Dixit + Expansions
You hold a beautiful dream like, tarot shaped card in your hand. It depicts a kitty cat pouncing on a ball of snow. Or is that a fish bowl, not a snowball? More importantly what sentence should you give to describe it? Icy floof? Crafty critter? Aquatic abomination? If it's too easy or too hard you wont get any points... how best to describe it?
Dixit (Base Game)
Dixit is a beautifully crafted and wonderfully creative social deduction game, that will test just how well you can understand and interperet eathothers' clues.
The game works by having one player as the storyteller per turn. They get to look at the images on the 6 cards in their hand. From one of these, they make up a sentence and say it out loud (without showing the card to the other players).
Each other player selects the card in their hands which best matches the sentence and gives the selected card to the storyteller, without showing it to the others. The storyteller shuffles their card with all the received cards. All pictures are shown face up and every player has to bet upon which picture was the storyteller's.
If nobody or everybody finds the correct card, the storyteller scores 0, and each of the other players scores 2. Otherwise the storyteller and whoever found the correct answer score 3. Players score 1 point for every vote for their own card.
The game ends when the deck is empty or if a player scores 30 points. In either case, the player with the most points wins the game.
Game time: 30 minutes
*Expansion decks can be used on their own, however the counters and score trackers in the base game make play easier and are thus recommended to have.
