About Apples to Apples (board game)

Apples to Apples is a party game originally published by Out of the Box Publishing, and now published by Mattel. It is designed for four to ten players and played for 30-60 minutes. Apples to Apples was chosen by Mensa International in 1999 as a 'Mensa Select' prizewinner, an award given to five games each year. It was also named 'Party Game of the Year' in the December 1999 issue of Games magazine and received the National Parenting Center's seal of approval in May 1999. Each player is dealt seven 'red apple' cards; on each card is printed a noun or noun phrase, or possibly a gerund. The judge (a chosen player) draws a 'green apple' card on which is printed an adjective ('scary', 'frivolous', 'patriotic', etc.), and places it face-up on the table for everybody to see. Then 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.
