I'm seeing a lot of different versions.

CIA
Top Secret Spies
Heimlich & Co.

Does anyone prefer one of these over the others? Any really big differences? My local shop has Top Secret Spies and it looks pretty good, but I don't want to spend the money if there's a better version I should keep an eye out for.

The original Edition Perlhuhn version has a great looking game board, but is very hard to get nowadays. I haven't played the other versions in ages, so I cannot say much else.

You should buy any version you have the chance to get your hands on.

are you implying that it's a rare game to find or that it's just that good of a game no matter the edition?

I think Quicksand is a similar, but slightly better game.

There are four games called Quicksand in the database - which one do you mean?

Just thought I'd throw in that Top Secret Spies has the secret cards variant and I don't think Under Cover does.

I've been playing Top Secret Spies for a while now. Great game! I like the secret cards quite a bit.
