Is it possible to get good at this game?Does this game teach any useful skills?

I don’t think there’s a generalized skill of being good at this game as such, but you can get good at it when playing with a particular group, as you become more familiar with their thought processes. Playing the game might not develop any individual’s skills, but it can help the group as a whole develop camaraderie by encouraging people to make mental models of each other.
Dixit, which has similar gameplay, does develop group-independent skills—though in-group references often dominate skill.
Heh. specifically, max point scoring Dixit play involves explicitly referencing an in-joke known by some of the group, and unknown to others.
