What is SpyParty?

SpyParty is a spy game about human behavior, performance, perception, and deception. While most espionage games have you spend your time shooting stuff, blowing stuff up, and driving fast, SpyParty has you hide in plain sight, deceive your opponent, and detect subtle behavioral tells to achieve your objectives.



Behold: Lego SpyParty

Revealed briefly during the Animal Welfare Charity Streamathon, I’m proud to formally unveil: Lego SpyParty. Balcony, specifically.

This build involved a lot of weird and specialty parts: the bricks on Balcony are so prominent as to constitute a key feature of the design, so regular red Lego bricks wouldn’t cut it. Luckily, Lego makes masonry-style bricks. There are also improvised glasses on the end table and simulated throw pillows on the two-toned couches. My favorite bit is that the five large window frames are actually jail cell bars painted black.


Characters

For the characters, I tried to include some of the most popular (and memed) choices as a starting point, and ultimately settled on the ones I was able to match the best. You’ll notice Taft has a briefcase (even in Lego, he’s the Ambassador) and Queen has her dog (the closest I could find to whatever terrier mix she has in-game), though her hat wasn’t available in pink. Sikh’s turban had to be painted (ditto the rose on his lapel), too, but I think they came out looking great. The number of available options is truly amazing, from customizing the number of General’s medals, to Orange Sari’s bindi.
