Product Description

From the Manufacturer From Mata Hari to James Bond, spies and secret agents have filled our imaginations. Now, you have the chance to play spy and counter spy in a dark alley - SPY ALLEY. Deceptively simple and surprisingly intense, Spy Alley keeps you on the edge of your seat. Players become a spy for their given country and try to uncover their opponents' identity while keeping their own identity a secret. Players use deductive reasoning to expose other spies while attempting to complete their mission by obtaining the necessary code books, disguises, keys and passwords. You will be surprised how difficult it is to deceive your friends and family. A slip of the tongue, the blink of an eye, or even the twitch of a muscle may give your identity away. Players must be careful when entering Spy Alley. It is a calculated risk that only the bravest spies will take. The first spy to complete their mission or the last to retain their identity wins the game. For 2-6 players ages 8 and up. It takes about 45 minutes to play a game.

Customer Reviews:

  • Great deductive fun, in countries around the world
    Study what your opponents purchase to deduce thier identity, and collect your country's spy materials and land on your embassy to win. Earn money, buy tickets, get gifts... a cross between Monopoly and Clue, that's sure to be played again and again.

    Better with 3-6 players, but can be played with 2 in a pinch (quick game).

  • Fun for both the babysitter and the babysat.
    I'm a nanny & one of the kids I care for received this for his birthday last year. He and his sister adore it, and unlike a lot of children's games, it's also a lot of fun for me. It's similar to Clue & Monopoly, but way more fun than either. It can also be finished quickly when necessary, or go on much longer.... and generally when we finish we want to start over right away. The rules are pretty simple-- the kids (ages 7 & 9) picked it up really quickly-- but the potential for bluffing & strategy keep it interesting....more info
  • Great for the whole family!!
    My 7 year old and 10 year old regularly beat my husband and I on this game. They're good at being spies! It's fun for everyone every time. This game and Cranium Cadoo are the top 2 picks for us when it comes time to play a family game....more info

  • Spy Alley is a terrific game for all ages!
    We like board games and were looking for a highly rated game for Christmas.
    After researching the Internet extensively, we found Spy Alley. We were NOT disappointed. Even some family members who are not board game fans like Spy Alley . . . . a lot! The bluffing and the strategy elements of the game are great. Plus, even if a player is seemingly behind and apparently has little chance of winning, the tables can be turned and that player can win the game. This game has great replay value. Lastly, the game is fast-paced, so players do not get bored or fidgety waiting for their next turn. Highly recommended....more info
  • Kids love it!
    Spy Alley competes with electronics in our house. It gets its share of playing time, so the kids must like it. Fairly simple rules allow the game to be played without adult supervision. Over the hoidays, my 11 year old kept several 6-8 year olds entertained with this game. No fighting, just fun....more info

  • From the Board Games Editor at BellaOnline.com
    Spy Alley is a suspenseful family game for two to six players ages 8 to adult. Each player is given a secret spy identity (French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, German or American) which they must protect while accumulating four things: their password, disguise, codebook and embassy key, and then hustle back to their embassy before the other players discover who they are. In order to accumulate all of these things, they must make their way around the board, bluffing and counter-bluffing.

    Anyone who loves Clue but wants a little something different should not hesitate to pick up this great game!...more info
  • An intriguing game (pun intended)
    I remember getting this game a while ago for Christmas. Since then, I've been fortunate enough to play the game countless times with friends, and to realize what a great game it is.

    You are a spy, but only you know which country you are from. You must travel around the board and purchase a password, disguise, code book, and keys for yourself, and then travel into the Spy Alley, a special area on the board where the end square for each spy is located.

    But, danger lurks everywhere. Other people can guess who you are, so you must not only buy items for yourself, but for other spies, in hopes that you will bluff the opponents. It's all great, suspenseful fun. Simply roll the die and go wherever it dictates. Aim for the Black Market, as you can buy anything you want there.

    If you want to move a certain number of squares, you may use a move card, special blue cards which have a number printed on them, symbolizing the number of squares (from 1 to 6) that the card will allow you to travel. The number is always different, so try to obtain a good number of these.

    Free gift cards give you a random free item for any spy. Some free gifts, however, are wild cards, which may symbolize any item that you need. You may keep these wild cards, but be careful: on the special confiscation square, your opponent may be able to steal your wild card away!

    "Spy Alley" is a great game for the whole family. It teaches logic and reasoning (who will you buy for?) all while providing great enjoyment for everyone. Cloak and dagger intrigue has never been so much fun!...more info
  • Fun for the whole family
    My 15 year old asked for this game and I was worried that it would be too easy for him...was I wrong! It was challenging enough for him to play, but not so hard that my 11 year old could not be competitive too!...more info
