Skills: Critical thinking, deductive reasoning, figure-ground discrimination
In Guess Who?, your child needs to figure out the other player’s mystery person. By asking relevant “yes” or “no” questions (such as “Does your person wear a hat?”) your child eliminates unlikely candidates.
Your child has to come up with a plan for asking questions. She also has to notice and make sense of the small details in the crowd of faces on her game board. The game comes in a superhero version, too. And there’s a variation called Guess Where? your child can play to practice visual-spatial skills.
