Previously classified CIA tabletop games are now available for public play. Senior Collection Analyst David Clopper created games for the intelligence agency’s training programs, the existence of which Ars Technica wrote about last year. Thankfully, this prompted a Freedom of Information request which was granted, resulting in the games Collection, Collection Deck, and Kingpin: The Hunt for El Chapo being released to the general public.
If you’re curious, but don’t want to painstakingly create your own boards, tokens, and cards, the folks at Two Bats Gaming did the work and sat down to try out the games. Playing the games well is like passing an analog version of the test in The Last Starfighter except you’ll end up piloting a cubicle instead of the Gunstar One.
