it's time to break out the brainpower! Hasbro and Funko Games have teamed up to bring us the ultimate anniversary edition of Cranium, plus three new versions to keep our noggins in tip-top shape.
This Spring, we'll see the 25th Anniversary edition of Cranium hit the shelves, and this Summer, we'll get our hands on the new Cranium Big Brain: Detective Game, Cranium Hullabaloo, and Cranium Hoopla.
Cranium 25th Anniversary Edition
The 25th Anniversary edition of Cranium is packed with 18 fun activities that will work out every part of your brain.
You can flex your vocabulary with Word Worm, display your knowledge with Data Head, get creative with Creative Cat, and let your inner star shine with Star Performer. It's got all the classics from the entire Cranium line, plus new activities and updated content.
It will be interesting to see if there will be any collector value with the Cranium 25th anniversary edition. It won't be for many years when boxes are opened and game pieces go missing until value begins to rise.
Cranium Cariboo, which was first introduced in 1998, can go for anywhere between $50 - $200 depending on the edition and condition of the game.
