This product is subject to specific safety warnings
One player is the storyteller for the turn and looks at the images on the 6 cards in her hand. From one of these, she makes up a sentence and says it out loud (without showing the card to the other players). Each other player selects the card in their hands which best matches the sentence and gives the selected card to the storyteller, without showing it to the others. The storyteller shuffles her card with all the received cards. All pictures are shown face up and every player has to bet upon which picture was the storyteller's. If nobody or everybody finds the correct card, the storyteller scores 0, and each of the other players scores 2. Otherwise the storyteller and whoever found the correct answer score 3. Players score 1 point for every vote for their own card. The game ends when the deck is empty or if a player scores 30 points. In either case, the player with the most points wins the game. The base game and all expansions have 84 cards each.

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.

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. The Story Teller then shuffles the cards in the centre placed by all of the players and reveals them to everyone and asks everyone to vote for which card they think is the Story Teller's - the Story Teller obviously does not vote and the other players cannot vote for their own card;
4. The players (other than the Story Teller) then put numbered tiles down on the table face down, once they have seen everyone's card in the centre to try to guess the Story Teller's card - once the tiles are placed, they are revealed to see who voted for whose card;
5. The key is the Story Teller must use a clue such that at least 1 person guesses his/her card, but not so obvious that everyone guesses the card - if nobody guesses the card or everybody guesses the card, then the Story Teller gets no points but everyone else gets 2 points;
6. If at least 1 person guesses the card but not everyone, then the person guessing the card and the Story Teller each get 3 points;
7. If people guess one of the other players' cards instead of the Story Teller's, then the person whose card it was, gets a bonus point for everyone that voted for their card.
8. The Story Teller changes each turn with play being clockwise/anti-clockwise/age order (whatever players prefer). There is a board with small rabbits which you move around reflecting the number of points, and once you get to 30 you win - the game board and pieces could have been better (especially considering the quality of the cards), but it does the job.
1. If you play with your children (younger than 12yrs old), then you will have to keep the clues short - one word or a few word easy clues - it is still fun, especially if with the younger children the clues you use are to describe friends or family members !
2. Children under about 8yrs old will struggle with it - we found that anyone less than about 7yrs old would not like it, and children from about 7 or 8yrs old only like it to describe friends and family members taking into account the strange pictures on the cards ! - that can still be quite fun and sometimes hilarious !
3. You will need to buy the expansion packs to get the most out of it, as you will soon find (we felt this way after playing about 4 - 5 times) that the cards provided limitations without the expansion packs. I have purchased packs 2 and 3 in the set - '2' was not as good as '3', but it was still useful to have the additional cards. I will probably purchase pack '4' at some point, but it is best to review the expansion pack reviews, as some reviews show that some expansion packs are more suited to families than others;
4. The expansion packs allow you to simply mix all of the cards together so that you have more possibilities, and with 5 - 6 players, you will usually get through the whole deck in the standard board game and then have to re-deal the discarded cards to continue play;
5. The game itself is excellent to get people thinking, especially if you are playing with people aged over 12yrs old to adult age, which I think is the best age group for this game - as you can use more cryptic clues, such as 'It came as a surprise'; 'He wished he was somewhere else'; 'So much to think about, so little time' etc - whilst with younger children you will probably be using simper clues such as 'watch out' or 'too many choices', etc;
6. It is a game that you can play in about 30 minutes, irrespective of the number of players. It is also a game that you will probably come back to time and time again. We are board game fans (Monopoly, Scrabble, Talisman, Pictureka, Pictionary, you name it !), and this is one of the best games we have played, and has the most re-play value when bought with the expansion packs (I would say just buy the standard game first to see if you like it, and then buy at least 2 expansion packs if you do - I would have probably gone with packs '3' and '4' rather than '2' and '3' based on the reviews of them);
7. We've found it's much better playing this with some background music on at the same time, as then people don't mind waiting so much for the Story Teller to come up with their clue ! - otherwise, we have also sometimes imposed a 30seconds/1min timer if someone is taking too long to come up with a clue.
The way the game works is that you the storyteller tells a story, then every player hands the storyteller a card that best matches that story, then play continues clockwise. A well designed and creative game that is presented beautifully.
Everyone starts off with some fantastically drawn cards in their hands. The person who's starts is the Storyteller, who selects one of their cards, and places it face down. They also say a word, sentence or even a sound effect that is associated with that card.
The rest of the players then choose a card from their hand that may also be associated with that word, sentence or sound effect. They then hand their card (hidden from all!) to the Storyteller, who shuffles all these cards, and places them face up, in a row, for all to see.
Everyone knows which card THEY contributed, but they don't know which card is the Storyteller's - the idea is that all the cards that are on display could be a potential candidate.
Points are scored depending on who guess what. If you've played Fibbage (by JackBox) then you will be very familiar with the mechanics of this game.
The more you play, the better everyone will be at describing their images, and leading everyone astray. Also, the more players that are involved, the more enjoyable the game is. Four really is the minimum.
Very enjoyable, very easy to get into, and loads of fun. Recommended.
Easy to pick up and simple to set up. Great illustrations which took my attention many a time!
Many add on packs with different designs as well.
A bit expensive these days with so many phone and pc apps around but we have had a lot pf pleasure from it as it is more inclusive than the aforementioned.
