Customer Reviews

Fun Game, but can't play too oftenI am a board game enthusiast and we host a game night weekly. As a result we have upwards of 50 plus board games an are always looking for something new and fun to jazz up our weekly fun time with friends.We really like this game. It was a great time to play and is super simple to learn. You can explain it pretty quickly and everyone will be able to get it. We even used it as an ice breaker for my work team, and in the 15 minutes we had set aside everyone understood the game and was playing along great. (If you want to do this I suggest you set up boards at home, take a picture and project it)This was also one of the 3 games I brought home to play with the in laws for Christmas. We get together with all of my husbands cousins and their kids every winter holiday and we are always trying to find something fun to do with everyone together and this was a great option as the younger kids (around 10 years old) were able to catch on fast and we were able to play with a group of teams of 5 each.If you like games like Taboo, Anomia, or Telestrations I think you will really like this game. It is fun to play all together and we have lots of fun with it, but like those games you can't play them too often. I have found that if we play any of these style of games too often you get used to how people describe things, and you remember previous clues from previous times and it takes some of the fun out of the game. Ultimately that is why I didn't give this 5 stars is because this game doesn't have longevity. We play it about once every 3 months or so it hasn't been an issue, but we definitely burned out Anomia, and Taboo so be cautious so you don't burn out this fun game! 4One of the best games I've played in yearsThis is a really cool game for 3-4 people (can work with 3, designed for 4). Maybe more.In short, you lay out 20 cards with odd images on them--like a windmill but with dragonfly wings instead of blades. One player on each team is a spy master who knows where their team's spies are hidden in that 4x5 grid of cards and provides clues to finding them. The other player has to make contact with their spies. First one to find all their spies wins. The trick is that the spymaster can only give 1 word and 1 number as a clue--no accents, gesturing, or any other information. Just a word and a number (like "wings, 3"). That word is the clue and the number is how many images it applies to. Sounds easy, right? It's not. This is a game of a) understanding your partner and knowing how they will interpret both the word you give them and how it relates to the cards before them, b) getting REALLY creative with your clue giving, and c) giving just the right clue that conveys the images you want without leading them down false paths. You can quickly tell who is on the same wavelength and who is not.I've played this with several other couples to great effect. My six year old also likes to play it. She's surprisingly good at guessing, but her limited vocabulary and knowledge of some terms makes her clue giving a little simple and often misleading ("round" for example, where my wife might say a more nuanced "rotund" to distinguish between a round person and a picture of a globe). My daughter also gets a little distracted by the fun of giving clues and sometimes loses the part about only giving it for her side's spies. So it's fun to play with her for the pure joy of it and it is great for building game play logic and pattern recognition skills--but you probably need at least an 8 year old to really start making it fun AND more competitive. 5I love Codenames DuetI love Codenames Duet, my housemate and I play it all the time, we thought this would be fun for a change. It s super not fun at all. I think it s just so objective with the pictures instead of words that it s almost impossible to play. We tried twice and after a few minutes of just staring at the cards and not figuring out anything to say that was either way too obvious, or way to obscure, we put it away and played the duet one. It might be fun for kids, but we didn t find it fun. 1A fast and entertaining social deduction gameThe original Codenames is a very popular social deduction game. It is one that I have bought for my relatives who would never play something like Dominon but who were looking for a light, entertaining game to play with friends.Codenames Pictures is basically the same game but with fewer cards in play which speeds up game play while making the play more complex and the cards show pictures instead of words. Many people find the pictures to be easier to play with than the original game with words. The game can be played with four or more people and although four is good because it works well, larger groups add more energy and fun to the game.To play, you lay out a grid of 5 x 4 of the picture cards on a table top. The picture cards each have an image on them. Those playing form two teams and each team chooses a clue giver who draws a clue giver card. Each of these cards has a grid that corresponds to the picture cards which have been laid out. It shows neutral cards, the major spy card, and the blue and red cards. Each player gets a tile.During each turn, the clue giver gives a one word clue about the card that his or her team should pick up based on the clue card. The clue will correspond to the picture on the card that the clue giver hopes that team will choose. The teammates talk it over and choose a card. If they pick the correct card, then the clue giver puts a token with their team color on that card. The same team can then go again. But, if they choose the card which belongs to the other team, then a token with the other team's color is put on the picture card and the turn is over. If