Sub Rosa - Spies for Hire

Dear Agent Double O’Dice,
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to investigate Sub Rosa: Spies for Hire. This elegant micro-game, where small choices lead to big power struggles, live on Kickstarter now!
In Sub Rosa: Spies for Hire you lead an international spy agency in its attempts to recruit the most mercenary agents to your side.  This is a bidding and bluffing microgame, designed by Robin David, for 2-4 players.
We bugged the designer's phone and here is what he was heard saying:
“We are very proud to be able to offer this elegant little game to everyone for just $12 and that price includes worldwide shipping. Sub Rosa is simple to learn and small enough to carry inside your secret dossier. It also offers plenty of tactical decisions and replay value. I can't wait to get it into people hands”. He is clearly a dangerous individual bent on world domination!

We have also intercepted communications from other agents regarding this project. Here is an example of what they have been saying:
"A fantastic microgame, because not only are you playing the game, you're playing the people… I really liked it!" – Bearded Meeple
It swans around your gaming table being effortlessly cool cuts straight to the chase and despite its brisk playing time, it’s a satisfying experience every time…” – Who Dares Rolls
There are a surprising number of factors to consider when playing this ostensibly simple game, exactly what I’m looking for from a filler.” – Creaking Shelves
"oh that was so cool... One more time!?!?" – Cloak and Meeple
(For your eyes only) - here is some background on the game designer:
Sub Rosa is designed by Robin David, a teacher by day, spy game designer by night. Robin has honed his craft over a number of years by publishing various print and play games, including the successful deduction game, The Martian Investigations. Robin currently runs the monthly boardgame playtest meetup, Playtest Dublin, so Sub Rosa has been extensively play-tested to ensure it is as streamlined and enjoyable as possible.
I have played Sub Rosa a number of times and for a small game it could be big hit! If you want value for money and a game that players of different abilities can all enjoy check out Sub Rosa - Spies for Hire. 
It's $12 price-tag includes free global shipping, so its got be worth a punt.

Back ASAP because I want to see more spies unlocked as the stretch goals are reached lol: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/robindavid/sub-rosa-spies-for-hire?token=9248f62a
