The game that makes you use your whole brain!

  What makes this game fun and unique is the way that it mixes up the action and gets everyone involved to try something new.  It combines the best of other popular games and keeps the fun moving at a fast pace.  The "Data Head" section is like playing Trivial Pursuit.  The "Creative Cat" is a lot like Pictionary, but with the added twist  of possibly drawing clues with your eyes closed or maybe even sculpting something with the provided clay.  "Star Performer" is like playing Charades and "Word Worm" is part spelling bee, part Crossword Puzzle...  
  So it is like playing the best of 4 or 5 different games and it truly challenges  you to push your comfort zone.  Maybe trivia is not your strong suit or maybe your drawing abilities are lacking, but in this game, you will have to try your best!   It levels the playing field at the same time because your trivia expert friends can only dominate one part of the game and the same is true for your bookworm crossword puzzle types or the actors in the bunch.  You have to jump in and explore different parts of your brain...yes...your Cranium!  Much like the way www.lunch.com combines elements of Twitter, Facebook, Myspace and Wikipedia; Cranium takes the best of other popular games but wraps it all up in one shiny box.

I have to admit, the idea of playing games like Pictionary usually makes my skin crawl, but I'm somewhat intrigued by your review. I may have to give it a try.
