Our Guess Who? Karneval costumes were a pretty big hit among those who saw them, which excites me, because I loved them too and will probably do it again. I wish I could claim Miss Creativity on this one, but I definitely saw the idea on Pinterest. For those of you who missed out on your childhood and never got to play Guess Who?, here is one side of the game. You try to guess the other player’s character by asking a serious of yes or no questions like “Does your person have a beard?”. By process of elimination, you can figure out the other player’s character. It’ s simply an 80s classic. Our boards say “Wer ist es?” because that is the name of the game in Germany. The character names remain the same.
