In just a few days, we’re super excited to host Far From the Tree hard cider company! This Friday night, Far From the Tree is coming in to take over our newly upgraded 3 tap system with some of their unique craft ciders. Full event details can be found on our Facebook event page.
Summer’s coming to an end, but for those of you who still want to hold on to it as tightly as possible, we’ll have Lei, a pineapple and jalapeno cider on tap. If you’re like me, you probably can’t wait for fall to finally be here! The good news is that on one of our other taps we’ll have Ember, a brand new cider from Far From the Tree that is “aged on toasted chai spices, smoked vanilla beans and a touch of burnt sugar.” “But that’s only two of the three taps,” you might be declaring. Don’t worry, tap #3 is going to be a mystery! Not even we know what it’s going to be, but given Far From the Tree’s track record, it’s going to be excellent. If that wasn’t enough, they’ll also be bringing in some cans of the ciders our taps don’t have room for. It’s bound to be a fun filled night complete with delicious hard ciders paired with excellent board games!
If you’re looking for Apple themed games, we only have a few that fit the bill.
Apples to Apples (as well as Apples to Apples Kids) is a party game about comparisons! Each round, one player plays as the judge and lays out a green card with an adjective on it. Every other player chooses a red card from their hand of 5 cards that they think is the best (or funniest) comparison for that adjective. Once everyone has played a card, the judge gathers all the submitted red cards (face down), shuffles them, reveals them, and then chooses the best comparison. That card wins the round, gets to keep the green card, and becomes the judge for the next round.
Sour Apples to Apples is very similar, but it introduces a few new changes to the original game. Instead of a deck of green cards and a deck of red cards, there is only one deck of cards and each card has a green and a red side. Each round the judge picks a card from their hand to be the green card for that round. At the end of the round when the judge picks the best comparison they also get to pick which card was the worst comparison! The player who submitted the worst card has to spin the sour apple to determine their fate for the next turn or longer! It’s a fun twist on an old classic.
