FlexibilityTwo Spies

Adapting and adjusting to changing conditions and expectations.

Although this game is easy to learn, it also carries quite a few variables. Which cities have bonus points, who gets to start first, whether the opponent is visible or hidden, and how each player uses their intel points can all impact the player’s next move. Because of this, it is important for a player to use their flexibility skills. They must adapt to obstacles and cope with change. If they move ahead with out re-examining their plan, they can very easily make a mistake and run right into their opponent’s location, handing the win over to their friend.


Developing and retaining information in our minds while working.

Since this is a strategy game it is important that the player takes the time to make a plan. Knowing, in general, what approach you want to use through the game as a whole is important. The player also needs to have an evolving short-term plan for each turn. Without a good plan, the player can easily make a mistake that they can’t recover from.
