Features

Apples to Apples Party Box

Award-Winning Game Uses Humor and Strategy

Apples to Apples has won numerous awards, including "Party Game of the Year" by Games magazine and "Mensa Select" by Mensa International, for its use of 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.

Apples to Apples Party Box

Unlikely Comparisons and Analogies

General game play is as follows: players are dealt red noun cards, and the judge (a different player in each turn) draws a green adjective card and places it for all players to see. Each player then chooses the red card from his or her hand that they think best describes the green card. Once the cards are displayed, the judge decides which adjective fits best.

Apples to Apples Party Box

Players Defend Their Words--and Tell Stories

The fun is in the unexpected, apt, funny, creative, and absurd comparisons players make. A player might match "Awkward" with "Oil Spills," "My First Kiss," "Dandruff," and "Gold Chains." Or: "Painful" with "High School Reunions" and "Regis Philbin." Because each player takes turns being the judge, you begin to pick up on the preferences of each player and tailor your choices accordingly. Apples to Apples also inspires players to trade stories and associations, making it an effective icebreaker.

Apples to Apples Party Box

More Fun with Game Variations

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. Apples to Apples expansion packs are also available for when players have exhausted the more than 1,000 cards included in the party box.

          The game is fun and has worked out, but when I purchased I only looked at the FAMiLY description. I hadn't realized it was 12+ until I got it. My kids are younger but we can still have fun with the game.

                  I have used this game in my classroom as well as in my home, and I love it! There are so many things that students learn from that game-relationships, words, vocabulary, and fun. At home, it helps us to learn about one another and to kick back and have fun without making a big deal out of winners and losers. Great gift item!

                          I purchased this as an xmas gift for my daughter and her s/o (both 20-plus). My son (nearly 30) was present and all three of them are apparently enamored of the game and delighted with the acquisition thereof.
                          The game arrived within three days of the purchase, which was amazing.
                          No downers at all; I'm tickled with all aspects of the purchase and delighted it arrived so quickly.

                              Comments about Mattel 1001134 Apples to Apples Party Box - The Game of Hilarious Comparisons (Family Edition):

                              This is a great game to play with silly, creative, fun people. Its easy to learn and can be played with adults and teens, even kids can play (although they need to be old enough to read and to understand a good amount of vocabulary).

                              It can be played several ways, but the most common method is to have one player select a "green apple" card with an adjective on it. Such as "hilarious" or "entertaining". The remaining players then select a "red apple" card from their hand that they think best matches the adjective in play. "Red apple" cards can be people, places, or everyday items and can be selected for their realism, for fun, or just because. Because of this there are infinite combinations of cards that can be played. So even if you play enough to memorize the cards, the game never gets old. But if you do want to add more cards, bonus sets can be combined with the original game. Lots of fun at parties as the more players the better.

                                  The game was great ,but the cards kept falling out even after just carrying it somewhere.I spend about 5 minutes each game straightening the cards out.Otherwise,the game was hilarious and I loved it.
