Spy Alley – The Game of Suspense and Intrigue

Spy_Alley_3It just occurred to me that I’ve never written about one of my favorite games we carry, Spy Alley. This Mensa Select game is not only fun, it’s challenging for the entire family. Using your secret spy identity, you try to collect all your game pieces from around the board before anyone guesses who you are. Sounds simple, but it’s deceptively intense, trust me!

Why I like it sooooo much?

  • Great for anybody in the family 8+ (I’m 33 and I love it)
  • It’s simple to learn, but not so simple that there’s no strategy involved
  • It takes memory, strategy, skill, and a little “poker faced” bluffing to win
  • It’s Mensa Select and has been tested in their rigorous qualification test

Why I don’t like it…

  • Sike. Did you read above ^^^^^ It’s awesome.

If you’re looking to add another game into your family’s game night rotation, I highly recommend Spy Alley.
