This is our descriptions of Dixit Cards. Dixit is the incredibly popular, and quite frankly brilliant, party game that uses the submit and judge mechanic in a way you have never seen done before. It relies on your storytelling ability and ability to read the other players in the game.

To play Dixit, players take turns saying a word, phrase or story and secretly submit a card from their hand that matches it. Other players then also secretly submit one of their cards that they think best matches. Then everyone votes on what they think belongs to the clue giver. Scoring is all over but the key is to give a clue that is close but not dead on so it isn’t everyone or no one.

Dixit has a very unique style. It is very ethereal and whimsical with an deep illustration base. Cards are hopeful but kind of spooky at the same time. These cards all say thousands of things but we thought we would take the time to express what we see. These are our descriptions of Dixit cards. The descriptions go in order of the reference image from left to right, top to bottom.
