Welcome back if you've been watching the two-hour
season opener of FGN. If not, where've you been? You missed a big money moment!
Anyway, time to kick things into overdrive with rounds of... Boggle, Green
Scream, Cranium, Guesstures, and Yahtzee on Family Game Night!
Let's meet the players...

sister Sarah plays handball, mom Robin can juggle anything, and dad
Howard is a trumpeter
Azia loves drawing, brother Gyasi
loves his dog, mom Kimberly needs fashion advice, while dad Eric is
a computer genius
Five games will be played. Each win
will give the family a choice of 21 Monopoly Crazy Cash Card (3C's).
Each card has a different dollar amount. Tonight's top value:
$10,000! Both families keep everything they win, but the team with
the most cash at the end of the show will win a family vacation in
Cranium Brain Break: Pin the Brain on
Cranium Brain Breaks will determine which family gets first pick of the Cash
Cards, and who will play first in the first game. Each team is
guaranteed at least 1 Crazy Cash Card.
In this Brain Break, your team will have to
pin the Cranium brain onto the cranium of our brave heroic host. The
captains will be blinded by their opponent's moms, and the rest of the
family will have to direct.
Michael's the first to pin the brain on the Newton to pick the first
3C... the THIMBLE (C-Note: My favorite). Azia picks the BATTLESHIP.
On a five-by-five Boggle board, you will
have 2 minutes to come up with as many words as you can. Each one is
worth one point for every letter, and the team with the most letters
wins. Remember: all letters must be touching, and all words must be at
least three letters long.
