* GameMod: Blank red and green cards are provided for players on which to write personal ideas.
** Blanks got popular enough that there's an official variant game where ''all'' green apples are blank so you can write new answers every time. The box has as an example "Name something you would not want to bite" with one answer being "The dust."

** Hell, the game even gives a list of how many green cards a player should gain to win the game based on how many people are playing. Very few people actually use that limit and just play until everybody agrees to stop.

Added DiffLines:

* LighterAndSofter: Apples to Apples Jr., which uses simpler words and more kid-friendly references that don't involve serious or tragic events.


* [[SoMyKidsCanWatch So My Kids Can Play]]: ''Apples to Apples Kids/Junior'', although the base game itself is rather tame.
** Well, until you consider just [[RefugeInAudacity how many]] [[CrossesTheLineTwice terrible]] [[BrainBleach mental images]] can be made via use of the "UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler" card, not to mention the "J.F.K. Assassination" card, the "Berlin 1945" card, the "Vietnam 1968" card, ''et cetera''.
*** Also, a lot of the pop culture references may be lost on young kids.

The position of judge rotates every round and the player who wins the round keeps the [[color:green:adjectives]] card for that round. Whoever has the most greens whenever everyone gets bored is the winner.

Added DiffLines:

* SelfDeprecation: The judge can deprecate themselves in some cases, because "My" cards (for example My Prom or My Room) have to apply to the judge and not the person who played them. This leads to being able to say things like "My Room is Disgusting" or "My Love Life is Imaginary."

Added DiffLines:

See also ''TabletopGame/CardsAgainstHumanity'', which takes the core gameplay of ''Apples to Apples'' and employs gratuitous amounts of BlackComedy.
