November 24, 2016: Apples to Apples

On Thanksgiving, we participated in a heavily competitive game of Apples to Apples.  

  • If you’ve never played, for each round, one person is the judge, who lays down a card with an adjective on it.  Then each player lays down a card with a noun and the judge picks the one which fits the adjective the best.  (Or is funniest.  Whatever works.)  If yours gets picked, you win that round!
  •  For example, if the card was “awkward”, you might lay down your “Helen Keller” card and win at life.

 

Joel:  Okay, the word is “selfish”.

(Joel turns over the cards one by one.  Based on crowd reaction, I assumed “mosquitoes” would have it.  They are awfully selfish, as it happens.  However, the final card to be turned over happened to be Lucy’s.)

Joel:  And the last one is… lobster.

Lucy:  Get it?  Because they’re “shellfish”!

(Yeah, she won that round.)
