Down from spot #11 this game is still the top dog in storytelling select-an-option thematic games. It really does a good job of making your decisions matter and using your skills to mitigate the scenarios it throws at you. There is lots of reading and after several plays it might get a little stale, but then there are expansions to renew the experience. AND it's hard but beatable.

I got this on the back of the kickstarter and it came with the whole kit and kaboodle. I loved the idea of Tales of the Arabian Nights with a Bond theme. Never played it.

I got a short explanation demo + a few rounds of play with the game's creator. It's basically Tales of Arabian Nights in a gonzo version of James Bond (the designer even said there was a bit of Get Smart in the game).

For ToAN players: I do like that half of the encounter lookup was simplified a bit. IIRC it involved handing a card to the player that told the player which reaction matrix to use.

There is quite a number of other things to like about the game: it's a cooperative game with a more stated goal that ToAN. You're trying to defeat the evil villain by collecting information tokens on the board. ToAN is mostly aimless (sure, you get one goal card) which is fine, but the victory conditions are arbitrary. SMERSH may or may not be just as random, but it's clear that you're actively trying to accomplish something. (If it's too random, that could count against the game instead of for it).

The thing is, I don't like the gonzo Bond theme as much as I like Tales of Arabian Nights, a game I really like a lot, so I'm in no rush to buy SMERSH. That said, I would definitely jump at the opportunity to play a whole game of this.

This is for everything that came with the Complete Package pledge level in last year's Second Edition Kickstarter campaign.

It includes:
2nd Edition of Agents of SMERSH
The expansion Swagman's Hope
A boxed set of all previous Kickstarter extras and promos

Everything has been opened, but only the base game has been played.

The Kickstarter extras and promos have been incorporated into the base box - both the base and expansion boxes are included.

SR $150



The Dr. Lobo bust I received is painted and looks really great.

You know there's a problem when a game sits unplayed on your table for several days, and it's not due to lack of time but lack of interest. Such was the case with Agents of SMERSH, a re-printed game I Kickstarted with high hopes but not enough research.

To put it simply, I didn't feel there were enough meaningful decisions for me to make. The concept of the game is cool: build up skills and try to pick situations where they will be useful. But I found that didn't happen in practice. The final straw came tonight when - SPOILER ALERT!!!! - my agent with great athletic skills drew an encounter that presented her with six options, none of which sounded much like an athletic test. Her deception was also good, so I chose "I'm your biggest fan," which sounded like something a deceiver would say. Then I read the actual encounter, which has me strapped to a table enduring a hostile interrogation, which tests...athletic skills. At that point, I wondered what the point of having me develop skills and choose options is if the end result is going to be randomly determined.

I had no desire to play further, so back into the box it went, and my KS copy will become trade bait.

I now have Forge War on the table, and it looks fantastic.
