From the box “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.”


Loy says: “Dixit is a visually stunning game – just beautiful.  In this game, you select a card and an idea or image that this card represents to you. Other players select a card from their hands with the same idea, and then everyone tries to guess the original card. The artwork is funny, disturbing, dramatic, surreal, and lovely; but the mechanics of the game put artwork and ideas foremost. This is a wonderful game for deep thinkers.”

Dan says: “Dixit is a beautifully artistic game, great for parties, with a twist on the standard play and vote mechanism common in modern games.  In it, one person is the story-teller, picking on of their cards and giving a sentence that describes it.  Everyone else picks a card from their hand to play that is intended to match the description.  The cards are mixed and players vote on the one they think is the card the matches.  Points are awarded to the story-teller only if their card is picked by some of the people, while guessers get points if everyone picks right/wrong, for guessing right or for having their card guessed.  As such, the story-teller must not be too obvious with their ‘story.’  This is an enjoyable game for up to 6 players.”
