Overall, this $23 expansion is certainly worth picking up if you enjoy Dixit. If you’d like to learn more about the base Dixit game and how it plays, youtube: “Tabletop: Dixit with Wil Wheaton,” or check out my review on Dixit on my home page.
The concept of all the Dixit games are the same, they just have different images. The regular Dixit's images are definitely random. The Odyssey and Journey are more themed around travel and adventure. If you are a fantasy adventure person, I'd recommend Journey because there is Harry potter and Lord of the Rings references galore to be made. As for the regular Dixits (1,2, and 3) they all will be of the same quality of playing so if you have the chance to look at the cards, pick the pack with your favorite artwork. The whole point of the game is to see the creative things people see in each card. You and your niece may not think of the same idea for one card and that is the beauty and re-usability of the game.
Add even more fun to your Dixit game, with the Dixit 6 Memories expansion! Dixit...a surprising, enchanting and evocative game to be enjoyed with friends and family alike. This multi-award winning party game...
Of course, with such a cool game that’s all about the illustrations, chances are we’re going to get some of the other Dixit games to have more creative artwork to play with.
