Training for the 508? Don't play this.

My daughter was looking for a little entertainment this past weekend so she pulled out the Cranium Hullabaloo game. Haven't played it? It's like audio twister. Lay the different pads (shapes, colors, with objects on them) around the speaker, then hit the button. The dude's voice says stuff like "spin to a triangle" and "slither to a blue". Eventually he gets around to "Now for a super challenge... put your elbow on the elephant, your nose on a red, and your knee on a triangle". As they say, it's all fun and games until someone loses an eye... or jacks up an adductor muscle thanks to the 'hullabaloo super challenge'. Training for a big event? Stay away from this game - bad juju.
