There's a mystery person on your opponent's card. Can you find that matching face in the crowd?

Start with a gameboard full of funny-looking suspects. Then ask the right questions to eliminate the wrong faces! Once you're down to a face or two...solve the case by guessing who! Does your person have a big nose? No. Is your person wearing a hat? Yes. Now you can flip down all the faces without hats! Guess your opponent's mystery person before your opponent guesses yours (Hasbro.com).

Guess Who? Is a fantastic way for children ages 6 and up to learn a great lesson about truth tables. Imagine if young children created a truth table from the questions they asked. It would probably look something like this:

Notice the player has eliminated it to 3 possible faces using this truth table.

This game is also teaming with universal statements. Players must create these to logically reason which face to guess. A universal statement for this game may very well appear in the form:

F = { all faces on the board }f = the correct faceG(f) = face wears glassesW(f) = face is a woman’sH(f) = face is wearing a hatB(f) = face has bald

 f  F | G(f) ^ W(f) ^ ~H(f) ^ B(f)

Finally, Guess Who? is a great example to create functions. While many are not one-to-one or onto they can be very helpful. An arrow diagram may look like:

Guess Who? is a great real world example of the use of logic. It is usually considered to be in the logic/puzzle category of board games which is a good indication that this game involves a good amount of logical deduction. As I have shown, it makes use of truth tables, universal statements and functions. The game Guess Who? is a good way to introduce logic and proofs to children or to students.
