CIA: Collect It All

The Central Intelligence Agency has done a lot of wild stuff over the years, so it’s probably a good policy to just not be surprised by anything you hear about connected to the agency. So it really shouldn’t come as a surprise that the CIA uses a card game to train agents. It’s called Collection Deck, which was recently declassified, and served as the inspiration for a more marketable card game called CIA: Collect It All. 

In CIA: Collect It All, “[p]layers take on the role of agents who are collecting intelligence and tackling security threats over multiple rounds.” The deck is made up of more than 150 cards, and this new version of the game is purportedly more fun at parties than the CIA’s original one.

You can check out CIA: Collect It All at the game’s Kickstarter page right here, where pre-orders for a physical copy of the game start at just under $30.
