The guessing game who am I is enjoyed by both children and adults. The practical thing is that you don't need a lot of game material and you can play it spontaneously. It is suitable both as a party game in a convivial group with friends and as a game for children's birthdays. Here we have compiled a selection of the best Who Am I ideas and examples.
Who am I – instructions and rules
The party game “Who am I?” can be played particularly well on a children's birthday party or in good company at a girls' evening or with friends. With smaller children, it is better to ensure that the puzzle does not become too difficult. The areas “fairy tale characters”, “comic / cartoon characters” or “animals” may be suitable topics for the little ones. In the adult game, you can choose the more difficult variant with famous people from politics, film or music. The aim of the puzzle game is to find out as quickly as possible which person or which animal you represent yourself through deductive questions.
Rules of the game of Who am I
The guessing game who am I is suitable for children from about 6 years and you need at least two players.
As game material you need for each player:
- Post-it notes or paper
- if necessary adhesive strips (a greasy cream will also work)
The course of the game
- First of all, it is determined which area is to be guessed from. In the adult game, the choice usually falls on celebrity guessing. It is easier for children to guess a fairy tale character or an animal. Then each player thinks about a famous person, or possibly a fairy tale or animal species, and writes them down on a piece of paper. The other players are not allowed to see the term.
- Next you stick the labeled piece of paper on the forehead of the opponent (if there are more than one player, the other person). Exactly! The note must be pinned to the forehead so that you cannot see for yourself who or what you are portraying.
- Now the guessing begins. In a clockwise direction everyone can ask their neighbor a question, which can be answered with “yes” or “no”. For example, you can ask: “Am I a man / woman?”, “Am I very old?”, “Have I died yet?” or in the case of animals: “Am I short / tall?”, “Do I have fur?”, “Do I make sounds?” etc.
- Whoever guesses correctly first emerges as the winner of the game. The remaining players can continue guessing or you end the game and choose new terms and start over.
Ideas for who I am
In order to make the birthday or game night a little funnier, you set a bet before each round of the game. This can look like this:
- with children : Hop like a rabbit, cackle like a chicken, roar like a lion, do ten pushups / squats, etc.
- in adults : spend a round, drink a schnapps (then the game will automatically become the Drinking game ), kiss the person sitting next to you, take off an item of clothing, etc.
