After our big Thanksgiving lunch, the family was beginning to settle in to nap on the couches. My wife suggested to me that we should play Apples to Apples instead. I agreed and pulled the game out. We had 8 adults playing, 6 who had played before and my mother-in-law and her husband, who had not played before. It took about 20 seconds to explain the rules and we were off.

Since 8 were playing, the object of the game was to be the first player to receive 4 green cards. Cards are received by matching the "best" answer to
a green card, as determined by the judge. Each player takes a turn of being judge and answers are played anonymously.

The game was close, and at one point every player had exactly 2 cards. Then our friend Aaron got back to back matches for the win.

The game lasted about 25 minutes and everyone had fun. My brother-in-law commented that he and his wife usually play the game with a bunch of teenagers and that the most unusual answer is almost always chosen.

My mother-in-law enjoyed the game so much that she asked us to bring it to our Christmas dinner.

I have a family that likes to play games, so my mom emailed me Thanksgiving morning early with a "hey bring some games, but nothing hard, only fun easy group things". So I brought Apples to Apples and it worked really well.

I think I'll have to take it to Christmas too, like you. Although I asked for Thurn & Taxis and Wits & Wagers, figure Wits & Wagers might get played by most of this crowd if I get it.
