Cranium is an excellent game that embodies all the best aspects of board games--it doesn't last too long (about an hour for a game), it's exciting and funny and it also relies on the chance element as well as skill. The game is played by two or more teams of one or more players and the object is to get round the board into the Cranium Central area and be the first team to complete the activities there. Easy, isn't it? To do this, each team has to complete an activity, the selection of which depends on the square they last landed on--but it has to be completed before the egg timer runs out. There are also two routes to follow--the fast route (only available if you complete your first activity within the time) and the scenic route for those who don't. The activities are split into four groups: "Creative Cat", which asks, amongst other things, that you sculpt a miniature tea set out of clay--or draw a picture of baked beans on toast (with your eyes closed, of course). Then there is "Data Head"--do you know where the saying "back to square one" originates? Did Thomas Crapper really invent the flushing toilet? Another activity is the "Word Worm"--can you spell words backwards or solve puzzles with a cryptic clue such as "nervous neckwear"? Finally, there is the "Star Performer" activity (all families have one or two in this category.) Get them to emulate a John Cleese sketch or act "a back seat driver". When a team reaches Cranium Central, they have to complete one activity from each activity category to win. --Ben KingSee all Product Description

I went away on the annual family holiday armed with this board game and I can honestly say it's the most family fun we've had in a long time. The best thing about it is the diversity of the challenges - clay modelling, drawing, charades, spelling, humming, puzzles, general knowledge to name but a few, it's certainly not easy to get bored with it. I expected we would have a game one evening but we ended up giving up the nightly trip to the pub/club to stay in, get the drinks in and get this game out, it was hilarious fun. Age is no obstacle either, my two nieces of 8 and 10 played, along with myself (24), my partner (30), my parents (57 & 60) and even my Grandad of 85 had a go.
One of my nieces has now asked for the game for Christmas and I know it'll be a good buy as it's a game that will come out of the cupboard time and time again... well worth every penny!
The aim of the game is to get round the board (no change there) but the way you do it is where the fun starts. There are four colours you can land on. Red (questions, multiple choice etc.), Yellow (anagrams, spelling forwards and backwards, fill in the blanks etc.), Blue (drawing, sculpting etc.) and Green (acting, singing etc.).
Each team takes turns to move round the board and they have to take a card and perform the action from the tile they land on. If they win the challenge (one or more people guesses what the other is doing/drawing/singing etc.) and if they get it right they move on. You can also get Club Cranium cards which means every team performs the same card and the first team to guess it move on.
I can see this easily going down as one of the classic board games of all time along side Monopoly and Scrabble. There are already two booster packs for the game, the second of which contains four tubs of cranium clay so there is now the option for Club Cranium Sculptorades). The only problem with this game is that you need at least four people to play it, it is definitely a "more the merrier" style game with no limit to the number of players you can have (a maximum of four teams but no limit to the number of team members).
In conclusion, you can't go wrong. As long as you're over the age of eight (some of the challenges would be too difficult to younger children e.g. impersonate Margaret Thatcher, hum House Of The Rising Sun or spell "photosynthesis" backwards) then you'll have no end of fun playing this game. A must for any family gathering or drunken student party!
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.
