Very much a childs game, kinda like connect four in a way. Very fun and quick to play. It's also a hands on type of game combining basic charades, pictionary, sculpting, and others.

Proved very usefull as a warm up game to the adult version, Cranium.

Being a big kid at heart, I am always looking for ways to entertain kids. This game is perfect. The game rules are relatively easy to pick up and understand. Average game-play duration is good too, at only about a half-hour per game. REALLY good for people with short attention spans. (innocent grin)

The only small problem I could see was with the scavenger hunt cards, but as already described, that was dealt with by a slight rule alteration.

Needless to say, I had an absolute BLAST playing this game, and am thinking seriously of buying a copy for myself.

OK, it's aimed at kids aged 7 and up... but I think it's a wonderful game for players of any age! With elements of Pictionary, Charades, Connect 4, Go, Scavenger Hunt, Trivial Pursuits, Eye Spy, plus lots more... this has to be the most spectacular game I have played in years.

It caters to both sides of your brain, as well as your fun gland. With the main 'connect 4' element controlling the gameplay, you end up with short games that will hold the kids attention, but long enough to keep them from getting bored with any repetition.

I simply must comment on the Cranium Putty. This purple putty dough feels subtly different from most other putty you may have encountered. It also has a delightful tangy orange/citrus scent. The smell doesn't linger, but it will be attractive to kids.

I was a little worried when it came to the 'Quick Find' as my opponent was mobility challenged. The 'Quick Find' cards are like miniature scavenger hunts, and with a wheelchair to try an get through doorways, within a tight time limit, it was a logistical nightmare. But after some thought on the matter, a modification to the rules was proposed that worked wonderfully.

The player can name an item, and if it within reach for someone without the disability, it can be considered 'collected'. If they are at someone else's residence, the host would be honest and admit if the item is within reasonable distance.

Overall, I really enjoyed playing this game, and look forward to playing it with greater numbers. I also plan to donate a copy to my son's class when he turns 7... so I still have a bit of time to buy an extra set. :)
