They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but can it be worth a thousand points? Dixit is the visually stunning card game that flexes your creativity and imagination, and tests how much you know about your friends.
Every player is dealt beautifully illustrated cards. The pictures are abstract and often fantastical. The players take turns being the Storyteller. The Storyteller’s job is to create a description of a card — it might be a title, a tale, a poem, a song, or a sound. Everyone then places a card face up to match the Storyteller’s description. Once all the players have played a card, each guesses which card is the Storyteller’s, which inspired the original description. Guessing correctly earns points, as does having other players vote for your card.
It’s a simple concept, but a wonderfully complex game — Storytellers must be subtle without being too esoteric. Convince players that your card matches the description best, and you’ll rack up points.
Dixit can be played with as few as three players, but works best with more. It’s so easy to learn that anyone over 6 years old can play. Gameplay is about 30 minutes.
