How to Make Your Own Cranium Card

By J.S. Copper

Cranium is a board game from Hasbro. The game, whose tag line is "The Game for Your Whole Brain," involves the player performing one of a number of different activities on each turn. The activities include acting, drawing, singing, sculpting, and more. Hasbro allows people to create their own Cranium cards by providing official templates that can be customized for your specific occasion or family. Creating your own cards is pretty simple.

Download and install Adobe Acrobat Reader, if it not already installed on your computer.

Download the desired custom Cranium Card template(s). The templates will be in PDF format.

Open Acrobat Reader, select “File,” then “Open” and open the downloaded Cranium PDF file.

Select "File," then "Print" to print out the custom Cranium cards.

Follow the instructions on the sheets of printed cards to customize the cards. Each card has a separate set of instructions.

Cut the instructions off the cards using scissors. Cut out the cards.

Fold the cards in half, so that on one side are the customized instructions, on the other are the Cranium logos and category. Use take or glue to secure the cards and place the cards in the appropriate Cranium category boxes to use in game.
