I have the board game of Cranium and I thought this might be cool for us to play as a family. The game is good so I'll give it a fair BUT you can't rent this game because you need special glasses to see the answers (for the person doing the drawing, acting, etc).
The only issue with the actual game would be having a steady hand. In order to draw good you can't have a lot of shake in your hand.
Might be great, but can't tell without the glasses

This is the second game I placed in my queue before it was released only to be disappointed when the game arrived. The game wasn't a diappointment... well, to be honest I don't know if the game is a disappointment because we couldn't play without the glasses. It seems that any extras needed to play games (glasses, microphone, etc.) which come with the game if purchased does not come with the rental. This little warning does exist on the game now, but DID NOT when the game was in pre-release (which is typically when I add games to my queue.
This might a good family game based solely on the fact that Cranium games are typically fun, educational and family-friendly. We might end up buying the game, but I don't suggest anyone rent it!
