Every picture tells a story – but what story will your picture tell?
Dixit is the lovingly illustrated game of creative guesswork, where your imagination unlocks the tale. In this award-winning board game, players will use the beautiful imagery on their cards to bluff their opponents and guess which image matches the story. Guessing right is only half the battle – to really succeed, you’ll have to get your friends to decide that your card tells the story!
From the Manufacturer
The players have hands of oversized cards with various artistic pictures. The active player secretly selects one of his cards and gives a very brief description. The other players secretly select their own cards which match the description. The chosen cards are shuffled and revealed, then players vote on which was chosen by the active player. Each correct answer gives points to the guesser and the active player. Each incorrect answer gives points to the player who submitted the guessed card. However, if all of the guesses are correct -- or none of them are -- then the active player gets no points and all the other players get points. The game ends when the deck is empty. The greatest total wins the game.

Asmodee did a really good job of making the different versions of Dixit as confusing as possible. All versions of Dixit use the same card size and have the same card back so they are all compatible with each other. Here is what I was able to figure to the best of my knowledge:
There are 7 sets: Dixit, Dixit Odyssey, Dixit Quest (Dixit 2), Dixit Journey (Dixit 3), Dixit Origins (Dixit 4), Dixit Daydreams (Dixit 5), and Dixit Memories (Dixit 6).
Dixit Jinx is a totally separate game with square shaped cards.

Standalone game that comes with 84 cards and everything you need to play with up to 6 players. There are several different printings.
The older version, also called Dixit (International Rules Version) , comes with a scoring track built into the box and space to hold the 84 cards. It can be identified with a German Game of the Year icon on the front of the box.
The newer version, Dixit , being printed since 2012, comes with a foldable scoring track that is less cute but more functional than the scoring track in the old/international version and space to hold 336 cards (Dixit's 84 cards plus 3 other sets). It can be identified by the word "Family" on the front of the box.

Dixit Jinx Card Game
US name: Dixit Jinx
Euro name: Dixit Jinx
Artist: Dominique Ehrhard
Dixit Jinx is a standalone game that is totally separate from the other versions of Dixit. It comes with 71 double-sided square cards with simple abstract images, plus 9 selection cards. It's a quicker game, and while there are some similarities in the mechanics with one player picking a card and other players guessing which one based on a clue, it is still quite different.
About Dixit in General:
Dixit is a game about creativity, subtlety, storytelling, and whimsical art. While there technically is a winner in games of Dixit, it shouldn't be approached as a competitive game. Most people tend to either love it or hate it. Gamers focused on strategy, tactics, winning or literal minded people are less likely to enjoy the game than creative people, artists, or those comfortable with metaphors.
We play regular board games with another couple. We enjoyed Apples to Apple and some other games. When we first try this we were capitivated by the art work alone. We had so much fun that after the first couple games I already decided to get the expansion pack.
At first I am concern that since I am not a very creative person I wouldn't be able to come up with good phrases. It turned out not to be a problem at all. It is challenging to come up with a description that isn't too much of a giveaway but not too obscure. And sometimes the game is thrown off when someone else put in an even better card (or no one has any applicable card) so there are always surprises.
I am very glad I took a chance and got this. This is definintely became our new favorite.
The board is basically just a point counter so if you lose it you don't have to panic, all you really need is some paper to keep track of score (if you even want to go that far). Really all you need is the deck to play, but the pieces are cute little bunnies so I always use them.
It's hard to describe the cards. They are all very odd and dream-like (as in a scene that is bizarre enough to be in a dream). They have enough interesting things going on in them that quite often during play someone will stop the game to get a closer look at one of the cards just played.

Everyone starts off with some fantastically drawn cards in their hands. The person who's starts is the Storyteller, who selects one of their cards, and places it face down. They also say a word, sentence or even a sound effect that is associated with that card.
The rest of the players then choose a card from their hand that may also be associated with that word, sentence or sound effect. They then hand their card (hidden from all!) to the Storyteller, who shuffles all these cards, and places them face up, in a row, for all to see.
Everyone knows which card THEY contributed, but they don't know which card is the Storyteller's - the idea is that all the cards that are on display could be a potential candidate.
Points are scored depending on who guess what. If you've played Fibbage (by JackBox) then you will be very familiar with the mechanics of this game.
The more you play, the better everyone will be at describing their images, and leading everyone astray. Also, the more players that are involved, the more enjoyable the game is. Four really is the minimum.
Very enjoyable, very easy to get into, and loads of fun. Recommended.
Innerhalb einer Woche nach Erhalt habe ich dieses Spiel bereits in 3 verschiedenen Runden gespielt und überall kam es gut an und hat Spaß gemacht. Für die, die es noch nicht kennen: Das Prinzip geht darum, dass jeder Mitspieler 6 Bildkarten auf der Hand hat, wobei die Bildkarten ziemlich viel Fantasie und keine/kaum reale Szenen behinhalten (Lob an die Kartengestalter, meiner Meinung nach sind diese sehr schön gestaltet). Reihum werden nun Runden gespielt in der jeweils ein Spieler ein "Thema" (Satz, Aussage, Zitat, Wort) vorgibt und alle anderen Spieler eine möglichst passende Karte von ihrer Hand dazugeben müssen. Nun werden alle Karten verdeckt gemischt und anschließend aufgedeckt. Jeder darf nun die Karten genau anschauen bevor eine geheime Abstimmung (mit Hilfe der kleinen Abstimmungplättchen) getätigt wird, bei der kein Spieler auf seine eigene Karte setzen darf und der Rundenleiter auch "aussetzen" muss. Wer auf die richtige Karte des Aufgabenstellers setzte bekommt Punkte und wer andere mit seiner Karte auf den Holzweg führt bekommt Extrapunkte!
Das einzige (kleine) Manko an dem Spiel ist die Tatsache, dass die Karten nach einer weile recht eintönig werden können, wenn man das Spiel öfter spielt. Man kann sich dabei aber auch durch die zahlreichen Erweiterungen Abhilfe schaffen, wobei dies natürlich wieder einen zusätzlichen finanziellen Aufwand bedeutet.
The way the game works is that you the storyteller tells a story, then every player hands the storyteller a card that best matches that story, then play continues clockwise. A well designed and creative game that is presented beautifully.
The game itself is straightforward, but the scoring system can be a little cumbersome and has required a few re-reads of the scoring instructions.
Each player is dealt a number of cards, the storyteller describes their card using a sentence, noise or a little story, everyone else chooses a card which closely matches the story told, all cards are handed to the storyteller who shuffles, places and then everyone needs to guess which card belonged to the storyteller. What we did find, was that playing together as a family (myself and my two daughters) is that we know eachother incredibly well so we always guessed the right card, which makes it a super straightforward game. When we introduce other people to the game, it’s much more fun since they have really different ideas - but it makes for a more competitive game with other players.
Overall, we do love it and play it regularly. The illustrations are beautiful and often spin off conversations which make gameplay seem a lot longer, but, the family who communicates stay together, right?
