From the publisher's website:
Illustrated game of creative guesswork, where your imagination unlocks the tale! Dixit is a ground-breaking game, offering delightful and thought-provoking entertainment for all your friends and family. One player is the storyteller for the turn. He looks at the 6 images in his hand. From one of these, he makes up a sentence and says it out loud (without showing the card to the other players). The other players select amongst their 6 images the one that best matches the sentence made up by the storyteller. The storyteller shuffles his card with all the received cards. He then randomly places them face up on the table. The card on the left will be number 1, the one next to it will be number 2, and so on… The goal of the other players is to find which image is from the storyteller amongst the displayed ones. Each player secretly votes for the card that he believes belongs to the storyteller (who doesn’t vote). Each player draws a new card to bring their hand up to 6 once more. The storyteller for the new turn is the player to the left of the current one (and we keep going clockwise for the following turns).
