Cold War Spy Boardgames

From io9’s Spy Week, ten espionage-themed boardgames from the Cold War. I love how gritty and serious the box art gets as the list moves from the 60s to the 70s. We had (and maybe still have) an incomplete copy of Spy Ring...

The theme lends itself to adversarial play, of course, as well as the light deduction of a Cluedo or stealth, and games with lots of bits and gadgets.

Today, the Cold War is a matter for historical gaming, and Twilight Struggle has been at the top of the Boardgamegeek poll for years now.
