Each turn in Dixit, one player is the storyteller, chooses one of the six cards in their hand, then makes up a sentence based on that card's image and says it out loud without showing the card to the other players. Each other player then selects the card in their hand that best matches the sentence and gives the selected card to the storyteller, without showing it to anyone else.
The storyteller shuffles their card with all of the received cards, then reveals all of these cards. Each player other than the storyteller then secretly guesses which card belongs to the storyteller. If nobody or everybody guesses the correct card, the storyteller scores 0 points, and each other player scores 2 points. Otherwise, the storyteller and whoever found the correct answer score 3 points. Additionally, the non-storyteller players score 1 point for every vote received by their card.
The game ends when the deck is empty or if a player has scored at least 30 points. In either case, the player with the most points wins.
The Dixit base game and each expansion contains 84 cards, and the cards can be mixed together as desired.AWARDS & HONORS 2011/Fall Parents' Choice Approved Award Winner 2011 Ludoteca Ideale Official Selection Winner 2011 Japan Boardgame Prize Voters' Selection Nominee 2011 Guldbrikken Best Family Game Nominee 2010 Vuoden Peli Family Game of the Year Winner 2010 Vuoden Peli Family Game of the Year Nominee 2010 Spiel des Jahres Winner 2010 Spiel des Jahres Nominee 2010 Spiel der Spiele Hit für Familien Recommended 2010 Nederlandse Spellenprijs Nominee 2010 Lucca Games Best Family Game 2010 Hungarian Board Game Award Winner 2010 Hra roku Winner 2010 Hra roku Nominee 2010 Gra Roku Game of the Year Nominee 2010 Games Magazine Best New Party Game Winner 2010 Hungarian Board Game Award Nominee 2009 Tric Trac Nominee 2009 Tric Trac de Bronze 2009 Lys Grand Public Winner 2009 Lys Grand Public Finalist 2009 Juego del Año Winner 2009 Juego del Año Finalist 2009 Golden Geek Most Innovative Board Game Nominee 2009 Golden Geek Best Party Board Game Nominee 2009 Golden Geek Best Children's Board Game Nominee 2009 Golden Geek Best Board Game Artwork/Presentation Nominee 2009 As d'Or - Jeu de l'Année Winner 2009 As d'Or - Jeu de l'Année Nominee
