Codenames is a social word board game with a simple premise and challenging game play. Fast paced and a great party game that's sure to keep the whole family entertained, it's inclusive game play makes the game challenging and fun!

The game starts as two rival spymasters know the secret identities of 25 agents. Their teammates know the agents only by their codenames. You can choose to compete in a team or by yourself, while you try to see who can make contact with all of their agents first!

Pay attention as The Spymaster gives out a one word clue that can point to multiple words on the table. Teammates must try and decipher the clue to try and guess the words of their color while avoiding those that belong to the opposing team.

Remember, pay close attention to clues and the spymaster but watch out and always avoid the assassin!

The game works great with 4 players if you prefer to guess without help or you can add more players if you prefer a lively discussion. Players can also play a cooperative variant where a single team tries to achieve the highest score they can by playing against the game itself.

This is a game that plays really well with 2 people on up... but REALLY shines with a group of 6 or more. Appropriate for a wide age range (I've played it with my kids). Super simple to learn and play... but will keep you thinking about it for days after you put it down.

This is such a great family game. My husband, who hates games, even likes this one as it is intellectual and thought provoking, as well as educational Would absolutely recommend for families with older children. Best new game since Settlers of Catan.see moreof the reviewer's review

This is our go-to game for a game night. What I love about this game is that it can last as many rounds as you want and it encourages you to think outside the box and learn about how your teammates think!see moreof the reviewer's review
