Codenames - a fun social word family game

24.95 29.50

All you have is a one word clue to help find the secret identities of your teams agents. Codenames is a social word game that is easy to play and a lot of fun for all ages.

An award winning family board game that we recommend.

Two rival spymasters know the secret identities of 25 agents. Their teammates know the agents only by their codenames. The 2 teams compete to see who can make contact with all of their agents first. Spymasters give one-word clues that can point to multiple words on the table. Their teammates try to guess words of their colour while avoiding those that belong to the opposing team. And everyone wants to avoid the assassin. The game works very well with 4 players or you can add more players if you prefer lively discussion. There is also a cooperative variant where a single team tries to achieve the highest score they can by playing against the game itself.

Due to it's compact size Codenames is one of the best family games for travel or camping.
