When all else fails… Cranium!

When Wurstfest was too far of a drive, the Union bowling alley had a 45 min wait for a lane, and Peter Pan mini-golf was cash-only, we headed home to play CRANIUM!

It’s a team game where one partner has to depict what’s on their card through humming a tune,

playing charades,

sketching a drawing, or solving a word problem for his/her partner to guess. The first team to get land on the brain in the middle of the board and complete one task from each of the four categories WINS!

Elyse and Oren celebrated their victory over the other two teams, and everyone had a great time making fools out of themselves!

    Great post. I think that many times people do not realize the amount of fun that can be had with good ol’ board games.

    This is such a cute idea! In my apartment, we have a board game corner and some of the most fun nights we’ve had here have involved staying in and pulling those out.

    I love the videos, Erin! Board games always make for great back-up plans when other stuff doesn’t work out.

    Fact: I have never lost at Cranium (although I usually am able to pick pretty good partners.) Good report, BTW!
