Black Ops : Tactical Espionage Wargaming Paperback
by Guy Bowers
Illustrated by Johan Egerkrans, Dmitry Burmak
Part of the Osprey Wargames series
Black Ops is a skirmish wargame of tactical espionage combat that recreates the tension and excitement of modern action-thrillers such as the Bond and Bourne films.
The fast-play rules keep all the players in the thick of the action, while the mission generator provides a wide range of options for scenarios - from stealthy extraction or surveillance missions to more overt raids and assaults.
Stealth, combat, and technical expertise all have a role to play, and players may recruit a number of different operative types - spies, mercenaries, criminals, hackers, special forces, and many more - to recruit the best possible team for the job.
Players may also choose to join a faction - powerful organizations, intelligence agencies, criminal syndicates, militaries, or rebel groups, each with a stake in international affairs.
By doing so, their team may receive certain benefits, but may also find itself limited at a crucial time.
With the variety offered by the characters, factions, and scenarios, no two games of Black Ops should ever be the same!
