Get Adler: Whispers
Whispers is the new expansion for Get Adler! Deduction Card Game which was recently funded on Kickstarter.
Whispers adds The Mole (player 7) and French Agent Bonnet (player 8).The objective of The Mole is to pass vital information to double-agent Josef Adler (and Kate Collins), while the mission of Agent Gigi Bonnet is to intercept enemy communications and pass that intelligence to her colleagues. Both of these characters, and the way they hunt for and pass on intelligence, is unique and interesting (not to mention fun!)
You need the base game, Get Adler! to play Whispers.
Inspiration has certainly come from the fascinating history of officers, moles and double-agents in MI5 & MI6. Some absorbing history can be found in Peter Wright's bestseller Spycatcher.
More inspiration: The events surrounding The Cambridge Five are captivating; as is the gripping Igor Gouzenko Affair (Soviet defector to the West), which started the Cold War in 1945. The German Enigma machine and the British (& Polish) efforts to decipher it was also amazing and inspiring.
I had already thought about adding a mole to Get Adler!, and the more I researched real history, the more amazed I became. As they say, 'the truth is stranger than fiction'.
Contents: 30 Cards in an excellent box: 26 Playing cards, 2 Character cards, 1 Special Ability card (Bonnet), 1 Rules card with Bonnet Reference.
Why should you support this Kickstarter? Get Adler: Whispers is based on history. It's a clever game that allows you to use logic and deduction skills - but is not a long brain burner. The game play is light, quick and engaging. The quality is excellent.
Some deduction/spy games out there today have the theme pasted on. They are mostly bluffing and social games. Get Adler is real, direct deduction, for those who love that genre. (with some bluffing and banter included!)

Get Adler and Whispers are being developed and produced with great care and thought, which can be seen in the amazing time-period illustrations and in the engaging game play.
In the main video you will see that we initially thought of having an airplane (aeroplane) Escape card for Whispers, but are now thinking about a train or motorcycle. Here is a new photo/graphic. Do you like it? Please join our discussion in the Update section.
p.s. I have written a short story series based on Get Adler! It is called The Adventures of Gold & Sharpe. The first two stories are on our website as Free downloads. Enjoy!
