The Spy Game Core Rulebook
by Felipe L. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/15/2020 01:32:33

The quality of this book is amazing, the development and the classes are a made with love by the creators and have a lot of very fun concepts. True to it intent to bring modern gameplay to 5e in a simple, yet extremely fun way.There's some grammar errors in the book, and, in my opnion, some classes (specially subclasses) need a rebalance/rewrite.Depise that, the overall quality of the product is amazing, and a more than welcome addition to my collection. My group loved the rules of infiltration and combat and I as DM loved the grab and go system using agencies and calibers. A must have if you want some modern (and easy to adapt to any period in time, even in future) gameplay for you ol'D&D 5e

The Spy Game Core Rulebook
by Cory S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/20/2020 09:13:18

As someone who backed this product on Kickstarter, I couldn't be happier with the results. The spy flavoring is fantastic and flexible enough to be familiar for anyone who knows the 5E System. Wanna run a high-stakes mission ala Casino Royale? Or have your own fantastical Mission Impossible game? Than this is the book to get.

This version of the 5e ruleset is just so much fun. It's a nice twist on familiar rules, giving them a new life!

A wonderful addition to any collection.

The Spy Game Core Rulebook

The Spy Game is a great riff on the espionage genre using 5e, with a specific focus on the cinematic and high action found in contemporary action-adventure stories. The rules are familiar to anybody who has played the latest edition of That RPG but they do not require somebody to have experience with that ruleset to grok the system. Character creation is class-based, with each class representing a specialization found in spy teams like The Face, Infiltrator, or Technician, among others. Each class further gains one of three subclasses to allow your PC to focus in further on a specific approach to their given trade. Class features are presented in clear and concise language, and there's some fun flavor text to suggest different ways to go about your tradecraft in game.

As you should probably expect in a game inspired by spy movies, there's rules for equipment (including gadgets) and vehicles (including chases), and there's some cool options for adding a "sneaking around the enemy base" scene ala Metal Gear Solid, making stealth more of a fun back and forth game of cat-and-mouse rather than a single failed check resulting in a fight. The language is inclusive and sensitive to the issues of the real world, which I appreciated, and the art and design is great.

If you are new to RPGs or want way to bring your 5e group into a world of intrigue and danger, I definitely recommend checking this one out!

The Spy Game Quickstart
by Jonathan B. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/08/2019 19:29:20

This game is looking amazing! After browsing and reading through the Quickstart I backed the game on Kickstarter. I am a huge fan of the espionage genre and this game looks like it will be my spy game of choice. The 5e rules adapted to the modern spy genre have been adapted and expanded upon brilliantly in this product. I can hardly wait to start seeing write ups for Q Branch style gadgets and iconic super agents like James Bond 007, Ethan Hunt, Jason Bourne, John Wick, Napoleon Solo, etc. This quickstart also contains rules for gadgets, vehicles, chases, and more! A must have game for any spy genre fan!

The Spy Game Quickstart
by RJ D. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/02/2019 19:38:08

These rules read like someone gutted and skinned Spycraft and haphazardly stapled them onto 5E's skeleton without understanding what made Spycraft good. The biggest red flag for me is that these rules include an adventure, which means it's at least in a beta-playable state, but I could not find any rules in this quickstart about putting a silencer on your gun IN A SPY GAME. Not even a sidenote. Nothing.

Hi RJ D. We're sorry that you didn't like it. While we were fans of Spycraft, we wanted to make something that's easy to understand and play for 5e gamers. The quickstart is only a taster of the game as a whole, and there are of course options for all sorts of weapon mods, equipment, tools and attachements in the main game, including a silencer. We hope that you might take another look at the full game if we fully fund, but understand either way. Kind regards, BCG
