Cranium

CraniumSpell a word backwards, hum a tune, answer a multiple-choice question, draw with your eyes closed, and more when you play Cranium. Unlike games that focus on only a few skills, Cranium offers 14 talent-tapping activities designed to bring out the best in you and your friends.

Cards from four decks, color-coded to match each of the crazy characters – Star Performer, Creative Cat, Data Head, and Word Worm – describe activities that teams must complete in order to advance around the board. If you choose a Sculptorades card from the Creative Cat deck, for example, you might be asked to sculpt a hamburger from lemon-scented Cranium Clay while your teammates try to guess what you're creating. To win the game, teams have to make it to Cranium Central – the large purple brain in the center of the board – and then successfully complete one activity from each of the four decks. The result is that the team with the best combination of abilities comes out on top.

With its wonderfully diverse set of activities and top-notch design (artwork by illustrator Gary Baseman decorates the colorful board and decks of cards), Cranium offers the best of all board game experiences–and it's a whole lot of fun, too!
