Crowdsourcing Mornings: The Agents Return Card Game

Geek Alabama Crowdsourcing Mornings

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

The Agents is a deceptively simple card game; easy to learn, set up and start playing, but underpinned by intricate decision-making gameplay.  Players must join their Agents into Factions, assign Missions and take their opponents down, to gather intel and win the most points.  Featuring the captivating artwork of collaborator Danny Morison (aka Dark Mechanic), ‘The Agents’ will challenge your imagination and brain power as you plan, plot and scheme your way to victory.  The Agents gameplay is based on a unique, new mechanic they call ‘Double-edged Cards’.  Each Agent card features a ‘command’ on one end of the card and ‘points’ on the other end.


However, the direction in which you place the card will determine from which asset you benefit.  If you choose to perform the command, one of your opponents will get the points.  If you keep the points for yourself, an opponent gets to perform the command.    Throughout the game, you’ll need both commands and points to advance.  Commands will allow you to manipulate Agents, control your Factions, and influence other players.  But you’ll need points to buy more Agents and Missions.  And ultimately, the player with the most points wins.  Deciding how to place each card will require strategic precision and calculated foresight, as you try to further your own goals, and prevent your opponents from reaching theirs.

As of April 29th, this project has raised around $78,822 of their $30,000 goal. This project only has 22 days left to raise as much as it can!  For a pledge of $42, you will get the Base Set + ALL 4 Original Expansions (Mission Critical, Secret Agents, Special Agents + Partners) + ALL Stretch Goals.  For a pledge of $85, you will get the Base Set + ALL Expansions + Fancy Box + ALL Stretch Goals.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
