This is a firm favourite for all of us. The good thing is that our youngest can win just as easily as us less young, and he always asks to play this before any other board game. Very entertaining, and it doesn't go on for ever ( think Monopoly....)so we tend to say yes without groaning.
Its good for kids from maybe 6 or 7 up. Good family fun.

Having already purchased three different Cranium games I was worried that this new version would not live up to my expectations. Fortunately I was wrong and my husband and I have had a lot of fun playing this game with my two grown up children and friends. I would recommend this game for anyone who doesn't mind making a fool of themselves in front of others and enjoys testing their acting ,sculpting ,drawing and knowledge skills.

To be quite frank I honestly think this is one of the best board games you can buy. If you have enough willing victims to form two or more teams then you're good to go. For those of you who've never played cranium before the game consists of each team completing one of four different types of challenge. These are:

Star Performer - a member of your team may have to demonstrate whistling skills, play charades or be used as a 'puppet' by a fellow team member.
Data Head - You are asked a open question, a multiple choice question, or a true / false question
Word Worm - Your team will have to solve an anagram, spell words backwards or define the meaning of words
Creative Cat - A team member will have to draw out an answer with their eyes open or closed and sculpt something with playdough. This is my favourite category as you get a chance to flex your creative muscles.
Occasionally there are rounds where all teams must take part and compete to get the answer right first.

This board can be folded out into three different sizes, small, medium or large, depending on the length of time you want to play for. The rules of this game are really simple and will be picked up incredibly quickly, it keeps people thinking and people genuinely enjoy it. There are a few less arguments than monopoly but like any good board game some disputes will arise over whether your opponents were cheating or not.

Now go and buy this game and don't look back.

I cannot understand these reviews! eg a 12 year old is expected to ''draw' Beethoven. American terms, knowledge etc - why is there not a UK edition?

My adult sons were not even born when Fiddler on the roof came out. We fished through all the cards and could only use a fraction of them - it does say from 12 upwards and this is just not correct.

Can someone explain why the artist is supposed to draw with their eyes closed???? It is now with the charity bag.

The concept is very good which is why we bought it - it caters for a group of creatives, thinkers, extroverts etc rather than single skills eg scrabble.

Great fun. Lots of variety in the activities. Really loved the humdingers where you hum a song and the others guess what it is, lots of giggles. The drawing was fun too especially the blind drawing. The guesses can be hilarious. The charades were great too. Lots of fun great for parties.

This is a great game for all the family - from humming songs, to miming, charades, creating figures with plasticine... I would really recommend this game, almost up there with Taboo!

However I would note that the cards and questions are very modern and based on current children's programmes (e.g. Dora the Explorer) so if there are a bunch of adults playing with no children, you might want to try the adult version of Cranium.

This is the best board game I have ever played, which I bought after playing it at a friend's house. I have had it just over a year now and it never gets old. It is a combination of charades, articulate, Pictionary, trivial pursuit and so much more. Because it has such a range of questions (involving humming, acting, impersonating, drawing, drawing with eyes closed, modelling out of clay, anagrams, general knowledge, etc etc etc) there really is something for everyone, and everyone will be good at at least one type of question. There are 3 lengths of game depending on how much time you have and how much fun you can take. Anyone who has been dubious about playing at the start always ends up loving it. I have always played with groups of 20 - 30 year olds and it really is a great laugh. Put your tablet, tv, iphone down and play this game - definitely worth it.

Never experienced such variety from a board game.
Humming a tune to your team mate, then making something out of playdoh, next answering a general knowledge question. Also very good that there are 3 board sizes for quick, medium or long games. After 2 games of the longest version (takes around 1 - 1 1/2 hours / game), we swapped to the medium sized board (taking more like 30 min - 1 hour) and found this one more suited to us.
Great fun for all ages (16+ according to the manufacturer); especially in larger groups/teams (min 4 players required).
Great for a laugh with friends.
