We spent 24 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. Founded by a pair of erstwhile Microsoft employees in 1998, Cranium has since evolved into one of the most beloved brands in board gaming. "The Game for Your Whole Brain" and its many expansions and spin-offs have something to offer for everyone, regardless of age, intelligence, or particular gaming interest. What they all share is the capacity to sharpen players' skills in creativity and recall. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work.
