Playing cranium is like opening up a box of choclates, you never know what you are going to get. The great thing about cranium is that is tests many different levels of the brain, from simple data questions, to grammer and word puzzles, it even has a clay in which you can mold sculptures. It just doesn't focus on a certain part of knowledge but rather on the whole spectrum. Another great feature of the game is that its a team-based game, meaning that no one is ever playing alone. Pairing up with your best friend, or even a total stranger can lead to a hilarious evening filled with lots of joy and laughter. The object of the game is to finish the circle around the board before the other members, but the real object is just to have fun and enjoy the company of the other opponents.
