DIXIT BOARD GAME GUIDE

Dixit board game is an incredibly popular party game that masterfully uses a version of the submit and judge mechanic you would see in Cards Against Humanity or Apples to Apples. It is a genius take on it, using visual storytelling and a group judging system that is not about finding the best, but finding the truth.

In this card game built for a larger group, take turns having someone say a word or phrase and secretly submits an image card from their hand to represent it. Other players also secretly submit a card to go with, then everyone votes on which card they think was created by the storyteller. Point scoring is all over the place but all you need to know if as the storyteller you want to be close but not dead on, if everyone or no one votes for you, you get no points.
