A Guess Who game designed for pupils revising Organic Chemistry functional groups. Inspired by the childhood game 'Guess Who?' and played in a similar way.

Print out pages two copies of page 1 and print on the reverse page 2 so that when folded in half (as in the picture) the title page obscures the view of the functional groups.
Print out two copies of page 3 and cut out the rectangles.
Players face each other.
Each player chooses a functional group and keeps it a secret.
Players take it in turns to guess the identity of the other player's chosen group using clues associated with the different groups.
Players use the white rectangles to cover the functional groups eliminated from the game.
First player to guess the other player's functional group wins!

Keywords: organic chemistry, functional groups, alkanes, alkenes, alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids, esters, halogenalkanes, game. Guess Who?
