Last night, a bunch of our church friends helped Janice move in to her new apartment, and as a housewarming present, one of the guys bought her Cranium:


I've never played Cranium before, but it was so fun! It was like Taboo, Pictionary, Schrades, and Jeopardy all rolled into one.
One particular challenge I thought was really neat was "Team Gnilleps," in which your team has to spell a certain word backwards. Sounds easy, right? So did I, until they give you words like "amphibian" and "adrenaline."




Do you enjoy boardgames? What other games would you recommend for small gatherings?

Cranium is pretty fun, except I'll inevitably get the question wrong if it's a humdinger.

There are a number of German-style board games that are fun, such as Settlers, Power Grid, or Puerto Rico. The following list is generally very accurate, although some games might be a little too serious for casual company: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/browse/boardgame

Yeah, the humdinger is hard! Random songs...

And thanks for the website!

I played that game. The KCPC guys were shocked that my team correctly guessed what I did. It was that Dumb and Dumber scene with Jeff Daniels and his tongue. All thanks to you, Suh Michael!
