Great 2 player Codenames implementation
This is a great implementation of the Codenames game for 2 players. In it, you are working as a team to try and guess your clues.

It gives you a bunch more words to use, although some of these appear to be stretching the word pool a bit. These can easily be added to with the Codenames or Pictures pool for more variety.

The game plays nice and quickly as well, so can easily be played a few times in a row. It is quick to teach and set up, which is great for work night games with the family.

The only thing you lose is the party atmosphere from the main game. There isn’t really much conversation and it is played mainly in silence. And like it’s predecessor, sometimes you just get a bad combination of words to link.
