This is a good game to step up to when Amazing Labyrinth gets easy. Think Plumber Pete with a lot more fun. Each player has 40 second turn to slide the tiles around and complete as many circuits as possible from his defuser to his opponent's fuses. Unused seconds can be banked for the final attempt. An encroachment penalty is there to prevent the simple solution of moving the defuser adjacent to the fuse. Rules are clearly explained; very easy for a child to explain it to another. The board is app. 8.5 inches square. Each tile is 1 inch square. The initial setup involves removing the plastic pieces from the 'trees' and installing them on the game board. The tiles are placed randomly, but the orientation of the tile in it's position is done by matching the triangle in the corner to another triangle on the board. The tiles are plastic with a sticker that has the printed circuit. Fuses are sturdy; one would have to work hard to break off the tips. The divider board is cardboard and will wear easily if care is not taken. Rules brochure is on heavy coated paper. Game set up and storage is simple and well explained.

Spy Wire will be a good one for holiday gatherings as it's fast and the adults will be willing to match their wits against the kids too. We haven't played a lot of games, but so far it seems well balanced in terms of no big advantage of the first player in a turn. Good game.

My daughters (ages 7 and 8) got to play this game today and were addicted. It's marketed toward boys, but is appealing for both boys and girls. You slide the tiles trying to make connections before the electronic timer signals the end of your turn. If you make a connection(s) before time is out, stop your timer, and those extra seconds will be added to your final turn. Pull your opponents pegs on all the connections you've made, and when you find all three "special" pegs, your opponent has one last turn to try to tie the game, otherwise you win! The electronic timer and voice commands, coupled with the need for speed and strategy, make this game a winner. Even kids who prefer video games to board games will be drawn to this.

Verified Purchase
We bought this game for our 11 year old boy. Once we figured it out, we enjoyed it. It's important to read the directions carefully (for instance, the tiles must be placed in an exact orientation on the game board which is called a "tablet" in the directions). Positives outweigh the negatives, but here are a few negatives. We managed to somehow lose a peg under one of the electronic timers and had to take the board apart on that end to retrieve it. It seems like it would be simple enough to seal the edges so this wouldn't happen. But now that we know, we can be more careful. It also would be nice to have an extra peg or two of each color in case one of the small pieces gets lost. While it's nice to have pull out drawers to store the small fuses, it would have been nice to have a drawer added underneath to store the tiles since they are just sitting loosely on the gameboard. It's necessary to keep the box or store the tiles in a ziplock. My son and I enjoyed playing the game and played it several times in a row. His visiting friend of about the same age, however, found it frustrating and wouldn't play again after the first time. I would definitely buy this game again.
