Dixit is a game of creativity and association. Players are dealt a hand of cards with strange, random but well illustrated cards. The active player ("The story teller") tries to communicate something from the card that they play in the form of a sentence, a poem, a phrase, a sound, a gesture, a dance - anything you can think of to describe your card. The other players then have to play a card from their hand that they feel matches the sentiment of the story teller. These played cards are shuffled and then the players (except the story teller) vote on which they think is the story tellers card. If everyone guesses correctly, then the story teller was too accurate in his description and everybody else scores points. If nobody guessed correctly, then the story teller was too vague and everybody else scores points. If just a few people guess correctly then both the story teller and those who guessed correctly score points (as well as anyone who played a card that also got a vote). It's a wonderfully simple game that even people who aren't very creative can play - because all they have to do is just match a card to what the story teller said. The card illustrations are excellent and can evoke a wide range of emotions/themes/references.
A great party game for nearly any gaming group. I haven't played this game with anyone who didn't instantly fall in love with it.
