One of the best (serious) party games. It's really a low risk investment. Works for two people but even better with teams.

"Two rival spymasters know the secret identities of 25 agents. Their teammates know the agents only by their CODENAMES.

In Codenames, two teams compete to see who can make contact with all of their agents first. Spymasters give one-word clues that can point to multiple words on the board. Their teammates try to guess words of the right color while avoiding those that belong to the opposing team. And everyone wants to avoid the assassin."

definitely agreed - great teams game or workplace lunch game because it's easy to get without a lot of explanation. the only major downside of this is that the person giving the clues might need time to think about the clue they want to give, which can result in some downside for the team guessing the words. That can be ameliorated with an hourglass, i know, but it's a minor quibble for a very fun, accessible game.

This game works very well for a variety of ages too. My great uncle had a blast with it so I've had players from low twenties to mid seventies all enjoy this game.

Great game. Have played it many times and haven't had a single person dislike it. Some people have disliked being the spymaster but they enjoyed the game itself.

Pictures can be a lot of fun because a lot of clues are open to interpretation. Most people enjoy the word version more in my experience.

Codenames is a good game, but Codenames Pictures is five times better. Since we got Codenames Pictures, we've never once taken the original Codenames out.
