Cranium Cadoo for Kids
Cranium Cadoo is a Can Do game for kids than mimics the game Craniumfor adults. It is just as much fun with as many giggles and high-fives.
Two kids can play alone. Three or four kids can play the game. But that’s not all. It is a wonderfullyentertaining family game in situations when the board game Cranium would be tooadvanced.
In Cranium Cadoo there are two card decks: Solo and Combo.Players complete Solo activities alone, while Combo cards get two or moreplayers working together to win.
The Solo and Combo cards have eight different activities and feature all fourof theCadoo characters:
Cranium Cadoo takes two or more players about five minutes to learn and 30 minutes to play.Kids act, puzzle, sketch, scavenge, sculpt, or even crack secret codes toget tokens and place them on the game board. The goal of Cadoo is to get four tokens in a row on theboard to win.
Parts of the games, such as the scavenger hunt are quite active.
Cadoo won the 2002 Toy Industry Association Game of the Year award, which recognizes the most innovative, interactive, and playful game of the year.
There is a version of Cadoo which comes in a tin lunch-box-style carrying case.It is more durable and adds a nice touch to a gift, especially for a child whocarries his/her games out of the home. However, it is slightly more expensive.
The only draw back to Cadoo is that it only contains one tub ofclay. The solution is to order Cadoo Booster Box. You get another tubof clay and double your fun with 300 new cards when you purchase the boosterbox. It also contains a new decoder mask and an additional drawing pad. The booster box does require the original game to play, though, so don’t order it alone.
