Guess Who Wrote It
Guess Who Wrote It is a simple party game that helps people get to know each other better. It involves writing things that you like and dislike on slips of paper or notecards and then having people guess who wrote them. This party game is good for teambuilding purposes, for families, or for teachers in classrooms. It works for all ages, though young kids could use some assistance.
Setup for Guess Who Wrote It
You will need several notecards or slips of paper and pens. Distribute these to all of the players.
How to Play Guess Who Wrote It
Have the moderator announce the theme of the game. For example, “foods” or “vacation spots” or “unique places.” On the paper or notecards, have everyone draw smiley faces on three cards and sad faces on three other cards. On the smiley face cards, have each person write down three things they like. On the sad face cards, have each person write down three things they don’t like. For example, for the theme of “foods,” a person could write down specific foods the love on the smiley cards, such as “salmon sushi,” “durian fruit,” and “cheesecake.” On the sad cards, a person could write down things they find to be yucky, such as “worms,” “mushrooms,” and “white chocolate” (or whatever items the person dislikes).
Collect everyone’s cards and shuffle them. Sort them into the smiley face and sad face piles. Take each card and read them aloud. Have each person guess who they think wrote the card. For each person who guesses correctly, they get a point. The person with the most points wins!
