Amazon has a board game that even your teens will love!
Use one word clues (kind of like Password) to get your teammates to figure out where your team’s spy cards are, but be careful because if you make it too obvious, you’ll be tipping off the other team to your spy’s locations as well! And you can’t be too vague or you might make your teammate uncover the assassin! This is a family or party game that requires some strategy, but only takes minutes to teach, and is super fun. I always keep one of these games on hand in the gift closet because it’s a no-fail gift. Everyone loves it!
Here’s a review that might help you decide…
Codenames really is genius in it’s simplicity. It’s a fantastic party game because it can be taught in under 5 minutes and provides a ton of fun. It has definitely been a hit in my gaming group and with my family over the holidays.
Two players are chose as the ones giving the rest of their team clues while the rest desperately try to make sense of what they are talking about. A 5×5 grid of word cards is laid out and then using a key card that shows what words are for each team and which ones are bystanders or an assassin, the clue givers take turns saying a clue word and a number which indicates how many of their team words are related to the clue. The team guesses and the clue giver places a token on their guesses corresponding to the red team, blue team, bystander, or assassin. The first team to cover all their words wins, though guessing the assassin automatically makes you lose.
I cannot recommend it enough!
