Apples to Apples

Some of you asked about the game we played on Thanksgiving - it’s called Apples to Apples. We laughed so hard, I thought I’d burst my zipper. Oh, wait, that was the turkey and pie. Well, anyway the game’s a lot of fun. Everyone gets seven red cards that contain mostly nouns, and everyone takes turns being the judge. When you’re the judge, you draw a green card that is a descriptive word like cranky or fantastic. Everyone anonymously plays a card on it, and the judge then picks the one they think fits best. The one who wins eight cards first wins. Once you figure out how it works, you can sort of match the card you play to the person judging - unless you have only unhelpful words in your hand.

Always fun to try a new family game.


  1. I'll have to look for this, it sounds like a game our family would like too! Glad you had such a great time on Thanksgiving. It's back to real life tomorrow I guess!

  2. This sounds like fun. I love games...I just wish someone would play them with me...LOL

  3. We played Apples to Apples on Thanksgiving, too, Cheryl.
    I love Catch Phrase, too.
