As I write this, 21 Republicans and seven Democrats are holding events to launch their presidential campaigns. They join a field of 14,609 members of each party who have already declared, or who have declared their intent to declare, or who have hinted that a declaring declaration might be declared. Pollsters already predict that the Iowa caucuses will end up as a wash, because each Iowan that participates will be backing a different candidate; in 72 percent of cases, the candidate will be themselves.

Point being: There are a lot of candidates. So many, in fact, that we realized we could throw them all into a game of "Guess Who?" and actually make it challenging. And so we did.

You probably remember Guess Who from its dumb Saturday morning ads featuring a bunch of drawings that look like Wooly Willy's extended family. The goal is to guess which card your opponent has before he or she can guess yours, by asking a series of questions: Does your person's name start with 'A'? Is it a man or a woman? And so on.

(Feel free to also read the Wikihow on playing Guess Who, which features, as step two, opening the game box. Step one is buying it.)

With enormous thanks to The Post's Chloe Magner,* who drew 16 of the 2016 candidates (get it), we made "Guess Who 2016," which you can play below. You can play with a friend over the phone or over chat or whatever, asking whatever questions you want. Or you can play the Magic Fix Robot™, which will answer the questions you ask so you can winnow down your guesses about which card the robot is holding. (Tip: Click the big cards to eliminate candidates that you know can't be the one the robot is looking at.)

Is it perfect? Let's put it this way: It is more elegant and less messy than the process by which we choose a president! So with that high bar set, go play.


* Seriously though, Chloe is great and her drawings are great.
