A Month of... Board Games! Day 7: “Do you expect me to take my turn?” “No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to roll this DIE!”

"Spytracker" from TV [Century] 21 Summer Extra 1965 (City Magazines, UK, 1965)

Here's the instructions for this game with a really cool design. Print the instructions, cut them out, memorize them, then swallow the paper. It will self destruct in five seconds.

Sure, the instructions may be complicated, but here's the cool part: there are separate instructions for enemy agents. Bonus: you don't have to follow the rules!

So, choose a side: the White Spy or the Black Spy (copyright ©1961 Antonio Prohías). Just remember, in the spy game, the only one who wins...are the gadget makers.
