The successful Homeland series should be familiar to CIA fans and conspiracy theorists. The stories about the main characters Carrie Anne Mathison and Gunnery Sergeant Nicholas "Nick" Brody have already burned themselves into the brains of all of us, blurring the lines between reality and fiction. The Heidelberger Spielverlag has now announced a board game implementation of Homeland.
Board game espionage
The cover of the board game packaging does not reveal much, because series fans should be aware that it will be about espionage, betrayal and mistrust.
The semi-cooperative game for 2 to 6 players will delight lovers of agent games. Each player takes on the role of a CIA agent to fight burgeoning terrorist threats. Terrifyingly real and perhaps just at this point in time a clever move by the game makers.
At Homeland, distrust is not just an advertising promise, but a central element of the game. Which teammate can you really trust? The few known scraps of information about the game principle sound exciting and make you want more.
The rules of the game will certainly require some familiarization and will only develop their full potential after several practice games. I assume that Homeland in the board game version will be aimed at seasoned board players who like to read the rulebooks extensively and who do not shy away from fundamental rule misunderstandings.
The board game Homeland is due to appear in the first quarter of 2015. At the treacherously good price of 39.99 euros.
So there is still a little time to prepare: Homeland Unpack the DVDs and enjoy the series again to the full or iron your black suit and polish your CIA sunglasses.
