Apples to Apples and Taboo are the party games to play. The Game Gang had a hilarious time playing these two games at Melodye and Bobby Rogers.

Apples to Apples, an infamous wild card and party game, provides instant fun. It’s as easy as comparing apples to apples, too. Select the card from your hand that you think best describes a card the judge will choose. If the judge picks your card, you win that round. Each round is filled with surprising and outrageous comparisons from a wide range of people, places, things and events. Fast moving and stimulating, Apples to Apples is perfect for any get-together with family and friends! Millie Aramanda won the prize apple!

Taboo is a party word game. Players take turns describing a word or phrase on a drawn card to their partner without using five common additional words or phrases also on the card. The opposing partners watch a timer and use a buzzer to stop the game, buzz the player describing if one of the five off limits words or phrases is used, or the describing player makes any gestures. The describing team gets a point for each card they guess successfully, and the opposing team gets a point for each card they pass on, make gestures on, or lose for saying one of the off limits words or phrases. An excellent party game!
