    Best Card Game: Apples to Apples

    This is a word association game that kicks some serious ass. I played it for the first time 4 years ago and have loved it ever since. When you know the people you are playing with fairly well it makes it that much more entertaining. If you don't know them, you'll start to understand their sense of humor very quickly. Very simple to learn and hysterical to play. Converts to a drinking game as well.

    From Wiki:

    Each player is dealt seven "red apple" cards; on each is printed a noun or noun phrase (such as "Madonna", "Canada", "The Spanish Inquisition", "Michael Jackson", etc.).

    The judge (a chosen player) draws a "green apple" card on which is printed an adjective ("scary", "frightening", "patriotic", etc.), and places it face-up on the table for everybody to see. Then each player (except the judge) chooses a card that they think is the best match for the green apple card, and places it face-down. The judge shuffles the red apple cards, reads them (often aloud), and decides which noun is the best match for the adjective. This decision is subjective; the official rules encourage the judge to pick the match that is "most creative, humorous or interesting". Some might think it humorous if "mud" is played for delicious, and might give that player the point.

    The player who submitted the chosen red apple card wins the round, and takes the green apple card to signify the win. All players then draw red cards until they have seven again, and the role of "judge" may pass to another person (generally going to the next player in line, though some rules have the round's winner becoming "judge"). Some editions of the game suggest discounting the last red-apple card played, to encourage players to place their cards down more quickly.

    The winner is the first player to accumulate a pre-designated number of green apple cards; the more players, the lower the total.

    A great one was: Sensitive: Winning card was "Adolf Hitler"



    $30 (and well worth it)

    What is your favorite card/board game? Tell me about it.

    My favorite game right now would probably be Mafia.


    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mafia_(party_game)


    Mafia (also known as Werewolf or Assassin) is a party game modeling a battle between an informed minority and an uninformed majority. Players are secretly assigned roles: either "mafia", who know each other; or "townspeople", who know only the number of mafia amongst them. During the night phase of the game, the Mafia choose an innocent to kill. During the day phase, all players debate the identities of the Mafia and vote to kill someone whom the majority suspect. Players are eliminated until either all mafia are killed or the mafia outnumber the innocents. Mafia is rarely played in groups of fewer than five, and must always start with more innocents than mafia.


    I also love Apples to Apples. It's always a choice between that and Mafia at our parties.

    It must be hard to maintain a reasonable stable of friends if you play that game too much.

    I was busy having a life and social presence.

    Pokemon = dungeons and dragons = WoW. You might as well hang up the success shoes. Life is going to be difficult for you.

    I doubt it'll be the same as sitting around getting drunk with your friends, but losers need options too.

    I enjoy Life (went bankrupt twice in the same game and STILL won haha!), PayDay, Stratego, Clue, Guess Who, Easy Money, Home Alone board game (you booby trap the house(board) with little tiles of different things from the movie - tar nail, paint buckets, micro machine cars, hot iron etc...), scattergories, Pictionary, and of course good ol' chess.

    Apples to Apples is a fantastic game.

    In terms of non-gambling associated card games, I'm partial to Euchre

    On a not so serious note, I've had a good time playing lucky chess


    On a serious matter, I'm unbeatable at Balderdash (Beyond Balderdash):


    Gotta love Stratego:
