If you’ve ever had the chance to play Apples to Apples, the fun party game that’s taking living rooms by storm worldwide, I don’t have to tell you how much fun it can be. People of all ages and abilities can play, it takes just minutes to learn but the fun goes on and one. A great conversation starter (and a fun vocabulary-builder for those of SAT-taking age), Apples to Apples turns any gathering into a party.
Play is simple: One player, the judge, draws a "green apple" card with an adjective (like “scary” or “cute”) and places it face-up on the table. Then the other players choose a “red apple” card from their hands (a person, place, or thing, like “Madonna” or “Disney World”) that they think best represents the word on the green card. The judge shuffles the red apple cards, reads them aloud, and decides which noun is the best match for the adjective. The winner gets the green card for the round; whoever reaches the target number of cards first wins the game.
