We are once again presented with a fruit-like cloth bag, this one, true to its name, looking not like a banana, not like a pear, but everso clearly apple-like. Inside the bag: letter tiles of similar quality to the Banagram tiles ivory-like, pleasing to the touch and to the smushing around but thick enough to stand on end, and a comparatively long two-sided rule sheetlet. Players each get 9 tiles. The first player makes a word out of her tiles as many as she can use and places them in the center of the table.
The next player adds yet another word. Note, however, that the words must create a chain, no tile touching more than two other letters. This results in an intriguingly different, and easier to play Scrabble-type game. And on and on until someone uses all her tiles, winning the game. Apple Turnover is a bit more challenging, and designed for players who are at least seven years old. The third game is played for score. There are two mentally exacerbating differences.
First, there are the 5-point bonus score possibilities: if your word is eight or more letters, or if your word is a palindrome it can read backwards and forwards.
Here, you have to take turns. So the games tend to be longer, and more contemplative, and more challenging for the patience-impaired.
