Jinx is a new game in the Dixit family but unlike the original game the drawings are not realistic illustrations depicting scenes but images halfway between abstraction and figuration.
During the game 9 cards are exposed in a square 3x3. The active player draws a locator map that will show him one of the nine cards with which he will play. This location is held secret.
The player must now speak, sing, act out something that makes thinking about this card just like in "Dixit". The other players go around and point to the card they think is correct but beware! Only one player can point a given card. Once a player has chosen the right card, the turn stops (although some have not chosen). The player who finds the right card keeps it (each card gives a victory point). Players who erred give their cards to the player active. But if neither player gets it right card, the active player must return one of the cards previously won.
