Theme:  Dixit is a 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!

How It Plays

  • Game Mechanics:  This is a communication card game where players try to guess what card was described by the storytelling player.
  • Round Summary:
    1. The storyteller player selects one of their 6 cards and says something about it - a phrase or a word - describing it in a way that at least one other player will pick it out of a line of cards but not so detailed that all of the players pick it.
    2. The other players look at their hand of cards and pick one that fits the storytellers phrase or word.
    3. The selected cards are shuffled and played down where all the players (not the storyteller) vote - trying to guess which is the storyteller's card.
    4. Score points
      • The storyteller gets 3 points if 1 or more but not all players vote for their card. 
      • The other players get 3 points if they correctly identify the storyteller's card or 2 points if all players identify the storyteller's card.
      • Other players who receive votes for their card get 1 point per vote.
  • End Game/Victory:  The game ends after the last card is drawn from the draw pile and the player with the most points wins.
