Cranium makes a wide variety of games, and many of them are favorites in our house.  They have just come out with a brand new game, Cranium Brain Breaks.  This is a collection of 200 different games that can each be played in 60 seconds.  Many of the categories in this game are familiar from previous Cranium games, including Creative Cat, Word Worm, Star Performer and Data Head.  Plus it comes in a cool brain shaped case.

The object of the game is to work together with other players to complete as many activities as possible.  Speed is the name of the game – a player draws a card and has only 60 seconds to complete the activity with the other players.  The fast action leads to lots of laughter and excitement.  My kids like the Star Performer category best, where they act out the words on the card while the rest of us try to guess what they are doing.

Cranium Brain Breaks piecesOne of the nice things about this game is that the players decide how long the game will go on.  Since each game can be played in 60 seconds, the length of the game is customizable.  It is nice to have a fun game that doesn’t take all night to play.  Many times we want to play a family game, but by the time we eat dinner and clean up there just isn’t time for a long game.  Cranium Brain Breaks is perfect for nights like that.  This game is recommended for ages 8 and up, which is about right.  You could adapt it so younger children could participate, but being able to read the cards is important to the game.
