DIY Guess Who Game Templates

You may remember a loooong time ago we shared this DIY Guess Who Game. In the original version, we replaced the cartoon people with pictures we printed out of our family. We chose to do it with family because we just figured it would be a lot of fun to play at family gatherings and describe people you know personally. Now we're back at the DIY Guess Who Game, but this time we're bringing some of our favorite fictional characters into the action!

This is a lot of fun to play when you are a big fan of a particular TV show or movie. You can really get creative with your questions. "Does your person have his mother's eyes?", "Did you person ever live in the back of a professor's head?" (Obviously, it's Harry and Voldemort, respectively.)

To make your own, you need to find the right photo, download it, crop it, size it, arrange it, blah, blah, blah. But since we're so nice, Sarah and I have gone through all the trouble of finding the photos, sizing them correctly, and arranging them on these printable templates for you! All you need to do is print them out, cut them up, and insert them into your game!

Harry Potter
Parks & Recreation
The Office
Gilmore Girls

A few tips:
1. I suggest that you use card stock when printing the photos, as you don't want your opponent to see through you card. (After all, it is a game of secrecy...)
2. Some of them may be a bit big for your game's dimensions, so you'll just need to trim them down slightly to get them to fit just right.
3. If you're having trouble finding an original Guess Who board game, try your local thrift store. There are always tons of old games tucked away somewhere, and it's where we found ours.

We hope you have fun playing with our Guess Who templates or making your own! This game would be great this holiday season! What other characters would you want to see templates for?
