Spot on and great analogy!
Each device on a network must have a unique IP address.
Think of an IP address like a phone number. If two people, (say Tom in Tallahasse and Pedro in Phoenix), both had exactly the same phone number, when you dial their same phone number how would the phone company know which person you want to talk to?
It's the same with IP addresses. Each device needs a unique IP address so that the router(s) know where to direct the traffic.
