Despite having the mother of all colds I trundled my way to Cultureplex, Manchester on a cold winter evening to support a wonderful social enterprise  called Heart & Parcel.

This event had been organised by Clare and Karolina Directors and Founders and of Heart and Parcel to explain the process of publishing their inspirational cook book highlighting recipes cooked by English Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) to improve their English skills.

WHO'S SHE? -

a guessing game about extraordinary women

 

In December I was over the moon to receive my WHO'S SHE? - a guessing game about extraordinary women.

ABOUT WHO'S SHE?

WHO'S SHE is a two player tabletop game about courageous women who changed the world. From Hatshepsut to Frida Kahlo. Discover their incredible adventures!     

Clever icons printed on the board give you a quick summary about their life stories.  

Guess their identity by asking about their accomplishments, not their appearance, with questions like: Did she win a Nobel Prize? Did she make a discovery? Was she a spy?

The game includes 28 biography cards full of fun and interesting anecdotes about their life stories.  

  • 2 boards, each with 28 frames featuring stunning watercolor portraits printed directly on wood 
  • 2 legend strips to help you understand the icons 
  • 28 'mighty women's' biography cards packed with fun and interesting anecdotes 
  •  the rulebook
