Evil Geniuses, KGB Agents, and Bikini Girls in the Victoria & Albert Museum This October 31st!

Evil Geniuses, KGB Agents, and Bikini Girls in the Victoria & Albert Museum This October 31st!


h/t the Copplestone Castings mailing list

Nick Lund and I are getting very arty and doing a demo of the Kiss Kiss Bang Bang game at London`s Victoria and Albert Museum on 31st October as part of the Cold War Modern Exhibition.

Before then there will be lots more KKBB miniatures and scenery – Evil Geniuses (including Robo-Fuhrer), KGB men, Rogue Agents, Bikini Girls, Guards in Hats, missile silo equipment and all the doorways (from blast doors to vaults) you could ever want - and new packs from Artizan too.

At the V&A we’ll be playing two scenarios for our DIY boardgame:

A top secret US nuclear missile silo has been seized by the Evil Genius Obermass and his boiler-suited minions. Unless he is paid $1,000,000 he will use it to obliterate an idyllic small town somewhere in America. Whilst schoolchildren practise ducking and covering, a specially selected, racially de-segregated team of US agents has entered the base through a secret entrance known only to the Pentagon – they only have a short time to prevent the launch.

ICH BIN EIN BERLINER (or Carry On Under the Kurfurstendamm)
In a network of dirty and decaying bunkers underneath the Berlin Wall a group of British agents is attempting to smuggle a defecting Soviet general into the British Sector. The British team comprises our 3 top men plus several new recruits (bearing a strong resemblance to members of the Carry On team). Pursuing them is a gang of KGB heavies led by the deadly Kolonel Krepps. But all is not as it seems: the Soviet general is playing a double game. Or is he?
