Codenames, a party game suitable for 2-8 players, sees you working alongside your teammates and nominated spymaster to find your fellow agents in the field, while also making sure to avoid the innocent bystanders - and the dangerous assassin!
Czech Games Edition's Codenames is a fantastic, easy-to-play word association game. Players split into two teams, each team having a nominated spymaster. Spymasters are given a grid that details the exact location of all their agents in the field. It is up to the spymasters to communicate the locations of the agents to their teammates. However, there is one big catch! The locations are all associated with words, and the only way to communicate these is to give one-word clues.
Once a clue has been given, it's up to the team to work out which words the spymaster is trying to communicate to you. If you select a correct word, well done, you’ve found a fellow agent! Be careful though, select a wrong word and one of three things can happen! You could have mistaken an innocent bystander for an agent, a rather foolish thing to do! You could have found one of the other team's agents, which will simply give them the upper hand! But worst of all, you could find the dangerous assassin. Find him, and it's game over for you my friend!
Work together and find all your agents to be victorious and successfully complete your mission! This game will have you on the edge of your seat. Be careful, because when you think you’ve found the word, you may just start second-guessing yourself!
Codenames is a great party game and one that has grown in popularity massively. It's an essential game for anyone's collection and it’s sure to be a hit with all!
