Codenames: Duet is now online!


How does it differ from regular Codenames?

Codenames: Duet is a bit more of a demanding and cooperative challenge for two players or for teams that enjoy switching between the spymaster and operative roles each turn. In short, in this game:

  1. You and your partner have to contact all 15 agents while avoiding a squad of enemy assassins.
  2. You know the agents that your partner can contact safely.
  3. Your partner knows the agents you can contact safely.
  4. By giving each other one-word clues that can point to multiple words on the board, you try to find all the agents before your turns run out!

Jason Levine from Dice Tower has this to say about the Codenames: Duet game: You get a phenomenal two-player game, and I'm giving it an awesomeness rating of 9! I love this. If you like Codenames and you can't always find four people, you will absolutely love this.
