Dixit - A Family Review

If we could use only one word to describe Dixit—it would be whimsy! Luckily, we get way more than one word. Which is good, because we could go on and on about this beautiful game. Dixit has been a favourite of our family for a number of years thanks to being a simple game which is fun for players with a large range of experience.

The first thing that struck us about this game was the art. The humor and care that went into each card is evident, and it makes the game visually interesting to play. The actual game is also easy to learn but leads to a lot of laughter and trickery. There’s nothing better than the feeling of having the perfect card to fool the other players with!

9yo: “It was so fun even though I didn’t win. I liked how people tried to trick me and how sometimes I thought my card was bad, but then I tricked people!”

Dixit is a wonderful game to play when you’re catering to a large age range. You choose the clues you give, so you can choose an easy one for younger players, or you can pick a really complex one to stump Grandpa. We also found it created opportunities for our kids to learn new vocabulary. Sometimes the one-word clues we would pick, like “melancholy,” would be met with confused looks, giving us the opportunity to explain.

Plus, Dixit is also a great game for new or inexperienced game players. It’s one of Jen’s favorites to bring for team-building at work—it takes less than five minutes to explain and can lead to funny word associations with your colleagues (or a look into how their mind works!).

11yo: “I love how the art was done. I could play this every weekend!”

The biggest downside of Dixit? You can run through the entire deck before the end of the game, and it can become easier to guess who has which cards. But never fear! Dixit has released a number of expansions to bulk out your deck and add even more spectacular art to your gameplay.

So if you’re looking for a simple-to-learn game filled with whimsical art and clever wordplay, Dixit is something you need on your shelf. Especially if your kids are like ours and might play it on a Saturday morning while we sleep in.

Helpful hints

  • Requires at least three players, which can sometimes be a barrier.
  • Want to add more chance to the game? Add a random art card from the draw pile every turn and see if it tricks the players into picking it!
  • Purchase Dixit expansions to add new beautiful art cards to the game and increase the deck size.
  • Dixit cards can be used to expand your Mysterium visions deck!

Description

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! Every turn, the storyteller will call out a short phrase or word to match the image on his card. Then each player will choose the card that most closely matches that phrase, and then everyone must guess which card the storyteller saw when he invented his brief tale. Correctly guess the storyteller’s card, and you’ll move ahead. Convince everyone else that your card is best, and you’ll do even better.

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. It’s no surprise that Dixit won the Spiel de Jahres award for game design in 2010. It is brilliant and simple, beautiful and imaginative, and fun for all.

"When we were kids, what could be more universal and fun than our wildest hide-and-seek games? With this game, I wished to allow everyone to reconnect with their inner child…

How do I use a word or a sentence to put my gaming partners on the right track, while maintaining enough ambiguity? A space of emotions and surprises, Dixit has been able to captivate so many, from the youngest to the not-so-young, taking us to the limits of our imagination. But above all, Dixit brings us closer together. Perhaps because for us, Image is fundamental."
