Players then play numbered location / court cards, onto the playing field. They then may place their corresponding spy token on the played card, amassing points. Players may also decide to play action cards, which interact with the cards or spies in the field.

Risks and challenges
Many of the risks and challenges stem from production and shipping. We have properly calculated and compensated for these two things to ensure that our backers will get their custom decks in a timely manner.
We will be using Game Crafter to manufacture the game and fulfillment will be done through our own sweat equity. Of course, if there any issues throughout the project, we will inform you in a timely manner and will find a way to deliver as promised.
If we do much better than expected and exceed Game Crafter's production capabilities, there will be a delay since we will need to secure a larger printer.
Production and shipping to us should take approximately 12 weeks, given there are no intervening holidays. Fulfillment will take 3-4 weeks.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
