What it is: [Amazon product description] The beloved 1980’s version of the classic mystery face game is back! There’s a mystery person on your opponent’s card. Can you find the matching face in the crowd? Start with your game full of silly-looking characters. Then ask the right questions to eliminate the wrong faces! Does your person have blue eyes? Is your person wearing a hat? Once you’re down to a face or two – solve the mystery by guessing who! If you’re the first to identify your opponent’s mystery person, you win.

What I love: The two players each insert the same character card into their holder, leaving all the doors open. Then, each player chooses which character they’ll be without telling the other person. Taking turns, players ask “yes” or “no” questions (e.g., Is your character a female? Is she wearing a hat?), eliminating the wrong characters and closing the door where that character is pictured. The first person to narrow down the characters and figure out their opponent’s character, wins. You can play the same board over and over or switch out the character board for others. Boards have animals, foods, sea life and more.
What I would change: More character sheets per box
