Apples to Oranges! Interactive Board Game

game prototype

Apples to Apples is a party game originally published by Out of the Box Publishing, and now published by Mattel. It is designed for four to ten players. The game was chosen by Mensa International in 1999 as a "Mensa Select" prizewinner, an award given to five games each year. Apples to Apples was named "Party Game of the Year" in the December 1999 issue of Games magazine and received the National Parenting Center's seal of approval in May 1999. Matt Kirby designed the game prototype called Apples to Oranges in 1997 and submitted it to The Game Keeper game design contest. Kirby had already entered into a licensing agreement with Out of the Box game publishing. They published the game and Keith Meyers of The Game Keeper held onto this prototype.
