So, I'm cruising ICV2, a cool pop-culture/game news site, and I find out that Dixit, a game we have in our store, has won the "Spiel des Jahres" by a group of German game critics. Apparently that means Game of the Year. Who knew?

www.icv2.com/articles/...18336.html

Then I take a closer look at the game and find out it has won pl;enty of other awards, including equivalent Game of the Year awards in France, Quebec, Belgium, and Spain. A little more locally, this country's Games Magazine awarded it best party game for 2009.

So what is it?

The BoardGameGeek website has a very excellent description:

"One player is the storyteller for the turn. He looks at the 6 images in his hand. From one of these, he makes up a sentence and says it out loud (without showing the card to the other players).

The other players select amongst their 6 images the one that best matches the sentence made up by the storyteller.

Then, each of them gives their selected card to the storyteller, without showing it to the others. The storyteller shuffles his card with all the received cards. All pictures are shown face up, randomly, and every player has to bet upon what picture was the storyteller's.

If nobody or everybody finds the correct picture, the storyteller scores 0, and each of the other players scores 2. Otherwise the storyteller and whoever found the correct answer scores 3. Players score 1 point for every vote gotten by their own picture.

The game ends when the deck is empty. The greatest total wins the game."


Heh. Sounds like a lot of fun. I may have to try this one out.
