It's a turn-based game to ask yes and no questions to guess the your opponent's character/card through the process of elimination based on the description (e.g. is he/she wearing a hat?). It's fun for the entire family and the game can go quick if you're short on time or just want a faster paced game. " β€”ADubb222
