I loved this game! I had never played any version of Codenames before but the group of people I played with all were familiar with the original. It was easy to learn and the setup was pretty basic. I had this preconception that you had to be really knowledgeable in Marvel lore to play but my fears were unfounded--you just have to be good at giving and getting visual clues! It's great for adults as well as kids and the engagement level is high! There are also different ways to play (pictures or words) and I'm excited to try out the 2-player mode for when it's just my and hubby around the house! The art is good and the box was thin compact. This is definitely an addition to my social icebreaker games when I host future game nights!

My family really loves the Codenames series of games. ( We also own the original and Disney versions as well). Marvel Codenames is no exception! Setup is easy and this game is simple enough for kids (my 4 year old even plays) to understand yet entertaining enough to keep adults interested. Overall, we really enjoyed this at game night and I know it will get played a bunch!

I have played the original codenames with friends and was looking forward to trying out this Marvel version. Even though we game regularly, most of us (8 played, ranging in age from 20's to 50's), were not familiar with many of the characters/images which annoyed those who were. There is definitely a large range of Marvel characters included, not just those from recent movies. We also had a challenge seeing what was pictured on the small size cards. It would probably be better with larger cards or less detailed pictures. Next we tried the word side thinking it would be easier. Some of the words we were unfamiliar with due to not having an extensive Marvel knowledge. We also noticed, that although the cards are larger than the original codenames, the upside-down words were too small for anyone to read without holding it close, which pretty much defeats the benefit of it being there. Overall the game was enjoyable, but probably best played with a group of knowledgable Marvel fans or no knowledge so everyone is on the same playing field.

It's all fun and games until the villain team wins! Great game to play for family game night. Our 6 year old was able to play with our help and actually did better than I was doing. Game was easy to play and everyone had a blast during our game night.

Overall, this is a really fun game. You team up, and it's the good guys against the villains. The instruction pamphlet is large but the game is actually pretty simple, so do not let that deter you. We played with friends, food and drink. You can have adults rotate out the teams, if people want to get up and gather, and take turns watching the kids. That's pretty much we just did during game night. The only negative for me, is that some of the cards are dark, but detailed. So, if you have vision issues, it can make it hard. But, if you have a good team mate, they can help you out. There are many different board versions, so you can continue to play it with the same group of people many times. I received this to sample through Tryazon and USAopoly, but all opinions are my own and honest.

Used this as a team building exercise, we have a fantastic time. This would be great for all ages. It makes you think and is fun to play in teams.

Playing this Marvel-themed version of Codenames got everyone interested in exploring the other available versions such as Disney and the original. Watching the instructional video online made it a much more user friendly experience as we were all able to play after only a few minutes of direction. We were a bit concerned that the game would be too difficult since the adults didn’t have extensive Marvel knowledge but we discovered something helpful. The game allows you to play either with a photo side of the card or a word clue side. The photo side works well for those who are very familiar with Marvel but the word side allows just about anyone to give and get good clues by simply using reasoning.
