This game is best described as Tales of the Arabian Nights, with an actual game attached to it, with a 70s spy theme. Players must foil the evil plot of Dr. Lobo by travelling around the world collecting "intel" and defeating his henchmen. As they do so, they get encounters that are read from a very large spiral-bound book that describes some spy-related activity and often involves a skill check. The writing is surprisingly good for the most part, and many scenes are described that feel like they were taken straight out of a James Bond film. It's a fun theme, and it really comes to life in the encounters.

Players also have to keep track of the stats of their respective agents. They're rated in stuff like "hand to hand" and "persuasion", and also have some collection of advanced skills (no rating, you either have them or don't) like "seduction", "lockpicking", or "gambling/luck". Each encounter requires you to roll against some skill, or you can automatically pass with the appropriate advanced skill. Passing an encounter will give you some kind of bonus, often a skill increase. Failing one will carry a penalty (some number of wounds, losing skills points, etc.) and also will advance Dr. Lobo's plot.

The theme is fun, the gameplay is decent, and it does make you feel like you're watching a Bond movie. You can even play it solo, which is nice.

First edition with spiral-bound book of missions (I believe that makes it the deluxe version). Lightly played.

Originally came in at the #11 spot in 2014 and then fell down to #42 in 2015 this one continues to move on down to position #80.

This game used to be the top dog in the storytelling choose-your-own-adventure genre of games but has been unseated by Above and Below. However, it is still a good game that does a good job of making your decisions matter and while using your character skills to mitigate the curves it throws at you.

Great condition.

1st Kickstarter edition w/ encounter book and extras.

Due to the large size & weight of this game, it will be shipped via FedEx, so a P.O. Box is not an option. I will however eat the extra shipping to send it to an APO/FPO/DPO. I will cover the first $15 to HI/AK, free elsewhere.

#5:

This one already hits the TOP 900.
A nice storytelling co-op which is not so easy to win.
An average rating of 7.1 is imo way too low.
Who doesn't want to be a spy drinking beer on a terrace while doing his job?
I love this one.
Maybe the price keeps the quantity of owners low?

English first edition. The box has some light shelf wear. Some of the character sheets have some light wear. Otherwise the components are in very good condition. The Kickstarter extras are included.

One new game for me in May, so that's what I picked. The new "expansion" really turns the base game into a whole new game, so I'll include it as well.

Agents of SMERSH - 1 play - 7
First Published 2012

"Story-telling co-op with fun retro spy theme. Longer than I would like, and I really dislike that the final showdown is (by design) a crapshoot where you win or lose based on some chit draws."

I enjoy games that feature randomness and mitigation, but I prefer it in small doses throughout the game. I'm not a fan of games that require you to make one big bet, and win or lose based on that. My plays.



Elder Sign: Omens of Ice - 1 play - 7
First Published 2016

"Very good expansion for a game I don't love. It adds quite a bit of theme (yay), with a narrative arc, and the storms and supplies. It adds a few ways for players to cooperate with each other (yay, although more would be better). The face-down storms and adventures sound cool...but they are annoyingly swingy since you have to go in blind. Overall, I would rather play it than the base game, but it's not enough better for me to buy it, so I plan to trade/sell my base game away." My plays.

MISS


Status: Sold for the same as I paid for it.
Overall feeling: Loved the idea of a story telling game, but it fell flat, not sure it was the game or the theme.
Delivery: On time I think
Value for money: ok
Kickstarter shinies: free expansion
Reason for Kickstarter: I didn't have a story telling game and wanted to try it, a well run kickstarter but coops are not well suited to my group.
