You already know the fun party game Codenames.

Let us remind you that you are divided into two teams and the leader of each team, the spymaster knows the secret identities of 25 agents. The spymaster’s teammates, however, know only the codenames of these agents. There are some words on the table and the spymaster gives his teammates one-word clues, in order to help them find the secret identities of the agents, while trying to avoid the assassin.

Now Codenames: Pictures is here, in which each agent is represented, not by a word, but by a picture which includes many clues that can help the players.

Codenames: Pictures, also, seems to be a fun game during which you will definitely have a great time, however it might not be as interesting as the original Codenames and it might also remind us a little of other picture games, such as Dixit and Mysterium. Nevertheless, we will play Codenames: Pictures as well and try to find the secret identities of the agents in this new way!

I got to know the world of board games along with NinjaBoy several years ago. So we both ended up getting hooked on playing, until we finally decided to create this website, so that boardgamers from all over the world will gather around. I am a translator and a copywriter. Making this site, as well as working on it every single day, has been a great experience and we are happy to know that it has brought together people who share the same love for board games. So, choose your character, shuffle your deck and roll your dice, for there are some board game stories here to explore!

Codenames: Pictures – Οι Λέξεις Γίνονται Εικόνες…

Ήδη γνωρίζουμε το πολύ διασκεδαστικό παιχνίδι παρέας Codenames.

Αν θυμάστε, είστε χωρισμένοι σε δυο ομάδες κι ο αρχηγός κάθε ομάδας, ο κατάσκοπος, γνωρίζει τις μυστικές ταυτότητες 25 πρακτόρων. Οι συμπαίκτες του κατασκόπου, όμως, γνωρίζουν μόνο τα codenames αυτών των πρακτόρων. Από τις λέξεις που βρίσκονται απλωμένες στο τραπέζι, ο κάθε αρχηγός δίνει στην ομάδα του ένα clue με μία λέξη, ώστε να τους βοηθήσει να βρουν τις μυστικές ταυτότητες των πρακτόρων τους, προσέχοντας να μην πέσουν στο δολοφόνο που κυκλοφορεί κάπου εκεί.

Τώρα έρχεται το Codenames: Pictures, στο οποίο ο κάθε πράκτορας δεν αντιπροσωπεύεται από μια λέξη, αλλά από μία εικόνα η οποία περιλαμβάνει αρκετά στοιχεία που μπορούν να βοηθήσουν τους παίκτες.

Το Codenames: Pictures φαίνεται πως και πάλι είναι ένα παιχνίδι με το οποίο θα διασκεδάσετε και θα γελάσετε, ωστόσο ίσως να μην έχει το ίδιο ενδιαφέρον που έχει το παιχνίδι με τις λέξεις και ίσως να μας θυμίζει λίγο άλλα παιχνίδια με εικόνες, όπως το Dixit και το Mysterium. Παρ’ όλα αυτά, όμως, εμείς θα παίξουμε και με τις εικόνες και θα εντοπίσουμε και μ’αυτόν τον τρόπο τις μυστικές ταυτότητες των πρακτόρων!
