Every time we play this game with a group of people, nearly everyone wants to know where they can get it.
That's about the best praise a game can get.
Always fun, especially the larger a group gets. Because it allows for subjective judging of answers, the game always plays differently. Is uproarious fun with the right group. The only knock is that the cards aren't laminated.
Apples to Apples is the ultimate party game. It's one of those rare games I can play over and over and never get tired of it. I've played the game with at least 50 different people and I have yet to meet a single person that doesn't like the game.
Here's an example of a round of Apples to Apples. The judge turns over a green card with an adjective on it. In this case, let's say it has the word 'Horrifying'. Each player has 7 red cards in their hand with nouns on them. Players quickly toss one card from their hand into the center of the table that they think is best described by the word 'Horrifiying'. In this case, let's say the red cards that were played are Paying Taxes, A Morgue, Hairballs, Lawyers, Skydiving, Cockroaches, Michael Jackason, and Madonna's Hairy Armpits. The Judge would read the cards outloud to everyone, since the best part of the game is hearing how funny some of the answers are. The judge would then pick which card he/she thinks is the best match. The person who played the winning card takes the green card. The first person to get a specific number of green cards wins the game. It's that simple! I strongly recommend playing with at least 5 players. With less than that it isn't nearly as fun.
When I first read the rules for the game, I thought 'this doesn't sound very exciting.' Was I ever wrong! The game is hilarious, fast paced, and takes only 30 seconds to learn. If your group doesn't enjoy this game, you're either playing it wrong, or you're borderline comatose.
I was fortunate enough to get a promotianal copy of the Apple Crate Edition of game which comes in a very cool wooden crate. Inside is the original Apples to Apples game along with the first two expansions. That's 1000 cards!
If you don't have Apples to Apples yet, get off your lazy butt and go get it! You won't regret it!
Another Party Game (Hoo-Frickin-Ray). Five Minutes of Fun, More If You Drink Heavily. Typical Party Game. Appeals to the Pictionary Jr. Crowd. A Sure-Fire Hit at the Next Family Reunion. A Shade Too Complex for Children and Morons. These are titles that I came up with and discarded. However, I realized that these thoughts captured the flavor of the game more than the review I was writing.
There is very little that can be said about Apples to Apples. It is fluff disguised as a card game. One player turns over a green card with an adjective on it. Every other player plays a red card with a noun (or proper name) on it that they feel best describes the green card. The judge selects the card he feels is the best description. The person who played the chosen card gets the point. The next turn another player is the judge and hands are replenished. That is it.
Quite a few of the green cards (and red cards for that matter) have words that would be unfamiliar to many children under the age of 15, and people on Jay Leno's man-on-the-street interviews.
Apples to Apples is going to get a lot of good reviews on this web site from people who have only written one review. KEEP YOUR EYE ONE THE BALL, this is a party game of the lightest fare. It is not so much a game as it is a way to have a few sociable laughs. I didn't hate playing Apples to Apples. For the first 20 minutes it was a pleasant diversion. In moderation there is a place for games such as this, perhaps at certain church or family functions.
Oh yeah, about the box. Apples to Apples: Apple Crate Edition, actually comes in a wooden box, with a sliding lid. Nothing special, but unique and clever marketing nevertheless.
