Preparing for the game

Preparation is very simple, but if young children want to play, they need adult help.

The first step is to prepare the cards. They need to be carefully removed from the sheet and placed in plastic frames.

The prepared frames with the cards should be attached to the game board (red and blue) in the designated places. The order of the cards is not important. It is important to make sure that the frame can be easily closed and opened. 

Point markers can be attached to the game boards, but they are only used in championship play.

Players must select their game boards and turn over all cards.

Finally, players must select one mystery card each. This card must be placed in a holder on the game board and not shown to their opponent.

Guess Who Game - Rules

The game rules are simple. The youngest player starts the game. Start with the first question.

How to ask questions?

The questions that can be asked should be worded in such a way as to eliminate as many of the wrong cards as possible. For example, you could ask: "Does your character have glasses?" or "Does your character have a hat?" Each question can only be answered "Yes" or "No".

Once the opponent has answered the question, any cards that do not match the question can be discarded. For example, if the question is: "Does your character have black hair?" and the answer is yes, the player shall turn over all cards containing characters with a different colour hair.

A player who asks a question and turns over the wrong cards ends his turn. The opponent then asks the question.

To guess the mystery person, the player has to say e.g. "The mystery person's name is ... (John)" or similar.

Players are advised to refrain from guessing the character on the mystery card until they are absolutely sure of their guess, as they may lose the game.


Challenge game

To play the challenge game, players must draw two mystery cards and place them side by side on the game board.

The aim of the challenge game is to guess two different mysterious characters by asking questions. For example, "Do both people have beards?"

It is important not to make mistakes when turning over the wrong cards and to remember what questions have already been asked.
