Winner of the 2015 Spiel des Jahres, Codenames is a social board game where two rival spymasters know the identities of 25 secret agents and have to attempt to get their teammates to make contact with all their team’s agents first. 25 cards are randomly placed on the table, each with a different word representing the codenames of the agents. The spymasters take turns giving clues consisting of a single word and a number in an effort to get their teammates to find the correct agents. For instance, the clue “Grass 2” would imply that two of the agent’s codenames relate to the word grass. The first team to locate all of their agents wins. But beware the assassin card. If a team selects the assassin, the other team automatically wins. Great for gamers of all ages and skill levels, you’ll want to buy Codenames if you’re looking for the perfect combination of social gaming and espionage.
