Product Description
Includes game board (regular version and speedy version), 32 questions for four different categories: Sabelotodo (facts/culture, etc), Gato Creativo (sculpting with clay), Las Estrellas (acting), and Gusano de Palabras (spelling). These partiulcar questions are over La familia, Interrogatives, La Casa, Los Quehaceres, y La Ropa.

You will need paper or notepads for each team, clay or playdough for each team, a pencil for each team, dice, timer (students can use phones or can purchase from, and game pieces.


Divide into teams of two or more. Each team chooses a game piece and places it on the purple Planet Cranium.

Give each team a pad and pencil.

Now you’re ready to play Cranium!

Set out the four category cards:

Set out the die, timer, and playdough or clay.

Cranium is the outrageously fun party game for four or more players that will get you and your team sculpting, acting, puzzling, and even spelling backwards to win!

The object of the game is to be the first team to move clockwise around the board and into Cranium Central, where your team will attempt its final activity for the win!

On your first turn, and every time you’re on a purple Planet Cranium, you get to choose the category.

In Cranium you roll at the END of your turn, after you have successfully completed an activity.

If you’re successful...Roll the die and move to the next color indicated on the die. You must stop on every purple Planet Cranium even if your roll would otherwise take you past it. If you roll purple, zoom ahead to the next Planet Cranium.

Your turn is now over. Play passes to your left. If you don’t succeed... Don’t roll or move. You must wait until your next turn and try again. Your turn is now over.

On every Planet Cranium you have a chance to get on the fast track. If your team is successful on the first activity you do on the Planet Cranium, hop on the inner fast track. Otherwise, take the outer scenic path. (Only available on the long version, not the speedy version)

Your team does the activity described on the card.

The team to your right draws your card and reads it aloud to you. Your card is drawn from the character card box that matches the colored space your team’s game piece is on.

ON YOUR TURN At the start of the game, the team with the person whose birthday is coming up next goes first.

Enter the Cranium Circle on a roll at the end of a turn. Move to the name of the character card box that matches the color on the die.

If you roll purple, you can choose your starting point on the circle.

Now wait for your next turn.

Each time you successfully complete an activity in the Cranium Circle, keep the card, move clockwise to the next category, and wait until your next turn to do an activity from that box.

If you are not successful, stay where you are and try again on your next turn.

If your team is the first to successfully complete an activity in Cranium Central, congratulations! You’ve won Cranium!
