The subjects are different. The Jr. version has words like, "playgrounds," "gummi bears," "sunshine," "Big Bird," etc. We can all play it, although we prefer the regular version.
The regular version has political, historical and literary references, ("Berlin-1945" "Ernest Hemingway," "Paying Taxes," etc.) as well as things like "Going to Grandma's," "Choir Boys," and "Icebergs." My 7 yr/old doesn't always get the connections, but it makes for good discussions. There are a few different ways to play--one alternative is to have everyone throw out their answer card BEFORE hearing the question--it can be pretty funny, playing "blind" this way, and it evens the playing field for my youngest when he plays with his teenaged sibs and I.
