WHO’S SHE? A new guessing game known as “Who’s She” is ready to dominate the board game industry, showing girls and women alike that they are capable of anything. The game centers on highly accomplished women and their achievements, personality, and interesting facts about their lives, teaching the players as well as providing entertainment. “I would buy it because it seems like a very informational but still fun game,” said Grace Caldwell, 9.

When game night rolls around, “Guess Who,” is always a favorite.

Both players would have a board full of different looking characters, and would secretly choose one in their mind. The goal for the opponent was to ask yes or no questions in order to determine which character their competitor chose.

They would ask questions such as “is your character white-skinned? Do they have brown eyes? Do they have glasses?” This would go on until one player had narrowed their board to one character.

However, those days are over. Today’s children will be asking new questions- “Did your character win a Nobel prize? Was she a spy? Did she make a discovery?”

A new game is about to hit the shelves: “Who’s She,” another guessing game. However, this one is a little bit different.

It is formatted exactly like the previous guessing game except for one thing: all of the characters are highly successful women who have made a difference in today’s society.

Among these 28 different characters are Amelia Earhart, Malala Yousafzai, Harriet Tubman, Frida Kahlo, and many more accomplished women that have lived in the past couple centuries.

The goal of this game, according to Warsaw-based company Playress, is to highlight women based on their achievements, not their appearance, as per Kickstarter.com.

 They also want to encourage girls that they can do anything, and educate on these powerful women of several different backgrounds, professions, and ages who have made the world a better place.

 “I think that a game like this is a great idea, and I think it will really encourage young girls to follow their dreams and show them that they can become anything,” said Megan Radakovich, 9.
