Dixit Journey Review (Asmodee)

What It Is

Dixit Journey is the newest version of Dixit, a game of storytelling through imagination and clues. This new version features a gallery of artistically designed cards that offer simple images for easy individual interpretation, giving younger players the chance to stretch their imaginations and incorporate their best vocabulary skills.

To start, each player receives six cards. One player is the storyteller for the round. The storyteller gives a clue (word, phrase, song, etc.) for one of his cards and says it out loud, without showing the card to the other players. All the other players choose one of their own cards that best fits the storyteller's clue to his card. The storyteller then shuffles the chosen cards together, including his own, and reveals them all at once. All the players secretly try to guess which card belongs to the storyteller. When all the votes are in, scoring begins. If all players find the storyteller's card, the storyteller receives no points and the other players each receive two points. If no players find the right card, the storyteller receives no points and the other players each receive two. Bonus points can be scored by the other players if their cards were voted for. If at least one player but not all players have found the storyteller's card, the storyteller receives three points and the players who have found the card also receive three points, plus bonus points if anyone voted for their cards. The players move their icons on the scoring track based on the number of points they earn each round. Play resumes clockwise and the game ends when the last card has been drawn. The player with the most points wins.

Dixit Journey comes with 84 image cards, 18 voting tokens, 50 scoring pads, and a rulebook. The game is for three to six players.
