It’s good to crack the code and let loose on the weekend. We are never too old to have fun so enjoy this game if you haven’t already.

Happy FRI-Yay Everybody!

It’s Friday Fun Day and one of the most fun things we do with our family online is play Codenames.

On 3 differnt time zones we divide into teams
hoping to be the first to crack the code (pick the right words from hints) and win the game.

It’s a blast as we cackle and laugh and to be fair yell and shout. You can mute and unmute and should because you need your poker face.

Lots of words on the screen Red and Blue no less, as it it isn’t enough we have to hear from the 2 sides every day on the news. But this one is fun.

GitHub - jbowens/codenames: Play codenames online

One player from each team is selected to be the spymaster is in charge of giving the hints.

They give one word clues that point to multiple words on the board. The other players on the team attempt to guess their teams words while avoiding the words of the other team.

I highly reccommend setting a timer which we haven’t done yet but it would speed the game up a lot.

Our East Coast kids don’t get to bed until 4:00 a.m. sometimes when we play which shows you how much we love it!

You can play with 4-8 players

So Guys, Game on tonight?

Hope this works…..

Have fun and let me know if you like it or have played.

Enjoy your weekend until we meet again next week.

In Love and laughter,

      1. I want to let you know I tried the game with my family. It was chaos at first but we managed to pull through. We’re adding it to our game nights on weekends. Hopefully the chaos won’t be as it was with our first try😊😅

  1. Looks complicated if you are not a technical adept individual. I am sure it must be fun though . I may check it out ha ha

  3. What a sweet way to keep your family connected. It looks like you have three beautiful daughters who look like their mother and one a dancer perhaps.

Have an amazing day and thank you for sharing this cleaver and fun way of staying connected to loved once. Hugs 🤗 and love to you and your beautiful family. 💕Joni
