This game first appeared in the French magazine Des Jeux sur un Plateau in 2005, but this is a new edition with spiffed up artwork by Pierô, artist of Mr. Jack and the astounding Ghost Stories, that was delayed from 2008. In Agents Doubles, which will be published at the same size as Faidutti and Cathala's Tomahawk, you know the loyalty of the various secret agents to you, but not to the other player. Thus you need to rely on deduction to keep secret documents out of enemy hands and bluffing to snatch the secrets not meant for your eyes only.
As Maublanc notes on his blog about the history of the game, the response to the first edition has led to adjustments in the game play to increase the amount of deduction required compared with the bluffing.
Update, Aug. 31, 2009: Hicham from Matagot has stated that Agents Doubles will not be ready in time for Spiel 09. Maybe next time!
