Guess Who is a board game involving two people. The game requires us to guess the name of a hidden character. To keep the game running, we have to answer yes or no after the rival tries to guess.
The board holds the character we’ll be guessing and cards of mystery characters that are randomly picked. This game also requires something we call the Guess Who game sheets. The sheets depict the “candidate” guessed characters. These sheets are included in the board.
1. Arrange and attach the candidate characters on each board of both players.
2. Shuffle the cards of characters which will be guessed. Each player takes out one card. Make sure it’s flipped facing down so we can’t directly see the character in the first place. Don’t let the opponent peek at our cards.
3. Decide who starts to guess.
4. Use closed-ended questions to start guessing. Since we are guessing based on the photo or images, pick a question that describes a physical appearance, such as “are they a girl?” or “Does she wear glasses?”
5. The rival only can answer “yes” or “no”. If it suits the physical characteristic, we can start flipping our candidates who aren’t in the category. The more they are flipped, the easier we guess. The candidates are the clue of the mysterious characters. Pick the best question and flip carefully.
6. It’s time for the opponent to guess our card. Do the exact same things like before, but the roles are reversed.
7. To determine the winner, it’s as simple as naming the correct character that your rival hides. Stating the character’s name ends the game.
This board game can be found at the nearest toy store in town. However, we can create DIY Guess Who game sheets!
Usually, the slots that we need in the game are 24 slots for every player. It’s arranged in a 6x4 order. Since it’s our customized game, we can pick our own number of characters. A quick tip, if we want to be different, just add them for more than 24 characters. If we reduce them, wouldn’t it become easily predicted?
The amount of cards that we need is commonly 24. We equalize the slots. It’s because the characters in cards are the same person on the board.
We know, this is a personalized game. However, if we have no fixed measurements, the game can’t fit our table or hands or are hard to see. If we determine over-the-counter board games as a reference, it frames up to 2.9 cm wide and 3.4 cm tall. Don’t worry, nobody prohibits us to change the size. So, do the math. After all, the aim of DIY is to get the most comfortable result for us. Happy crafting!
