The game is on.
Vienna Connection is a perfect choice for you if you like story-driven games with immersive narration and engaging plot. It’s a fascinating story inspired by true events from 1970s Europe. The plot, designed by Przemysław Rymer, could easily be used as a script for a top-rated TV mini-series on Netflix or HBO. The four missions presented in the box form a single epic story—so if you like TV shows like True Detective, The Outsider, 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. It’s the kind of game that you debate and discuss hours after finishing. It involves deciphering messages and analysing various reports and documents for evidence. If you love brainstorming with your friends, debating and discussing different theories and solutions—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 run secret operations, intercept Soviet reports, decode messages from the CIA—you do all things you’ve seen in movies. It is a true spy game!
