[Review] Dixit

DIXIT is a board game that won several prestigious awards all across the world.

In Dixit you have to choose a card from your hand and say something that can let the other players guess what card is among the cardas the orther players will punt in the middle of the table. The clue must not me too easy or descriptive, because you get some points if at least 1 of the other players, but NOT ALL the other players guessed right. 

The Good
  • EASY: Ten minutes to explain the rules are enough
  • FAST: Half an hour a game.
  • REPLEYABLE: Different cards and/or different human beings will generate totally different outcomes.
  • BEAUTIFUL: The artworks are really good and set the right mood.
  • KID-FRIENDLY: Your kids will have no problem to play with you in this game.
The Bad
  • EXPENSIVE: I know it's not SO expensive, but all the box is totally useless. The deck of cards (and, optionally, a bloc notes to keep track of the score) are all you need to run the game.
    The verdict
    DIXIT is a great game, a little too overpriced. If you have the money, it's a great game.

    Don't know where to buy it?

    NOTE: If you buy from here I will get a little income, with no extra cost for you. Just to be straight.
