"During the cold war, you’re the head of a spy agency and must try to recruit the best elements. In Secrets, your team is dire need at the beginning of the game, but it’s hard to know who your allies are. Each turn, secretly send a character to an opposing agency. The player is free to take them in, or to send them back to you. Find your teammates, fool your enemies, and become the most influential agency. But beware the Hippies, they could very well save the world. "

Secrets is a fast-paced deception game with a twist. Players begin knowing their role, but throughout the game, roles are swapped back and forth. Players go in turn order, pulling a card and choosing another player to offer it to -- but the other player gets to choose whether to accept the card, which is a secret. If the card is not accepted, the player plays the card on themselves... and these cards eventually become the score at the end of the game.
