Guess Who?

So I spent the better part of today turning a clearance Guess Who game into a personal game to give to Sydney for Christmas...

I bought the MARVEL game for $7.99 with the idea to cover all the X Men, Super Heroes and Villains with Pictures of Sydney's family and cousins. I just printed out photos to match the size of the card sets and then attached my pictures over the comic book characters. (I just may or may not have glued John's photo over all the Mr. Fantastic cards)


With 24 different characters I was able to do both sets of Grandparents, mom and dad, all her cousins, the dog, the cat and her closest second cousin.

Think she'll like it?

How fun is that?! I love that game, how much more fun would it be if you knew all the people? Great idea, Amy!

Kristen said...

Your brilliant mind blows me away!! What a neat idea!

Kristen said...

Oh and I'm guessing Sydney doesn't look at your blog if you're posting her Christmas presents on here. She could get an easy peak at her present before Christmas. ;) I remember when I was a kid, we had to try a lot harder to snoop for our presents. Man, kids have it easy these days. haha :)

how genius are you?! wow. sorry i haven't called all week. i gave up on the print-to-bag idea & instead am gluing to the bags. =( NOT as brilliant as truly creating FULL OWNERSHIP of a game like you!!!!! why do we not hang out more?

rip said...

Again Amy's incredible originality and creativity saves the day. I love how much you embrace your talents and we sure do watch them multiply!
And yes! We are going to be to the Christmas dinner. In fact Heidi wants to host two tables. I better call someone really soon to RSVP.

Hear, hear with everyone else. I love this so much! My neighbor had Guess Who when I was growing up and I loved it and have always wanted it. We just finally got it (the electronic version) a couple weeks ago when it was on sale. I may or may not have had Ben play it with me that night. I can't wait until Katie gets old enough to play it with her! I may borrow this idea too, and since on the electronic version each character set are are all on one big card and then you shut the little door on them (so they're not individually on each door), so it would be so easy to make up my own card with people's pictures!
