Apples to Apples game day

The fifth annual Apples to Apples game day and book swap was held at the Bismarck Public Library Monday.

The event was started five years ago by the library’s teen volunteer board that wanted to host something fun for youth to do in the winter.

An Apples to Apples game day is what they came up with and has been held every President’s Day since.

Apples to Apples is a board game that matches nouns to adjectives.

Last year, about 16 kids were in attendance with a drop to three this year.

St. Anne’s eighth-grader Hailey Wanner played Apples to Apples with Simle seventh- grader Kade Langemo and freshman Nathan Gedrose, who has been attending the event for three years.

“I like it because you get to meet different people and see what their personalities are like,” Wanner said.
