10/5/22: A great little solo game. Very difficult (some medium-difficulty scenarios take 4+ attempts before winning, and I've yet to even try the hard ones) but that's part of the fun, and it's short enough that you can do 2-4 plays in one sitting. Sometimes card draw is just unlucky but if you play defensively and pay attention to what cards have passed (which takes time to get a feel for the cards) you can do quite well. 9 11/8/22: Still lots of fun; still have some games that only last 2 days before I quit b/c bad luck but I've actually begun beating harder scenarios. 9
Initial Impression: Having played a PnP copy of this game for years, it was high time that I added an "official" copy to my collection. The component quality of this game is very well done. Colors are vibrant, the artwork gives off the mood of clandestine operations taking place after dark. I was a bit surprised at how small game and overall package was but my gaming shelf sighed a breath of relief. My favorite component is definitely the dual layered board, with its indents for the various spare rooms and Time Track. I was pleasantly surprised that the publisher took into account sleeved cards when designing the insert. This saves me from having to make my own custom insert. Overall, I'm happy to add this version to my collection.
Very cool concept, very low profile. The game doesn't have as much depth or crunch to warrant pulling it out that often, but I could see playing it if I was in the mood for the specific theme.
