      I assume this app is not going to happen? Would love to see it happen!

      I still don't have my Agents shipped. And i got no response on my messages.

    3. Deejay Sherman on

      Good news, thanks for the speedy reply

      While we are still trying to make an actual app a reality, we are in talks with Tabletopia, a tabletop simulator, for setting it up on their system, hopefully very soon.

      Hi Saar,
      Back in September '13 you said you were talking to Playdek about the app... Has anything progressed? or is the app Vaporware?
      Still hoping for a digital version.

    6. Pachro on

      Any further info on the app, Saar? Or is it not happening?

      Wow, you are right, there were plans for an app. I'd love to see it become reality. That way I won't have to learn the games in a test play.

      Just got my package in. That fancy box... is fancy. I really love it. Gorgeous stuff. Magazine came in a bit curved due to the packaging and it being wrapped around the box but luckily nothing got damaged.

      Did I not get shipped to... Or is this a delay? Last post was months ago saying shipping was in weeks.

    11. Marco Grosso on

      Any news on the App? Screenshots, beta test, progress reports?

    12. David Sumantry on

      This is really late, considering the game has been funded for over a year, but I created a bit of a review/how-to for The Agents and posted it to YouTube today. Please let me know what you all think!

      mikester - Email Saar at playtheagents@gmail.com

      Do note that he lives in Israel and with the current crisis over there the last we heard from him he was reporting from a bomb shelter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/673576049/the-agents-return-the-double-edged-cards-game-is-b/posts/926834

      Is there another way to contact Saar besides the "contact me" button here? I've been trying to get my Agents game for over a month shipped out to me but still haven't heard from him. I wrote him a few times through KS with no answer.

    15. Pachro on

      What's the status of our Agents app?

    16. Ruinaes on

      Given the recent Potato Salad campaign...How long until a legit Maple Syrup campaign?

      Hey btw, since we are all lovers of unique card games. Check out YOMI. It's pretty awesome and could use some more time in the spotlight. I think some of you might really enjoy it.

      Honestly, I'd love to know what the status of the Agents App is. Is that even still happening?

      Hi, I never received my reward. Have you shipped everything out? Thanks.

      I'm looking for feedback from experienced Agents players on some house rules. I love this game, and want to make a version my group loves too.
      tl;dr
      My group didn’t like The Agents because of the long downtime, lack of long-term strategy, and missing third act. I propose 4 new, untested rules that seemed cool when I brainstormed them:
      1) Interruptions: Pay other players to play free agents when it’s not your turn.
      2) Reserving Commands: Save your actions to use later in the turn cycle.
      3) Loyalty: Put loyalty tokens on agents to make them harder to manipulate.
      4) Missions Endgame: Game end is triggered by completing missions, not hitting an IP goal.
      If these sound interesting to you, take a look at the full post and pipe in with your own ideas and opinions.

      If you have not received the translated expansion PnPs please message/email me so I can send them to you!!

      @Brett - First Aid unlocked the player aid cards, which are also the turn order cards.

    24. Brett Smoot on

      So looking back at the stretch goals from this run. What did first aid unlock for us...?

    25. Kraig on

      OK, here's my take on 'The Mavericks'.
      Being a big X Men fan, it put me in mind of Maverick - aka - Agent Zero, who was one of several mutant agents who worked for Team X, a CIA black ops team, which was disbanded and turned on its agents.The main five (V) in Team X were: Sabretooth, Wolverine, Maverick, Kestrel and Silver Fox.

      So I'm guessing that the Mavericks are a special group of mutant agents with special abilities.I guess they are either costly to recruite, or they go to the agent that will pay them the most. Am I warm Saar? ;)

      Saar Shai, I have contacted you via your e-mail playtheagents@gmail.com, sent you a private message, and posted here and have not received a response.

      I still have not received the game, and me and my friends are really interested in trying the game. What can I do?

      The latest update reminded me I haven't received my copy of the game yet. I'm in Spain - should I be worried, or...?

    32. JoshisSasquatch on

      Is there a way to send agents to the retired agents pile? I understand that you can buy them from that pile for 2 points, but in my playing I didn't see how to send them there.

    33. Saar Shai 3-time creator on

      @Steve - I replaced all cards and games for any backers who contacted me about any issues. Did you contact me? Please email me at playtheagents@gmail.com with details of any issues with your game. Thanks.

      I'll ask again: were replacements issued for plastic cards that were damaged in the cutting process? On the Tiny Metal Dog show interview, it was mentioned that this happened. My experience was otherwise; the damaged cards were not replaced.

      Matt: how about a tablet, i used mine to surf as well as an eating plate, now that's multitasking!

    37. Matt S on

      Need some more intel... getting hungry but don't want to abandon surveillance activities to get food.

    38. Ahmad Khan on

      @Matt: fair point, gotta think ahead to the last 48 hours block.

    39. Matt S on

      I would imagine.. it'll be a few more hours.
      Isn't the create time, the same time the campaign ends?

      Would probably want to time it so it ends in the early evening on either the eastern or western coast.

    40. Ahmad Khan on

      well saar updated his avatar, hopefully soon?

    41. Martín on

      How much time left for launching???
      :)

    42. Kirill Krymskiy on

      Saar, don't joke with us! We were waiting for the new campaign since your first one ended=)

    43. Kraig on

      Hello again all! Am so glad it's bank holiday here. I'm off work, the sun is shining and we have a new Agents campaign starting today. What more can you ask for? :)

    44. Saar Shai 3-time creator on

      Just a few more hours, guys. Putting the finishing touches now...

    45. Missing avatar

      Mr. Knock on

      I hope Saar sends out an update a few hours before launch so we can be ready to throw in.

    46. Matt S on

      I pinged Saar hoping to get a route estimate on when he was launching on the 21st.
      Not sure i'll hear back before it launches though.
