If you thought Cranium was strictly for board game geeks, better think again. Cranium Wow
is a seriously hip update of the world’s greatest ‘guess what I’m thinking?’
party game and it’s cooler than a fridgeful of frozen Fonzies!
Change hairdos and hats!
Just like other versions of Cranium, players must get busy singing
and generally acting the fool. The difference is the whole shebang looks incredibly ‘of-the-moment’ and features activities and trivia relevant to modern culture
. For example you might have to show off your knowledge of The Hoff, hum a White Stripes song, answer questions about a popular YouTube clip or use your best friend as a puppet to act out milking a cow. It’s crazier than a boxful of crazy things from Crazytown!
New fun gameboard!
As well as its topical angle and cool artwork, Cranium Wow features playing pieces inspired by designer toy
culture. Each quirky-looking figure
has its own profile and comes with an interchangeable hat or hairdo. This means that the people you play with most frequently can have personalized movers to match their own personalities. And while the box includes four colorful vinyl movers, there are a total of 12 out there (sold separately) to be collected.
Featuring 600 spanking new questions
sillier-than-ever activities, there’s more something-for-everyone fun than ever! And just like its not-so-streetwise sibling, Cranium Wow gives everyone a chance to shine – from aspiring actors and wordsmiths to tunesmiths, wannabe artists and trivia bores. What’s more, a twelve-year-old could beat a thirty-something. Which is really rather annoying. So we hear.
Cranium Wow adds a real element of cool to the Cranium franchise, and its topical slant makes it the board game that’s okay to admit playing, even for all you painfully hip gadgetmeisters out there. In a word, wow!
