Retailers are required to purchase 24 Codenames, 24 Codenames: Pictures and 12 Codenames: Duet to qualify for the Oversized Retailer Demo Kit. The demo kit includes oversized components for all three Codenames products, packed in one oversized display box (12.7” x 4” x 18.2”). The demo product is not for resale.
Vlaada Chvatil’s popular Codenames won both the Spiel des Jahres (see “'Spiel des Jahres' 2016 Winner Announced”) and Origins Award for Game of Year in 2016 (see “2016 Origins Award Winners”). Codenames: Duet will release on August 15 (see “'Codenames Duet'”).
USAopoly announced a licensing agreement with CGE earlier this year to produce licensed versions of the game (see “Disney and Marvel Editions of Hit Game 'Codenames'”).
