Spot on Family Fun, Cranium !
~Last week we had a fun family night in our home. My Uncle and Aunt from California, my neice and her husband from Alaska, my sister and her husband from Tacoma, my daughter and her family from just down the road ! We had dinner, and played a game and ate snacks ! Family night !
~Here is the game of the night. Cranium .~~We are gathered around the table. The young folks, 35 years and under, versus us old folks...umm, older than 35 !
~ My niece's husband James , helping #1 Grandson mold the clue out of play dough.~ "You were born to play this game. ( Among other things of course )" quote on game box~ Favorite Son (in-law) using his wife, our daughter , as a puppet to act out the answer for his team. "To win this sideshow, choose a performer from your own team who can get you to guess the answer on the back of this card by moving a teammate's arms and legs like a puppet, with no talking or sound effects. The puppet can help guess the answer. " Note, the puppet does NOT know the answer. ~ My sister is the puppeteer, I am the puppet. I could not help laughing til I cried. I did not guess the answer as she swirled me around and moved my hands in front of and behind me, but my team guessed. The answer was THE HOKEY POKEY. ~ We had a fun family time, ate too much junk food, and (sigh......) us old folks lost the game TWICE ! Uncle Larry has vowed to catch up on some current trends in entertainment and music, I will pull this game out to play much more often. A real ice breaker that also helps you learn a little about the family you only think you know. The young, very young, and the oh not so old can play this game together, but I do recommend mixing the ages on the teams up a little. ~ Oh, Cranium did NOT pay me anything for this blog...but hey, Cranium ? Let's talk ! "This game is for adults or people who are 'adult like' " quote on game box
~" The happiest times of my life were spent in the bosom of my family."
