Guess Who? and Mouse Trap were two games that my brother and I never owned, so we were always pleased to find friends who did.
No matter that there were only five female characters in Guess Who? and that the little old man in Mouse Trap never, ever made the dive into his wash basin.
In my hunt for a Guess Who? game to play with my hyper-observant daughter who remembers people down to the holes in their socks, I discovered that Bernard, Herman, Claire--even Frans--were now animated sea creatures, foods, and vehicles.
And that 24 windows had become 15.
Even this version that I finally tracked down in the UK had been updated with bad vector art and lots more, cheaper plastic.
How can we expect our children to identify suspects in a line-up?
Unless, that is, a rash of crimes is suddenly committed by pieces of pizza and seahorses with googly eyes.
