Win or Lose, it’s fun to figure out the clues. The two rival spymasters know the secret identities of 25 agents. Their teammates know the agents only by their Codenames.
Codenames is a social word game with a simple premise and challenging game play. The 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 board. The teammates of the spymasters try to guess words of the right color while avoiding those that belong to the opposing team. Everyone in the game wants to avoid the assassin.
The game works very well with 4 players if you prefer to guess without help. 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.
The clues you use and how you use can decide your fate in the game!
