MB Games Guess Who
Fun game, not as good as the old style.
Great fun game however the way it is designed is not particularly child friendly. The two sides join together and often come apart mid play or the doors shut with the slightest movement. Not great for two children to play themselves, so far my daughter (5) has had to have adult supervision when playing to make sure the doors do not close themselves when playing with a friend.

Not a great design
I had the original and is one is not as good, the windows keep on shutting every time you knock it slightly so very annoying, the windows are also smaller and parts are very stiff. Format of game is good and also how you can change characters but the normal man/ woman game if you choose a woman you are bound to lose as there are quite a lot less woman to men!!!! I hope is review helps, I am going to try and source original.

Not what it used to be!
Having had this game as a child in the 80's, I brought this for our son in the hope that he would enjoy it just as much.
The game boards, probably only to be expected, have been completely changed and not for the better. The quality is nowhere near as good. The "doors" open from side to side like an actual door opening rather than up and down like they used to which means that the slightest knock during game play or a slip of the hand and you've closed more than you intended. This can be somewhat avoided by separating the game boards but when used in this way you have to either lay them flat thereby allowing the other player to see your board and which character you've picked, or you have to hold it upright which can lead to the same problem.
Rather than selecting a game card with a face on, in this newer version you move the marker along the top of the board to select a character - minor point, but in my opinion these pictures are also too small particularly for younger children.
My son still enjoys the concept of the game and is happy to play it, however, does find it frustrating when the doors keep closing. With hindsight I probably would have tried to source one of the older game boards as I think they would prove to be more enjoyable.
