Here are the full rules for Grab:
Someone shouts "Grab", everyone takes four cards and tries to make a word from those letters. The first person to do so shouts "Grab" and everyone snatches four more cards from the pile. Each time anyone uses up all their cards, they shout "Grab" and everyone takes four more cards each.
You are probably beginning to get an idea of the frenzied atmosphere that the game creates and the non-stop racing action involved! It's a fast moving racing game from start to finish.
Here's a more detailed explanation:
Each player makes their own set of words in a "crossword style" grid, as shown in the images below:
The game continues with everyone frantically racing to use up their cards until the pack of cards in the middle is used. When somebody uses up the last of their remaining cards, they shout "out" and the game ends.
The person who shouted "out" gets five points for winning whilst everyone else loses a point for each card they have failed to use in a word.
Then pick up the cards, shuffle them and start again!.
