Cranium Scribblish Review

Cranium Scribblish
(Approximate Retail Price: $19.99; Recommended Age: 8 and up; Players: 4 to 6)
A hilarious game of scribbles and sketches, Cranium Scribblish is a new take on the classic “telephone” game. The first player starts by drawing what they read on a silly statement card and passes it to the next player. The story sheet continues until the last player reads the story out loud, finding out how “this” became “that”!

Games are fun for kids and adults alike.  We love having a family game night and just enjoying spending time together as a family.  Family time is so important because kids grow up so fast.  That is why I was so thrilled to review a new game called Cranium Scribblish.  Described as a cross between “The Telephone Game” and Pictionary, this is a great game for anyone over age 8.

What’s Included:
  • 60 Scribblish cards
  • Timer
  • 6 Scribblish scrolls
  • Tablet of playing sheets
  • 6 sided die
  • 12 tokens
  • 2 cell batteries
  • Instruction booklet
  • Pencils not included
The object of the game is to race against the clock, drawing a picture to go along with the caption you choose.  Once the clock stops, you cover your picture and roll the die to see who in the group you will pass your image to. Next the other players try to write, draw or interpret what they see on the card during the timed round. Once everyone has a ‘guess’, you then try to decide which of those crazy scribbles was your original. You all also get to vote on who’s ‘scribblish’ is the funniest to gain points and win. The end results are hilarious. This game like all Cranium games was extremely fun  and the laughter did ensue!

The Cranium Scribblish game retails for $19.99 and can be purchased from Hasbro.com.
