The game’s theme is based on answering questions relating to popular advertising logos and brands. Players move their pawns around a spiraling board for answering questions correctly relating to a logo, until they get to the Winning Zone at the centre of the board. Movement depends on the successful answering of questions to proceed to the next coloured area on the board.

Cranium WOW includes an all new gameboard, 600 new cards with 15 fun activities (we promise), a 10-sided die (the 9-sided die just wasn’t working), a tub of lovely, lovely cranium clay, a timer, pads, pencils, 4 new character movers with custom hats and hairdos, and sass. Cranium is a roll and move game with four distinct decks of cards that have the players perform, answer trivia, sculpt, and use their knowledge of popular culture to advance through the board to the center. It is a very fun game and is designed for adults, or people who are “adult-like”.

Party Alias features four major updates to the original game in terms of gameplay–these are all in terms of categories on the cards:

Book: Here, players must tell a story using all the words on the card
Smiley: Here the players must explain the words depicting a specific feeling (e.g. embarrassed, angry, happy, crying, afraid, drunk, depressed, and hysterical)
Pose: Here the player must create unusual poses
Camera: Here the player must try to describe a celebrity

Try to get your partner to say as many words from a particular category written on the cards within the thirty second time limit, you may only pass once. Move your team pawn forward a number of spaces on the board equal to the number of words you got correct. If you land on an Orange or Red space, spin the spinner for a chance to move yourself 2 or 3 spaces forward, or move an opponent piece 2 or 3 spaces back. If you land on a spade space, try to get you team mate to say the word on the card before any other team can say it. Whoever answers correctly gets a turn immediately.
Categories include Person, World, Object, Action, Nature and Random. First team to make it around the board and successfully answer a spade category (chosen from any of the above) wins the game.
