Thomas brought some Dixit cards to a cafe here the other day, but they ended up being only two by the table. Is it possible to play Dixit with only two persons? How can it be done?
Thomas didn’t even have a working smartphone nearby, so he asked himself… how can I play Dixit with only two persons? Is there a working method or way to play the game that will work with only two persons? He came up with an idea, and he was actually quite satisfied with the result.
How to play Dixit when you are only two persons?
The solution is to hand out 5 or 6 to both players. The first player looks at all his cards and finds one for which he finds a describing word. He then selects two or three other cards that he adds to the selected one and places them on the table.
The other player now has to pick the card the first player described with the first word he said!
There is no good way to decide who is the winner in this game, because you can easily trick the other by selecting stupid words… but if the goal is to have fun with a kid or someone you love and you do not really count the points, only play to have fun, this can actually work quite well!
Have you ever tried to play Dixit with only two persons? How did you play? I would love to hear your thoughts!
