I used to love guess who game when I was a little kid. I remember wanting to play all the time and getting everyone to play with me. This new version is basically the same with some different characters. There is two plastic boards with the doors on it and cardboard character sheets. There are 4 different sheets including people, pets, sea creatures, and foods. The game is simple. Both players pick a set of characters to play and slide them into the back of the plastic handheld board then they secretly pick which one they want the other player to have to guess. There is a sliding piece they put next to the one they pick so they don't forget. The two players take turns asking yes or no questions about the mystery character. They then close the doors on the ones they know it can't be according to the answers they get. They single it down and make a guess when they have asked enough questions. It is a very fun game and is great for kids that aren't the same age because it doesn't require much skill. One thing i didn't like at all about this new version is that the carboard character inserts are super flimsy. When you slide it in there isn't a whole lot holding it in place and you have to hold it up so the other player can't see who you have chosen. It would have been a lot better if there was another plastic piece behind the cardboard so it's not so flimsy. The game is inexpensive so it is worth buying. My kids enjoy playing and it's a nice quiet game. I like this game because there isn't small pieces to loose and there is nothing that has to be assembled every time the kids want to play. It is a great gift idea for a wide age range and it doesn't cost a whole lot. Both boys and girls will enjoy playing and adults can play too without getting too bored. I would recommend this to anyone and definitely for homes with more then one kid. This game has been played quite a bit in our house and it hasn't lost its appeal to the kids yet.
