Dixit is a card game created by Jean-Louis Roubira, and published by Libellud. In 2010, it won the Spiel des Jahres award. Its title is Latin for "she/he said", a frequent sentence beginning in old narrations.

Gameplay[edit]

Each player starts the game with 6 random cards. Players then take turns being the storyteller. The player whose turn it is to be storyteller looks at the 6 images in his hand. From one of these, he makes up a sentence or phrase and says it out loud (without showing the card to the other players).

The other players then select among their 6 images the one that best matches the sentence made up by the storyteller.

Then, each of them gives their selected card to the storyteller, without showing it to the others. The storyteller shuffles his chosen card with all the cards he received from the other players. All pictures are then shown face up, randomly, and every player has to bet upon what picture was the storyteller's.

material (selection)

If nobody or everybody finds the correct picture, the storyteller scores 0, and each of the other players scores 2. Otherwise the storyteller and all players who found the correct answer score 3. Players other than the storyteller score 1 point for each vote their own pictures receive.

The game ends when the card deck is empty. The player with the highest point total wins the game.

An iOS app for Dixit was released in 2011.[1]

Expansions[edit]

In total there are 427 published cards. Every deck has 84 cards, plus the 7 promotional cards.
