Hold your breath! The illustrations are revealed. They all have something in common: an enigmatic sentence. Now be careful, only one of the five images is the key. You'll have to use flair and intuition to find it while avoiding the other players' traps. Dixit: a surprising, convivial & exhilarating game to enjoy with your family and friends.Contents:

A strange game where players have a hand of cards, with some superb artwork on them, and the active player says a word / phrase / tells a story / sings a song / makes a noise about one of his cards the other players then look through their hand and places a card they think matches this face down. The active player then takes all the cards, including his own, and shuffles them then places them face up in front of everyone stating which order the cards go in, players then vote for which card they think is the active players.
Scoring goes as follows:
This is a quaint and quite funny game, especially in the right company but this did not really float my boat as this kind of creative on the spot type thing just makes me uncomfortable as I am just not that good at it. Good fun was had by all but this is not one I would leap at playing again given a choice.

|Dixit is an "Apples to Apples" like game, but instead of single words, everyone has a hand of six whimsical pictures. The turn leader says a word / phrase / song / noise to describe one of their cards, and everyone else puts forward a card that also fits the description.
Everyone then picks which one of the cards they think the description actually applies to. Points are awarded to the describer only if the description was accurate enough for some people to choose the original card, but fuzzy enough for some players to have picked the wrong one. Bonus points are then awarded to the owners of the wrong cards that were picked.
Dixit is fun, enjoyable, and a welcome change from Apples to Apples. Everyone can grasp the game immediately, and the possibility of using personality quirks of the players in the description allows genuine crying-with-laughter.
The artwork on the cards is very high quality. But the deck of cards is a little small. The expansion deck (Dixit 2) containing more cards is a welcome (almost a must have) addition.
Suitable for 4 - 6 players. Playing with 3 doesn't work, and due to the requirement of counters and voting tiles, more than 6 isn't easily achieved either.
I recommend this game to anyone and everyone. Simple, fun and funny.
