What's the big deal about Young Living

Win a New Cranium Game

Hasbro, through MyBlogSpark, recently provided me with the new game, "Scribblish", to try out and they would also like to give one to one of my readers.

The suggested ages for this game are 8+ and we found that to be a good guideline because each player must read a caption and be able to copy it, draw a picture of it, then read another player's hand written phrase, and draw that.

My kids (8+) all had a ball playing this for several rounds, though after a while, we gave up using the timer because it never seemed to give us enough time to draw with the details we were wanting to include.

I'm not going to come right out and say that we have some family members with, er, shall we say, warped senses of humor (either that or they are in desperate need of prescription glasses. Or counseling.), but, well... judge for yourself.

These are some of the made up captions we had at the end of our game:

  • "The Fart Band is in Town"
  • "My monkey-tail dad makes me sad."
  • "Beware! A man devouring deer is on the loose!"

See what I mean? I am surrounded by weirdos.

But they are weirdos that make me laugh, so I'll keep them.

And now one of YOU gets to keep this game! Hasbro would like to send one of you a brand new one. If you would like to win this game, simply leave a comment  on this post  telling us what your favorite board game is.

  1. This is great. My kids are outgrowing our “younger” games and ready for a new one. We play Caves and Claws alot. I love that it is a cooperative game vs. Competitive. Thanks for the giveaway.

  2. Monopoly is our favorite!

  3. We love Pictureka, anyone can win that one and no small pieces!!

  4. Sounds fun! My favorite is Balderdash.

  5. We are a board game lovin’ family, and with 2 adult children and the youngest already 10, this sounds perfect for us. So much better than sitting in front of the TV for hours on end! I love the titles your family came up with – sounds like this game is a keeper!

  6. Our favorite is chess.

  7. cranium is one of my favorite, but also like monopoly!

  8. We LOVE Cranium games!! Our favorite is Whoonu. This one looks like a TON of fun – thanks for hosting the giveaway!

  9. One of our favorite games is Mexican Train Dominoes.

  10. We LOVE to play WhooNu! Every time we have company we get that game out because it’s so much fun to play with lots of people!

  11. My 2 favorites right now are “Apples to Apples” and “Reminiscing” (like trivial pursuit but with stuff you’d actually know).

  12. My all time favorite board game is “Life”. My kids love it too and that makes me terribly happy. :-)

  13. We love Monopoly!!

  14. Balderdash! My hubby and I first played this when we were newlyweds. We had so much fun, and one of the words I ‘defined’ is a running joke with us to this day (9+ years later). We enjoy all sorts of other board games–Cranium is another fun one–and card games as well, but Balderdash always brings back special memories for us.

  15. This looks like such a fun game and my whole family and extended family are always looking for new games to play!

  16. Connie Seward says:

    Hope to win!

  17. Jennifer M. says:

    My kiddos are still young, so we play a lot of Connect Four. :)

  18. oh, too many favorites…monopoly, settlers, scrabble :)

  19. Just one favorite??? I don’t know if I can choose between Balderdash, Scattergories, or Scrabble! (See a common theme there? English teacher, of course!) My favorite with our children is Bananagrams… so fun!

  20. I’m not trying to be a brown-noser or anything, but my favorite game HANDS-DOWN is Cranium! I don’t get to play it often, but I love it whenever we have a group together that can! I sure would love to try Cranium’s new game!

  21. Wanda styraky says:

    We have played this game but do not have our own. Also we love just plain ole’ Monopoly!

  22. This game looks terrific! We like Scrabble, though we affectionately refer to it as “Squabble” because that’s what happens when our youngest gets involved….

  23. Our favorite board game is the Settlers of Catan, but it’s not really for young kids, since it’s a bit complex. As for an entire family game, we like Monopoly and other Cranium games.

    I actually saw an ad for this game on tv last night and thought it looked interesting. It would be great to win!

  24. We like to play Orthello….among many, many others.

  25. oh boy! we are a board game loving family! i myself love scrabble the most :)

  26. My favorite board game is Sorry (it’s really easy to play with the kids), but my hubby’s favorite is Cranium. He’s always suggesting we play that one when we have company.

