About the intervention

Two teams compete by each having a "spymaster". The spymaster gives one-word clues that can point to multiple words on the board. The other players on the team attempt to guess their team's spy-names while avoiding the spy-names of the opposing team.

How to set it up.

  • Select a time and date for play. 

  • Open the Codenames webpage and share the link with participants.

  • Split into two teams, either manually or automatically via the on-screen option.

  • One person will be the spymaster and others will be the operatives (spies).

What to do during.

  • Encourage switching spymaster and operative roles between rounds so everyone gets to play both!
