The favorite family game filled with wacky activities.


The newest version boasts 600 new playing cards and a Family Pack! View larger.

A Colorful, Silly, Creative Game
Cranium Classic has long been known for its goofy, unpredictable activities, challenging even the most well-rounded players to step up their game. This latest version includes 600 updated playing cards--making the adventures all-new again--and the bonus Family Pack is a shoe-in for family-only game nights.

Though the game features new playing cards, gameplay is still the same--roll the 10-sided, colorful die, pick the matching colored card, and complete the activity listed to advance to the next Planet Cranium. Once you get to Cranium Central, successfully complete the final task and lead your team to victory! The bright, fun colors and cartoonish characters only add to the overall silliness and goofiness of the game, encouraging those playing to let their guard down and have a good time.

Build It, Sing It, Perform It, Draw It
Cranium is great for large groups or events--whether it's a party, a reunion, or just even a family game night. The game constantly challenges players in trivia and creativity, creating a fun and spontaneous atmosphere.

However, keep in mind this particular version of Cranium is designed for ages 16 and up, so if you have younger children, you may want to play one of the other versions. There is also a warning listed about the clay containing wheat--just a thoughtful heads-up for anyone with wheat allergies.

What's in the Box
Game board, 600 cards, 10-sided die, two tubs of clay, timer, pencils and paper pads, four play pieces, and a 60-card bonus Family Pack.

A fun board game to play with friends or the family.
evan israel schwartz
While Cranium is easy to learn and easy to play, it is also provides a variety of tasks that should prove challenging to the average game team.

Childbirth? Flash dance? Nope--volcano. This particular Cranium moment has become immortalised in our family's Hilarity Hall of Fame, thanks to the wonderful, charades performance of my brother-in-law... Kudos to Cranium for creating this game--and a whole family of other great games (many of which we also own).

While Cranium is easy to learn and easy to play, it is also provides a variety of tasks that should prove challenging to the average game team. What is your strength? Spelling? What is your weakness? Trivia? And your teammates? What about the other team(s)? Where one team looses ground, they are sure to pick it up when the tasks turn in their favour.

Although the game can be played with several smaller teams, our experience has been that having only two groups with larger team sizes often produces some of the most enjoyable rounds. Cranium has been a hit at small family gatherings, large family reunions, and at parties full of relative (and total) strangers. I highly recommend this game to anyone who likes to express themselves and just have fun!

This game is hysterical! Our family has so much fun playing this game, from tweens through grandma. The younger kids love to play too, if you explain some of the older references.

I think cranium is a very well made game, but it might not be for everyone.

CONS:
-sometimes the material is not well known enough for the general public (e.g., songs from the 60's will be lost on the 20 and under crowd)
-sometimes it feels like the game can drag on for too long
-not as easy to get into as some other fast paced party games (taboo, pictionary, etc.)

PROS:
-Highly polished game. It does not feel cheap at all.
-Great for BIG groups. It increases the chance of people knowing the material.
-High hilarity value if you have the right mix

If you know this game will suit the party you will bring it to, then buy it. Great for church events, lockins, retreats, and any audience where you have a large pool of people.

My bf and I had so much fun playing this game over the holidays. We had fun playing it with his 16 yr old daughter and her friend, we had fun playing it with a big group of people at a New Year's party. Mostly I think we had SO MUCH fun because we are very good at it and are the undefeated champions, but even people we played with who never got past the first 1/4 of the board had a lot of fun playing it.

On the plus side, this game is a lot of fun and a lot of laughs.

On the minus side, the rules of the game are a bit complicated. In some ways they seem quite counterintuitive. Like, people assume that you roll the die, move, and then read a card. But noooo, another team reads a card for you, then you try to complete a task or answer a question or guess a charade or whatever and IF you get it right, THEN you roll the die. But, a lot of the cards are for ALL teams to play, and then you have to keep track of which team got that card and who gets to do what when that card is played out and whether a team gets onto the inside track or not when they landed on "cranium" and...well really I think the rules are complex, especially with a room full of 12 people playing the game, and you may find people get confused about whether it's a card everyone plays so they should be trying to guess the answer or whether it is only another team playing and they should be quiet. You may also find that it is very hard to play charades or something similar when there are four people trying to act out the same character or thing.

Oh, and another thing to note, you probably want to set aside the cards you've already used. If the cards you've already used get mixed in to the boxes it can be a pain to have someone start reading a card and then "oh, we already had that one!

This is much better than regular trivia games. It is a combination of charades, trivial pursuit, and pictionary. Some questions are quite difficult for non-Americans.

I bought this expecting the full cranium game pictured, but instead was sent the less expensive "party" version, which is much smaller and usually only about $14. Paying almost $50 for this, I expected to get the large, full version that is shown. Buyer beware.

Good thing amazon and phenomenal customer service and issued me a return shipping label right away. Would not buy from this seller again though.

Do not play this game or it will cause your relationship to suffer!

We had a neighborhood party about 6 weeks ago and someone said "lets play a game" There were four couples there and someone came up with the great idea to make it men vs women. Big mistake. Huge mistake. My life will never be the same.

I ended up on the men's team, which is good because last time I checked I am still a man, so naturally I tried to do my best to support my team. Things were going pretty well the first game, but obviously one team had to win, which left one team that did not win. Without saying which team won or lost, all I can say is all of a sudden the women's team got kinda mad and started getting very confrontational. I said "lets stop playing this game and play something else" but they wanted nothing to do with that idea and demanded a rematch. The night ended with one team winning 3-0. Not a good week at my house.

A week goes by and the women want a rematch. Against my better judgment we played again. Another couple joined us this time. After three more games we end up at 6-0, and I prepare for another bad week at home. Aren't these games supposed to be fun? Aren't they designed to bring you closer to your friends and spouse? Why isn't it working?

A few more weeks go by and we could not avoid a rematch any longer, so we played again. One couple did not make it, but still another couple joined in. Much better result because of the three games we played, the women won 2 of them. It was kinda weird because they wanted to reset the games counter and kept saying the new score was women 2, men 1. But really it was men 7, women 2. Why is it that they could not see this?
