Get your scoop back to the coop in It Flies, It Spies from Ridley’s Games!

Pssst . . . hey, guess what? The pigeons are listening! We know it sounds ridiculous, but it’s true. Have you ever wondered how news outlets get their scoops? It’s all thanks to those flying sources competing to break the next big story. And now, you’re one of them!

In this spy pigeon racing game, your mission is to navigate your winged witness along its flight path and back to News Coop where you create the headlines! But beware: watchful drones lie in wait, and your competition will do everything possible to sabotage your journey across London’s skies. You must be prepared to respond in kind, so let’s see what you’re made of.

This game is for gossips and people who will do what it takes to win. After all, there’s nothing like a bit of healthy competition. Made for ages 8+, 2–6 players, and the average agent takes around 20 minutes to complete their assignment.

Inside the box—which becomes part of the gameboard!—you’ll find 6 uniquely characterful wooden Spy Pigeons, 6 Flight Paths, 70 Game cards, 15 Headline cards, 5 Poop cards, 4 Drone tokens, and English instructions. So, you have everything you need to make a success of this story.

At Ridley’s Games, we like to make Good Clean Fun that’s as kind to the planet as it can be, so this game is made using 65% recycled materials, printed on FSC paper with soy inks, and the pigeon pieces are made from FSC wood.
 
How to Play:
Set the scene of your adventure using the game box and Flight Paths. Pick your Spy Pigeon and sit them on the Start. Now, patience . . .  Shh! Hear that?

“Well, I heard that REDACTED is using his lottery winnings to buy REDACTED. I mean, can you believe it?! I’d never have thought it of him!”

That’s the sound of breaking news! Let’s fly!

Use your cards to either move along your Flight Path towards News Coop or to play an Action that works to your advantage or sabotages your competition. You need at least two matching icons in your hand to fly forward, and the more matches you have, the more you can do! And if you find yourself splatted with Lucky Poop, then you’re in for a treat.

No matching icons? Then, it’s time for Action. You could use your cards to deploy Drones directly into the path of another Spy Pigeon, blocking their progress, or you could steal a card from another player. If things get desperate, you could add new cards to your hand, but beware: if you do that, you must move the last-placed pigeon forward! That could be you, though; wouldn’t that be great?

The first roving reporter to land safely at News Coop must shout their breaking news story from the rooftop to complete their assignment and win!
 
Who It’s For:
This game is for gossips and people who will do what it takes to win.
 
What's Inside:
6 wooden Spy Pigeon character pieces, 6 Flight Paths, 70 Game cards, 15 Headline cards, 5 Poop cards, 4 Drone tokens, and English instructions.
