I first played this among a Gaming Group I play with once a week, not long after it was one of the favorite "board" games among the other gamers at the Game & Hobby shop where we all play. Although it says 8+, my 7 year old daughter also took to it right away and it has since become her favorite game.

What I love about this game is it's a quick and simple play and for anyone and everyone. The set up is easy, deal six cards to up to six players, everyone picks a color (to represent them via Bunny on the score board and voting chips)and you pick someone to start. They pick a card from their hand, for example let's say Player 1 chooses a card with a Bunny on it and two doors before him, one red. This scene could remind the player of The Matrix (one commonly used with this card among our group), Alice in Wonderland (because of the white rabbit), Doors, Doorway or Entrance (because of the doors, obviously) or even Bunny or Rabbit (for the younger players, there are more rabbits in different decks).

Once he chooses his card, he says something that reminds him (like the above mentioned), let's say he chooses Alice in Wonderland as his phrase. The other players then pick a card from their hand, without revealing, that reminds them of Alice in Wonderland. Let's say Player 2 has a card with a cat on it somewhere that reminds him of the Cheshire Cat, so he plays this. Player 3 has a card that shows several cards stacked, the top having a Red Queen on it, reminding him of the Red Queen in Alice in Wonderland. So he plays this. Player 4 has nothing that represents the clue so he simply plays a card he wants to get rid of.

Then all the cards are shuffled up so nobody knows who played what, then revealed on numbers 1-4 (or however many characters are playing). Then each player looks at the cards and chooses which they think the first player played (not nessasarily which they think is most like the clue, but which they think that player most likely played) This game comes in handy when you play with people you know very well as you can anticipate what they chose sometimes based on their clues, their cards and who they are as a person. This makes the play funner sometimes and also challenges players to be more abstract with their clues.

Each player votes anonymously, vote card face down, for which card they think PLayer 1 played. Once all votes are cast they are revealed.

If everyone picked then right card, everyone but Player 1 gets 2 points (penalizing Player 1 by being too obvious with their card or simply nobody else had a card that also represents the clue). Bunnies are moved up according to points.

If at least one person voted for another card, then the players voting correctly AS WELL AS Player 1 all receive 3 points.

The Player whose card was chosen also receives an extra point. They receive as many points as there are votes for their card, and those who wrongly chose their card receive none.

If nobody chooses the correct card, everybody but Player 1 receives 2 points (again penalizing Player 1 but this time for not being obvious enough). They also receive 1 point for everyone who votes for their card.

The player who chooses a card this turn obviously does not vote as they already know the chosen card. You also may not vote on your own card at any time.

It's a very simple rule set up which goes quickly as points are quickly earned and everyone's bunny races to the end.

There is also a different set of gameplay for if you are playing with only 3 people, making it harder to narrow down the few cards by having opponets play two cards instead of one, providing 5 choices instead of 3 in a 3 player game.

Definitley Highly Recommended, you'll be buying expansion cards as soon as you fall in love with this game, too. I've already purchased two myself. A must have for any gamer no matter what level or type of games you love, this truly is one for everyone. Simple and Great fun!

I purchased this game after seeing Will Wheaton's show TableTop on the Internet.

Last night I brought it to a gathering of adults who had never seen a game like it, and were initially put off. After some cajoling, they stepped up and tried it. I won the first game, but everyone else wanted to play it again, and the second time a gentleman won who had been the toughest to convince to play.

The comments I received were like, "This is the most unusual game I've ever played," and, "I'm engaging parts of my brain that I never use!" It was a hit and a half, so if you're reading this you need to get this game.

Best with four, five, or six players. The more players, the greater the experience. Also keep one person in charge of dealing the cards, shuffling and revealing the selections, basically running the game. I filled this role last night since I owned the game. Also, find something to use for an active player token. It will cut down on some confusion.

