Dixit is a light-hearted party game that works brilliantly when played by a group of 5 or 6 creative people. It does not work so well with competitive, analytical types. Yes, there is scoring and a winner but this is a game where the spirit in which you play the game is more important than who won it.
The rules are quite straightforward. You are dealt a hand of 6 cards. The artwork on these cards is wonderful, somewhat whimsical, almost surreal. One of the players is nominated to be the 'Story Teller'. That person then chooses one of his cards and thinks up a clue about it. That clue can be anything, a single word, a sentence, a short story, even just a sound. The other players then look at their own cards and pick one for which the clue might also apply. The Story Teller then takes each player's chosen card, shuffles them up with his own and then lays them all down face up. Players then have to guess which card is the Story Teller's. This is where the skill of the Story Teller comes in. If the clue is too obvious, everyone will guess correctly and the Story Teller gets no points. If the clue is too obtuse and no one guesses correctly, again the Story Teller gets no points. After each round, there is inevitably a post-mortem discussion and then a new round begins with a different story teller.
Games take about 30 minutes.
