This version of the game simply differs in offering a goofier and less knowledge-based version of the game. Kids don't know what could be funny about the Pittsburg Steelers or Kubla Khan, nor do they know the meaning of 4-syllable adjectives. If you're trying to educate kids while having fun you may want to stick with Apples to Apples "regular", but this Junior editioin is fantastic for family entertainment.
A great game for the whole family! There is nothing "junior" about it except the contents of the cards. It plays the same as the origianal, but while the original has many names and events that children do not recognize, this version has words on their level.
