Dixit Card Gameby Jean-Louis Roubira
The first time I played this game, I was hooked. This is one of those rare gems that actually is fun for both adults and kids. Plus, you'll get a cool peek into the creative mind of your friends and family members. Don't peg yourself as a creative type? Don't worry. The fantastically strange and beautiful illustrations on the cards will make a storyteller out of anyone.
Synopses & Reviews
Every picture tells a story — but what story will your picture tell?
Dixit is the lovingly illustrated game of creative guesswork, where your imagination unlocks the tale. In this award-winning board game, players will use the beautiful imagery on their cards to bluff their opponents and guess which image matches the story. Guessing right is only half the battle — to really succeed, you'll have to get your friends to decide that your card tells the story!
Every turn, the storyteller will call out a short phrase or word to match the image on his card. Then each player will choose the card that most closely matches that phrase, and then everyone must guess which card the storyteller saw when he invented his brief tale. Correctly guess the storyteller's card, and you'll move ahead. Convince everyone else that your card is best, and you'll do even better.
Dixit is a wonderfully simple game, playable by nearly anyone with whom you share a common language. With a fantastic range of beautiful illustrations and rules that can be understood by children and adults alike, Dixit will appeal to anyone with an imagination. It's no surprise that Dixit won the Spiel de Jahres award for game design in 2010. It is brilliant and simple, beautiful and imaginative, and fun for all.
