What It Is
Can you guess the monster behind the door? That's the object of Who's Behind the Door?, based on the Disney/Pixar movie Monsters University. The first player to guess what monster lurks behind the door wins the game.
Set up your game board so that the two-sided wall and door are in the center of the game board. Shuffle the Monster Cards and deal one face down to each player. Set the remaining cards aside. Each player slides his Monster Card into the door slot on his side of the board. Be careful not to show your monster to the other player. Each player also gets 16 tokens.
Look at the pictures of the 16 monsters on your side of the game board. One of them is hiding behind the door. Players take turns asking yes or no questions to determine which monster it is. For example, you could ask, "Is it blue?" The other player looks at his Monster Card and answers truthfully: yes or no. Place a token over the monsters on your side of the game board that don't match the answer to your question. Any monster with a token on it cannot be the monster behind the door.
Once a player has figured out which monster is behind the door, he takes a guess. If he's right, he presses the button on the front of the door to reveal his monster to the other player. If he's wrong, keep playing.
The game comes with a door stand, a door, a wall, a game board, 16 Monster Cards, 32 tokens, a label sheet, and instructions. It is for two players.
Why It’s Fun
This is a really cute guessing game that features some of kids' favorite monster characters, Sulley and Mike. The swinging door feature is really cool and a dramatic way to reveal your card to the other player at the end of the game. The pace of the play and the complexity of the guessing process is very well thought out and engaging for kids.
