Codenames Board Game Review

Two teams assign a spymaster. The spymasters know the secret identities of 25 agents. The spymaster’s teammates know the agents only by their CODENAMES.

In Codenames, two teams attempt to see who can make contact with all of their agents first. Spymasters provide one-word clues that can link to multiple words on the board. Their teammates attempt to guess the right words and avoid those belonging to the opposing team. Be careful, one of the hidden identities is an Assasin!
