The party gameApples to Applesconsists of two decks ofcards:ThingsandDescriptions. Each round, the active player draws aDescriptioncard (which features an adjective like "Hairy" or "Smarmy") from the deck, then the other players each secretly choose theThingcard in hand that best matches that description and plays it face-down on the table. The active player then reveals these cards and chooses theThingcard that, in his opinion, best matches theDescriptioncard, which he awards to whoever played thatThingcard. This player becomes the new active player for the next round.
Once a player has won a pre-determined number ofDescriptioncards, that player wins.
