Codenames is a highly rated quick & light 2 to 8 player game for ages 14 and above that takes around 15 minutes to play. It is also ranked as one of the best party games on Board Game Geek.
Two rival spymasters know the secret identities of 25 agents. Their teammates know the agents only by their CODENAMES.
In Codenames, two teams compete to see who can make contact with all of their agents first. Spymasters give one-word clues that can point to multiple words on the board. Their teammates try to guess words of the right color while avoiding those that belong to the opposing team. And everyone wants to avoid the assassin.
Codenames: Win or lose, it’s fun to figure out the clues.

Easy to understand gameplay.
Great concept and lots of fun!
Not sure if larger groups will enjoy.
Would have liked a scorecard/ scoreboard mechanism to be included along with the other cards as it is difficult to count how many words have been guessed each time.
Damn Interesting game.
Hours to play without bored.
Must have in Board game collection.
Great party game for large group.
