Everything you need to play this game

A step-by-step guide to play the game

1

Gather two players or two groups of players and hand out a 'Guess Who' board to both players/teams. Make sure the distance between the players/groups is not too big, so the players can hear each other.

2

Each player picks one of the 25 faces on the panel and keeps it a secret. 

3

Now take turns asking yes/no questions to figure out which person the other player picked. E.g. Is it a woman? Does she have brown hair? Does she wear glasses?

4

The players put a bottle cap on each person that no longer meets the features that they asked for. E.g. All men are out. All women that don't wear glasses are out.

5

Whoever is the fastest in guessing which person the other player picked, wins the game.

Extra game information

The game contains a red and a blue board with each panel featuring the same 25 different faces. Each face is a unique combination of characteristics (e.g. glasses, hair colour, gender, ...)
