From the Manufacturer
Every picture tells a story – but what story will your picture tell?
Dixit is the 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!
A surprising game
Dixit is a ground-breaking game, featuring high-quality components and breath taking artwork and offering delightful and thought-provoking entertainment for all your friends and family.
Are you an inspired storyteller?
Every turn, the storyteller will call out a short phrase or word to match the image on his card. This card goes face down on the table while each player will choose the card that most closely matches that phrase and put it face down next to the storyteller’s. After being shuffled, all the cards get revealed and everyone must guess which card the storyteller saw when he invented his brief tale. Correctly guess the storyteller’s card, and you’ll score. Convince everyone else that your card better fitted the phrase and you’ll do even better.
Add dreams, journeys and quests
With every new expansion, more artwork and themes are brought into the game. Since its release in 2008, Dixit has had 5 expansions including Dixit Quest, Dixit Odyssey and Dixit Daydreams each adding 84 new cards which can be used with the original card game.
It’s no surprise that Dixit won the Spiel de Jahres award for game design in 2010 with its brilliant and simple gameplay, beautiful and imaginative design, and the possibility of creating fun for all.
Dixit is a wonderfully simple game, playable by nearly anyone with whom you share a common language. With a fantastic range of beautiful illustrations and rules that can be understood by children and adults alike, Dixit will appeal to anyone with an imagination.
- An easy and light game to enjoy with family or friends!
- Suspenseful and fun
- Use your flair and intuition to select the right image while avoiding the pitfalls set by the other players.
- 8+ Age
- 30-45 Minutes gameplay.

The art on the cards is very pretty in itself, and each card is fairly enigmatic. The board is part of the box - you get little wooden rabbits to run around a field for keeping score.
This game is very different to those our group usually plays, being about creativity rather than logical strategy. It is a nice break for between e.g. Eurogames, but would work equally well as a family game. It actually gets harder the more you play it as you have to think up new words for the cards you've seen, as using the same description again is going to give it away. Eventually the cards become a little familiar, but there are expansions out there to solve this, and simply not playing for a week or two helps with that.
1. You can play with between 3 - 6 players (there is a different version of Dixit which is for more players - best to have a look at the Dixit website to see the difference between the versions, as there is one which is for about 12 players, but I think more than 6 players will get unwieldy);
2. Each player has 6 cards, and after each round they draw another one - I will briefly describe the gameplay here, but the online video I mentioned above does a much better job of showing you what this is all about;
3. Each round a player whose turn it is (the Story Teller) says something which describes their card (can be a single word, a sound, an expression, a song, anything) and puts it in the centre of the table face down. The other players then each put a card which they think best matches the description face down in the centre of the table from their hand.Read more ›
The cards are wonderful, and triggered lots of discussion during the game after they were played.
One thing we found was that it works far better with 6 players, as this means there are more cards to choose from and more chances of getting a vote for your card. Loved the wooden rabbit pieces, although the scoreboard is slightly awkward to use - we made our own to travel abroad with.
Although quite expensive, I think it is great value for money. Highly recommended.
If you like precision in a game, clean-cut and neat ideas, maybe will be a bit exasperated by this game, because "Dixit" is about all that falls beyond those parameters.
There is also a possible danger area: as you're supposed to describe/reflect in any way that comes to your mind the picture on a card (using a sound, a song, a name, the title of a poem, a line from a poem, a riddle, a grimace, anything as long as it beats around the bush and is not literal), it easily triggered accusations such as "you made it too obvious" amongst kids. The very young will in fact find some degree of difficulty trying a more complex, lateral interpretation of images, therefore its 8+ age recommendation. But still worth playing with the younger children as they will be initiated into the art of the metaphor in all its forms (and they will have to make an effort thinking!).
It's also beautifully designed, with very high production values and illustrated in the style of European (mainly French) contemporary children's picture books illustrators. Actually, it does feel very European in concept and aesthetics.Read more ›