    Scribblish looks a lot like a game we play at our Bible study get-togethers called Telephone Pictionary. But that game requires cutting up hundreds of little squares of paper and coming up with a random phrase on your own. So Scribblish would definitely be an upgrade!

  27. We love to play games, as well. My favorite game is Sorry! while my husband loves Wild Words (a spin off of Scrabble). Our children love Othello, checkers and Monopoly. And as a family, we all enjoy Bible Challenge.

    When we get together with the extended family, we ALWAYS play games. Things, Outburst, Malarky, Apples to Apples, Pictionary, Family Feud, ….any kind of group game are good. This on defiantly looks really fun!

  28. How can I pick a favorite game — Pictionary, Trivial Pursuit, Would you rather, Cranium, the list could go on and on… I’ve seen the ads for this game and it looks like fun.

  29. We love Monopoly and Apples to Apples! :)

  30. Sheilah Miller says:

    Not sure if I can name a favorite since we have at least a hundred games. We are a gaming family. However this is not one that we have and I would love to add it. My boys love Risk (I play once a year just to humor them) and I’ll have to go with Settler’s or Ticket to Ride for now.

  31. Wow! It’s really hard to chose. Lately, we have enjoyed the game Camp. It’s fun because many levels can play. We also like Cadoo. My oldest son loves Monopoly though. He’s always begging for someone to play it with him, or he just plays by himself. LOL

  32. I looooooove to play Boggle, especially Master Boggle. =O) This Scribblish looks hilarious! Pictionary is a second favorite, so I’m really hoping I end up winning this silly drawing game. Thanks for the chance.

  33. Christy Terry says:

    We love all things Cranium-Right now we’ve been playing cranium cadoo as a family and having a great time bonding!!!!!

  34. Scrabble is a favorite in this house!

  35. Hmm…My hunney and I used to play Othello for HOURS back the day before we had babies and we had no tv LOL. Now we like card games, monopoly.

  36. Cool! I keep seeing ads for this game on TV and it looks like so much fun! My family loves games, and we too have many with a warped sense of humour (doesn’t it just make life more fun though?). We really enjoy Scattegories and Cranium.

  37. I love Apples to Apples!

  38. Pictionary!

  39. Hahahaha! Sounds like a game custom-made for my family!


  40. We love clue!

  41. I would have to say that our main favorite is Scattergories. Nothing stretches us as mentally or gets us into debates as much as that one does. :)

  42. My favorite board game is Stone Age, or maybe Dominion. But this looks like tons of fun!

  43. It’s so hard to pick just one. We like Boggle, any Cranium games, Carcassonne, Balloon Cup, Ticket to Ride, and backgammon.

  44. When playing games with our children, the oldest is 5, we play a lot of Candy Land and Chutes and Ladders. When it is just us parents, we like scrabble.

  45. Monopoly is always a favorite here :)

  46. Mousetrap!

  47. LOL! Your kids are awesome! Scribblish sounds like a fun game. We really like Apples to Apples. Chutes and Ladders is the favorite with our under fives.

  48. Our family’s favorite board game is Sorry.

  49. We love cluedo, we are very analytical and find the most fun trying to figure out what people have in their hands but haven’t shown you by what they show others and what they guess, it can get quite intense when you really put your mind to it and take all guesses and guess reactions into account instead of just the cards you see.

  50. Looks like a lot of fun! We like apples to apples and pictureka among others. :)

  51. Elizabeth says:

    Sorry! is my all-time favorite. I know it isn’t terribly exciting, but it brings back many happy memories as a child, playing with my grandmother and now my children enjoy it as well.
    Thank you!

  52. My favourite board game as a child was monopoly. Now my favourite game is scrabble. Thanks for the giveaway!

  53. I love so many board games, but I think my favorite is Clue, but I also really like Othello, and Sorry…..I don’t know 😀 But I think Clue really is my most favorite

  54. Favorite all time board game is Wahoo! We even have a homemade trophy for championship games. Second favorite, not really a game, but the whole family helps put together a large puzzle. No one is allowed to work on it without the others there. Sometimes it takes days or weeks to finish. But time well spent.

