Codenames Goes Big, XXL Big

Codenames is already big among gamers, and can even can even be said to be big with a growing number of people that wouldn’t use that word to describe themselves. Well, it’s about to get even bigger.

Codenames XXL is set for release in Q2 of 2018. The primary feature of this version is the larger cards, designed for bigger groups to play more easily, as players won’t be leaning over each other and squinting nearly as much. The original’s cards were 2.6″ x 1.7″, but the new version goes big, not home, with 4.7″ x 2.8″ cards, almost 3 times larger (in terms of card area).