the major spy card is chosen, then the game is instantly lost. This goes on until *. The winning team is the one with the most cards claimed.The game is very entertaining and because the game play is quick, you can play several games quickly so that people can learn as they go. 5As Good As the OriginalThis game surprised me! I have played the original Codenames in the past and quite enjoyed that game, but was hesitant when I saw that this game used pictures. Would that make the game less difficult? More difficult? Would it be as engaging and interesting as the original?Yes. It is excellent, the pictures are varied and interesting, and it makes for an unexpectedly challenging and entertaining game. I highly recommend this game to anyone, whether you have played the original or not. 5Great light-weight family gameGreat light-weight family game. Follow-up to the runaway hit Codenames. A nice game for family get-togethers and parties. The main difference between the original Codenames and this, is this one has no words, but uses strange pictures. Each team tries to identify their spies before the other team or before they hit the "assassin." Players can only give clues that include 1 word and 1 number. The number represents the cards that have the word in common.High Recommended For: Families and for get togethers and for Classrooms.Recommended For: More serious gamers who want a light-weight, less complex, but still somewhat puzzle-like game.If you like this, you should get . . .: Codenames,USAopoly Disney Family Edition Codenames Card GameType of Game: Family / PartyTheme: WordMain Mechanisms: Deduction, Tile Placement, TeamFun factor: 7 out of 10Players: 2 teams (4 - 8)Playing Time: Short (15 minutes)Complexity: Very Low (2 out of 10 - ten being extremely complex)Component Quality: Very Good (8 out of 10)Artwork: Good (6 out of 10)OVERALL RATING: 7.5 out of 10 4Gamers and Non-Gamers Enjoyed and Played AgainI got both the Pictures and regular Codenames versions of this game for holiday family gaming and these were a hit. Even the non-gamers liked it and were talking about it the next day. The game play was deceptively simple and easy to learn--always a bonus--but made for a unique and challenging game each time it was played. And it was played again since everyone liked it and decided to play it again the next night instead of trying a new game. So this earns a place in our games library and a place on gift lists when looking for an affordable gift. We had family 11 years old to 70+ play it together so it appeals to a wide audience, too.Since this is a Vine review, I want to explain that I bought both of these games before the holidays and later was offered a free copy of the Pictures version through Vine after we had played it a few nights. I decided to get the second set since it was a hit so I could share with the family that loved it so much. This was our successful winter holiday 2016 game and I'll take it to the beach for our next family gathering this summer. 5This is a fantastic family gameThis is a fantastic family game. Lots of interactions. I have the word edition too. With this edition you can involve younger children!!! Loads of fun. 5LOVE Codenames HATE this versionThis was the most disappointing Christmas gift we bought. We love the original game and my 17-year-old daughter is very visual and artistic so we assumed the picture version would be fun. As you see in the pic I uploaded, the pictures are so convoluted (another friend speculated LSD had to be involved in the brainstorming session for this) that it makes it about impossible to play well. Every card has so many fine, completely unrelated details that it would be like playing the regular game with five very different words printed on EACH card. Taking the simplest card I photographed with the fewest extra elements...the genie card alone has you avoiding every clue that could cause someone to touch a genie (as if the word "genie" was on a card) along with the need to avoid muscles, chest, arms ponytail, mustache, man, etc. due to the visual elements of picture vs. a word. This makes it PLENTY more challenging than the original and I think we would have enjoyed the game with that level of extra challenge. We can't understand why the extinguisher had to be added, so that words like smoke, fire, trigger, emergency, rescue, etc. have to be avoided. It definitely doesn't get easier than this one. Many have many more unrelated elements. The pictures are also a little creepy. Even though I only photographed 9 cards, it is played with a grid of 20. If you've never played the original, buy it. If you have, examine this photo carefully and decide if you think you'd enjoy playing by the rules of the originals. 1It can be a pretty dull game if each team gives a one-word-hint that ...After reading very opposite opinions about how complex and interesting the game is and then buying and playing it I can finally say that: The complexity of the game depends on the ability and competitiveness of the players. The game consists on two teams and one person of each team (called spymasters) giving one-word-hints to make his or her teammates touch some pictures in order to win (the game tells you which pictures your team is supposed to touch/ guess). The starting team has to guess 8 pictures while the second team has to guess 7 pictures in order to win. Now, it is possible to give one-word-hints that are valid for 1 or more pictures and there is the magic. It can be a pretty dull game if each team gives a one-word-hint that is only valid for one picture (if every turn each team guesses only one picture, the team with the fewer cards will always win) the interesting part is to figure out hints that your team can relate to 2 or more pictures. 5
