One the best family/play with friends game ever,
This review is from: Dixit Board Game (Toy)
I play a lot of hobby board games with family and friends but this one tops them all.
I heard good things about this game from podcast, reviewers but when reading description I was a little unsure at first, "a story telling game?" I Don't think I will like this. But i brought it on a wim, read the rules and was still unsure, but I got it out with some friends and after a couple of rounds we all got it, and we loved every turn we played.
I'm not going to go through the in and outs of the rules it will blow your mind.
And you don't tell story's, you pick a card a say sentence about that card. It really easy to understand the rules and give a good exsample of how to play. It Plays good with 4 people, plays better with 5 or 6 people, I've played with 12 people after a Wake 6 teams of 2 which was even better. It really lighten the mood and helped them to take their mind off of things for a bit.
The scoring is so balanced in ever game I played so far no one has run away in the lead or got left behide, but saying that the scoring is proplery the one bad thing about the game, it's the insert of the game and the design is stepping stones and if you are not careful you could back track or skip a point of someone. But this is not a game breaker just deal with it.
If you like this and want more then there is Dixit 2, just more cards to mix in, and Dixit: odyssey more cards a better scoring track and plays up to 12 players.
