Apples to Apples!

It's the Fall Festival which means it's time for ToO Apples to Apples! \:D/
This is a long time tradition for us this time of year, and one of my favorite recurring events!

Here's how it works:
  • Every player will be sent a pm with their starting hand of red cards.
  • I will appoint a judge for the first round and post a green card in this thread.
  • Each player except the judge should choose one red card from their hand that they think is best described by the word on the posted green card and pm me their choice.
  • I will pm them a new red card to replace the one they chose.
  • When enough players have sent me a red card I will post all the submissions in this thread.
  • The judge of the round picks the red card they think is best described by the word on the green card and posts their decision in this thread, preferably with a brief explanation of why they picked that one.
  • The player who submitted the chosen red card gets a point and the next round begins with a new judge and a new green card.

There isn't a prize for winning, or a score limit we're playing to, it's just for fun and we'll go as long as the Fall Festival does as long as people want to keep playing! :) New players are welcome to join in after the game starts, just post that you want to play and I'll send you your cards! Note that to keep things moving I will not always wait until everyone has sent in a card each round to begin the judging phase. If you miss a round that's okay, just wait for the next one. Ideally we are aiming at doing a round a day, so please keep your eye on the thread and your pms for new activity so we don't have stalls in the game!


If you want to play sign up in this thread now and the game will start soon!

I will be getting this started as soon as I can, sorry for the delay! We will continue the game into the Christmas Celebration to make up for lost playing time!

No worries! I was just thinking about this thread today and thinking we could easily play into Christmas.

Clearly, I have to choose Tom Cruise. I don't think I've ever actually watched a Tom Cruise movie, but I've seen him in interviews and he always seems quite smooth and charming.

The winner of the round is Catspaw!

Scores:
Catspaw - 1



The only card I could make fit was The 1920s; it was a stretch for the judge to catch my reasoning without explanation, but I was thinking along the lines of 'smooth jazz' - which actually works as the 20's were the jazz age.


Round 2:

The judge is: Monty_Whittaker

The green card is: Frivolous (trivial, silly, shallow)

Players, PM me the red card from your hand you think this best describes!

I actually had been thinking of jazz for The 1920s, but then I started thinking about the Great Depression, which tipped the scales in Tom Cruise's favor.

With the explanation, your card does make sense, bookworm! I just happened to have the perfect card to play for that round.

I just thought that VW beetle are smooth cars. Plus my other cards were pretty much the opposite
