The Agents of SMERSH Are Back

May 4, 2021 - 12:08pm

Agents of SMERSH, originally published in 2012 by 8th Summit Games, has hit Kickstarter with a new “epic” edition by Everything Epic.  Agents of SMERSH is designed by Jason Maxwell and the epic edition also credits Christopher Batarlis with help in the game's design.  The all-new artwork is supplied by Shane Braithwaite.  The game plays 1-4 players, ages 14 and up, and takes about 90 minutes-2 hours to play.

Agents of SMERSH is a fully cooperative, storytelling game in which the players take on the roles of secret agents trying to track down the elusive Dr Lobo and his minions.  The new edition of the game has streamlined some of the original games mechanics and chosen to highlight the storytelling part of the game with over 2000 narrative story encounters.  Players will gain Advanced Skills, Top Secret Spy Gear, and allies  throughout the game.  These will be used to confront both henchmen and encounters along the way to eventually meeting - and hopefully defeating - Dr Lobo himself!

This fully-funded Kickstarter has about 2 weeks to go at the time of this writing.  Multiple stretch goals have been unlocked with several more on the horizon.  The rulebook is also available to peruse and a couple of videos are out there to review to help you make a decision on this project.  For more information on this “epic” game, be sure and check out the.  Agents of SMERSH is expected to deliver in November 2021.
