The new game is an adults-only version of the original using the same game engine but with new words, packaging, by-standers, art, and the inclusion of blank cards, allowing players to introduce their own words to the game.
Codenames: Deep Undercover, for four to eight adults, will carry a MSRP of $19.99.
This is the second Target exclusive announced in the last few days; Days of Wonder has created an introductory version of Ticket To Ride exclusively for the mass merchant (see “Introductory ‘Ticket to Ride’ a Target Exclusive”).
Another new version of Codenames, Codenames: Pictures, is due to launch at Gen Con with general trade release to follow (see “’Codenames: Pictures’”).
