Another edition of the world-famous, popular word game for 2 to 4 players for when you’re on the go!
This is a version of Scrabble for players aged 5-12 featuring a double-sided board. The introductory version resembles more a crossword puzzle in which all the possible words have already been spelled out. This is an aid to learning about spelling. Points are earned by completing words. The reverse side is an entirely blank grid , leaving players to come up with their own words. A point is earned for each letter placed. Letters are formed from cardboard tiles and do not have values.
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.
