I like the sour apple.

Why did someone think that adding more losing would make this game more fun?

Myself and many of the people my husband and I spend time with are all huge apples to apples fans. We've had a lot of fun with the original, but of course, over time, the cards have all been played a few times too many and it's simply time for an update. Expansion packs are always a great option, but when I saw this game in a Target circular, I knew we had to have it (ps, target sells this game for $25.99 in stores).

We just tried it out for the first time last night with some friends. The basic game play is the same, but now instead of maintaining 2 decks, the cards are double ended with both red and green apples (adjectives and nouns) this is a nice option as there is now less sorting when you put the game away. The new "twist" is the addition of choosing the worst answer as well as the best. If you are chosen as worst, you use a spinner which issues you a consequence. Over all, this is fun, the new words are needed, and the spinner adds some fun, though I recommend more than 4 people for this version. My only real negative is that the cards no longer have the definitions/explanations that the cards in the original game included.

This is a great twist on the original Apples to Apples game and if you've never played or are looking for a new way to play the original, this would be a great purchase for you... HOWEVER...

DO NOT BUY FROM THIS SELLER.

Target sells this for half the cost if not less... for around $25 (give or take a dollar in tax) you can get this at a Target store...

This is EXTREME price gouging...

What a joke.

On Christmas Day, I went to visit my family, and someone had given my parents this new version of Apples to Apples. It is much worse than the original version.

1. The green apples and red apples are on the same cards. While this makes choosing the next adjective more interesting (as you choose them from your own hand rather than drawing a random one), it makes it VERY easy to get them mixed up. If someone puts down the green apple card and then everyone else tosses their cards on top of it, it can be hard to find the green card in the pile.

2. Because the cards have a double use, they no longer have room for any explanations on them to tell you who or what this thing is. I am very bad at remembering actors' names, and I almost always had a name of a person in my hand who I didn't recognize. In the original version, each card would have a sentence or two to explain who they were, so that you'd have a better idea of whether they matched. Here, you can't even ask someone because then they'll know what cards you have. I guess this just expects everyone to have a smartphone in one hand open to Wikipedia.

3. The rules tell you to pick the best match and the worst match. 90% of the time I played the original version, we'd pick the match that made us laugh the most. Why did someone think that adding more losing would make this game more fun? Needing to choose a loser for each round forces us to mentally rank the cards from best to worst, which is more stressful than "I'm picking this card because I like it" that we'd normally play with.

4. Losing is very often out of your control, so it easily teaches your children that whether they win or lose has nothing to do with how hard they try or how smart they are.

I got this game, excited for a new twist. We've used it once. It's not nearly as fun as the original Apples to Apples! Don't waste your money - get the red box instead!

Our family really enjoys the original Apples to Apples game. This new version, Sour Apples to Apples, adds some fun game play elements, but also has some down sides.

The Good - We like the choosing of the worst match as well as the best match. That's a lot of fun. The apples spinner to choose the penalty/reward for the worst match is good, too. We really like that game play addition!

The Less Good - At first, we thought it was a good idea to have a single deck of cards to manage -- red and green game elements on each card -- instead of managing two decks (red and green). In practice, however, it's harder. The cards all look alike, and with cards strewn all over the table, it's a little more difficult to keep track of your points, which are counted as the supposed-green cards you've won. Further, the very young and the very old have a little harder time with the red and green game elements on the same card. I think we still prefer the separate decks.

The Bad - We were really disappointed with some of the card content. Playing this with the family, it's just not cool for Mattel to make me explain a Brazilian Wax to my 8-year-old. Sure, the game is officially rated as 14 years and up, but still. I'm not satisfied that "Brazilian Wax" or "My First Time" are topics fit for 14-year-olds, either.

So, I'm tearing up the objectionable cards as we play, and we continue playing as a family. But I think Mattel missed the boat on this one.

Not as good as apples to apples. Just buy the first one. Or wait til cards against humanity are in.
