"Simple, but still nuanced enough to be fun"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Game has a really simple idea and is at just the right level of competition. Not too happy-go-lucky, but doesn't bring out the aggressive side of that guy you know who takes games too seriously. It's cheap, fun, and great for almost any size group.

"Highly Recommended!"
5 stars"

This game is a brilliant gem. Word association and lateral thinking open up into a deeper strategy for experienced players. Players on a team can enter/leave at any time (except for the two Spymasters) so can play at the start/end of an evening as people arrive/leave.

"A new fav!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Once you've read the rules, and fumbled once or twice with matching your squares up properly, Codenames is an absolute fantastic party game. This game is definitely one that can change difficulty depending on who you're playing with – ridiculously fun, full of laughs and easy to play again and again!

Description

Two rival spymasters know the secret identities of 25 agents. Their teammates know the agents only by their CODENAMES.

In Codenames, two 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. Their teammates try to guess words of the right color while avoiding those that belong to the opposing team. And everyone wants to avoid the assassin.

Codenames: Win or lose, it's fun to figure out the clues.
