Cranium comes with the Cranium board, 800 outrageous cards, a tub of cool Cranium Clay, a ten-sided Cranium die, a timer, Cranium pads and pencils, and four Cranium play pieces. Actual brains not included!

|Fun party game if you are looking to have a good time with your friends and they want a fun action game get this one.
|Great game to play with friends. Test you knowledge, creativity, and lots more!
|Cranium has become a classic party game, it bring the fun elements of other classic party games together for a hilarious time. Fun for the whole family.
|A great break from the brain burner games. Cut loose with humming/whistling, charades, clay sculpting, and trivia questions. Good with more people and teams of 3+.
|This is a great game for a party, because it rips off of a bunch of different games most people already know how to play! There's Pictionary, charades, impersonations, anagrams, modelling clay-Pictionary, simplified Trivial Pursuit, etc. It's also pretty recognizable in its own rights today, so even easy to teach and play with guests.
|This is NOT your mom and dad's board game! Best for parties and family gatherings like X'mas, Turkey Day and New Year's Eve! Pull up your sleeves and get ready to draw, sculpt, think, act out, hum, impersonate and think some more (and sometimes, with a timer) in this madcap game of all games!
|Great game. We play together as a family during the holidays. It is also fun when we get together for a couples night. It always gets quite heated when we play Men vs Women even though the women usually end up winning...
|The ultimate party game! What I like so much about this game is how diverse the tasks are. Many party games are singly focused. People who don't feel like they can draw anything feel like they can't play Pictionary. People who don't know trivia hate Trivial Pursuit. People who are shy usually can't stand charades. People who are linguistically challenged often are made to feel dumb by word games like Taboo. This game is good for any group because the artist, the actor, the shy person, the vocab junky, the trivia expert, the sculptor, the music fanatic....all of them will have tasks they can get enjoyment out of and feel like they are a successful at. I highly recommend this game or its junior version for use with withdrawn or low self-esteem kids and adolescents. It's great at bringing them out of their shell and making them feel capable and successful even if they end up losing.
|This game is great for families and small parties. My favorite part is the sculpting charades - it's really challenging and almost always hilarious. The hardest category for my group is the music trivia ( we don't know much about pop ) but we still have a great time making up our own songs or music videos when we have to!
