Hello & hope you've enjoyed a lovely weekend! This update is all about rule edits, editions and additions.
Espionage is now up to 64% on the campaign (which is exciting!) and we are hoping that the good fortune continues. But first, just have a look at how far the game has come! Here's one of the earliest little test packs:
The red herrings and spy cards were a lot smaller in our earlier test packs, but shuffling them proved to be a nightmare, so we scaled up the cards and made them all uniformly "poker size" at 63 x 88 mm.
We've improved our rules with the recent rounds of play-testing, with the addition of a "3 red herrings, you're frozen out for 3 rounds" rule (as opposed to completely out of the game). We found that this rule helped keep players more involved for larger player groups = more enjoyment!
*New* The Spy Edition
Our core rules (the Party Edition) and alternative rules (the Scoring Edition) provide a great all-ability game. However, we are keen to up the ante and add a bit more detail for the seasoned player and so are testing a new set of rules called The Spy Edition. We'll be adding these as a bonus to all backer levels that include Espionage the game!
Farewell for now and see you at the next update!
