#2 Favorite Christmas Game: Apples to Apples


Apples to Apples is my number one all-time favorite game that comes in a box. I was introduced to Apples to Apples a few years ago at a New Year's Eve party. It was so much fun. That year for Christmas I gave it to all my siblings and several close friends for Christmas. Yes, that's how much I like this game. It can be played by any age that can read. There is an Apples to Apples Kids (ages 7+) and an Apples to Apples Jr. (ages 9+) that are easier for younger children but not so easy that adults can't enjoy them too. And it's not that younger children can't play the "adult" version, but they may not recognize some of the iconic references (like Elizabeth Taylor).

Unlike some games where after you use the cards a few times, you know what's coming and you need to buy an update set, the combinations you can make with these cards are endless. You can get by with a smaller expansion pack, but I recommend getting the full Party set.

Promo info: Apples to Apples is the wild, award-winning card and party game that provides instant fun for four to ten players! It's as easy as "comparing apples to apples"... just open the box, deal the cards, and you're ready to play! Select the card from your hand that you think is best described by a card played by the judge. If the judge picks your card, you win that round. And everyone gets a chance to be the judge! Each round is filled with surprising and outrageous comparisons from a wide range of people, places, things and events. Fast moving and refreshing, Apples to Apples is perfect for any get together with family and friends!

If you've never played Apples to Apples, here's a demo video of how the game works.

Fun, huh? Also, I'm pretty sure it turns your children into geniuses AND prevents brain rot in adults.

I couldn't agree more Karlene. We LOVE this game and get it out at least a few times a week. I've also been sneaking onto their site at work to play. It's a few quick rounds to sneak in when the boss has their back turned. You can find it at www.playyourredcard.com
