I. Description:

Players personify secret services of various nations who attempt to eradicate a terrorist threat, an organization known as UTE.

UTE is led by Kara, a fighter whose life has been a living hell. Now, Kara blames the world. There is no other choice, she must be eliminated or she will destroy the world.

Her organization has already infiltrated strategic locations: a nuclear submarine, a space operations center, a virology laboratory and the United Nations, having seized one of its high-ranked officials.

Those locations must be cleared and the hostage rescued. There is nobody to be trusted; the secret services must act stealthily, like terrorists. Especially since there is distrust among nations as each of them wants to be the great savior of the world. Undercover agents might hide among your own services. Acting stealthily demands that players use the spatial vigilance most efficiently in order to locate agents, targets, tactical or strategic locations and coordinate operations.


II. Goal of the game:

To have scored the greatest number of Victory Points once the number of neutralized strategic objectives is reached. The players score by:

* sending spies in the field;

* taking out sentinels;

* neutralizing strategic objectives;

* eliminating enemy spies.

Victory points are shown bottom, right of each card:

- strategic objective cards, with striped outline;

- sentinel cards, grey with grid background;

- spy cards.

The other cards don’t have any victory points:

- 4 red cards - tactical locations remaining in the field;

- several equipment cards to help players in their task.

III. Game basics:

The game turn, except the first one, takes place in 2 phases: movement of two satellites followed by one action for each of the 3 satellites. This action can be performed, conditionally, on a card in the column where the satellite is located: the more satellites in the same column, the farther the action range, on deepest lines. If a line is inaccessible, it is possible that the vote at the end of the game turn allows a change regarding these lines' order.

First, it is generally, better to place (or plan to place) a satellite in the column of one’s spy 1 and possibly in the column of a simple sentinel (15) or in a column with an easily accessible tactical card (on lines 1 to 3).

Once you master the rules, many other tactics shall be accessible to you from the start.

IV. Game Tactics and Mechanics:

Game rulers with 7 slots is one of the originality of the games, it allows to manage easely the cards, when cards has to be moved.

Main mechanics is power combinations between cards and playerboards.

This game is rich of tactical and strategic possibilities :

  • Game duration can be calibrated: 2 experts players with 1 aim, the game lasts less than 10 minutes; but with 5 aims you can play 1 hour.
  • Play turns are smooth (3 actions in most of the case), even with 6 players;
  • The single player mode is a real puzzle challenge and allows to understand the mechanisms;
  • There are many strategies and many ways to win;
  • Many possible combos to turn the tables (for tough players).

DARK AGENT en Français

I. Descriptif:

Les joueurs incarnent des services secrets de nations qui tentent d'éradiquer une menace terroriste , une organisation connue sous le nom de UTE.

UTE est dirigée par Kara, une combattante dont la vie a été un enfer. Karaen veut aujourd'hui au monde entier. Le choix n'existe plus, il faut l'éliminer ou elle détruira le monde.

Son organisation a déjà infiltré des endroits stratégiques : sous-marin nucléaire, centre de contrôle spatial, laboratoire de virologie et les nations unies dont elle a enlevé un haut fonctionnaire.

Il va falloir neutraliser ces endroits et délivrer l'otage. On ne sait plus à qui se fier, les services doivent agir dans l'ombre, comme le font les terroristes. D'autant plus que les nations ne se font pas confiance, chacun veut être le "grand sauveur" du monde. Les agents infiltrés peuvent se trouver parmi vos propres services. Pour agir dans l'ombre, il faudra utiliser au mieux la vigilance spatiale pour localiser les agents, les cibles, les cartes tactiques rouges ou lieux stratégiques et diriger les opérations.

II. But

Avoir le plus grand nombre de points de victoires lorsque le nombre d'objectifs stratégiques neutralisés est atteint. On marque en :

* envoyant des espions sur le terrain.

* neutralisant des sentinelles.

* neutralisant des objectifs stratégiques.

* éliminant les espions adverses.

Les points de victoire sont indiqués en bas à droite de chaque carte:

- cartes objectifs stratégiques avec un contour tigré.

- cartes sentinelles grises avec un fond grillagé.

- cartes espions

 Les autres cartes n'ont pas de point de victoire:

- 4 cartes tactiques rouges qui restent sur le terrain

- Plusieurs cartes équipement pour aider les joueurs dans leur tâche.

III. Principe:

Le tour de jeu, hormis le premier, se déroule en 2 phases: déplacement de deux satellites puis une action pour chacun des 3 satellites. Cette action peut être effectuée sur une carte dans la colonne où est situé le satellite avec une contrainte: plus il y a de satellites sur une même colonne, plus l'action pourra être effectuée sur les lignes les plus basses. Si une ligne est inaccessible, le vote de fin de tour permet éventuellement de changer l'ordre de ces lignes.

Dans un premier temps, il vaut mieux généralement mettre (ou prévoir de déplacer) un satellite sur la colonne de son espion 1,puis éventuellement sur la colonne d'une sentinelle facile (15) ou bien une colonne avec une carte tactique rouge facilement accessible (sur les lignes 1 à 3). .

Quand vous maîtriserez les règles, beaucoup d'autres possibilités s'ouvrent à vous dès le départ.
