Codenames is a brainstorming game for 2 to 8 players in which, divided into two teams, you play as either a master spy or an agent on a mission. To find out what code name your informants are hiding under, listen carefully to the clues given by the two Spy Masters and be careful not to contact an enemy informant, or worse ... the dreaded assassin! The two Spy Masters know the identity of the 25 Informants on the table, but their Agents only see their Codenames. The teams compete in ingenuity to be the first to make contact with all their Informants. For this, the Spy Masters give one and only one clue word that can designate several Code Names on the table. Their Agents therefore try to guess the Code Names of their color and avoid those of the other team. And above all, everyone wants to avoid the Assassin! The first team that identifies all of its Informers wins the game.
