Detective: Vienna Connection
A Cold War espionage board game
Vienna Connection is a new stand-alone cooperative story-driven game for 1-5 players designed by Ignacy Trzewiczek (Robinson Crusoe, Detective, Imperial Settlers).
It offers a game night experience that lets you and your friends take on the role of CIA agents carrying out secret operations during the historic Cold War era.
Vienna Connection contains 4 missions forming one epic story, taking place across Europe—including Vienna, Prague, and Berlin in the 70s.
The game uses the Detective Investigation System introduced by the award-winning Detective: A Modern Crime Board Game, while also adding new spy and espionage themed mechanics.
Vienna Connection is a perfect choice if you like story-driven games with immersive narration and an engaging plot. This fascinating story, inspired by true events from 1970s Europe, could easily be used as a script for a top-rated TV mini-series on Netflix or HBO. So if you like TV shows like True Detective, The Spy, or Mosaic, this might be right up to your alley!
Vienna Connection is a game night experience. It’s not a single session eurogame that you play any day with any group. Instead, this is an entire game night adventure, with clues, leads, and red herrings that you will discuss hours after finishing. It involves deciphering messages and analyzing various reports and documents for evidence. If you love brainstorming with your friends—this is the game for you!
Vienna Connection is the first true spy game. If you like this genre of movies and novels, you can finally play a game about being a spy. There’s no game like it. You do everything
