Personalised Guess Who game

Personalised Guess Who game

I’ve had the eldest at home poorly this week.  There’s only so much daytime TV even an eleven year old can watch.  So we dusted down some board games including a personalised Guess Who game I made for The Husband’s 40th a few years ago.  A laugh is always guaranteed with our version.

With the help of some selfies from family and friends as well as some editing of old photos, this was a fun gift to make for a personalised twist on this favourite childhood board game.

Now sadly, there were no ‘Herman’ eyebrows or ‘Alfred’ handlebar moustaches in my version.  But a human Ronald McDonald did feature as did Boris Johnson (who, actually, has a striking resemblance to ‘Susan’ from the 80s edition!).

 

To make your own

This is a great gift for a special birthday.  Or you’ve certainly enough time to create this for a unique Christmas present for a special someone.

I’m unable to share the actual document I used due to the personal photos included.  Sorry lovely people!

But if you’d like to make your own personalised Guess Who, there are a few tips below which you may find useful.  I’m sure there are other ways,  this is simply the process I used.

In addition to your computer and a colour printer, you’ll need:

  • Guess Who game, card inserts removed (search charity shops for older versions which have sturdier frames).
  • 2 sheets of light blue card
  • 2 sheets of dark pink card
  • 2 sheets of yellow card
  • 24 digital photos of family or friends.

Tips

  • Ask family and friends to take a selfie and send to you for editing (hats optional!).  Or crop existing digital photos you’d like to use.  Plain backgrounds work best.
  • Create a table in Word for your 24 faces.  I used two 3 x 4 tables (each table on a single page) and inserted a photo into each cell.  The size of each picture/individual card will depend on which version of the Guess Who game you are using. The newer editions require smaller sized inserts.
  • Optional: crop each picture using the circular cropping tool to make all photos more uniform.
  • Add names to each cell.  Be creative!
  • Don’t forget to ‘hide’ the table gridlines before printing.
  • You will need to print three copies of your table: one copy onto blue card, one copy onto pink card, one copy onto yellow card.
  • Cut the blue and pink photo cards to size and slot into the Guess Who frames.
  • Cut yellow printed photos to size.  These are your playing cards.

Get guessing!
