Family Game Night #Giveaway: Cranium Brain Breaks

One of my husband and my favorite things to do was host game night at our house. We have tons of board games and we would have a game night with friends at least twice a month. And then we had kids! Our box of games suddenly found a new place in a box on a shelf in the play room. One, most of our games are ones that the kids can't participate in. Two, my husband is always deployed. When he is back we like to play games that are quick and we can play once the kids go to bed. Luckily, Hasbro, creator of one of our most favorite games, Cranium, has just released a brand new Cranium that has 200 one minute mini games! PERFECT for my family. Here's the details:

Cranium Brain Breaks

Objective: Work together with other players to successfully complete as many activities as possible. See how many game cards can be collected in a row for some added excitement.

My Take: If you have ever played the original Cranium Game then you are going to love this game! It's played just the same but you don't have a game board! You still have the usual categories (creative cat, star performer, word worm, and data head) and you work with your partner or by yourself to complete each card in less than one minute. It's super quick and super fun! Here's an example of a card:
Work together to complete the challenge. I'm the sketch artist for this activity. I start the time and draw something you might find in a treasure chest. Everyone else tries to guess what I'm drawing before time runs out.

How fun is that? There are so many different ways to play the game and the best part is you can play while the kids are running around the house doing their own thing! Perfect for those of us with preschoolers. I can't wait to invite my neighbors over to play. I'm sure this is going to be the starting game for our first official game night when my husband returns!

Buy it: Cranium Breaks is available in most retail stores and sells for the SRP of $14.99.

Win it: Start planning your game night! I have one Cranium Brain Breaks to give away to one lucky reader. This giveaway will begin on October 8 and end on October 19. It is open to the US only. Just fill out the simple rafflecopter form to enter.
