about this item

Codenames is a social word game with a simple premise and challenging game play. Two rival spymasters know the secret identities of 25 agents. Their teammates know the agents only by their codenames. 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 table. Their teammates try to guess words of their color while avoiding those that belong to the opposing team. And everyone wants to avoid the assassin. The game works very well with 4 players if you prefer to guess without help. Or you can add more players if you prefer lively discussion. There is also a cooperative variant where a single team tries to achieve the highest score they can by playing against the game itself.

And there are about 25 cards, each I with a random word spread across the table. one person from the team is s...  see moreof PRo86's review

    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.  see moreof Kenobi's review

      I love this game! It comes with cards that have one word on them. All different random things. To set up the game, you lay out the cards in a 5 x 5 grid. Players split into 2 teams, one team red the other blue. Each round, there is an indicator card that only one one player from each team can see th...  see moreof skizzo's review

        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 A Player of Games's review

          I was pleasantly surprised. This game is so much fun. Any age can play, but I would suggest 10 and over, or a teams of 2 with one adult to help the child. This game requires higher level thinking skills and creativity. I highly recommend this game.  see moreof AHA's review
