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!

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.

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...see moreof the reviewer's review

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 :)