  55. We love playing Taboo! We also loved playing Scrutineyes, but I don’t think that’s even made anymore!

  56. Life! It has been my favorite board game forever! My hubby even got me the newest version for Valentines day last year!

  57. That sounds like fun because it sounds a bit like my favorite game, Pictionary. Thanks for the chance to win!

  58. We love Quirkle!

  59. I like Trouble ~ does that count? :) This one sounds like lots of fun though! Thanks for the chance!

  60. Pop-O-Matic Trouble! My favorite card game is Apples to Apples. If you haven’t played that, you should!

  61. I personally love Scrabble (or Bananagrams), but we, as a family, play a lot of games that we love: Scrambled States of America, Sorry, Monopoly Jr. We also love Hullabaloo, although it’s not a board game. I don’t think I could pick just one as a favorite.

  62. I LOVE playing Clue;)

  63. This looks like fun! Love games, my game playing kids love Life and Yahtzee.

  64. I love Phase 10 and Rack-0. Both of my brothers, and all of my in-laws enjoy the games, so they are a lot of fun when we get together.

  65. Lora Greene says:

    Boggle is my favorite boxes game, but Euchre reigns as the favorite game of all. This game looks like fun!

  66. This new game sounds fun! We like Pictionary and Yahtzee, as far as board games go (and the men in our family like Risk). We also love playing card games like Skip Bo, Phase 10, and Apples to Apples Jr. Thanks for the giveaway!

  67. We like Apples to Apples!

  68. we love scrabble, pictionary, and apples to apples. it would be great to have a game to subject our houseguests to, and this one looks perfect! :)

  69. april ausdenmoore says:

    MY family likes othello. It is interesting game. Also, this game reminds of pictionary. We played that alot when my husband and I were first married.

  70. Payday was my favorite as a child and now I’ve hooked my oldest on it as well. I loved reading all the lists of games in the comments. Great ideas!!

  71. Fun! My favorite is Balderdash.

  72. Our favorite family game is Life on the Farm.

  73. Don’t know if this counts b/c there’s no actual board involved, but we love Boggle!

  74. Elizabeth S says:

  83. Rebecca Baker says:

    Scattergories – this looks like fun to try! Our family is full of game-aholics :)

  84. Megan Schow says:

    Our favorite is Apples to Apples.

  85. I think Cranium makes some really great games. I’ve got to say probably my favorite game is one called Boxers or Briefs (it has nothing to do with underwear, I promise). It’s kind of like Apples to Apples, but funnier!

  86. My new favorite is Speed Scrabble…but we love Scategories, Taboo, and Huggermugger too. :-)

  87. Oops….I meant “Scattergories”. :/

  88. We LOVE WhooNu! :)

  89. Favorite game…..actually, anything we play as a family.

  90. Oh, my; pick a favorite? We have several: Uno, Scrabble, Boggle, Monopoly, Jenga, and Pictionary. They are all fun.

    When the ENTIRE family wants to play, we like Monopoly because the little kids can feel involved without actually doing anything, or Jenga, because who doesn’t like block towers?

  91. Oh how fun! We mostly play Candy Land (lol), but also have fun with Snorta and In a Pickle.

  92. Right now our favorite game is Life.

  93. my favorite game is Sorry!
    it’s an oldie but goodie :)

  94. We like Pictureka, Scrabble, Boggle, etc. This game sounds like fun!

  95. My personal favorite game is LIFE!

  96. We like everything from Candyland to Monopoly at our house.

  97. Monopoly is our new favorite.

  98. Apples to Apples! It’s fantastic and somehow never gets old :)

  99. Scrabble and it’s variants like the Scrabble Apple and Slam (and sometimes our own rules to the same) are faves at our house.

  100. Settlers of Catan! Love that game!

  101. We love lots of board games, scrabble, monopoly, balderdash, most of the cranium games!
