Plaid Hat Games publica la segunda parte de Specter Ops.
Juego de movimiento oculto que nos pone en la piel de un agente A.R.K. que se infiltra en el cuartel general de Raxxon, o bien en la de los cazadores (2-4) que iran tras el, cooperativamente, para que no cumpla su objetivo.
La mision del agente consiste en activar 3 de los 4 objetivos y sobrevivir hasta escapar al hostigamiento de los cazadores que pretenden matarlo antes de que lo logre, para ello dispone de 40 movimientos, una serie de cartas de ayuda y las habilidades especiales de su personaje, entre 4 posibles.
Del mismo modo los cazadores habran de elegir entre 4 posibles, teniendo cada uno de ellos una serie de hablidades especiales que les ayudaran a mermar los puntos de golpe del agente, pero para hacerlo primero deben encontrarlo!
Ademas esta segunda parte del juego introduce 4 nuevos cazadores, 4 nuevos agentes, cartas de equipo nuevas, un tablero diferente donde desarrollar tus partidas de Specter Ops, y todo el material es compatible con la edicion original Specter Ops Shadow of Babel (https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/155624/specter-ops). Es decir que se puede jugar de manera independiente o puedes usarlo tambien en combinacion con Specter Ops Shadow of Babel.
Otra de las novedades es que añade un nuevo vehiculo y habilidades especiales para el modo 5 jugadores, donde hay un traidor entre los cazadores, a continuacion todas las novedades en detalle.

El unico inconveniente para este titulo es que viene con unas erratas en el tablero para lo que Plaid Hat Games parece que proporciona pegatinas para corregirlo (https://www.plaidhatgames.com/images/games/specter-ops-shadow-of-babel/stickers2.jpg), aunque esperemos que rectifiquen y provean de tableros corregidos a todos los compradores de su juego.
