Codenames is a word association game where two teams compete to be the first to find all of their spies.
HOW TO PLAY
A five by five grid of words is placed in the centre of the table. One spymaster from each team then gets access to a map showing where all of the spies are. In turn each spymaster gives a one-word clue that can then point their team to one or multiple words on the grid, avoiding opposing team spies and the assassin.
