Cranium Brain Breaks - Game Review and Giveaway

My family and I enjoy playing games.  There's a space in my closet for our variety of games and we like to get them out to play.  I feel that playing games together as a family fosters bonding and sportsmanship.  We recently received Cranium Brain Breaks from Hasbro and, although we haven't had time to play all the 200 games yet, we've been entertained with the ones we've tried.

New from the Cranium line, Cranium Brain Breaks is a collection of 200 different games that can each be played in sixty seconds.  The classic categories of Creative Cat, Word Worm, Star Performer and Data Head can be found in this compact case of games.  The object of the game is to work together with other players to successfully complete as many activities as possible.  Players draw from a deck and try to successfully complete the activity in the allotted sixty seconds.  For example, a Creative Cat card might instruct a player to make a paper airplaine and fly it through a ring made out of clay that another player constructs, all within sixty seconds.

All game pieces for Cranium Brain Breaks have their own slot inside a brain-shaped case.  Activity cards, dye, paper, clay, and a timer are the pieces used to play the game.  Some of the cards require players to act and spell while others require players to sculpt and draw.  For 2 to 4 people, players can either go against each other or play on a team.  Cranium Brain Breaks is probably one of the most amusing games we've played as a family.  It requires us to think fast on our feet.

Win It!

One person will win Cranium Brain Breaks.

My family are huge fans of many of Hasbro's products. We have game night once a week.
As far as wish products, my whole life I personally have dreamed of owning the full size Star Wars At-At walker (i tried building a model in college and only succeeded in glueing a significant amount of skin to the side). BUT for my boys, I know they are dying to own the Kre-O Transformers sets (any). They are also super huge Beyblade fans.
I also have a littler man who i think would really enjoy Weebles or the Elmo or Cookie Monster Find & Learn Alphabet or Number Blocks.
Thank you for creating this site!
