4.0 out of 5 stars Debating Society For Juniors 1 Jan 2014
By A. Marczak TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As games go, this couldn't be much simpler. The judge picks a green card, the players have five red cards each, and must pick one that most closely "goes with" the green card. It encourages debate, lateral thinking and friendly argument between all members of the family, as you try to convince the judge that "dirt" goes with "silent" better than "movie theater".

As suggested elsewhere, there are many Americanisms in this game, but there are soooo many cards that this really doesn't matter. As with all the best games, you can tailor the rules to your own making, so that the game is as easy or as short as necessary. Best of all, because there's no board, it can go anywhere.

This is a lovely fun game which it is possible for adults to enjoy as well as the children. We played it with a mixed group from 7 to 70 and had a delightful time. It need not be too competitive and helps with reading and cognitive skills

The only downside is that there are a few 'Amercanisms' which sometimes confuses the younger players - but other than that it's great family entertainment.

My grandchildren really enjoyed playing this game over the festive season - more so than I did, but then it is a game for children. I had previously played a version it in the USA, and thought that this one had been cleansed of its American bias. This is not the case; there are still a lot of Americanisms, but there are so many cards that this doesn't really matter, and there are alternative words/definitions on each of the cards anyway. There is no game board, just a lot of cards, and no complex rules. Grandchildren grasped the idea in a couple of minutes and were immediately able to enjoy playing. As to the length of the game, you can decide on this by setting a time limit or finishing when the first player has reached a given number of points. The best thing about the game is that it encourages lateral thinking and enjoyable conversation. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Creative family fun 16 Nov 2008
By D. Runski - Published on Amazon.com
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is fun for ages 6 (reading) and up. Game players go around the table taking turns being the judge. One card is pulled and set out for everyone to see, It may say a word like fuzzy. In each players hand, they have five cards with random nouns on them and the player has to decide what best goes with "fuzzy". The game gets pretty funny when you don't quite have a card that goes. For instance, you may have words like, tomato, tornado and thistle. The cool thing about it is that you get to plead your case to the judge and try to get them to choose your card. It is a silly and fun game (for ages 6 and reading to adult) and really gets the creative "juices" flowing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just as much fun as the adult version - plus shhh they might learn something 22 Nov 2011

** REGULAR VS JUNIOR **
What is the difference between Apples to Apples the regular version and this Apples to Apples Junior? It appears that the main difference is in the types of proper names & pop culture. The words in Apples to Apples Junior are not super simple, they have a very wide variety of vocabulary words, but they don't have as many references to politicians or movie stars - the types of things younger kids would not be aware of. There are still proper names, but they are more kid friendly, like Spiderman or The Statue of Liberty.

** HOW IT WORKS **
Apples to Apples is a party game, it really is for 4 or more people, and in this case it is better with more. There are two types of cards, red and green. The green cards contain adjectives (e.g. calm, bold, silly). The red cards contain nouns or actions (e.g. glass, hamsters, Superman). One person acts as the judge, they flip over a green card and reveal the adjective. Everyone else has red cards in their hand, from those cards they have to pick the card they think best fits the trait listed on the green card. They all place their cards face down and the judge mixes them up then turns them over. The judge then gets to decide which word best fits the adjective. The person whose card that is wins the green card. You play until one person reaches a certain number of cards. The person who won the card then acts as the judge the next time.

** WHY ITS FUN **
What makes this game so much fun is that you have a limited number of choices of cards in your hands, so you often don't quite have the best match, so sometimes the matches are really silly. The judge is under no obligation to pick the card based on the definition - sometimes the funniest combo wins. It's also fun to try to subtly (or not so subtly for kids) influence the judge to pick your own card without giving it away.

** EDUCATIONAL VALUE **
Each adjective card has several synonyms listed on it. So if the child isn't familiar with the word they can figure it out from the synonyms listed. It's great for building vocabulary. The red cards have little sayings related to the words as well. My kids like to read out each card as they turn it over.

** AGE RANGE **
The rules are very simple to understand, but the cards do not have any pictures or anything to indicate what the card is to a child who can't read. My son is a very early reader and we got frustrated playing with him because he had to have the cards read to him constantly and since the cards are supposed to be a secret (so the judge doesn't know) this makes it very difficult. So I would say this is definitely a game for a child who can read at least somewhere around those step 3 readers. However, as long as everyone can read, this is a great game to play with kids and adults, since as I said above the only difference with the adult version is the references to proper nouns.

** RECOMMENDATION **
We've had a great time playing this game, both with the kids and the regular game with groups of adults. A lot of laughs always results and I feel like its reinforcing good vocabulary in the kids as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game - makes everyone think! 31 Aug 2009

We made a family summer visit and one evening their 10 year old brought out this game. It was a great ruckus, and we bought it right when we got home. It is probably one of the most versatile, social, "intelligent" games around. It's amazingly simple, and does a great job of creating humorous and good natured competition.

Since winning is entirely based on the opinion of the dealer/judge, the game scales perfectly with whoever is playing. Since everything is pretty much in the open, "cheating" doesn't really exist, and it's loads of fun to argue over which word should be the best match. It's also offers insight into how your youngins' think. For example, my 6 year old, acting as a dealer, gave us a card of "Fragile." We played the cards "Brains," "Plates," and "Alaska." Now, I think Alaska was a great answer, but my son picked Plates.

There is no mean-spiritedness in the game at all.

This is a great family game. This game is fun for any age that can read. It can be played with odd or even numbers. The game encourages table talk and developes logical thought in younger players. Great for large gatherings. Don't miss it.

It is very hard--and by very hard I mean next to impossible--to find a game that your kids will enjoy and that won't cause your brain to melt out of your head. Apples to Apples is a rare example of a game all ages will enjoy. My kids and I have had lots of fun playing, and it's easy enough to "cheat" to let the youngest win if that's how things are done in your house. It really makes the kids think about the meanings of works and their synonyms, so it has educational value as well. There are LOTS of cards so you can play over and over without hitting the same subject twice. All in all one of the best games for kids and grownups I've played in a long time.
