Dixit is a beautifully illustrated card game of mystery, guessing, and creativity.
One player is "Storyteller" for the turn. She chooses one of her 6 picture cards and describes it without showing the card - using a word, sentence, song or sound. However, she must carefully avoid being either too specific or too vague.
Then, the other players select one card from their hand that best matches the Storyteller's description. Their cards are shuffled together with the Storyteller's card, then revealed face-up on the table. Players now vote for which card they believe is the Storyteller's.
Points are given to the Storyteller and any player who guess correctly. Players who received votes on their cards also receive points. However, if EVERYONE or NO ONE votes for the Storyteller's card, she gets no points! Every other player then receives 2 points.
