A Fresh and Needed Update to the Original,
= Durability: = Fun: = Educational:
This review is from: Apples to Apples Sour Edition (Toy)
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.
