interact with as many of your classmates as possible.
