Description

Codenames duet keeps the basic elements of codenames - give one-word clues to try to get someone to identify your agents among those on the table - but now you're working together as a team to find all of your agents. (Why you don't already know who your agents are is a question that CONGRESSIONAL investigators will get on your back about later!) to set up play, lay out 25 word cards in a 5x5 grid. Place a key card in the holder so that each player sees one side of the card. Each player sees a 5x5 grid on the card, with nine of the Squares colored green (representing your agents) and one square colored black (representing an assassin). the assassin is in different places on each side of the card, and three of the nine Squares on each side are also green on the other side! collectively, you need to reveal all fifteen agents - without revealing either assassin or too many innocent bystanders - before time runs out in order to win the game. Either player can decide to give a one-word clue to the other player, along with a number. Whoever receives the clue places a finger on a card to identify that Agent. If correct, they can attempt to identify another one. If they reveal as many as the number stated by the clue-giver, then they can take one final guess, if desired. If they identify a bystander, then their guessing time ends. If they identify an assassin, you both lose!

Love this game! Just as fun as the original Codenames, but a slight variation that makes it a cooperative 2-player game (it can still feel competitive when you get frustrated though, haha). All of the pieces feel high-quality, and this game is well worth the price.

great mental game

This cooperative game gives your brain a work-out! I also think it helps improve communication skills, as well as helping you understand how others think. Basically you give one-word clues to get your partner to select certain cards while avoiding others. It's trickier than it sounds!

I’m so confused. My husband and I love board games! The reviews on this game are really good... it seemed right up our alley but we tried to play it a few different times and it just fell flat. It’s hard to understand the instructions, and once you get them, the game is lame!

My husband and I have played this game over and over now and finished all the word cards front and back, with some twice over. Challenge yourselves by covering as many codes and possible with the clue you give. We had so much fun! Just bought the Code Name Pictures version and expect to enjoy it just as much. My only complaint is that they should have included more word cards and fewer code layouts cards. Quality of materials was just as expected.

We became addicted to the original group Codenames when we played with family in New Orleans in September and then in San Francisco for the Holidays. When my husband and I got back home we wanted to play but didn't have anyone to play with. We were thrilled to discover the Codenames Duet that can be played with two players. We love this duet version. It requires more thought than the regular Codenames but it's just as challenging. However, we don't play the Duet version with traveling around the world with different missions. We just play to guess the clues and hope that we make it to the end without guessing an assassin. This is one of the best two player games for our game night. This game is also great for those who have adolescent children who have problems with competition play. Since it is cooperative, there is no winner AND loser. Both players win or lose. For those reviewers who complain that this doesn't play well as a group game should just play the group game.

We were slightly disappointed with this game. We love the regular Codenames! But the Codenames Duet does not work well as a team game, despite the fact that the box says more than two people can play. Would not recommend unless you are looking for a two-player game.

Wei - 4 years ago, Verified purchaser
One of our friends who designs boardgames said this was one of his favorite 2-player games, so we knew we had to check it out. My husband and I are big fans of Codenames, and I think we like this one even more than the original. It's different enough that it's worth the additional purchase. They really thought out the cooperative element, with some additional options for more variations. The game play is pretty fast. We typically get through a round in 20-30 min (if we win). We've also played this 4 player and that was fun too. Would definitely recommend!

I originally bought this game to play with my spouse. But we found that it works well for small groups too. Groups of four people is quite comfortable, but even six will work too. Much more than that, and it gets difficult to collaborate privately. Fun game! Different enough from the other editions to justify the extra purchase.

Such a fun game to play! It's so hard to find games that you only need two people for! My husband and I love it! It's challenging and it's a fun relationship building game :)
