Decrypto celebrates its 5th anniversary!

Exclusive box design and all new words!

The #1 party game on BoardGameGeek is celebrating the fifth year since its initial release in 2018! Addictive as ever, it now comes in an attractive black box with gold foil accents. In addition to its new look, there are 440 brand new words that extend the replayability of this classic word association game.

This exclusive edition of Decrypto will only be available this year. Demos, events, and stock will be available at Gen Con, and released at local game stores nationwide on August 2, 2023.

Also available are the Original Edition and XL Edition!

Decrypto pits two teams against each other. The general idea of the game is to transmit information to your own team without the other team understanding. To win you have to walk a fine line: The instructions you give need to be clear enough for your teammates to understand, while at the same time obscure enough to baffle your adversaries!

Each round, both teams appoint one of their members to be the Encryptor, whose job is to transmit a secret 3-digit code to their teammates without the opposing team intercepting the code. If you succeed in guessing the opposing team’s code, you win an Interception Token. If you manage to get 2 Interception Tokens, your team wins!
