Good Cop Bad Cop: Undercover is an expansion to the wildly successful hidden role game Good Cop Bad Cop. When you add this expansion, you will be able to "go undercover" and prevent players from discovering your true role--taking the intrigue of the base game to new heights!
Good Cop Bad Cop, which is required to play the Undercover expansion, has received rave reviews as a quick, easy-to-learn, hidden identity and deduction game with tons of social interaction. Good Cop Bad Cop does not require players to lie, although it presents plenty of fun opportunities to lie if that's your thing.
Good Cop Bad Cop was nominated for a bunch of awards when it debuted in 2014, including the Dice Tower's Best Party Game of 2014 and a Golden Geek Award in the Party Game category. Forrest Bower also bestowed upon it his first ever Bower's Best award. The first expansion, Bombers and Traitors, was released in 2015 and sold out immediately.
The Undercover expansion provides each player with an undercover assignment, offering new opportunities to hide Integrity cards and to take special actions. If we reach all the stretch goals, you will get 20 new pieces of equipment to help you identify the sneakiest of Kingpins and eliminate even the most resilient Agent.
Your Cover will help you conceal one of your Integrity cards, but only for a while. Each time you are investigated, your Cover will conceal the card that was most-recently viewed. Since other players can't immediately see the card you just viewed when you investigate, each piece of information you get becomes more valuable.
Your Cover also gives you one of up to 26 unique abilities that only you can use. Hand out some guns as the Arms Dealer! Protect your teammates as the Bodyguard! Set your sights on your enemies as the Sniper!
The RETAIL version has everything you need to play Undercover, while the DELUXE version adds a few upgrades and items that will not be available in the first retail print run, and may never be available in retail.
