What's this then?
Word association is probably a good way to describe it. The cards are all illustrated in a style very similar to Mysterium so it would be very easy to play with Mysterium's deck to increase the longevity of the game. Dixit's cards could be used in Mysterium also.
Each round of Dixit, one player selects a card from their hand, thinks up a sentence/word/mime/anything really, and plays the card facedown, telling the others the sentence/word/etc conjured by the card. The other players all choose cards that they think match and play them facedown. The cards are shuffled and then revealed. Players secretly vote for the card that best matches the narrator's story, and player whose cards are chosen score a number of points. But if everyone correctly guesses the lead players card then the lead player gets not points.
So your clue as the lead player ideally needs to be vague enough to not make your card obvious but still leave a chance for at least one person to work it out.
