Get your trench coats and code books, this show the Halflings enter the murky world of Cold War espionage with 1980s Top Secret RPG from TSR. DM Liz takes the reins as lead host, and wonÕt give it back! Thrills, chills, and treachery abounds as we strive to answer the question Can an Old School RPG have too many tables?
I enjoyed this one. Top Secret/SI was my first TSR game, although I had already been playing Star Wars, MeRP/RoleMaster, a few FASA games and Rifts by then. I saw a copy for a couple of bucks at a library sale, and it was the first time I realized that TSR actually made stuff besides AD&D. I think we only played maybe one and a half actual sessions, but I spent a lot of time rolling up spy cabals and pitting them against each other in pointless death matches using action figures as miniatures.

Funny you should mention action figures. When the GI Joe (action figure sized) figures first came out in the early 80s, some of my friends wanted us to start buying them and using them for combat minis. We were big into modern skirmish miniature wargames at the time, and on first blush it looked quite doable. Then...we looked at the price tags. Ick.
Ok, *I* looked at the price tags and said no way. My other friends were from rather wealthier families than mine...!
