Spy Game Uses 3D-Style Glasses To Hide Secrets In Plain Sight

By Luke Plunkett on at

Red Scare is a new board game about espionage in the Cold War. And it’s built entirely around a very cool hook: it uses old-fashioned 3D-style glasses to hide spy secrets on the game’s cards.

They're not actually 3D glasses, since both the lenses are red. But they are done up to look like 3D glasses.

Supporting up to ten players, everyone assumes (at least superficially) the role of FBI agents working to catch Soviet spies. Only, some of the players will be Soviet spies, who are able to play by sending each other secret messages that can only be revealed with the 3D glasses.

It’ll be out in September at retail, and features some killer art by Ian O’Toole.
