Hebrew Apples to Apples
Last night I was visited by the folks of Kinder Shpiel, makers of Jewish and Yiddish board games including Apples to Apples Yiddish Edition. We talked about what is needed for a Hebrew edition (actually, several editions), and I'm going to be trying to make the cards for the first one. Along with the help of my teenage children and all of their friends.
I also played The Menorah Game with them, and they loved it. I hope it will inspire them to create more games for adults; most of their product line is kid's games.
