How to Get Started
Just open the box, deal the Red Apple cards to each player, and you’re ready to go! Players take turns being the judge. The judge begins each round by playing a Green Apple card that features a one-word characteristic, such as Crunchy, Smelly, or Excellent. The other players must then look at the Red Apple cards in their hands and select the one they think is best described by the judge’s card. Will you play Pickles, Monkeys, or Flip-flops?
Big Talk Equals Big Fun…and Big Wins!
When everyone’s Red Apple cards are on the table, try to convince the judge that yours is the best match. You’ll find that table talk is a huge part of the fun. Just wait until you hear all the clever — and not so clever — ways people try to convince the judge to choose a particular card. Do your best, because if the judge picks your card, you win that round. The first player to win four rounds wins the game!
What's In The Box?
576 Red and Green Apple cards plus instructions.
Players will delight in the crazy comparisons while expanding their vocabulary and thinking skills.

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.Read more ›
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.
I must say this is one of the most entertaining games we've ever played as a family. I rank it second behind HyperDash, and Apples to Apples Jr. is definitely our new favorite board game.
The concept is surprisingly simple:
1. Players are provided five red cards made up of "things". For example, "Teeth", or "Dark Alley".
2. Each player takes turn being the "judge". The judge pulls a green card that needs comparison (typically in the form of an adjective or adverb). For example, "Graceful", or "Scary".
3. All other players submit the red card in their hand that they feel best compares with the green card. The judge then makes a decision and the card the judge feels best compares with the green card is the winner (and that player receives a "point"). The first to four wins.
What is so fun about this is playing to each judge's mindset. For example, when my nine-year-old son is the judge and asks to compare something that is "Magical", he might feel a card with "Lunchroom" compares better than "Clouds". Or my-seven-year old daughter might feel a pencil is more "Frail" then "Paper" because she breaks the tips of her pencil quite often. You get the idea... Thus the strategy is to think in terms of what the judge likes best.
I cannot recommend this game enough. While it can be played with 2+ players, the more people playing the better, which is actually a plus!
