The Super Fun Game Of "ZAP" is a word game that I played when I was a child in Elementary School. I have not played it in over 12 years, but because I played it so much as a child I remember it completely.

It is a learning game that helps children spell words that they are trying to learn. That usually involves words that would be on the next spelling test.

This game was created for children in the 1st-4th grades that are learning to spell, but this could easily be modified to work with older people.

All that is required for this game is a foam cup with plastic cover, tin foil, 1 bag of M&M's a timer or alarm and a whiteboard with marker.

For setup, pour the bag of M&M's into the foam cup. You will then put the cover on the cup, leaving the cover hole open. After the cover is on the cup,you will cover the cup and cover in tin foil, only leaving the cover hole exposed. The whiteboard is to keep track of scores.

The object of the game is to shake the cup full of M&M's until one comes out of the hole. The color of the M&M determines how many points that you get.

After you do that, you then spell the word that is said out loud. If you spell the word right, then you get the points and the M&M. Your points are then added to the whiteboard.

If you spell it wrong then ZAP and you get nothing, not even the M&M.

The winner is the person with the most points at the end of the game. The length of the game is decided by the timer or alarm that can be set to as long as you want.

A normal game usually lasts about 20 minutes.
