Apples to Apples

There is a great game that is out (probably been out for awhile but I was just introduced to it). The game is called "Apples to Apples". We played the game at a dinner party during the Christmas holidays at our friend Holly's house. It was really alot of fun. If you haven't tried this game, give it a try. It's easy and simple and great laughs. There are a couple of versions. We used the Green boxed version.

Each player is dealt seven "red apple" cards; on each is printed a
noun or noun phrase (such as "Madonna", "Canada", "The Spanish Inquisition", "Michael Jackson", etc.).
The judge (a chosen player) draws a "green apple" card on which is printed an
adjective ("scary", "frightening", "patriotic", etc.), and places it face-up on the table. From amongst their red-apple cards, each player (except the judge) chooses a card that they think is the best match for the green apple card, and places it face-down. The judge shuffles the red apple cards, reads them aloud and decides which noun is the best match for the adjective. The player who submitted that red apple card wins the round, and takes the green apple card to signify the win. All players then draw red cards until they have seven again, and the role of "judge" may pass to another person (generally going to the next player in line.)
