Our game night is drawing closer and closer! As it bears down, here’s a little description of “I, Spy”, the series we’ll be playing at the game night!

“By some twist of fate you have been mistaken for the top secret agent known as Wolf. Now you’ve been sent an assignment to stop the assassin known as The Raven from acquiring and using a nuclear device. You’ll track The Raven down with the help of a mysterious friend and use spy craft to ultimately sabotage the nuclear threat. Can you track down The Raven in time?”
