Spy Alley is a great board game for up to six people. Players will attempt to collect spy items and land on their embassy with out anyone else figuring out their identity. Players will try to sneak around as well as try to decode what others are doing in an attempt to win. The objective is to move your spy piece from one end of the board to the other without getting caught by other players or encountering traps.

Players each choose a spy character and place their game piece at the start of the board. Players take turns rolling the dice and moving their spy along the path on the board. Along the way, players can encounter traps or other players who are trying to catch them. If a player encounters a trap, they must return to the start and start again. If a player encounters another player, they can challenge that player to a "Spy Duel" to see who continues on the path. The first player to reach the end of the board wins.

Human Question:
Which game starts with the same letter as Mancala: Chess, Uno, Monopoly, Battleship or Rummycube

Gamer says:

Is it OK to take notes, as in so and so bought an American key?
Jan Petersen says:

Under the heading "Confiscate Materials," it is indicated a Wild Card can be confiscated, but there's no mention of any amount to be paid to the player who must give up that card. Is it the intent it would be a free steal of the Wild Card or should there be a substantial fee levied such as $30 (or more) for such a valuable confiscation.
Maura Novak says:

If someone purchases something on their turn, turned in the money and then decided to take the money back. Can they do that?

Judy Cox says:

We can't figure out how to use the wild cards. Can you use two on the same turn at the end of the game? I used a move card to land on my embassy and used two wild cards to fill up my embassy row.
Hinda Hochman says:

We can't seem to find our pegs. We love the game so much we played with toothpicks, but not quite tbe same. How can we replace them?
