Tonight for family game night we played a super active and fun game called Cranium Cadoo from Winning Moves. It was super fun and full of laughs. It’s a great game to get the entire family up and moving around and involved in the game. Great party game idea. We also got to try out the new Disney Pixar Cars Goldfish from Pepperidge Farm they were so yummy and the Cars shaped Goldfish are so cute.
Cranium Cadoo is a fast paced, action packed, and super fun game that will bring out your creative side. This game has something for everyone. Whether you like to draw, sculpt, trivia, or acting things out this game has it all. A super fun twist on the classic four in a row that has you running around the house, charade style guessing games, and much more. It’s a great way to spend some fun time with the family.
In the box you will find:
1 Deck of Solo Cards
1 Deck of Combo Cards
1 package of modeling clay
1 Decoder Glasses
1 Pad of paper
4 sets of game pieces 8 pieces in each set (green, blue, yellow, purple)
Who Would Enjoy this Game:
The game is designed for ages 7 and up. My eight year old played it and really enjoyed the game, it was fun for the entire family though including the adults and my older daughter. So it makes a great family or party game. I think you may be able to play with younger kids if you played in teams and paired them with an older player. Played with 2 or more players. Since you can play in teams you can play with as many people as you like so it’s a lot of fun for a large group. We really enjoyed all the acting, drawing, and sculpting it really got us laughing and interacting with the game.
Is It Fun:
Yes it is a ton of fun. We were laughing all night long. We are not the best at drawing and sculpting so some of our creations really had us laughing. My youngest (8) kept wanting to play all night long, we finally had to tell her we had to put it up because it was getting so late. It was a blast.
Game play is very simple. You are basically playing four in a row. You are trying to get four of your pieces either vertically, diagonally, or horizontally. You place pieces when you have completed either a solo or combo card within the time limit. To set up the game you will put the game board out in the middle of the table. Each player or team of players chooses a color and takes the game pieces. Set out the cards, timer, clay, and drawing pad where everyone can reach them.
To play on your turn roll the die. You will either roll a combo, solo, or I choose. If you roll a solo then you will choose a solo card from the deck and do what it says. The instructions are printed on all of the cards so just read and follow directions. Most of solo cards are trivia type questions. They are simple, my 8 year old had no issues answering the questions. They also had things like figuring our a word from pictures, running and getting items that fit into a category, or putting pictures in order. If you complete your card before the timer runs out then you put a piece anywhere on the board you would like. If you choose a combo card then you will choose a card from the combo deck and complete the instructions. The combo cards are fun and involve acting things out, making something out of clay, or drawing something on the pad. When someone chooses a combo card you complete the card while the other players guess. If someone guesses before the time runs out then you place a piece on the board and the person who guessed correctly first places a piece on top of yours. You both get to count it as a space in your four in a row. If you get an I choose then you can pick either a solo or combo card. The only rule on the four in the row is that you can not complete your four in a row on a combo card it must be a solo card.
You keep playing until someone has four in a row or if no one gets four in a row you play until all the spaces are full and then the person with the most pieces wins. Note the secret words and answers are on each card in a red box that you will need to use the decoder glasses to read.
I don’t really have any concerns. The only problem we had with this game was due to my bad eyes lol. I could not see the answers with the decoder glasses. The only time it was a problem was when I needed to do a combo card and the other players couldn’t read it for me. However, this was purely because I have bad eyes because everyone else could read them just fine.

What Are Goldfish:
I don’t know if there is anyone out there that doesn’t know what Goldfish are, they have been a long time favorite snack of ours for years now. I started buying them with our oldest daughter and all of my kids have loved them over the years. They are baked not fried and made with whole grains and organic wheat. They are much healthier option that chips or other snacks. If you are looking for something yummy they will love and that you can feel good about giving them then Goldfish is perfect.
New Disney Pixar Cars:
Pepperidge Farm Goldfish is exciting to release the new Disney Pixar Cars themed Goldfish. They have adorable Lighting McQueen shaped crackers mixed in with the classic fishes that we all love. They are so cute. My daughter loves this series of movies and she is super excited about the new one that comes out in June. This is a great way to get your kiddos excited and snacking right.
