    Codenames is a popular word-based party game designed by Vlaada Chvátil and published in 2015. The game centers around two teams, each led by a "spymaster" who knows the secret identities of 25 agents (represented by words on the table). Teams compete to make contact with all of their agents first, based on their spymasters' one-word clues that can point to multiple words on the board.

    The challenge lies in the spymasters' clues, which must be cleverly crafted to guide their team to the right words while avoiding those that belong to the opposing team, innocent bystanders, or the game-ending assassin. The clue can only be one word, but it can hint at multiple words that the team needs to guess.

    Codenames is celebrated for its simplicity, depth, and social interaction, making it an excellent game for parties, family gatherings, or casual get-togethers. It encourages players to think creatively and strategically, offering a mix of tension and laughter as teams try to decipher their spymasters' cryptic clues.

    The game's success has led to the creation of several variants and spin-offs, including Codenames: Pictures, Codenames: Duet, and themed versions like Codenames: Harry Potter, broadening its appeal to a wide range of players and interests. With its engaging gameplay and the social dynamics it fosters, Codenames has become a modern classic in the board game world.
