OneDice Spies: Cold War is a roleplaying game set in the Cold War period – a time of espionage, double agents and propaganda – where the stakes are high and the consequences of a wrong move are global annihilation!

OneDice Spies: Cold War provides the rules and information you need so you can play as a Spy – an intelligence agent, working for one (or both!) of the Superpowers; one of the exceptional men and women who relied on their training, wits and courage to complete their missions, rather than a briefcase full of gadgets or a submersible car.

Although this game is designed to reflect the tension and danger of real world spying, several “skins” are provided that offer suggestions on how to add more unusual operatives and situations to your Cold War missions.

Whatever your nationality and ideology, it is time to burn your briefing notes, collect your fake documentation and go to work.

These gentleman were kind enough to respond to all my questions concerning the OneDice line. I think the world of these men and can honestly say OneDice has helped me in my classroom as my fifth graders managed the mundane and mysterious elements of the Lost Colony of Roanoke story. Using the OneDice mechanics and a weekly American History newspaper, students were able to take on the trials and tribulations of colonial life. Of course the fact that the colony disappears without a single definitive piece of evidence as to their fate, kinda keeps things spooky!!!! :) Thank you so much for the Cold War spy game and I will buy it as soon as print copies are available, That goes for Dark Streets 2nd edition in print. Thanks again for the great work you all do. I love the products...would accept title "fanboy" as it relates to OneDice! :) Cant wait to see what you have for us........OneDice Movie Spy game - gadgets, exotic madmen, far away locations! Sorta the shakin' not stirred type of hero :) Keep up...See more

First up, I'd like to say a big thank you for your feedback and kind words. Obviously as authors we love to hear such lovely things - but in particular, I'm so pleased that you found the game helpful in your class. When I came up with the idea of OneDice, one of the things I had in mind was bringing in new gamers, but also I thought it might have potential as a way of using RPGs in formal education and in after school clubs. Hearing it was useful in school is very gratifying. I'm considering looking at how to offer it more widely in that capacity (be it through packs, franchise or some form of charitable initiative).

As for the OneDice range - we already have a manuscript for OneDice Movie Spies (Martinis and Masterminds), as well as WW2, Supers and B Movies. And there are half a dozen other titles in various stages of production.

So once again, thanks, Rusty, it's readers like you that keep us inspired! :D

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
