Two rival spymasters know the secret identities of 25 agents. Their teammates know the agents only by their Codenames.
In Codenames, two 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 board. Their teammates try to guess words of the right colour while avoiding those that belong to the opposing team. And everyone wants to avoid the assassin.
Designed by acclaimed board game architect Vlaada Chvatil, Codenames is the latest addition to the Czech Games Editions catalogue.
Codenames is a game for 2-8 players with an average game time of 15-20 minutes.
