FFGSPY008 $12.99

FFGSPY008 $12.99

In Spy Alley Dice, each player becomes a spy for their given country. Players roll the dice for a chance to guess their opponents identities. If a player rolls 3 of a kind, they may take a guess of any player as the spy that is on the three dice. If a player rolls five of a kind, they may either guess a player as any spy, or they may take a big chance and try to accomplish their mission. To accomplish their mission, the player that rolled the 5 of a kind must ask each player in a clockwise manner if they want to guess him as the spy identity on the dice. If no player is willing to make a guess and the player is the spy on the dice, that player has accomplished his mission and wins the game. Otherwise, the last player remaining in the game is the winner.

Rivet Wars is a miniatures boardgame that springs forth from the warped imagination of Ted Terranova – set on a world that never quite left World War I but with crazy technology like walking tanks, diesel powered armor, unicycled vehicles and armor plated cavalry! Don’t let the cute visuals fool you; it’s a world full of angst, war-torn camaraderie and dark humor. Rivet Wars is at its heart a strategy game, with both players deploying units each round to counter the threats set forth by their opponent and stay one tactical step ahead. Heavily influenced by Ted’s experience working on RTS games like Rise of Nations, players gather resources (bunkers and capture points) and use these to deploy streams of new units! There’s an ebb and flow on the tactical landscape and you can stock up surprises for your opponent to be unleashed even as he thinks he’s winning!
