Whoowasit? is an exciting interactive electronic board game where a team of up to four players have to work together to beat the evil wizard. A wise king protects his castle and its people from the evil wizard with his magical ring. The king’s men inform him that the evil wizard is approaching. He looks for his ring but discovers that it has disappeared. The evil wizard put a spell on someone to steal it, but who? The king knows that the evil wizard will reach the gate at 6 'o' clock. It is already 12 noon, so he sets off to search for the thief and find his ring before the evil wizard appears. The castle cat was at the gate all night and saw no one leave, so the thief must still be inside! Was it the maid, the baker, the bishop, the knight or perhaps any of the other people who live in the castle? Since only children can understand the animals when they speak, the cat tells them to feed the other animals and ask them for clues. Players take turns to roll the dice and move the children playing pieces around the castle game board. Then press the buttons on the interactive electronic chest to listen to the animals' instructions. Once you have fed an animal it will give you a clue to help you discover the thief and get the ring from their chest in time to save the kingdom. But be careful not to run into the castle ghost, as he will chase the children back to the nursery. With three levels of difficulty programmed into the electronic chest, there are hundreds of outcomes to every game. Electronic Chest: On/Off switch, 10 room buttons and five action buttins. Game board: 10 suspect playing cards. Cat Game board: spaces to hold the food tokens and the key tokens. Game board: 10 rooms with four moving walls. Whoowasit? is the perfect family game for 2 - 4 players aged 6 and up. Each game is different and you will want to play again and again. Are you clever enough to outwit the wizard and find Whoowasit?

The game has 3 difficulty levels. When you switch the electronic chest on, it will automatically come on the easy level every time. To select medium level, press the rocking horse symbol followed by the star once and for difficult, press the rocking horse once and then the star twice. Start on easy level whilst getting the hang of it. Note that on medium and difficult levels, the dungeon and tower do not open right away. This should be mentioned in the instructions; we thought our game was broken but deeper into the game, hidden 'switches' open the tower and dungeon.(and lock it again, sometimes locking the player inside!)
On easy level, there is no access to tower and dungeon.
I hope my instructions might help someone:
Set up the board. Each player chooses a coloured plastic playing piece and places it in the nursery. The ghost starts in the courtyard. The circular food and key pieces are placed face up in easy reach of the players. The suspect character cards are placed face up in 2 columns next to the RHS of the board, in a row along the topside of the board or in a row along the bottom edge of the board. The main thing is, they should be placed in an orderly fashion so that it is easy to scan them when it comes time to eliminate a suspect. The cat with bag board is placed near the circular food/ key cards.
All 4 doors are placed in position on the board. Players cannot move through closed doors. On medium and difficult level, the electronic box will let you know when to open the doors. On easy level, the doors remain closed.
Player one rolls the dice.Read more ›
Simple to play, Really good fun, Co-operative gameplay (so no family arguments), and it is time limited to 30-40minutes, which is all i can take of any board game.
My son(6) wants to play it every single day (even 3 weeks after owning it). Perhaps becomes a bit easy after the intensive play we've given it, but well worth the money.
"Whoooohhhhh, I aaammmm the ghoooosssttt - I move forwaarrrddd 3 roooommsss."
A well designed, colourful and intriguing game that can be played at easy or more involved levels. It only took 1 game with mum assisting to give the girls the basics of playing the game.The players work together to solve the riddle of who stole the ring, which stops the usual competetive rows between the girls. The time limited play keeps up the momentum/excitement and stops the game dragging or becoming boring. It is different every time and we really look forward to playing it.
We find keeping a rough note of which animal asks for which food and what instructions they give, helpful as an aid to memory.
Well worth the cost and a great buy.
