Spy is a live-action game based on Cold War espionage methods. The game is facilitated by our website, intellops.org, but most of the action takes place in the real world. Spy is specifically designed to be played in either of two settings: universities and offices. Each operation consists of three players, and no player knows the identity of the others. Each player is assigned one of three roles: spy, handler or counterspy. The website plays the roles of Director of Central Intelligence and Director of Counterintelligence and assigns operational tasks to their respective agents. These tasks include classic espionage tradecraft methods such as dead drops, brush passes, safe house meetings, one-time pad cryptography, surveillance, counter-surveillance, etc.
Spy's most important action takes place in the real world, at dead drop sites, safe house meetings and during surveillance operations. These screenshots show some of the online aspects of SPY.
