Codenames is a social word game with a simple premise and challenging game play. Two rival spymasters know the secret identities of 25 agents while their teammates know the agents only by their codenames. The teams compete to see who can make contact with all of their agents first. Spymasters give one-word clues that can point to multiple words on the table and their teammates try to guess words of their color while avoiding those that belong to the opposing team and the assassin. Win or lose, it's fun to figure out the clues.
Codenames can be played as a team game with 4 players but also includes a 2 and 3 player cooperative rules for playing the game in small groups.
