Does Decrypto crack the code on party games or is something lost in transmission?

So, who played from home and managed to crack the code on my keyword?

I was intrigued by this but found the extra level of foofery just wasn't worth it. I'd rather just play Codenames.

Good review! I'll definitely take it over Codenames, but I find Codenames more slow and stressful than fun so that's not a huge statement on its own. Glad this has some pace to it.

For the record, I'm not a fan of Codenames, I own a copy but we rarely, if ever, pull it out. This is much quicker paced in my experience since you aren't looking for one word to apply to multiple clues. Not that you can't spend way too much time coming up with what you consider a "perfect" clue for one word. If someone is prone to AP, you pretty much have to pull out the sandtimer. It's too bad that it is usually instantly compared to Codenames, because the differences are key to the enjoyment in my experience.

I still wonder how my clues faired for those reading it, which says something about the actual game.

I got it when you were waffling about "Nirvana", but I wasn't really trying very hard before that.

I liked the play-along style, that was a good twist in a review.

My 15 year old son got it at Kardasin Bungholes. Not sure if that is a proud dad moment or not.
