You were born to play this game.
Maybe you've always wanted to use your best friend as a puppet to act out "milking a cow." Or you want to prove you can draw "bed head" with your eyes closed. Perhaps you're eager to show off your vast knowledge of "The Hoff," YouTube, and which came first, the toaster or sliced bread. If any of these are true - and even if they're not - you need to play Cranium WOW immediately. You shouldn't wait to show off your hidden talents when they're so impressive.
Cranium WOW features 600 brand-new-we-swear-you've-never-seen-them-before-unless-you-peeked-somehow cards and new movers so cool you might forget to actually play the game for a little while (but we hope you'll eventually remember).
What's in the box? Cranium WOW includes:
• a game board
• 600 new cards
• a 10-sided die (the 9-sided die wasn't working)
• a tub of purpley-fresh Cranium Clay
• a timer
• drawing pads
• presharpened pencils
• 4 customizable character movers with interchangeable hats and hairdos, and sass.
My first introduction to Cranium was with this game. Unlike lots of other people I know, I had never played any of the other versions of Cranium before so my first experience of it was with the Cranium WOW version.
After playing this game just once, I loved it so much that I went out and brought a copy for myself straight away!
We have regular pot-luck dinners with lots of friends and this game is the perfect thing to do and play in a setting like that. I don't think any of us laugh as much as we do when we all play this game! We have also taken it to extended family reunions where it met with lots of success also so I would say that this game works well with a whole range of ages, from teens through to grandparents.
This game reminds me of pictionary (which I played when I was a kid) but with some great added features. Of which one of my favorites the 'Humdinger' cards; the cards where the person from your team that is playing has a song that they have to hum in order for their team mates to guess what that song is. Now try doing that without laughing! Another cool feature is that for the 'counters' that move around the board there are little figurines that you can personalize with different hairdos, hats, etc.
Overall I would say that this game is a fantastic team building game and is also great to use as an icebreaker if there are some new faces in the group. I would highly recommend it!
This new release has a seriously funky new foldout-cross board and a whole new set of cards... and the best bit, a new pottle of Cranium Clay to replace the old, highly over-used-to-death pot!
Though on the face of it the game has undergone a huge revamp, it still has the same huge amount of fun packed into the box, fueled by the imaginations of the players. The more nutty your mates are, the more laughter will be generated... so it might not be smart to play it in the same house as sleeping kids.
Overall, same game, great new design and all-new questions! What more could you ask for, if you have stared at your friends' games cupboard in envy, or your old game is starting to look a bit ratty from over-(ab)use. There's a few little bonues extras this time around though, in particular the player pieces are now little cranium blobby people designed by Gary Baseman with an assortment of hair and hat options you can choose from to personalise them.
This was just as much fun this time around as it ever was. The new cards means that those of us who play this game almost religiously have no advantage over newer players now, which made the game a lot more fun in a "aww damn!" kinda way. Other than the funky new cross-shaped board and the slightly edgier colour scheme the biggest boost came from the new playpieces. Nifty little lightbulb men with a bag full of headgear you can use to make them different each time you play. It almost beats our old trick of making our own playpieces out of the purple orange-smelling clay but at least this way we have all the putty to use for sculpturades questions.
All in all, lots of fun with some additions and nothing taken out. By definition an improvement over the old version.
