Apples to Apples Gameplay
The gameplay of the Apples to Apples card game is simple and fast. Each turn, one player is the judge. First the judge deals out enough cards to bring everyone up to 7 cards. These "red apple" cards are objects or concepts, for example "A Sunset", "Black Velvet", or "Picking Your Nose".
The judge then takes one "green apple" or adjective card and plays it face up. Examples are "Peaceful", "Happy", or "Contemptuous". The players quickly put the red apple card they think best matches the adjective face down on the table.
Gotta be fast though, because the last card down isn't included in the round. The judge chooses the card that IN THIER OPINION best matches the adjective. Which card is closer to "Peaceful": "A Sunset" or "Picking Your Nose"? The judge awards the green apple card to the player who gave the best match.
The next player then becomes the judge and the turns keep going until one player collects enough green apple cards to be crowned the winner.
