It’s the most wonderful time of year again – International Games Day!
I gaming – any type of gaming, but my favorite is that old standard, the board game. I grew up with Monopoly, Life, Sorry, Scrabble, Connect 4, Pictionary, Trivial Pursuit, and so on. Nowadays, I prefer games like Munchkin and Settlers of Catan, but I still have a soft spot for the classics.
A great game that encompasses various aspects of some of those classic games is Cranium. It’s kind of like Pictionary. But it’s also kind of Trivial Pursuit. And it’s a bit like Charades. And those word puzzles you find in the newspaper. Also, there’s playdough. You see, there are four categories and, as you move around the board, you draw hints, answer questions, solve puzzles, or perform clues within your team.
That’s why I love this game; it allows each player to utilize their own talents. I love it so much, in fact, that I’m creating a LIFE-SIZE version of the game playable on International Games Day (Saturday, November 21) at 11:00 AM in Meeting Room A. Register here! And, while you’re signing up for Life-Size Cranium, check out the other great games and tournaments we’re offering that day!