The mechanic is familiar, picking out someone's card but Dixit adds a little twist and still manages to be fun. In Dixit, on a player's turn, he/she tries to convince others to pick his/her card through clues. Easy, except the player do not want everyone to pick it, just some. That player gives a clue, puts down a card, all others, pick a card from their hand and puts down a card, trying to get their cards picked so they can get points. It's a easy game in theory, but in practice, the cards themselves are sometimes not easy to give clues for, plus one may see the "clue" in multiple cards presented. Dixit is a wonderful light and enjoyable game, no pressure, no deep brain draining thought process required. Despite that, Dixit still makes you think about connecting the clue to the picture. Great for children and adults, the kids may not "get" it but the fact that they can play along and not feel left out is a giant step in the right direction.

This is an outstanding game for children and adults alike. In fact, playing with my 6 - 10 year old granddaughters is great fun. The children are more dramatic in the delivery of their one or two word stories. The adults more laid back. I bought the 2nd deck as well and mix them together. Dixit certainly helps children to focus and to use words carefully and descriptively.

Recently my husband had a game party and we had one table of Dixit. It's a game that is easily learned and enjoyed by all who play. Terri P Tepper

My wife Mary is a public school teacher who says this game is a fun-filled game for expanding vocabulary development. S.A.T. Prep, anybody? Forget story-telling and movie-related clues. Instead, have game players provide a clue with one or two vocabulary words that describe mood or theme, e.g., daunting, perplexing, divergent, mysterious - or for primary school examples: lost, excited, pleased, help. Players identify a card from their own hands that best matches the given vocabulary word and that is the basis for subsequent voting. This clue strategy should end the critique by some that the game is not fun if you know which movies and stories other players have enjoyed. Mary loves this game!

I purchased this game to play with my friend's 5 and 7 year old kids. They both picked it up right away and really enjoyed it. Not only is it a smart and creative game, but it has a small learning curve. A great introductory game for young kids and older people who think of Monopoly when someone says tabletop gaming.

In case you don't know how to play, look at the other reviews first. I think this game thrives in situations where most of the people don't know each other very well at all. It's not a good game for including one or two people who know the rest of the group worse than others. Doing well at the game is about thinking more like minded to others in the group than everyone else. As such, outsiders of a group will likely not enjoy it very much. If you are playing in a group that enjoys competition: I also suggest not allowing references specifically designed to target a single person playing. Example] "This card features an item I gave my husband for our first anniversary" while you husband is playing. This type of behavior makes the game feel very exclusive and is unfortunately a great winning strategy.

For a lot of groups it's a great game though! Just have had a few bad experiences. Also, oddly enough I've found sharing hands and guesses with a team is very enhancing.

Great game for groups of people. The art is beautiful and the rules are simple. It's a fun version of Apples to Apples with art instead of random topics. Great for families and groups of friends.

I had to get this game after I'd seen it played by Wil Wheaton on Tabletop.
I got the original one with the wooden bunnies to keep score.

This is so much fun. My husband and I introduce it to lots of different groups. We even let my nephew age 6 play and he liked it and won. The game says age 8 -12 but I think that is limiting this game. It is funny when we introduce this to teenaged boys because they get a bit wary of the colorful bunnies but once we get into the game they like it. I haven't found anyone that says they don't like it yet. That could just mean that we have the best friends and family ever.

Most people find the artwork kind of creepy. And the ones that have seen all of the cards before seem to have an advantage because they aren't obviously looking at cards they haven't seen before.

The key to get points in this game is to give clues about your card that aren't too obvious nor to vague. The replay is pretty good but it is a challenge to come up with new clues that haven't been used before with that card. Or if I do try to use the same clue I have to remember if I used the clue with this group of people that I've played with.

I think the next game challenge I will try is to have all the clues be songs so we will have to sing something. Probably that will not go over well with the rest of the players though.

I want to get more cards. Usually the people that play don't want it to end. When I have people over this is one of the easiest games to get people into playing. When they come over again they either want to play this one or Flashpoint.

Dixit is a remarkable game! Simple to learn, requires thought, creativity, a little bit of luck...
The best thing is: it doesn't matter (REALLY) if you win or lose, PLAYING is what is FUN!!!
