A planned unscripted television adaptation of the board game was in early development at NBC and will be produced by Endemol Shine North America and Entertainment One (Hasbro's subsidiary).  People's names [ edit ] A giant-sized game of Guess Who? at the Spiel festival, 2008 Name Modern commentators have noted a bias toward white and male characters in Guess Who. In 2012, a six-year-old girl wrote to Hasbro asking why there were only five female characters to choose from, against nineteen male. Hasbro's response noted that each characteristic in the game – such as wearing glasses, or having red hair  – was based on a numerical equation, and deliberately appeared exactly five times. The company wrote that the game was intended to "draw attention away from using gender or ethnicity as the focal point, and to concentrate on those things that we all have in common, rather than focus on our differences".  Special editions which have different faces have been released, including Star Wars, Marvel Comics and Disney. There are smaller, "travel" editions that have only 20 different faces. In 2008 and 2010, extra and mix and match games were released. [ citation needed] A computer game based on the series was released in 1999 by Hasbro Interactive.
The original version of Guess Who featured only one non-white character – Anne, who was redrawn in a subsequent edition as a white woman.

In response to Hasbro's statement, the child's mother said that she thought identifying physical differences was "the whole point" of the game,  and asked "Why is female gender regarded as a 'characteristic', while male gender is not?"  The New Statesman criticized the "tone-deafness" of Hasbro's remarks.   Blogger Avital Norman Nathman suggested that the decision to include five women in the game may not have been a conscious choice, and that this was a problem in itself.

" 'Guess Who?': Unscripted Adaptation Of Board Game In The Works At NBC From Endemol Shine & eOne". Deadline Hollywood . Retrieved April 19, 2021.In the United States, advertisements for the board game often showed the characters on the cards coming to life and making witty comments to each other. This caused later editions of such ads to carry the spoken disclaimer line "game cards do not actually talk" to meet Federal Trade Commission advertising guidelines requiring full disclosure of toy features unable to be replicated with the actual product.  Strategy [ edit ] Popular belief is that a binary search is the most efficient approach to the game, where each question halves the number of possible identities.  This can be applied by asking complex questions - such as "Does your character have red hair, or glasses, or a big nose?" - where a yes or a no eliminates exactly half of the remaining characters.  Such a strategy takes only four questions to reduce the field to three people, giving the fifth question a 50/50 chance of identifying the opponent's character.
