This review is from: Cards Against Humanity (Toy)
This is not just an apples to apples deck filled with anne frank cards. The basic structure of the game is the same as Apples to Apples, but there's so much more to it. I've played wiith a bunch of distinct groups of people... a lot of whom start the game by ranting their hatred for apples to apples. But once we start everyone wants to play until they run out of cards. This includes the game I played with my family and my 80 year old grandmother (although explaining some of the cards to her was definitely awkward).

There's a real art in how the question and answer cards fit together. It honestly feels like you're all sitting around telling jokes. At a certain point the game comes alive and as you play various rounds the humor of the group you're in seeps into the game. It feels creative. So yes the mechanic is basically ripped from apples, but they've taken it and truly made something new out of it. You and your friends will love this game.

You assume that the consumer has played Apples to Apples. Since I have not, I am still clueless on how this game works.

Dear Lovely Heart,

I've never played Apples to Apples either. As with yourself (I'm assuming, since you took the time to comment), this review piqued my interest, so guess what I did? I Googled 'Apples to Apples', and seconds later I was on a Wikipedia page explaining the concept of the game in great detail! Here's the link: -

The tag line of the game is: "The party game for horrible people"

"This is not just an apples to apples deck filled with anne frank cards."

I probably laughed harder at this than I should of. Brilliant.
