Each turn in Dixit, one player is the storyteller, chooses one of the six cards in their hand, then makes up a sentence based on that card's image and says it out loud without showing the card to the other players. Each other player then selects the card in their hand that best matches the sentence and gives the selected card to the storyteller, without showing it to anyone else.
The storyteller shuffles their card with all of the received cards, then reveals all of these cards. Each player other than the storyteller then secretly guesses which card belongs to the storyteller. If nobody or everybody guesses the correct card, the storyteller scores 0 points, and each other player scores 2 points. Otherwise, the storyteller and whoever found the correct answer score 3 points. Additionally, the non-storyteller players score 1 point for every vote received by their card.
The game ends when the deck is empty or if a player has scored at least 30 points. In either case, the player with the most points wins.
Dixit: Disney Edition features 84 cards, with each card representing one of 84 films in the Disney or Pixar catalog from Steamboat Willie to Turning Red.
I have owned Dixit for roughly six years now, have bought several of the expansions and even picked up the 12 player edition from an op shop. When I saw this Disney version was coming out I will admit to being a little excited to see what it would have on offer, though when my twelve year old saw it and requested we buy it, it wasn't very hard for me to say yes to adding it to our collection. With this version you get voting dials instead of tokens, which we all preferred, and the player tokens are disney characters both young and old. My one gripe about this game though, is seeing all the extra promo tokens and cards available and knowing that we probably won't be able to get our hands on our own copies.
Each card features a different Disney or Disney Pixar film, ranging from some of the old classics to the more recent releases (Turning Red and Encanto). I did wonder why they opted to include the sequels to some films and not others, especially when there were plenty more films to take from (though I am aware some may have been done as a special promo like Alice in Wonderland). However, the cards themselves are beautifully illustrated and the kids and I enjoyed looking through every single card and naming the film it comes from (I was pleased to note that there were only four I haven't watched) and there was only one card that we muddled up.
This is perfect for those new to Dixit and already a fan of the game, though I am starting to feel that I need a bigger box to play home to all the expansion I have. Hopefully the promos might be release at a later date without to hefty a price tag.
