Gift Idea - Dixit Journey

Another fun new family style game is Dixit Journey by Asmodee.

About -  Dixit Journey is a wonderful way to practice your skills at creating unique and subtle clues, while your friends test their abilities to bluff and mislead. A picture is truly worth a thousand words in this beautifully crafted board game that will be enjoyed by all.

For those of you that have heard of Dixit, Dixit Journey is as easier, updated version on the original game.  There is a revised rulebook and a new game board with instructions featured right on the board.

For those of you that have't heard of it, here's how you play.

Each player is dealt 6 cards.  The each person takes a turn being the storyteller.  The storyteller selects a card from his/her hand and tries to give clues about the card.  They can tell a story, give hints, sing a song, whatever.  The point is to give clues that are associated with the chosen card. 

Then all of the other players select a card from their own hand - that may or may not fit the description - and give it to the Storyteller.  The storyteller mixes the cards and then shows them to the players.  Then everyone votes on which card was the original card the storyteller was describing.

But here's the catch.  The storyteller wants some of the people in the room to guess the correct card, but not all of them.  If the storytellers clues are too good, and everyone picks the right card, the storyteller gets no points but everyone else does.  And if no one guesses the right card, the storyteller also gets no points.  The other players all want to do their best to play a card that matches, because if someone else guesses their card, they get additional points.  After a certain number of rounds, the player with the most points wins. 

To Buy - My girls are a bit too young, so we haven't had a chance to try it out yet, but I am excited to play.  We'll be having a game night with friends in a couple of weeks and it's first in the lineup. Dixit Journey retails for $32.99, but you can get it for just $19.99 on Amazon right now.
