Sometimes, uncomplicated is better, and in the case of Codenames, this is certainly true. A game to be played with friends or family, it helps to have team mates who are on the same wavelength. The premise is deceptively simple: uncover your agents in the field by deciphering the clues given by your code master before your rival team uncovers theirs. But watch out for the assassin!
Games are quick (5-15 minutes) and highly repayable. The perfect addition to your collection of party games.
This is an awesome game to play with family and friends. What I like about it is that you can involve as many people as you want as the game does not limit you to a maximum number of players. I really appreciated how well the cards are made and how the box comes with zip-lock bags to store the cards afterwards. Highly recommend this game for anyone who is big on board games.
Codenames is a great game for nearly any number of player - Split into two teams you compete to find the specific words that one player provides hints for. A great word association game that has given me and my friends many hours of play time.
Our children are 10 & 8, and we are finding that they easily understand the premise of the game. There are very few words that we need to exclude due to their age. I think this is a fun game for all ages.
