Photomone antsassins header

A party game about communicating a secret code to your team mates. But the code is made out of weird shapes—and you may only say words.


What do I need?

Three simple steps.

  • Read the short playful rules.
  • Click “Download”, go to “Files”, and pick any one of the Beginner’s Sets.
  • Print it, cut it, play!

Want more? You can generate your own PDF with material below, according to your wishes. (Or, at the “Download”, handpick your own Code Cards and Tiles combo.)

Hey, Pandaqi here! This game is quite experimental. It requires your group to be imaginative and take creative leaps, otherwise it falls flat. I am open to any feedback on how to improve it. If you read my devlog, you’ll see how much I struggled to make it “good enough”.


Input your settings, click the button. A new page will open that generates a nice PDF for you!

Turns the material mostly grayscale.

What to Include?

(Click to fold.)
Optional; you only need one set of these to play forever. Can be left out to make a first game simpler to learn.

Everything is sorted based on how easy it is to play. Rectangles are more predictable (and easy to see shapes in) than hexagons or triangles. The same is true Photomone and Mosaic vs the rest.

Not working? Don't worry! At the "Download" link, you can also find PDFs I already generated for you.

This game is basically my attempt at turning the Photomone idea into a “traditional game”, where you just print and cut material once, and can then replay it forever. I also tried to take it one step further again, by adding many different tiles with “vague visualizations” that can be combined to maybe look like something else, and code cards with special abilities and actions.

Yes, the game Codenames was a direct inspiration for this. But also, yes, as stated at the top of the game page, this game ended up quite experimental and not as amazing as I’d hoped. Hopefully one day I will figure out what hampered the development so much and provide an updated version that is smoother.

For a detailed diary about the game, check out the devlog. It is looong and writes about aaaaall the problems I encountered and different versions.
