My Dixit Board

Dixit is one of my family’s favorite tabletop games – especially when the crew for a Legendary session is unavailable ๐Ÿ˜‰

Unfortunately, we left our old Dixit board at home (a pretty heavy thing it became with all the cards!). Faced with an unequivocally expressed need to play Dixit we decided to buy only those extensions we weren’t familiar with yet – and came short of the board.

And so I painted one ๐Ÿ™‚

Lego minifigures are such a great idea for the game pieces that I believe we’ll be using them in all games to come ;). Guess which one I’m playing? ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Dixit is a game where you have a bunch of cards, each with a different picture on it, and everyone draws 6 cards that cannot be shown to other players. Once it’s your turn as a narrator you make free associations with a picture on your card – a book, a movie, a quote, a bit of poem, whatever, and say it aloud. Other players pick one of their own cards that they deem the closest image of what you said. Then the chosen cards are shuffled and spread on the table so that everyone sees them, and then vote on them, not knowing which card belongs to whom. Your goal as a narrator is to have some players, but not all, vote for your card – in other words, your association must be understandable for others, but not overly simple. You get points (the numbers on the board) for the guesses of others, and if you’re not a narrator and your card gets voted for, you get points as well.
      Oof, I hope it’s clear-ish ๐Ÿ˜€

        • ๐Ÿ™‚ Never played this one ๐Ÿ˜‰ However, after seeing it on the Web just now, I’d venture there might be this difference: Dixit has wonderful dreamlike illustrations and no two are usually similar – so there’s a lot of imagination involved, and a lot of fantasy themes to be explored.

    • Thank you! ๐Ÿ˜€ LEGO is really a hit – especially with the amount of figures we have available ๐Ÿ˜‰ Cards are standard, but as the markers we use regular playing cards: ace, king, queen and jack ๐Ÿ˜‰ We thought also of using dice, but then we don’t have enough dice for everyone ๐Ÿ˜‰
