Inkognito was a deduction game originally released in 1988, where each player aims to find which other player (its a 4 player game, though there was a 3 player option) is their fellow secret agent and complete a mission. Each player had a secret identity, attribute and mission, and through investigating the player pawns you found out who was who and aimed to as a pair, complete the mission – you both had to agree on the solution, or lose!

I won’t review it here (see a review on BGG) but it was a nice game with a big plastic head that had 10 coloured balls in used as a randomiser. Well I now find out its to be republished by Ares Games. It’s to be an improved version, so I wonder how they will improve it? Will it be just the big head guy being replaced by a digital device?
