Growing up, one of my favourite games was Guess Who. You know, the one where each player has a photo of a mystery person, and you flip photos down as you try to guess which person’s on the other person’s card?

Maria!

I remember being annoyed, as a child, that there were only like five women and 19 men. Seriously, what gives, Milton Bradley?! My sister and I always hoped to get Maria, who wore a jaunty green beret.

(We’ve actually played the game even as adults, except with questions like “Does your person look super shady?” and “Was your person probably a substitute teacher at some point?” Hilariously, we always guessed right based on those weird clues.)

A couple of years back, I picked up a secondhand game for $2 with grand plans to turn it into a customized Guess Who game with photos of our family. However, I stuck the game into one of my cabinets of art supplies and forgot about it.

Last weekend, I dusted it off and decided I was finally going to organize and order the photos I needed for the game.

Start to finish, it took me a couple of hours to do — and that included ordering the photos and picking them up at Staples.

No joke, the kids and I played at least 40 rounds that very first day — and it was much more fun than the original version.
