Do people still play real board games, I wonder. One thing's for sure, it's getting harder and harder to find a true toy store that sells these sort of games. The problem is, I guess, that with so many games now being transformed into games that can be played digitally there is a perception that if they ain't on your smartphone or tablet then they aren't worth playing. The introduction of the incredibly user-friendly iPad a few years back and the consequent rise of the tablet revolutionized the market even more and opened up all these games to a new technology geared audience. Choozwho is one of those such games. Do you remember playing a game called Guess Who when it introduced in the '80's. This fun and very entertaining free game is a two-player picture based guessing game where players take turns to identify the mystery celebrity orf rind that their opponent has picked by asking simple yes/no questions.
 
ChoozWho is a modern take on the classic board game  It is a two-player picture based guessing game, packed with the latest celebrities, where users pick a mystery face and have to take it in turns to try and work out who their opponent has picked. Users can play anonymously against other players or connect to their Facebook account and play against their friends. Earn virtual tokens from the games you win and collect and use then to unlock more features. To begin with, the user selects a card which their opponent will try to guess. If you play against a random player, you can choose a current celebrity or, if playing against a Facebook friend, you can pick from your mutual friends. Players then can ask each other yes/no questions in an attempt to eliminate some of the faces, until they feel confident enough to take a guess. You can select from the questions embedded in the game or make up their own specific questions. When you think you know your opponent's which card they can make a guess and the first player to correctly guess their opponent's card is the winner. The more games you win, the more tokens are earned and they can be exchanged for badges that can be used to give you advantages in winning the game.
 
I remember playing Guess Who when I was younger and it was a whole heap of fun and, thankfully, ChoozWho loses nothing in entertainment value when translated into a digital format. While the celebrities format is a whole heap of fun though, the best use of this game is when playing against your Facebook friends where, instead of having Bradgelina or Posh and Beck to unravel, you can delve into the secrets of your family of mutual friends. You can even modify the appearance of your friends' faces with a hilarious range of props. ChoozWho is a great free time waster that reintroduces the classic board game to the digital world to give hours of entertainment for friends and family.
