Two rival spymasters know the agent in each location. They deliver coded messages telling their field operatives where to go for clandestine meetings. . Operatives must be clever. A decoding mistake could lead to an unpleasant encounter with an enemy agent – or worse, with the assassin! Both teams race to contact all their agents, but only one team can win.
Codenames Pictures is derived from the original Codenames game. Instead of pictures coding for secret meeting locations, the original game uses words – the agents' secret codenames. There are some slight differences, but basically, the rules are the same: Two spymasters take turns giving clues consisting of one word and one number. Their teammates try to touch the correct codename cards. Words and pictures use slightly different modes of thinking.
The game works very well with 4 players if you prefer to guess without help. Or you can add more players if you prefer lively discussion.
