I just felt obligated to mention this here in case you are still shopping for loved ones who enjoy a good game! We received gifts this week that were intended for Christmas. Two of the games were to go to our whole family. The girls bugged us until we finally gave in yesterday and allowed them to open just those two. One game was William Stephenson's Spy Alley. Spy Alley is a registered trademark of Spy Alley Partners, L.L.P. of Maple Grove, MN.
This game can be played by 2 to 6 spies and is intended for people from 8 on up. It is NOT intended for children from 3 on down as it contains very small items that can pose choking hazards.
Spy Alley has received major awards including the following:
1. MENSA Select
2. Australian Game of the Year
3. Family Life's Best Learning Toy
4. Parents' Choice
5. Games Magazine Top 100
Now, I am not always a big game fan but I thoroughly enjoyed this one!!!
You can learn more about this game of suspense and intrigue by going to
In some ways, it is similar to Monopoly but the approximate playing time is only 45 minutes. This is one of those games that young and old enjoy!!!
