Cranium is great fun for the whole family. I know that sounds terribly cliched, but it's true! I've never had so much fun in one hour. Even if you're not good at something- let's say sculpting- you'll find yourself laughing as you try to form a tiny teaset with blue claydough.
Cranium never lets down. It's fast-paced, with each team doing silly things (at the end of each round is when the fun happens and all the teams do something very silly- act out a John Cleese sketch, imitate the alphabet, or make charades of a butternut squash). The rivalry is always friendly, and it's a fairly simple game- get to the centre first with your little coloured peg and win, accomplishing tasks along the way. It's a colourful adventure, and one will find themselves playing with the family or friends far into the night.
Cranium is overall of incredible quality. The games are each a perfect length (two times round is about equal with a trip to the cinemas) of about an hour. Everyone can play- the end result is a fabulously funny party game for all ages.
