I'm a yr 5 primary teacher and I play this in my class. The kids can't get enough of it. Each group (7 in the class) is a player. It's hilarious watching them accuse each other. One group had figured out who the spies were and were the sole rejecters of a mission team. The entire class thought that they were the spies for the rest of the game. Suckers! Spies won. :-)

One thing the kids like though is for me to make up stories about the mission that is about to be attempted. They don't just like to 'go on a mission'. So I make up stories about hacking the government computer to figure out who the spies are or blowing a dam to flood industry or stealing trucks to move Resistance equipment around.
I'm thinking of running a campaign maybe and if the Resistance succeeds in a mission then they might get a game bonus. Similar to the plot cards maybe.

Had to add a rule for the classroom as this is a noisy game. Kids overexcited most of the time. Rule - When I blow the whistle everyone must be silent.

Thinking of linking with the Curriculum (Australia) this fits in nicely with the English area of Speaking & Listening. Also some Maths involved in the area of Statistics & Data - what are the odds? Risk assessment, etc.
