What is Codenames About

Players split into 2 teams, with each team assigning a Spymaster
There are 25 codenames (words) on the table
The Spymasters of each team know the identity of the agents hiding behind the codenames
Spymasters must guide each team to guess the codenames of their team’s agents by providing a clue to them
Teams use the clue to guess the right codenames related to their team’s agents
Be careful, choose the Assasin agent and you lose
The winning team is the team that uncovers the identities of all its agents
