Congratulations! You have completed your first mission.
Here is the information you have uncovered:
Covert is a game where players take on the roles of spies working covertly to accomplish missions. Over several rounds, players will collect the equipment needed and deploy their agents all across Europe in an effort to complete these missions. Utilize your assets. Make your move. Don’t let anyone stand in your way.
Covert is not a deduction game. It’s all about collecting resources and choosing your next move carefully You will need to make the most out of what you have while removing opportunities from your enemies. Each round you will roll your dice and place them on action spots on the board that look like this:
Each round you will roll your five dice and then place them one at a time on the board. One of the areas you can choose is shown above. Dice placed here will allow you to take various actions during the dice resolution phase.
When placing a die in one of these four action circles, a die must be placed on an open space and the face of the die must match the space where it is placed. If there is already a die on that Action Circle, then any new dice placed must be adjacent to a die already on the circle.
You will be using these actions to collect what you need to complete Mission Cards. When a player has completed 6 total mission cards, the current round will finish and the game will be over.
You’ll learn more about collecting what you need to complete missions in the future. That’s all for now. Your next mission will be revealed on BGG tomorrow.
