I don't know.  Bond feels like a weird theme/setting for a boardgame, though admittedly we've seen stranger things.

It also has Dune and Homeworld RPGs on the way.

Wait; what, now??  :o

Thanks; very cool. 


(If we lived in a real-life D&D universe, I would consistently roll low on my Search and Spot checks.  I would make a terrible Ranger or Rogue.)

There's a Rick and Morty D&D out there too.

I may or may not own it.  :biggrin:

I saw that Modiphus email recently and would be very interested in this game.

I do not know about this one. James Bond's appeal for me is the focus on the individual not the actions of criminal organizations or governments.
