We had fun on Thanksgiving playing a warped version of a clean, wholesome family game. Why do I get the feeling this doesn't surprise you?
The game: Cranium Whoonu
The objective: All players (except one) are dealt cards from a stack naming completely random things (salsa, poodles, eBay, sundaes, nail polish, rock climbing, etc.)
Each player picks from his/her hand two cards representing items s/he thinks the last player likes the best and slides them into the Secret Envelope.
The Secret Envelope Person then orders the items from their most favorite to their least, with the most points awarded to the person who picked the most favorite, etc.
Well, we made it through one round of that before we rebelled. We wanted to pick the two things the Secret Envelope Person liked least = hated most. Most points awarded for most hated.
You know what? It was a lot more fun. But then again, we're just that way.
BTW, this is for ages 8 and up, and Young Son loved it. It's a great game to play with kids that won't drive adults nuts. Especially the Hater version.
