You might have been able to play Guess Who in your childhood years, but can you guess what they do?
If you aren’t familiar with the game, it’s the one where players have a board showing headshots belonging to different characters. One is selected to be the person the other player has to identify, which is done by asking questions like “does your person have blue eyes?” to help narrow down the choices. This goes on until one player can literally guess who the other is hiding.
But Vine user Olaf Falafel made the game so much more interesting. He posted an interesting video to explain the backstories of the characters featured in the popular Hasbro boardgame. Portraits of that familiar cast can be found rapidly flashing below. When you click the video, it pauses on one of them and explains what’s happened to that person since you packed up the game in your childhood years.
And boy, have things changed.
Remember Maria? That blasted character you just couldn’t guess when you were 8, causing you to throw a tantrum? Well, she’s apparently blackmailing four fellow Guess Who characters. And Philip, the guy with way too much facial hair? He was “implicated in operation Yewtree.” Clearly, they were better off with you.
