This gives me the feeling of Apples to Apples, or Cards against humanity, but what I like better is that scoring is better in this game. Plus I love all the strange artwork that is on every card.
As a game, it is a little less robust than Attribute (which in my mind is its closest competitor). Specifically, it can reward a player making an in-joke or reference when they know only one other person is familiar with it. So, very similar, but inferior, to Attribute.
I love this game. Every play is different from the other. One card has infinite meaning and a lot of interpretation. You get to know better the people who you are play with. Very easy to learn, easy to teach, fun to play. Totally approved.
Interesting concept but can be kind of boring in the end and really make players feel excluded. It's all about using all your inside jokes and what not against the players who don't have any inside jokes with you.
The rules refer to the current player being a "story teller". I have never played this game where anything longer than a phrase or sentence was used to describe the card being referenced. This is a light filler that is nice for a group when there's simply not enough time for anything more in-depth. It's great for non-gamers as well, and serves as a nice ambassador to the hobby.
I got this game for 3 reasons: 1) deduction, 2) beautiful artwork, and 3) it expands my copy of Mysterium! This game is a great replacement for games like apples to apples and cards against humanity.
Party game, not my sort of thing due to needing to describe or then identify the card. I do understand why it's rated well by others but as far as party games are concerned I'd much rather play Wits & Wagers or Apples to Apples, or even Compatibility.
some think it replaces Apples to Apples/CAH, but not at all. Those two games are 'totalitarian' in that ONE person chooses the best; Dixit's mechanic is quite different, each player votes on what they think is the player's original
Best-with-6. A fun party game in the style of Apples To Apples, but with pictures and a lot more creativity. The artwork is fantastic and very fitting for the game. The game can fall flat with the wrong group, however. Most of the time, it's a good time with some good laughs and occasional insights into people's minds. INCLUDED: Dixit Quest Dixit Origins
Every time I play this game, it seems like it goes down a rating. It's an OK game... for the first few times you play it. After that, you basically NEED an expansion to not get bored out of your mind.
Changing rating to 6.5, as unless your prepared to buy lots of the expansions it begins to feel repetitive. After 3 plays : Rating 7. The wife enjoys this game, so i'm sure it will be get played some more. Watched on table top. Not necessarily a game I would pick to play. As a light filler, could be fun. However, I would imagine it would need the right crowd. Wife liked it so...
Such a fun different style of game. The art is phenomenal. This game can easily be expanded to include more players as well. We usually play until the draw stack is exhausted and loop back through to the start. I would recommend an expansion or two if you decide to play like we do though.
It is a fine party game, but there are many more games that I would rather play. The game is vulnerable to rewarding inside jokes and can be a little AP inducing when you have to give a clue.
This game gets me out of my comfort zone, which I think is good for me. It's a lot of fun matching the clues to the cards, but being the storyteller can be uncomfortable. It's a great game and I want to play it a lot more.
Matching up player-created descriptions of surreal artwork with other surreal artwork. Similar to Apples to Apples, with cool art instead of adjectives, and without as many random (stupid) responses. Scoring means you want to be vague, but not too vague.
Not super interesting, giving clues is semi-hard/semi-random, guessing is semi-interesting/semi-random. Most things that happen in the game make me say "...oh..ok" and we move on. Definitely not a party game, just a light filler.
I can credit Dixit as the entry point for several of my game playing friends and family. Its accessible, silly, familiar, and the expansions keep it constantly growing. But, it never managed to scratch my gaming itch. I liked to play, but I always wanted to play something more thinky. Also, there just isn't enough hand-circulation and certain cards always manage to plague me until the end. I'd always prefer Mysterium to this.
