About Dixit in General:
I love this game and pretty much all the friends I've played it with also really enjoyed or loved it. One of them even said it was their favorite game after the first time we played. Be warned though, I haven't tried playing this with some of my friends since I'm pretty sure they won't like it. It's hard for me to quantify what type of person likely would or would not enjoy Dixit, but some words I would use to describe the former would be thoughtful, introspective, creative, and empathetic. People who primarily like their games to be loud and/or competitive are probably less likely to enjoy this.

About the Different Versions:
Asmodee did a really good job of making the different versions of Dixit as confusing as possible. Here is what I was able to figure to the best of my knowledge:
All versions of Dixit use the same card size and have the same card back so they are all compatible with each other.
There are 5 sets: Dixit, Dixit Quest, Dixit Odyssey, Dixit Journey, and Dixit Origins
Dixit Jinx is a totally separate game with square shaped cards
There is also one other game I found called Chinese Dixit 6 that also has square shaped cards

We recently played this game at a friends' house (8 people altogether), and it was so much fun!!! So, we bought one ourselves. It does stimulate imagination, abstract thinking, the skill of analogies, and creativity. I am a little skeptical about how much fun it would be with 3-5 people, but who knows.

Update, a few months later: The game continues to be fun, so much so that we even bought the extension pack. Just yesterday we had the opportunity to play with 3 people only (all adults), and it was pretty disappointing at first - it all came down to guessing between 2 cards, and there was practically no suspense or challenge. We were about the quit when one of us came up with the idea of having each person hold 7 cards and play 2 cards per turn, including the storyteller, who had to put down a "primary" and a "secondary" card (we had to guess the primary to get points, but s/he got points for his/her secondary if it was guessed too). This changed the incentives and choice-making and guessing dynamics dramatically, and it made the whole thing much more tricky (more strategy involved), but it was fun!

Dixit is a fantastic party game somewhere between Balderdash and Apples to Apples, but with it's own style and flair. The "storyteller" for the round chooses a card from his hand and, without showing it to anyone else, says a word or phrase he thinks suits the card. Everyone than choses a card from their hand that they think matches what was said. All cards (including the storyteller's) are shuffled randomly and then everyone votes on which card they think is the storyteller's.

The genius behind the mechanics is the storyteller only scores points if at least one, but not all, of the other players picks correctly. This forces the storyteller to avoid being too vague or too specific.

The card images themselves are wonderfully evocative and unique, prompting creativity in choosing "stories" for them. The fact that the game boils down to a simple premise of "describe the picture on the card" makes it perfect to play with kids. I haven't played with a particularly small group yet, but it has played extremely well for us with groups ranging from 5 to 9 and players ages 7 to 45.

Odyssey is a stand alone addition, but is fully compatible with the first two releases (and the box is even designed to hold the cards from the previous sets).

Games that encourage creativity and enhance language skills while being fun for any person big or small that chooses to join in are rare. This is a great addition to anyone's game closet.

Highly recommended.

This game is fantastic! I don't have the patience to sit through long, complicated explanations of rules with most games, but this one is simple and the images on the cards are fascinating and beautiful. I've dragged friends into playing who then want to buy the game after ten minutes--this is how I ended up purchasing it, by the way; via someone cajoling me to play, and I loved it so much that I got it and now the entire household loves it. It's appropriate for many, many ages, large or small groups, and is fascinating to play with people you know well, because your guesses are affected by what you intuit about the other players' mental process. It's not educational per se, but for kids, it's a great way to gauge interpersonal reactions, state of mind of other people, analogies, metaphors, what art means to different people, and the game also requires every player to shift the way they think - which is a great equalizer for pretty much any group of people. It's not possible for a player to be "wrong" and embarassed, and a child's age is not a handicap even when playing with adults (which we discovered when playing the game with four adults and my 14-year-old son). Come to think of it, this is a game that a group of people of extremely mixed mental ability could play quite happily.

Rules that aren't official but useful: no inside jokes (unless everyone playing knows the joke), no references so obscure only a few people present will "get it," and no jargon.

Get it. Play it. Have fun.
