Dixit is an unusual card game and is difficult to categorise. It comes with a set of cards beautifully illustrated with storybook pictures. The box cover is an example of the card art.
Each player has a hand of cards. One player is the storyteller. He selects a single card, places it face down on the table and announces a clue about the card's picture. The trick lies in making the clue not too obvious and not too hard. All the other players now select a card from their hands and add theirs to the Storytellers. All the played cards are mixed and turned face up and the other players must now guess from the original clue given, which card is the Storytellers. Scoring is based on correct guesses, but the Storyteller is penalised if everyone guesses correctly and the clue was too easy.
