Code names: Code names is a social word game with a straightforward concept and complex game play. 25 agents have secret identities that two rival spymasters are aware of. Their codenames are all they know about them.

The goal of the game is for players to contact with all of their agents first. Spymasters provide one-word hints that might point to many different words on the table. Their teammates attempt to guess words of their own color while avoiding those belonging to the opponents. And everyone wants to avoid the assassin.

This game is best played with 4 players if you want to guess without help. However, you can add more players if you prefer a more lively discussion. There is also a cooperative variant where one team tries to achieve the highest score possible by playing against the game itself.
