Guess Who?

Guess Who? board game by Hasbro Guess who?
Two players try to deduce the identity of their opponent's "Mystery Person." Children learn to ask relevant questions, "Does the person have brown hair?"  With age (months) and experience, kids learn to ask increasingly strategic questions. 

Increase the challenge and the fun by guessing two mystery people!  Does the blue-eyed person wear glasses?  Our twelve year old still enjoys Guess Who? with this twist to the rules.  

Try a quick game right before bedtime.  It's a five minute way to tune up those listening skills and slow down together.
