Dixit is a game that resembles a psychiatric test more than anything else. I still hold this opinion. And the worst thing is that many expansions have left!

Maybe… just maybe Galaxy Trucker will be a gift for myself.

I love when new explorable favorites are added, and these games did not disappoint! I found Galaxy Trucker to be unexpectedly appealing, but it was Dixit that stole my heart! Unfortunately, I don’t get many opportunities to bust out a 3-6 player game. For me, if a game doesn’t support 1-2 players, it collects dust on my shelf.

You will like Galaxy Trucker.
I often see it played at the boardgame meetup groups.

I dunno … just know it has to have a very special group to play Dixit.

In other words, it is not a very good game.

I have been eyeing Galaxy Trucker for awhile now. It’s just that price tag that is holding me back.

Dixit looks like a ton of fun to play, but I see the point made about playing with the right group. Most of my friends are “over” Apples to Apples, and this just might fill that gap in a new (better) way.

Dixit found a game almost like a test board used by psychologists, was not one of the best games I played in my life, but I could label as some of the worst I’ve ever played.

As for the other game, Galaxy Trucker, but this did not play by the company (Rio Grande Games) is a game to be considered quite as great board games were made by this company, such as Dominion, Antike, Race for the Galaxy, Stone Age, St. Petersburg and others.

Overall, a good exploration.

Galaxy trucker drives some of my friends crazy due to the timing/rush aspect. I like them both!

I have played both of these games many times. Galaxy Trucker is tons of fun. I do want my own copy soon. I guess Dixit is fun, I just have trouble describing a picture, but we have fun playing it. The more people playing, the better.

I agree, Remy. I’m not sure either of these two games would make my buy list, given a limited budget, but they both sound fun and would hope my friends pick them up. (Hint, Hint)
