How to play Spyfall from Cryptozoic Entertainment/Hobby World
Danny from ZiaComics.com teaches us how to play Spyfall, the game of deceit and trickery. Spyfall is for 3-8 players ages 12 and over. The game should take no more than 15 minutes to play and is very easy to learn and comprehend.
Spyfall is a party game unlike any other. You get to be a spy and try to understand what’s going on around you. It’s really simple!
Spyfall is played over several rounds. At the start of each round all players receive cards showing the same location. Some locations are a casino, a traveling circus, a pirate ship, or even a space station. One player receives a card that says “Spy” instead of the location.
Players then start asking each other questions such as “Why are you dressed so strangely?” or “When was the last time we got a payday?” or anything else you can come up with. You are trying to guess who amongst you is the spy.
The spy doesn’t know where he is (the location). The spy has to listen carefully. When it’s his time to answer he better create a good story!
At any time during a round one player may accuse another of being a spy. If all other players agree with the accusation the round ends and the accused player has to reveal his identity.
If the spy is uncovered all other players score points. However, the spy can himself end a round by announcing that he understands what the secret location is. If his guess is correct only the spy scores points.
After a few rounds of guessing, suspicion, and bluffing the game ends. Whoever has scored the most points is victorious! And that is Spyfall.
