This week we review fancy French boardgame Dixit – a game that
absolutely anyone you know can play and enjoy. We play a round and
give you the benefit of our thoughts... or the demerit of our
thoughts, depending on how you feel about it. Either way we talk
about Dixit, which is appropriate since talking is the point of the
game; Dixit being Latin for “he/she said”.

important topics of discussion
- 2.07: I think Graham was about to make quite a good joke about
the then upcoming elections there. Unfortunately we all missed
- 5.08: I'm quite, quite wrong here, but we'll catch that in
editing. Wait, I am editing! Oh no, I didn't catch it!
- 6.35: I had re-read the rules at this stage, and realised my
- 7.20: This is where our play-through starts – if you're only
interested in the review, skip ahead to 23.56. Also, I'm editing

checking out her
site. Though be warned, when I checked that link, the top image
contained nudity. Tasteful nudity, but NSFW nevertheless.
- 35.08: It's Rob Florence! He's amazing. Here's a link to his
tragically short-lived boardgame review show Downtime Town. Amongst
the other things he does are being a comedian on TV and writing
boardgames reviews for Rock, Paper, Shotgun. Busy man, Rob.
