The basic premise of the game is that each spy must get to his/her base before the 'enemy' guesses his/her identity. Everyone is a spy and must collect spy equipment along the way to home base; e.g. the French spy needs French equipment. But if you buy French spy equipment, you risk giving away your identity. So you buy... German spy equipment. Etc.
Each player becomes a spy by drawing a spy identification card and assume that identity. They then try to uncover their opponents' identity while trying to keep their own identity a secret. Your mission is to collect the required codebooks, keys, passwords and disguises and make it to your embassy in Spy Alley without being detected or to remain the last spy to retain their identity. It's a simple game with lots of twists, but suprisingly intense. There is a bit of chance with the roll of a die, but there is also plenty of strategy! To throw people off your trail, you can acquire items from the other nationalities, you try to anticipate how the other spies will use their move cards and free gift cards, you also have to know when to risk going down Spy Alley and the possibility of being exposed! Watch your body language, it can give you away! It's exhilirating to experience the thrill of hunting and the paranoia of being the hunted! Spy Alley will bring out some interesting sides of family and friends. Among the many benefits of this game, it has helped sharpen our thirteen year old's reasoning skills. She has also developed quite an ability to bluff!
The strategies are endless and it's a game that never gets old. I recommend playing with three or more players. It's a great family game and, without question, Spy Alley is a game that would put even the great James Bond on the edge of his seat!
The gist is you must guess the identity of the other players. (Players are randomly assigned to be a spy from a country at the beginning of the game.) Game play involves going around the board collecting items necessary to complete yourself as a spy, and guessing who is who. Bluffing by purchasing the wrong items is a good strategy, as is buying the necessary items from other spies. There are move cards to use instead of a single dice roll and random gift items to draw from the card pile instead of purchasing them.
This game can be played by an adult with children without it favoring the adults who are presumably better at games. There is enough random chance as well as strategy to be interesting for multiple replaying of the game.
Best if 3 or more people play but two can play and still have fun.
(No knowledge other than simple math and bluffing skills will be gained by playing this game. But then some games should just be fun and this is one of them.)
Better with 3-6 players, but can be played with 2 in a pinch (quick game).
