Description Edit | History

The game board in Heimlich & Co. is an oval movement track, with points allocated to the various spaces. Seven differently colored "spies" are placed on the board. On a player's turn, he rolls a dice, then moves any combination of characters forward that number of spaces. The newly-moved spies then score points based on their new location. However, the trick here is that each player's color isn't known until the end of the game, so players are encouraged to deduce which color belongs to whom.

Heimlich & Co. includes advanced rules which allow players to score more points at the end of the game for correctly guessing everyone's identity. ("Heimlich", by the way, is a German adjective meaning secretly and slyly, so Heimlich & Co. translates as Clandestine and Company!)

More Information Edit | History

It is said that this is the first non promotional* game to use a victory point track going around the board (known among German gamers as a Kramerleiste). (See westpark-gamers.de interview.)
* First one of all games is Das große Unternehmen Erdgas

1 All 26 Top Secret Cards in German
I used the Spanish version files from dramaplastika (Thanks!) and translated them all to german. Also I added the missing 6 Cards. I do not have the originals as I only own the 1986 version so I had to guess from the new Amigo manual what they might look like. Any sugestions for improvemants welcome... I could translate this to English as well if needed. Please send me a message if anyone wants an english version. Enjoy
