Category Description for Apples to Apples:

When this sample arrived, our game testing department - (Steph and I) - sat down to try it out. We recruited one of our friends, read the directions, and started playing. It was a blast! It had us all laughing within minutes. Claiming we hadn't quite gotten the full effect because we'd only played with 3 people, we talked Mom into joining us for a little while. Even after she had to leave, we continued playing until we ran out of cards. It was the most entertaining new game I'd played in a long time. There are two different kinds of cards; green apple cards and red apple cards. Players all draw seven red apple cards, which feature a wide variety of nouns. These might include: "William Shakespeare," "a locker room," "worms," "Babe Ruth," "mud," "windsurfing," "the Green Bay Packers," "silk," "baby showers," "the Great Depression," "a sunset," "chimpanzees," "doing the dishes," "computers," "your hair," "Cleopatra," and "mirrors." Then one person starts off being the judge, and flips over one of the green apple cards, which each have an adjective, such as "creative," "awkward," "obnoxious," "funny," "perfect," "distinguished," "fabulous," "inspiring," and many more. These are also defined at the bottom, so players can expand their vocabularies as a bonus. Everyone except the judge chooses a card out of their hand that best fits that adjective. Then the judge decides which one matches best. The results are hilarious, as sometimes none of your cards really fit the adjective at all, and you end up with a far-fetched comparison. The person whose card won gets to keep the green card, and everyone pulls a new red card to keep seven in their hand at all times. Play passes to the left. Whoever reaches the chosen amount of green cards first wins. Or, if you're like us, you wait until you run out of adjective cards to decide who wins. It recommends 4 - 8 players, and when you get 6 or more players, another twist is added. If you are the last one to lay your card down, it doesn't get judged. So now you have to be creative and quick! And if you have some great ideas, make some of your own cards to add to the fun. Hope you have as much fun with this one as we did. - Melissa

Consistently one of our favorite games for our WHOLE FAMILY This is one of the very few games we can all play and enjoy with such varied ages playing When we first started playing we had three older kids and a 3 and 5 year old who didn't know how to read The two non-readers both just chose random cards and threw them in but won just as often as the rest of us! As they have begun to learn to read they were able to participate in the "right" way We have a very small shelf of games by the dining room table that contains the games we play most often and this game hasn't left that shelf since it arrived! It is also simple enough for newcomers to learn in 1 minute! I also like that ANY NUMBER of people can play (with a minimum of three) There are enough cards and variety in the game to play over and over again without feeling like it's the same old game again Also it's reading and comprehension level is at a level that even most beginning readers can understand Definitely a FAMILY game we will always have in our home!

My family absolutely loves this game We play it at holidays and family get-togethers and we all really enjoy it (from the grandparents down to my 8yo) I bought this version because I heard that the adult version wasn't really appropriate for younger kids We've been very happy with it and are planning to buy some customizable cards as well Use this game for parties family gatherings homeschool coops and game days I have yet to find some one who does not enjoy this game Besides being fun it does a great job of making you think about the relationship among words It's a lot of fun to see how kids sometimes make connections that adults miss and it's a real challenge to try to defend and explain the connections you made I think this version is probably the best for a wide range of ages
