Twice as big, which means double the size of the box and cards. Those hoping we would double the size of the timer for more time to think will be disappointed.
Just imagine you want to play Codenames with as many people as possible. Now everyone will see better thanks to the bigger word cards. That's pretty handy, isn't it?
It is also nice to be able to play an award winning game that crosses generations. Was “Fun” meant for Clown or Library? Hard to tell, but, it is that good to know that people will read words on the larger cards much easier. No more misreading DESERT for DESSERT.
Codenames XXL edition provides all of the components nicely sorted in a special insert created for this and the other games from the planned XXL product line.
