We SOOO wanted to love this game. We even gave it multiple chances and plays hoping that maybe we were just in the wrong mood when we sat down to play- but it just never- ever- not even for 1 second got interesting or fun.
We are a family of 5 with varying gaming likes and needs. The 2 adults like a variety of games from heavy strategy with lots of set up to fast filler games as well as less "thinking" games as our kids call them. For example we have played at different times in our "gaming life" and enjoyed games like Dominion, Civilization, Castles of Burgundy, Biblios, Apples to Apples, Things, Carcassonne, Ticket 2 Ride, HIve. To give you a sampling. Of our 3 kids we have a 16 year "fine I"ll play with you" type, a 13 year old who wishes she were good at games but just isn't and would be happy playing payday 10 times in a row! and a 10 year old who begs to play the "big kid games" but has the patience and self control of a flea so that doesn't go so well". But even with that crazy mix we have been able to enjoy family game days with a variety of strategy "lite" games and silly games such as Apples to Apples, Zooreka, Zooloretto, Stratego, Ticket Ride, Black Sheep, Castle Panic, Selfie, Things.
All of those games have been successfully enjoyed by all of the different gamers in our family. We were hoping that Dixit would be a nice new addition for our rotation and since we have an artist in the group we thought and the art will be and added bonus.
I guess we were hoping for an apple to apples art version..but boy were we disappointed. The game was slow and dull and painful to finish. And after you had seen the cards once...all you could think about was the word or phrase the you or the previous person had used for the card. WE REALLY wanted to like this game and gave it so many chances but all agreed that it was the bust of the holiday season. I don't recommend it for anyone!
Thank you amazon for accepting our return! We will try a different game!
