A great update on an already wonderful Classic!
Reviewed in the United States on February 22, 2018
Have so many fond memories of the travel version of this from when my brother and I used to play during long road trips, flights, etc. growing up! So, decided it was a perfect complement to add onto a variety of other games/activities my wife and I gathered up ahead of our nieces (ages 4 & 7) coming over for the weekend.
The game has been updated a bit in the last 25 years in that it no longer is so narrow in how faces/people are conveyed. There is far greater diversity; eyes, hair (color/style), and other aspects of profile are no longer limited to "conventional" norms.
Obviously, at its core, this game is a great play of guess-and-check, but as an adult, my appreciation is rooted more in the way it specifically opens up the way my nieces approach problem-solving and working through logic considerations to make each turn count! You could clearly see the learning taking place from one round to the next as both girls started to think a bit more about the field at large rather than focusing on single traits at random. This was far more evident in the 7 versus 4 year old as we partnered up with each to help, but both responded quickly relative to their respective ages and had a blast doing it!
