MB Games Guess Who?
Advantages: Still lots of fun after all these years!
Guess Who is a classic game from MB Games that is still going strong decades after its original release (I remember playing it when I was a kid!) and is just as much fun as it was then.
The concept is a simple one. Two players each have a set of characters on a display board , all of which can be flipped face down. One player shuffles the twenty-four accompanying cards and then each player picks a card, careful to not let their opponent see it. This is your character. Now, each player has to take it in turns to ask questions such as "Does your character have blue eyes/ brown hair etc..." As each answer is given, the opposing player then gets to flip down any of the figures on their display that don't match the criteria given. By this way, and by a process of elimination, the winner is the person who guesses first which character is on their opponent's card? Sounds easy? Well, often this is not as simple as it seems........
Many of the chartacters have similar features and if you don't ask the right questions, it can all get down to luck of the draw. And that is part of the fun because no two games are ever the same......
My daughter is at an age now where she is just getting into board games and our local Charity shops seems to be in a good supply. I bought an original versiuon of this in good condition the other day for just a couple of quid which is far cheaper than if you bought it new. But many of the Supermarkets often have deals on kids games and, if you are lucky, you can often get two-for-one or two for a fiver etc....
Certainly this is a nostalgic and classic game that is worth investing in and though you can get different sets based around different characters from various kids cartoons or shows and a generic cheaper version that is called something else but essentially the same game, this original version remains the best!
Summary: A classic game that never loses its appeal
