Yeah, this price is not great...
Code Names Duet is a great game and I definitely recommend it if you are looking for something to play with your significant other.
It works similar to regular Code Names but it is only for two players and the stakes are a lot higher because there is a limited number of guesses and the threat of the death card looms large. This version of the game uses the same key card as the original game, but in this version the card is double sided so each player has their own word configuration.
Because of this a word that is safe for you can be dangerous for your partner, this ads an interesting dynamic to the game.
The description doesn't give me a very good idea of how Codenames Duet works. I've played Codenames and it's a simple but great game, but it already involves teams, so "Codenames but for teams instead of single players" doesn't really make sense to me. Looking it up, it seems like actually it would be more accurate to say Codenames Duet is like Codenames but you can still play it with only 2 people, so I think the description has it sort of backward.

Codenames Duet is really the 2 player version of Codenames. Not sure what the description here is trying to say. If you haven't played the original version its hard to say what Duet does differently. If you have played, it basically gives each "team" (read; player) their own map of the board that only shows where their colors are located. There are also some inconsistencies between the two maps. The biggest difference is that there is now a turn limit for getting all of the cards revealed so it forces each player to try and go for more than 1 card in the clues.
