Dixit is a game of the ULTIMATE family. Fun and carefree, Dixit also requires skill, logic, creativity and intuition. 3 to 6 people can play at the same time and each player first gets 6 cards with the picture. These cards can be specific or abstract, and the player in turn gives directions on his cards. Players want to give a good clue by describing their card, but they don’t want it to be so obvious, because all other players will also throw a card that they think fits your clue best. Catch? Nobody knows who this card belongs to. Players guess which card is yours (you don’t guess this round), and those who guess your card correctly and whose own cards guess those of others get points. Incredibly creative and smart. It’s our first recommendation for family board games. Check the price – Dixit.

If I dream of giving Dixite a good return for his money. This fascinating game is slightly more complex and requires more skill. The themes are similar, but when I play, when I dream, players have to wear a sleeping mask to imitate the person going to bed, but they also have to hide the cards from them. The group gives advice on cards; the fairies will help you, but the bogeyman will try to confuse you. Collect points at the end of the game for correctly guessing and remembering your guesses. Since she plays 4-10, this is our first recommendation in the Best Board game for the Big Family category. The price of a check is when I dream.

Code names are a big family game. Like Dixit, code names require logic, creativity and intuition, but that’s where the similarities between the games end, because code names is a complicated game with words and images, using clues and a killer card. To play, 25 cards with a wide variety of images are revealed. Each team has to guess all their cards well in order to win. Each team chooses a Spymaster to give advice about the cards, and the advice should be a word and a number. The word describes the cards, and the number indicates how many cards are connected to the word clue. Opposing teams can have between 4 and 8 players. In our list of the best 2-player board games you will also find the 2-player Duet version.
Players want to guess as many cards as possible for the other team in each round, giving a fairly concrete clue and avoiding the killer card! Check the price – code name.

In the 2-4 players there are similarities in the structure of the game and in the dice component, but the mechanisms of the group game are influenced more than in Catan.
