This game uses images from the real DIXIT game.

If you've ever played the DIXIT card game you probably thought it would make a good ESL game. It's basically a fancy picture guessing game giving hints. But the illustrations are really whimsical and interesting.

I've modified it for a classroom game. A team has 4 images to choose from, they choose one and give hints about it. The other teams try to guess which picture they chose and there is a point system accordingly.

The first slide of the ppt explains everything.

This looks interesting but i don't understand how the number cards play into it.

This looks great! I actually used the real Dixit game with my afterschool students the other day and they loved it! Thanks for this. I will put it into my supply of activities to use with my other school where I do fun lessons once a week. This will go down well.

Toddingumi, the number cards at the end are for voting... if you want to have each team vote quietly for which card they think the 'host' team is talking about, you can give each team 4 cards, and tell them that they must hold up the number they think is correct, rather than having each team copy each other. If you play the real dixit game you have to vote on which card you think is the storytellers, these cards are along the same lines, each team votes for which card they think the 'host' team is talking about in order to get points.
"It's better to have tried and failed, than never to have tried at all!"
Teach this to your students... they'll thank you for it later!

I can't even imagine how much time went into making this. It's so beautiful. Used it today for an after school class and it went swimmingly. My co-teacher and I thank you. ^^

Great job elacosse. My students found this very interesting. Overall great idea and great execution on the ppt. It's simple enough to be played by low and high levels yet ut remains challenging for all levels, very cool.

Thanks for the positive feedback ; )

I do find the game is a little slow for big classes as each group need time to pick an image and think of hint words.

If any users have modified the play of this game I'd be interested to know what you did.

I doubt this will help you but I just gave each team a minute using my phone as a timer.

Looking forward to trying this out today. You've done good work here. Post school trip day this is a perfect Friday class to strengthen adjectives and such.

My 5th graders loved this game, and even got students who never speak to play. Works best with partner teams. Only problem is low-level students will try to use colors ...only. Some students will also be too tricking naming things that are in other cards, so they always lose a point. :rolleyes:

You amazing person! This is so perfect for my advanced high school students! I've been wanting to get the real game for them to play but this will save me quite a bit of money. Thank you so much for uploading it! What a gorgeous ppt!

I love dixit and I am definetly saving this game. But I have the problem with the scoring page. It resets every time I go back to it. Does anyone know how to fix this?

I'm bumping this because I LOVE DIXIT and this is probably the most beautifully done PPT I've ever seen!

I was skeptical about how DIXIT would work without the game but it looks really simple to play.

Well done :) I'm in awe of this game! I was just told I only have five students in school tomorrow and need a 2 hour lesson of games..this will definitely be featured.

 Cannot wait to try it tomorrow :D (I wish I could play it for reals now though D:)

If anyone still has this, would you consider reuploading it? Download link seems to be gone.

Otherwise, I'll have to make a brand new one myself :) I do have every Dixit expansion.
