In Agent Hunter, 2 players act as rival agents attempting to eliminate their opponent’s safe houses, represented by face down cards. However, the closer you get to uncovering your target, the more you risk compromising your own position. Stealth and cunning are your greatest allies, for only agents that remain hidden in the shadows will survive the hunt.

It’s spy vs. spy in this secret agent themed card game from AEG.

IMG_20160220_151201Where Art Thou Romeo? (Crash Games)

A nanogame in which 3-5 players take turns taking on the role of Juliet, who is attempting to find Romeo amongst the others players. Each card, other than Juliet, has two different roles from which to choose. Players holding these cards choose one of the two roles, which will subsequently make them want to convince the Juliet player that they either are or are not Romeo or perhaps point out who they think Romeo might be.

Romeo & Juliet themed card game where you have to convince Juliet that you’re actually Romeo.
