Description

Codenames is a top-rated spy game for multiple players that you won't stop playing! The two rival spymasters know the secret identities of 25 agents. Their teammates know the agents only by their CODENAMES given on the cards. The teams compete to see who can make contact with all of their agents first. Spymasters give one-word clues that can point to multiple words on the board. Teammates use these clues to guess words of the right color while avoiding those that belong to the opposing team. And of course, everyone wants to avoid the assassin. This game is a great way to engage with up to 7 other players and makes for a great family pastime.

Q: Are there refill cards for Codenames? We love the game and have used the same cards over & over.

submitted by Techie - 2 years ago
  • A: Hi there- no, there are not refill cards for Codenames. However, there are several alternative Codenames versions (like Codenames Pictures) that you can purchase to switch things up!

Q: Is this game any fun for 2 players ?

submitted by BOOP - 3 years ago
  • A: No; you need a minimum of 4 players. The point of the game is to beat your opponent by giving clues to your team so that they're able to guess your collection of words before the other team guesses all of your opponent's words.

Q: Is this game in English? When I look at the words on the pictures it does not look like it is.

submitted by BrookeS - 4 years ago
  • A: Yes, it is in English

This game is so much fun! We played this game on a multi day trip with several couples and had such a good time. Synopsis of game play: Divide into two teams and set up the board in a 5x5 grid. Choose spymasters that are responsible for giving the clues and the field operatives which guess the cards to select from the grid you’ve set up. You then draw a key card that shows which cards are neutral, which cards belong to the the two teams and the one assassin card. Choosing the assassin card ends the game. The teams prepare to play by trying to come up with a word that will allow for a card, or ideally multiple cards to be guessed during the turn. The spymaster cannot say any of the words on the board or words that are contained within words on the board. Screenshots of the rules for more specifics. Be creative and take some risks to jump ahead of the other team.

Great Thinking Game

Great for a group of teens or older! It is a great game that requires thinking but is still hours of fun. It is truly unique rather than a spin off of another game.

Best Game Ever

5 out of 5 stars
SingingToad - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
This is a great game. Seemingly endless word combinations paired with a completely different experience depending on the team makes for a game that never loses it's excitement. This game is for the loud friends that argue for fun and the quiet friends that love to strategize and think. I recommend this to everyone out there! It's good, clean fun.

Such a fun game!! Love playing it with my foreign friends here at college. It takes some strategy but is honestly good for any age group. The rounds last a long time and it you won’t ever run through all the cards since there’s words on both sides!
