Description Edit | History

Spies is a game of espionage and intrigue for up to five players, set in the turbulent European era of 1933-1939. You control the secret service of one of the major powers of that era - Germany, Italy, Russia, France, and Britain - in the constant struggle to gather your opponents secrets and return them safely to your own capital while protecting your own country's secrets.

8 Replacement Action Cards for the Chits
Sat down and whipped these together today. Not the most flashy. They print well on Avery Business card paper 5877 without the perforated edges, though the backs of those cards don't accept ink from an inkjet so may want to look for some other kind that does front and back on the same template. When winter break gets here I will sit down and make cards for the EVENT TILES and also try to jazz them all up some.

11 Spies listing by cities
This is a summary of the event tile awards, including years available, totals by city, and average results. This sucker took quite a while to complete. This should give the casual Spies! player a good idea of where to place your spies for the maximum return.
