Apples to Apples - Grammar, Games and Fun

What do you think is the coldest? Jail, Mountains or Popsicles?



In the game Apples to Apples, players select a card from their hand which they believe goes best with the selected adjective. The judge (a rotating position) selects the best match. The winner is the first person to have five of their cards selected by the judge. 



 Apples to Apples Party Box - The Game of Crazy Combinations (Family Edition)

Crazy combinations make this game fun. Mushy clowns, colorful throw up, and fragile spaghetti may be selected as best matches. There are several versions of this game. After becoming hooked with a novelty Jelly Belly version we purchased a version with lots more cards. The kids love this game and I like it too. It's fun, but the kids are reading (a little), learning about nouns and adjectives, and beginning to select different cards based on who is judging. After all, my daughter is much more likely to select a card that says dance or fairy and my son is more likely to select iPad. Sometimes playing to the judge really works.
