Cranium: The Cranium Game is outrageous fun and gives players a chance to show off their talents! Players team up to cruise around the board completing activities in 4 color-coded categories: Creative Cat, Data Head, Star Performer, and Word Worm. One team picks a card from the category that matches their space on the board, and must successfully complete the activity before time runs out. Spelling a word backwards, drawing with their eyes closed, and solving a puzzle are just of few of the activities they might do. The first team to reach the Cranium Central space and complete one last challenge wins!

kNOW!: Thanks to the Google Assistant, the quiz game kNOW! asks questions that would never have been possible before in a tabletop game. The answers to many of the 1,500+ questions change daily and vary depending on where you play: "When will the sun rise tomorrow?", "How far is it from here to Honolulu?", or "What time is it in Sydney now?" Google's free digital voice assistant has the answers to these and many other questions. Players might also be challenged by tongue twisters and other odd phrases. For additional variety, new questions and theme specials will be added "in the box" for free.

Thanks to the digital timer, the game takes as long as players want, with a rules explanation via the Google Assistant. If you don't have online access, kNOW! is still playable without the voice assistant.

Monopoly: The thrill of bankrupting an opponent is addictive, but it pays to play nice, because your fortunes could change with the roll of the dice. Play nasty, and you might find everyone gangs up on you. Experience the ups and downs of the trading game with the classic Monopoly game. Collect complete color sets to build houses, and maybe even upgrade to a hotel. The more properties you own, the more rent you can charge. Chance cards could be worth money, or one might just tell you to Go To Jail. Take a trip around the Monopoly board to see who wins it all.

There can be only one winner in the Monopoly game; will it be you?
