A picture is worth a thousand words!

Dixit is a lovingly illustrated game of creative guesswork, where your imagination unlocks the tale!

HOW TO PLAY?

  1. On your turn, as the storyteller, choose a card from your hand and give a clue for it (word, sentence, song, etc.).
    For example: "Journey".
  2. All other players choose one of their cards that best fits your clue. Shuffle and reveal all chosen cards.
  3. All players then secretly guess which card is yours, using the voting tokens. Once all votes are done, the scoring begins!

Contents:

  • 84 image cards
  • 1 scoreboard
  • 6 wooden rabbits
  • 36 voting tokens
  • rules

This was a real surprise game for me over Christmas, I wasn't expecting much but got drawn into the frankly weird game mechanic here, and turned out to be quite good at it! Players have a hand of cards and choose to lay one down (face down) and throw out a word or phrase which may or may not be an apt title for the card. Other players then choose which of their cards best fits that word or phrase and place their cards down, which then get shuffled and turned over. They then have to vote for the card they think the original player put down. Points are then awarded and players pieces move around the board. This game as others have said has some outstanding (but weird and a bit dark) artwork but the game itself is utterly engaging and fascinating as players try to read into each others minds! Well worth a purchase as a family game, and with plenty of expansions you will hardly ever see the same card twice (which can happen if you just have the base game)

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:
If All or None guess correct the Active players card then 2 VP for All Other Players
If only Some guess correct 3 VP for Active Player and Correct Players
Each Incorrect Guess 1 VP for Card Owner

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.
