Dixit: Pictures speak a thousand words

Dixit - Storytelling through pictures


Transport yourself to a world of imagination and storytelling through enchanting illustrations

Players: 3-8 players

Gametime: 30-60 minutes


Set up the game

  • Each player receives a set of voting tokens (numbered 1-6) and a player board.
  • Shuffle the beautifully illustrated cards and deal 6 cards to each player.

Choose a storyteller

  • In each round, one player becomes the storyteller. The storyteller selects a card from their hand and gives a clue or description about it, without revealing the card.

Select and play cards

  • After hearing the clue, all other players select a card from their hand that they think best matches the clue.
  • Players place their chosen cards face-down on the table.

Guessing and scoring

  • All the played cards, including the storyteller’s, are shuffled and placed face-up.
  • Players secretly vote on which card they think belongs to the storyteller.
  • Points are awarded based on the voting results:
    • If all players or no players guess the correct card, the storyteller receives no points, and all other players score 2 points.
    • If some, but not all, players guess the correct card, the storyteller and those who guessed correctly score 3 points.
    • If a player’s card is chosen by others instead of the storyteller’s card, that player scores 1 point.

Prepare for the next round

  • The role of the storyteller passes to the next player clockwise.
  • All players draw cards to replenish their hand to 6 cards.

When stunning artwork meets creative thinking you have Dixit. The gameplay is pretty straightforward with a unique twist that neither should all players guess your card nor should none of the players. The real charm lies in the stunning artwork adorning each card. These whimsical, dreamlike illustrations spark the imagination and provide endless possibilities for storytelling. Mix in your favorite theme, and you have a killer, hilarious and fun night. What sets Dixit apart is the hilarity that ensues when players try to interpret the clues. The game thrives on the joy of shared experiences and the sheer absurdity of the connections we make. It’s a game that rewards creativity, abstract thinking, and a willingness to embrace the absurd.
