Last Updated on March 3, 2016 by Cassie Lyons
The Apples to Apples Party Box by Mattel is a game of sometimes surprising, usually hilarious and often outrageous comparisons of people, places, things and events. This award winning game combines quick thinking, humor and strategy. As an added educational bonus, this game will teach younger players to think outside of the box when comparing different things, inadvertently providing a lesson on analogies. When playing the game, players are dealt several cards that have a noun printed on them. For each turn, one player acts as judge, drawing a card with an adjective printed on it. Game cards include people, places, things and events.
The judge shows the adjective card to the other players, leaving the players to select their own noun card that most closely compares to the adjective card. The judge then selects the answer that they feel most closely describes the adjective card, declaring a winner for the round. Though the game is rated as being suitable for ages 12 and up, reviewers caution that some of the subject matter is more suitable for older teens. The Apples to Apples Party Box card game includes over 1,000 playing cards, a card tray and quick play rules.
