    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.

    Award-winning storytelling

    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.

    Imaginative gaming

    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.

    Dixit is a game with the simplest rules that anyone can play, but to play well requires a certain kind of thinking. Everyone gets a hand of picture cards and on your turn you choose a card, describe it with a sound, word, sentence, quotation etc. and place it face down. The other players must select a card from their hand that matches your description, again placing it face down. The selected cards are all shuffled. The other players then vote on which card they think was the original, but here's the clever part - If they all get it, or if none of them get it, you get no points and everyone else gets points. You have to make your description a little vague to include one or two other cards, but not so vague that it no longer really describes anything. If you manage this, you get points, those who found your card get points, and those whose card fooled other people get points. The player with most points wins when all the cards have been drawn.

    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.

    This is an excellent game to play with the family (although best played with ages 12+ to adults), as younger children (less than 8yrs old) will struggle to play it. The best way to actually see what this game is all about is to search for the video review of it by Table Top by googling it - excellent online review of them showing you what the game is all about, much better than what you would be able to understand just from a textual review. The game itself is a bit like the concept of the board game Balderdash (or for those of who remember the TV programme, 'Call My Bluff') but with picture cards. I would summarise our family's findings with it as follows:


    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.

    This was a fantastic find - an utterly addictive game that all my friends and family loved instantly and wanted to keep playing, and rushed out to buy. It can work on many levels - we played with young children and with adults, and the mechanisms work effectively for both. I've also played with different groups of adults - some where everyone knew each other extremely well, and some where there were strangers involved, some regular games players and others not - and it works each time. At first people tend to be cautious and go for "obvious" phrases, but they soon realise that doesn't work and they get creative. I've watched it being played where the players agreed to just use single words, and that also worked fine.
    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.

    Dreamlike, poetic, with a touch of the surreal... my children love this game. They are aged 7 and 4 and are always asking to play it. It reminds me a little bit of Djeco's "Blah blah blah" -another favourite- where you become a storyteller using a randomly drawn card in combination with a pick of your own hand of cards, or you choose which two may be linked by a common denominator, etc. But "Dixit" is even more about thinking outside the box and about letting your imagination be jump-started by abstract, evocative images and let's see what your unconscious mind regurgitates.

    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.
