Easy to Learn, Fun to Play

There are just two types of cards: Things and Descriptions. Each player takes turns being the judge and pulling the next Description card. The other players try to pick, from the cards in their hands, the Things they feel best match that Description—in the eyes of the judge. So it helps to know your judges a little better, too.

You have to collect a certain number of Description cards to win the game – it depends on how many players you have (more players = less cards needed to win). And with so many cards and possibilities, it’s never the same game twice.

Product Description

Apples to Apples is an award-winning party game that will have everyone laughing. We had a blast playing this game and think it is a perfect game for a "board game night" with friends and family. It is quick to set up, easy to learn, challenging, and a whole lot of fun. Apples to Apples has won numerous awards including "Party Game of the Year" by Games magazine and "Mensa Select" by Mensa International. And for good reason: it involves quick thinking, humor, and strategy. For teens, the game teaches them to think about how different things can be compared to one another and how analogies are formed. One of our criticisms is that although the game states that it is designed for ages 12 and older, many of the subjects are clearly for older teens. The name of the game is a play on the phrase "apples to oranges," and the game is about making comparisons between different things. General game play is as follows: players are dealt red cards which have a noun printed on them, and the judge (a different player in each turn) draws a green card on which an adjective is printed and places it for all players to see. Each player then chooses a red card they are holding that they think best describes the green card. The judge then decides which adjective she likes best. The fun is in the variety of unexpected comparisons people make, sometimes apt, funny, creative, or simply absurd. For example: people might match "Awkward" with "Oil Spills," "My First Kiss," "Dandruff," and "Gold Chains. " Or: "Painful" with "High School Reunions" and "Regis Philben. " Strategy comes into play since, because each player takes turns being the judge, you begin to pick up on the preferences of each player and tailor your choices accordingly. Players can also try variations on the basic game play. For example, instead of choosing the most apt comparison, players might try choosing the red card that is least like the green one. These variations keep the game fresh and interesting every time.

Showed up sooner than I expected it to, much cheaper than in store (and still brand new), which was brilliant.

Six of us played but we soon abandoned it as it was becoming quite boring, so we moved on to Heads Up which was much more fun!

3.0 out of 5 stars G-rated fun March 4 2014
Format:Toy|Verified Purchase
I remembered having a lot of fun playing this game with my husband and another couple three or four years ago, so when we were looking for some social games, we purchased it. It's fine if you have a G-rated or perhaps PG-rated crowd, but now that we've played Cards Against Humanity at several parties, Apples to Apples just seems like a boring, watered-down version of CAH.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great PG version of Cards Against Humanity Feb. 2 2014
Format:Toy|Verified Purchase
Love this game for parties where the crowd might be a little more PG that for CAH.

This version has more recent pop culture references (ex. Big Bang Theory) and the "Party Box" aspect is true - way more cards!

Definitely worth the small investment if you like to entertain or want something fun to bring along to a get together rather than a cheese plate.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun game Jan. 15 2014

Format:Toy
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a fun game with not much thinking involved. You have to act fast so it can be stressful but in a thrilling way. I only gave it 4 stars because you can only play a few rounds before it gets old.
