Apples to Apples

Apples to Apples

Apples to Apples consists only of two decks of cards: Things and Descriptions. Each turn, the current referee selects a Description and players try to pick, from the cards in their hands, the Things that best match that Description. The referee then chooses the Thing that appeals most and awards the card to the player who played it. The unusual combinations of Things and Descriptions are humorous to the extreme, and will quickly have the entire room in an uproar. Once a player has won a pre-determined number of cards, that player wins.

A fun party game; great for a laugh (or an argument); works well as an ice breaker or a warm-up. Has very little (if any) strategy. I can see this being a good exercise game with children though, possibly a teaching aid.
