Very rarely do I give bad reviews, but this product really deserves it. I remember this Guess Who from my childhood and had lots of fun playing this with friends and family. But this version of the game is absolutely terrible.
#1. When we received the product, one of the card holders was broken. I tried to fix it with some glue so i did not have to return it, but it still would not work.
#2 None of the pieces in the row actually line up with each other (See picture).
#3 the cardboard that the faces come on seems more like paper than actual cardboard (See Picture). Two pieces had scratches on them already. You can tell that only the cheapest plastic possible was used to created this game. For the $25 price being charged on Amazon, you'd imagine it being a bit sturdier, but no, this is the type of plastic you can find in toys at the dollar store or Poundland.
Also I thought that this game was made by Hasbro, but it is only licensed out by them to some company called Winning Moves Games.
Please for the love of all that is good DO NOT BUY THIS GARBAGE to support a bad quality product for a formerly great game.

I bought this for my daughter to work on her visual discrimination skills. I was really disappointed to find that some of the colors on the cards that are drawn don't match the colors on the board images. For example, black appears as black on the board images and as brown on the cards. As a result, my children unintentionally give incorrect answers leading to frustrating results. For example - one child asks "Does your person have black hair?" to which the other responds "No". This inevitably leads to accusations later in the game - "You said your person didn't have black hair!! You cheated!". When. in fact, no one cheated. Net, the cards do not look as intended and I would not purchase this version of the game.

I am a child of the 80's and so is my husband. Even though we were born in different countries, we both grew up playing this game. We both had the original Hasbro one, the version now called "Retro".

We bought this for our 5 year old daughter and I was a little disappointed. This game is very cheaply made. The flaps are flimsy and they frequently hit the front row when you fold them down. The print quality is poor to the point it interferes with the game (the cards and the prints in the flaps don't quite match in color and generates some confusion...). The names are the same and the characters have similar features to the ones in the original version, but the illustrations are not as nice as in the original.

The way you play the game is the same and it is nice and fun to play with the kids. I like the game, but I regret not buying the Hasbro Retro...

Not happy with this purchase. I own the original game and I do not like all the other versions that have come out. I was hoping this would be like the original but it is so cheaply made. While putting it together for my nephew on his birthday one of the pieces that holds the people broke. Had to send back and order another. If you are going to make the pieces cheap, at least send extra in case that happens.

The game itself is a classic win. I found fault in the quality. The pictures punch out, but for the kids, easy to tear when getting the game set up. Also, the kids have a hard time determining which hair is orange versus yellow. There are also only 2 eye colors... Blue and what looks like orange (weird). Also, the back piece to the '?' to keep track of your wins was missing for one play board so it won't snap in place.

Another issue is when you flip down a person, it flips down the person in front 30-50% of the time because they spaced them too close when they made the game. I mean... Really? That would have been so easy to avoid.

It is fun once you know what colors each other is calling each color.... Before that you can never guess the right person. The up side is even a 4-5 year old can play and not have to read... You just have to show them the person to guess or spell the name if they know letters.

I am disappointed with this version. Two pieces broke during the first round. There are 19 males and 5 females. That makes it very unfair if one person has a female card and the other a male. And just ridiculous to have such an imbalance.
Plus, No real difference in skin color. I'll be returning it and buying the Hasbro version.

I have memories of playing this game when I was younger. I might even go so far as to say that some, even most, are fond memories. The various faces with their hats, mustaches, and glasses are all back to challenge and entertain two people. Specifically two, because even buying two sets does not guarantee a 3 against 1 set up, unless, I suppose, you simply force people to ask questions of the person in a circle. Nonetheless, this game is fun and easy for kids. Most kids. My 5-year-old is an unabashed cheater at almost all games, including candy land. Seriously, hates losing a no-stakes game so much that given a few losses will stop playing--even if she won some as well. Sorry, a bit off topic. The game does not care if you rage quit, but if you toss or slam it all the little cards might come out. A classic game; I recommend it.

I was so excited to receive my guess who board game. I use to play this when I was a kid.
First time playing trying to play it with my kids and before we even started playing some of the plastic pieces broke. Who knows why.
Wish it didn't though.

Fun game with easy set up. Teaches kids to ask detailed questions and listening skills. The cards tend to fall out easily, but you just have to teach your kids not to play with the cards. When I received this game, some of the pieces were missing. Amazon quickly resolved the issue. Great customer service!

Although it's just as fun as the classic I remember playing in elementary school, the construction is absolutely SHODDY. I'm returning it and heading to EBay for a vintage one that's not much more expensive. The plastic on this version could be snapped in two like a twig if you accidentally stepped on it. The images are on cheap cardstock. When you tap a picture to eliminate it, it frequently knocks over the picture in front of it -- really annoying when you're trying to teach a young child the game.

The classic version was strong enough to stand up to class after class of 5th graders; this barely stands a chance in my house and it's only been a week. Overall, a really fun game but very frustrating when it's so cheaply made.
