This is the only cheapass game I really don't like - the game play just seems wrong.

People have mentioned this before, but it's just too easy to blow up lairs, and there is no reason for not destroying your opponents lairs immediately. Specifically, you only score for capturing spies, which you can only do with a lair. If everyone keeps blowing up your lair cards as soon as you play them, you can never score. Why would you not want to blow up your enemies and stop them scoring?

The only way round this I can see would be a minimum lair size (2 or 3 cards) before anyone can attack that lair.

Yeah, this one fell flat with our group, too. Not sure why this game got the "Deluxe" treatment.

Great theme, but lousy game play. My experience has always been the same as yours, that lairs are just to hard to keep around. I don't know if the rerelease changed that or not.

The theme makes you want it to work.
