|Dixit Journey is the new version of the award-winning game of storytelling through imagination and clues where one picture is worth a thousand words.
In this new version featuring a gallery of artistically designed cards that offer simple images for easy individual interpretation, younger players now have the chance to stretch their imaginations and incorporate their best vocabulary skills, all in the fun of creative play. The challenge is for the leader of the round to give a clue that is subtle enough to ensure that at least one player (but not all) will understand which card is his/hers and vote for that card. Points are scored in relation to the identification of the storyteller’s card. The players move their icons on the scoring track based on the number of points they earn each round.
Although there are no changes in the overall game play of Dixit: Journey, it does contain a completely revised rulebook, a new game board that displays a simplified scoring track, six labeled sections along the outside for placing the face-down Dixit cards from players’ hands and a scoring reference area, where new players can quickly see how to mark their scores based on the outcome of their guesses.
The latest edition of Dixit is a springboard for new players due to the revised rules and simplified game board. But long-time players of the game will enjoy expanding their current collection of Dixit cards as well.
Dixit: Journey comes with around 80 new unique illustrations by a new artist Xavier Collette.
Playtime: 30 minutes
