#50: Codenames (Mark's Top 50 - 2020)

  • rank: 65
  • rating: 7.67
Print Status
  • in print (with lots of different versions)
Why It's On The List
  • Codenames is an extraordinarily clever word game - it's Password on steroids - that works with a wide variety of groups, ages, and gaming backgrounds. Even people who don't like word games like Codenames.
Tips & Tricks:
    • I think the game is best with 4-6 players... though it will work with larger crowds.
    • Pay close attention to the Assassin word - a perfectly good clue could lead your team to end the round prematurely! (I speak from experience.)
    • For two players, the cooperative version (Codenames Duet) is also excellent.

    I actually prefer Codenames: Pictures (perhaps because I was introduced to that first).
