Product description

Style Name:Codenames

Product Description

Codenames is a social word game with a simple premise and challenging game play. Two rival spymasters know the secret identities of 25 agents. Their teammates know the agents only by their codenames. The teams compete to see who can make contact with all of their agents first. Spymasters give one-word clues that can point to multiple words on the table. Their teammates try to guess words of their color while avoiding those that belong to the opposing team. And everyone wants to avoid the assassin. The game works very well with 4 players if you prefer to guess without help. Or you can add more players if you prefer lively discussion. There is also a cooperative variant where a single team tries to achieve the highest score they can by playing against the game itself.

Safety Warning

not appropriate for children under the age of 3 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I'd heard on a popular board gaming web site for geeks that this was a particularly good game, ideally for larger parties but also playable for even just two players.

I actually own a similar independently created card game called "Trix" which has a similar concept of linking words.

The basic idea is that 25 cards are laid out (out of quite a large selection of double sided cards) each with a noun on it. A team consists of one person who is trying to convey a message/hint to their team members. They can provide a one word clue and indicate how many of the 25 cards they feel relate to that one word. Only 6 or 7 of the words actually are wanted by each team, the rest are either the opposing teams' cards or are innocent bystander cards. One word card is an assassin and loses the game instantly for any team that picks it.

I won't give you the entire rules now, they are available online anyway if you want them. This game is clever in the way it takes a simple game that takes minutes to learn and is basically a form of charades with more intelligence and direction, and themes it nicely into a spy game.

When I first got it, I couldn't wait to give it a go, so I immediately tried a 2 player game (not recommended particularly) and this was just OK and I could see why although it's just about playable, it's not a good idea.

I play and own (far too) many board games.

This is the sequel / spin off from the original Codenames game by CGE.

The first game is simply fantastic - this changes things up and replaces single word tiles for abstract drawings.

I think this improves things for bigger groups as far easier to see across the table - it also allows for an easier variety of words to be chosen and interpretation of each picture.

Definitely worth buying, even if you own the original already!

Works tremendously well with all ages. Good introduction to board games for those not regular players. No complicated rules. Little time explaining at the beginning so you can avoid the boring bit. Everyone SO ENJOYS IT. Never played it with new people without everyone wanting to play it over and over again straight away.

However, It relies heavily on trust and honest game-playing. Essentially one person on a team sets a puzzle and then watches the rest of their team heinously misinterpret their puzzle and get everything wrong. Naturally the puzzle-setter finds it very, very difficult to watch this happening without screaming in frustration, let alone some crafty eyebrow-wiggles or shakes of the head. If your players might be tempted to do this (or to throw a tantrum if they see the opposition team doing this) then try some variation on asking the puzzle-setters to leave the room during negotiations. Our favoured tactic (because a lot of the fun comes from the setter of puzzles watching the puzzled get mangled) is to make the person wear big sunglasses and cover their face like a shady spy.

Enjoy!

This is a very fun game, which my family who aren't card game players people very much enjoyed.

The concept it quite simple, but the playing hard in the best possible way. However, the instructions are not very clear, best to search for a better explanation. Especially on the double agent card (basically whichever team goes first has an extra word to get and this card is used for it)

Excellent new version of codenames, I'd still recommend the original as well as they both feel different. The pictures version works better when playing with people who speak different languages or younger children, where as the word version is an excellent test of your vocabulary and how well people know how you think! I've had many fun times playing this game.

Excellent game.
Word association with a spy theme.
each game unique. suitable even numbered teams from 4-8.

Mental note - if playing with couples - ensure each side has the same number of couples or split the couples up - as they have massive advantages over non couple teams.

Bought for Christmas - perfect game for extended family. Nice and short, easy to explain, challenging to actually play well. Only potential problem is if someone in the group is not quite so bright, or doesn't quite get it first time, they could be made to feel a little bit stupid. However, really good game, best for 6-8 people of similar intellectual capability.

A game i first tried at a board game shop in london, was very unsure of it at the start but then I was hooked. Very different type of game and very easy to setup.

The fun part is just trying to understand what the spy master is thinking and i've pulled off a lot of amazing combos of 3-4 words and it just feels amazing.

It's also brilliant when you have no idea what the other person is trying to say, a lot of laughs.
