hello everyone

i wanted to buy a dixit game but there is so many selection out there.
so considering prices on amazon and the art and the added value and some other factors, please advice me which one should i get.

i am thinking of getting a base game + 1 expansion (or tow if there is a good deal).

thank you so much..

Vincent

To be honest, i really don't think it matters. You need a base game (odysee is also a base game) and yes, after some plays you will need an expansion.

But even though the expansion all have a 'theme', they all look the same. Don't get me wrong, i have a lot of them - i just mean to say that any expansion is good. They all are from a great quality.

I have Dixit: Odyssey(the out of print 12player-scoreboard edition), Daydreams and Memories.

I like Memories the most due to the vibrant colors used and also the characters in the cards.

In Memories, I can find more references to fairy tales/animations/stories as compared to the other 2.
Also, A friend gave "Hayao Miyazaki" as a clue and I realised that there are quite a number of cards which gave that similar feeling to his artworks. Hayao Miyazaki is the creator of "My Neighbor Totoro".

In Odyssey, most of the cards are either showing characters going towards a destination or the destination itself.

In Daydreams, the colors used are dull and gloomy, I'm still okay with it as it provide a different feel from what we're usually looking at.

2. Memories
3. Journey

Artwise, I like Memories and Revelations the best, but I would choose the one that suits your taste the most
