Childhood nostalgia for board games and the old-school have merged in a Noisey-developed rendition of Guess Who?, a guessing game that became popular in the United States in the early ’80s. Called “Guess Wu?“, their version uses te same concept behind the original, only the faces adorning the game board are illustrations of Wu-Tang Clan members and a host of Wu-Tang affiliated artists. While not available in stores, it is relatively easy to transform the old Milton Bradley version into its Hip-Hop inspired counterpart, thanks to Noisey’s inclusion of printable artwork and instructions.

The object of the game? “Be the first to guess the identity of the mystery rapper on your opponent’s card,” which means players should go into the game with an extensive knowledge of the artists included within. Just like in the game’s original incarnation, the goal is to use the process of elimination to leave only one character still standing (for example, a common way to start Guess Who? is to ask “does your character wear glasses?” and so forth). This version of the game is much better suited for Heads, and can be made extremely easy or extremely difficult (“did your character ever play a Jamaican nurse in a film?”).

As an added bonus, Noisey is going to be giving away a fully-assembled copy of Guess Wu? to one or more lucky fans. All one has to do to be entered into the running is tweet @NoiseyMusic.
